The IBC is popular as it is reusable, durable, easily handled, stored and shipped, and uses space more efficiently than other containers. It also has an advantage in that it may be either purchased or leased.

A vast array of items from building supplies, paints, chemicals, and petrochemicals to food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, healthcare products, and commodities are shipped in tote tanks. According to one research study, the IBC market is set to cross a US $10 billion market soon as the packaging industry shifts away from plastics and plastic-based composites, with 80% of the IBC market being the food and beverage, industrial chemical, and building and construction industries.
