These air cells give a cushioning effect to the goods during any harsh transportation. Moreover, dunnage paper bags are robust in nature and prevent crush injuries at edges and corners where most commonly any damages take place.

How are the Growing Cargo and Logistics Industries fueling the Growth of Dunnage Paper Bags Market?

In today’s world, transport is the key for manufacturers’ trade, mainly for cross border trade. IATA states that the value of international trade shipped by air would be nearly US$ 5 trillion, which is less than 1% of world trade by volume, however, is responsible for more than 35% by value.

Moving of goods from one end of the world to another is essential for better economy of countries and dunnage paper bags assist in secure transportation of goods. It is a known fact that shipping of goods is either done via railways, airways, or seaways. Shipping and cargo industries use dunnage paper bags for cargos as this assures reduced damage and secures the products during transit.

Dunnage paper bags restrict the movement of cargo loads in overseas, truck containers or in railways.

Secondary Factors responsible for driving the Growth of Dunnage Paper Bags Market

As already mentioned, there is a huge demand for dunnage paper bags in the food industry, especially in the packaged food products. Dunnage paper bags are a great substitute for metal cans used in the packaged food products; as compared to metal containers, dunnage paper bags act as a much better barrier to gas and water vapor transfer.

This process helps in precluding oxidation processes which result in faster degeneration of dry foods such as cereal, chips, pretzels, etc., and therefore leads to better and extended shelf life and at the same time preserving the quality and taste of the food.

Artificial chemicals are used in the manufacturing process of packaging materials which can many a time be hazardous. Since majority population today are aware of the problems associated with health and safety, several manufacturers are leaning towards the adoption of eco-friendly packaging materials like cardboard bokes which are made from recycled paper. They are also using polyethylene terephthalate (PET) to decrease the waste of packaging materials. This also ensures safety of environment from pollution and saves money too.

During the forecast period, recession in shipping containers market could adversely affect the global dunnage paper bags market. Ever-changing trade strategies and uncertainty in trade policy affects the trade between nations. Since 2008-09, international trade has faced headwinds from slowing economic growth, particularly in primary market for commodities as well as finished goods. The slowdown in both value and volume of international trade, successively affected the shipping industry across the continents which impacts the global dunnage paper bags market.
