Globally, the revenue generated from sales of heavy duty bags & sacks has been estimated to be around US$ 11,165.6 Mn in 2018 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 4.0% by value, during the forecast period.
Heavy duty bags & sacks are highly durable and efficient packaging solution for most of the end use industries. Heavy duty bags & sacks can sustain more weight than regular bags. Also, heavy duty bags & sacks offers cost-effective and space efficient solution for packaging. Heavy duty bags & sacks can be easily stacked and transport. Heavy duty bags & sacks are generally manufactured using plastic and paper materials.
In the heavy duty bags & sacks market, plastic is expected to dominate, with LDPE (Low-Density Polyethylene) being the leading plastic material used. This is attributed to the characteristics it possesses, i.e., LDPE has excellent chemical resistance, high tensile strength, better thermal coefficient, low water absorption, and above all, lower cost when compared to its counterparts. All these properties make LDPE a suitable choice for the production of heavy duty bags & sacks. The heavy duty bags & sacks find useful applications in chemicals & fertilizers industry due to their high resistance to chemicals.
LDPE is followed by HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene), and polypropylene as the prominent plastic material types used for the production of heavy duty bags & sacks. In the heavy duty bags & sacks market, polypropylene material is majorly used for the production of woven sacks. Woven sacks are primarily used in the agriculture industry to store harvested crops due to their excellent resistance to moisture and temperature. Apart from plastic, paper is a highly sought out material for the production of heavy duty bags & sacks. The heavy duty bags & sacks made up of paper are preferred due to their low cost, high durability, and environment-friendliness.
Paper-based heavy duty bags & sacks are entirely degradable. Rising stringent regulations against the use of plastic bags by several government organizations across the globe are pushing the demand for paper-based heavy duty bags & sacks market. However, less compatibility with changing environmental conditions might be a demerit for heavy duty bags & sacks made of paper. Jute, on the other hand, was once considered the most promising material for the production of heavy duty bags & sacks. However, the improvement in different material types coupled with the disadvantages of jute will hamper the growth of jute in the global heavy duty bags & sacks market during the forecast period. Overall, the demand for heavy duty bags & sacks is expected to be positive.
Heavy Duty Bags & Sacks Market Is Expected to Witness Lucrative Growth
The growing production from the manufacturing sector is expected to propel the demand for the global heavy duty bags & sacks market during the forecast period. The global economy is supposed to witness growth during the next decade backed by the gradual increase in gross domestic production of some of the most prominent economies of the world. The growing infrastructure across the globe and rising demand from agriculture industry is supposed to drive the growth of heavy duty bags & sacks market.
Heavy duty bags & sacks are easy to manufacture and offer a number of added benefits which go a long way in making them an ideal preference in the market. Also increasing use of recycled content is expected to drive the demand for heavy duty bags & sacks in the countries that imposed ban on the use over single use plastic products.
The global heavy duty bags & sacks industry, with plastic as a major material, is observing an ongoing trend of strategic mergers and acquisitions.
