- The global market for padded mailers consists of a large number of unorganized and regional players that are segregated as Tier 3 players, which include BETA (ShenZhen) Package Products Co.Ltd., Wanpow Plastic Industries Sdn. Bhd, ARIV PAK Mailers HQ, and Suzhou Star New Material Co., Ltd, among others.
- FMI study observed that padded mailer manufacturers primarily use polyethylene for manufacturing padded mailers as this material is relatively cost-effective than kraft paper. Manufacturers are also focusing on providing customized padded mailers as per customer requirements. For instance,
- In November 2018, Pac Worldwide Corporation launched a durable, lightweight bubble mailer to reduce the holiday packaging waste. The PACjacket3 system provided by the company has a multi-layered structure of coextruded polyethylene film to form the package exterior.

Polyethylene to Soon Overtake Kraft Paper
Although kraft paper has been the material of choice among padded mailer manufacturers, polyethylene overtook it in the previous year in terms of revenue generation. In addition, kraft paper is relatively expensive as compared to polyethylene, with a single unit costing ~US$ 0.15. LDPE (low density polyethylene) and LLDPE (linear low-density polyethylene) will remain highly preferred materials in global padded mailers market. However, with regulatory concerns surrounding plastics, there are strong chances of other alternative materials replacing polyethylene in padded mailers. During the latter half of the forecast period, polyethylene would witness a gradual decline in its market share against alternatives such as paper cushions, and inserts and drivers. Recyclable plastics are also emerging attractive.
Asian Markets Generating Substantial Demand
Growing at a promising rate, East Asia will surpass North America for the first time in 2022, and Europe in the next few years. The region is followed by South Asia in terms of growth rate. In protective packaging industry, Asia Pacific (APAC) is foreseen to outpace its regional counterparts, primarily attributed to surging demand from food & beverages and consumer electronics industries. FMI’s analysis reveals that as E-commerce expansion in Asia is peaking, the demand for padded mailers will heighten rapidly, particularly in fast developing economies such as India, China, and Indonesia. In-transit safety and security of delicate electronic goods and other product categories continue to generate demand for protective packaging formats such as padded mailers.
Bioplastics - Potential Game-Changer in Padded Mailers Market
Manufacturers of padded mailers and bubble mailers have been majorly banking on plastics as a starting material. However, as the industry accelerates its shift towards non-plastic, sustainable material alternatives, recyclable and bioplastics are emerging lucrative. FMI reveals that worldwide production of bioplastics surpassed 2 MT units in 2018, with ~65% of volume share held by the packaging industry. Prominent players in padded mailer market are also opting for recyclable bubble sheets. Polycell Corporation is developing eco bubble incorporating a mixture of oxo-biodegradable additives and polyethylene resins, which can be partially degraded. Jiffy Packaging Co. Limited is manufacturing green bubble, containing 50% of recycled materials.
High demand for kraft paper
Polyethylene to see bio-based innovations
Peal-and-Seal mailers gains significant traction
Steady demand for self-sealing mailers
Manufacturing and warehousing industries remain top consumers
Application in E-Commerce increasing at a rapid pace
How Growth will Unfold
Although manufacturing and warehousing industries have been leading their way in terms of demand for padded mailers, the progress of pharmaceutical and electrical & electronics industries also reflects massive opportunity facing durable and protective packaging manufacturers. Padded mailer sales in E-commerce will exceed the market value of US$ 1 Bn by the end of forecast period, a majority of which comes from developed regions. While developed regional markets will continue to reap the first-mover advantage in case of E-commerce adoption, developing regions still continue to struggle with the increasing demand for warehousing space for E-commerce expansion. This remains a key factor influencing consumption of space-saving padded mailers in developing markets.
