October 28, 2022 | Packaging

IMARC Group’s latest report, titled “Trash Bags Market Report by Type (Drawstring Bags, Star Sealed Bags, and Others), Material (High Density Polyethylene, Low Density Polyethylene, Linear Low-Density Polyethylene, Bio-Degradable Polyethylene, and Others), Size (3 to 13 Gallons, 13 to 50 Gallons, Above 50 Gallons), Distribution Channel (Supermarkets and Hypermarkets, Convenience Stores, Specialty Stores, Online Stores, and Others), End User (Residential, Commercial, Industrial), and Region 2024-2032,” finds that the global trash bags market size reached US$ 12.2 Billion in 2023. Trash bags, also known as garbage bags, refer to lightweight, disposable plastic bags used to collect and dispose of wet or dry trash. They are also used to line the insides of garbage bins and cans to hold the waste while keeping the container clean and minimizing the foul smell. They are easy to use, cost-effective, and usually manufactured from polyethylene. They offer excellent strength, durability, leakproof, and resistance against tear, chemicals, and moisture. They aid in the disposal of solid waste and wet garbage, such as food scraps. They also assist in storing small and loose items and keeping the products waterproof. As a result, trash bags are widely used across the residential, commercial, and industrial sectors.

Global Trash Bags Market Trends:

The rising concerns regarding hygiene and cleanliness among the masses represent the primary factor driving the market growth. Apart from this, the increasing waste production due to the expanding global population and rapid urbanization has accelerated product adoption rates. Additionally, there has been widespread product adoption to store and carry waste efficiently while eliminating the risk of spreading diseases or infections. In line with this, the shifting consumer focus toward new trash bag breakdown methods and processes has augmented product demand. Furthermore, governments of various countries are implementing bans on single-use plastics owing to the growing environmental consciousness. Consequently, the leading manufacturers are introducing compostable, biodegradable, and recyclable trash bags to minimize the plastic footprint, thereby positively influencing the market growth. Besides this, recent advancements in waste processing methods and garbage transportation and distribution facilities have catalyzed market growth. Moreover, the rising strategic partnerships and mergers and acquisitions (M&A) among key players to increase their profitability and expand their product portfolio have propelled market growth. Other factors, including the surging use of waterproof trash bags in the automotive industry, inflating consumer expenditure capacities, ongoing product innovations, and extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are also creating a favorable market outlook. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 21.6 Billion by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 6.5% during 2024-2032.
