Global Paper Bags Market

Paper Bags are lightweight, non-toxic, biodegradable, and recyclable. They are widely used in different industries like foods and beverages, retail markets, chemicals, etc. Also, they do not cause any harm to the environment. They are available in different sizes and designs. Further, growing modernization, increasing individual income, and rapidly changing lifestyles are augmenting the growth in the global market. Paper bags have become a part of our lives. Increasing consumerism and the retail market have led to the boom in the market during the forecast period. Due to the government policies regarding the ban on plastic bags due to environmental concerns, the market for paper bags is likely to surge. Also, these bags are very cheap in price so anyone can afford them. For Instance: After the introduction of the legislation of ban on plastic bags in 2019, plastic bag distribution in grocery stores fell on average by 70 percent, which avoided the use of 40 billion plastic bags. Within seven years, the number of bags used by shopping malls and supermarkets reduced by two-thirds. As a result paper bags will be used as an alternative. This will lead to growth in the market of paper bags. However, the recent COVID-19 outbreak has hugely affected key end-users of paper bags such as retail, food, beverages, and others impeding the growth of the market over the forecast period of 2020-2027. Rising environmental concerns and industrialization will lead to growth in the paper bags market.
