This market research report presents a detailed segmentation of the global packaging sacks market by end users (construction sector, chemical and fertilizer sector, food sector, horticulture sector, and other sectors), by raw materials (jute, plastic, and paper), and by geography (the Americas, APAC, Europe, and ROW). The leading vendors in this market are Sonoco, Global Pak, Hood Packaging, LC Packaging, and Mondi.

Overview of the global packaging sacks market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict the global packaging sacks market to grow at a CAGR of more than 2% by 2020. The rising demand for plastic-based packaging sacks is one of the top drivers that will lead to the growth of this market during the forecast period. Plastic packaging is increasingly replacing paper and jute packaging due to its flexibility, durability, lightweight, and low-cost properties. Furthermore, as plastic-based packaging is suitable for all types of packaging products such as food, chemicals, and fertilizer, its demand among the end users will grow significantly over the next few years.

A recent trend emerging in the market is the increasing demand for high-barrier packaging sacks. This type of packaging solution contains high-barrier resins, which provide better protection from moisture and oxygen and extends the shelf life of food products. High-barrier packaging sacks have a specialized coating and laminated structures along with resins that allow better performance than any other packaging products. Some of the high-barrier plastics that are gaining popularity among the consumers include biaxially-oriented polyethylene terephthalate (BOPET) and ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH). Due to their numerous advantages, high-barrier plastics are mainly used in the food and chemical industries. Dow, for instance, has made recyclable barrier films using RETAIN polymer modifiers, which helps in the recycling of films without affecting the quality of the barrier film.

The packaging sacks market in APAC is expected to grow at a CAGR of nearly 3% by 2020. Factors such as increasing demand for packaging sacks and strong production and consumption of packaging sacks in developing countries like China and India will drive the prospects for market growth in this region. The food and construction sectors have also increased their demand for packaging sacks, which, in turn, improved the GDP growth rate of APAC countries as these regions have excellent infrastructure and good transportation systems.
