Market Analysis

The trash bag consumption is rising globally and can be attributed to the rising population, resulting in increased waste generation. Increased disposable income and rising awareness regarding hygiene, particularly in developing nations, have resulted in the increased demand for trash bags. Star sealed segment is considered environmentally friendly as it is composed of recycled plastics and can reduce plastic waste by 25%. Their unique design structure helps to prevent leaks, messes, and spills and are compatible with all sizes of trash cans. The design structure of these bags allows both dry and wet waste to be held in them. In addition, star-sealed trash bags have a high capacity to carry waste, maintain equal weight distribution, and are user-friendly. The star sealed segment is predicted to account for the largest industry share in the global industry and is expected to grow rapidly during the forecast period. The lack of government support and taxes and bans on the consumption of plastic bags are some major constraints that may hamper the industry growth.
