Market Overview:


Bulk Bags are non-woven jumbo bags that are manufactured with woven polypropylene fabric. Bulk bags possess qualities like weather resistance, high durability, safety convenience carriage, high tensile strength, heat resistance, stretchable material, no shrinking, and capacity for mass quantity carrier. Bulk bags are so designed to fulfill storage and transportation purposes. They are a rare combination of environmentally efficient and cost-effective. Bulk bags or FIBCs (flexible intermediate bulk containers) could replace the usage of sacks.


The major drivers of the bulk bag packaging market are manufactures and producer's shift of focus towards highly protective and effective solutions for domestic and international shipments and sales. The bulk bag market deals with the replacement of cardboard and wood packaging with contamination-free, recyclable, and reusable packaging solutions. With the skyrocketing adoption of bulk bags in agricultural, industrial, and pharmaceutical industries the demand for bulk bags has spurred in the sectors like food, fertilizers, chemicals, construction, mining, and others. Many companies have shown interest in investing in the bulk bags market growth.


The global bulk bags market is showing great potential to achieve a market valuation of USD 4956.7 million by 2023 with a CAGR of 6.80% during the forecast period (2018-2023), reveals Market Research Future (MRFR). The report further incorporates drivers that can take the bulk bags market further in the coming years.
