Bulk Bags Market Trends




  • Rising food and pharmaceutical industries across the world is driving the market growth




Bulk bags are utilised in a variety of end-use industries, including waste management, building & construction, chemical, pharmaceutical, agricultural, mining, and culinary. Because of the expanding pharmaceutical business globally as a result of an ageing population and an increase in chronic diseases, the need for bulk bags in the pharmaceutical sector is anticipated to increase more quickly. Due to their minuscule weight, flexible intermediate bulk containers reduce the overall weight of bulk packaging. Multiple Bulk Bags can be folded and pressed together to be kept in a small area.Bulk Bags are constructed of polypropylene (PP), a flexible woven material, and may store 500 kg to 2,000 kg of weight. Commonly used to store dry and flowable goods including grains, seeds, salts, chemicals, sands, clays, cement, and others are these flexible intermediate containers. Bulk bags are mostly used in industrial settings to handle raw, semi-finished, and finished grains and small-size materials.


Forklifts are used in industrial settings to mechanically handle filled flexible intermediate bulk containers. Bulk Bags are inexpensive, lightweight, and simple to handle. Bulk Bags are widely utilised in the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, agricultural, and chemical industries as a consequence of the advantages they provide. Their adoption rate in bulk packaging is noticeably higher than that of rigid and corrugated packaging due to the aforementioned advantages. The bulk bag market is expected to grow as commercial activity increases globally. The necessity for bulk bags for packing and shipping hazardous liquids, cereals, fertilisers, and other products has increased with the expansion of international trade operations. For instance, bulk bags are getting more and more well-liked across a range of end-use industries. The need for PP jumbo bags is primarily being driven by the chemical and product sectors globally. Bulk bags may also be used for storage and transportation, which makes them very convenient to handle and promotes the expansion of the bulk bag market. Additionally, the Bulk Bags' low price makes them a more sensible packing option.


Additionally, businesses included in the bulk bag market are developing packaging solutions to satisfy the expanding end-use sector demand and are concentrating on new goods with enhanced features. For instance, Greif, Inc. released SealGuard in 2020 to address common issues with applications for bulk bags used in the food, pharmaceutical, and chemical industries. In order to produce Bulk Bags more automatically, the company set out to create a completely new set of material and manufacturing process improvements with SealGuard.Thus, driving the Bulk Bags market revenue.
