The plastic bags & sacks are developed from two type of plastic materials, which are biodegradable and non-biodegradable. In 2017, more than 85% of plastic bags & sacks were manufactured from non-biodegradable materials such as HDPE, LDPE, LLDPE, PP, PS and other plastics. The non-biodegradable plastics are the highly preferred material for the production of plastic bags & sacks, due to cost effectiveness & abundant availability of the material. As compared to non-biodegradable plastics, biodegradable plastic consumes large amount of resources for processing, leading to higher cost of the material. Biodegradable plastic bags & sacks are eco-friendly and decomposable as compared to the oil-based plastics (non-biodegradable plastic).
Non-biodegradable plastic bags & sacks are expected to be highly attractive in terms of incremental opportunity and market share by the end of 2026. For manufacturing of non-biodegradable plastic bags & sacks, polyethylene material is most preferred. In 2017, more than half of plastic bags & sacks were made up of LDPE and HDPE plastics. Polypropylene plastic bags & sacks segment is expected to register a CAGR of 3.6% during the forecast period.
Europe region is estimated to be the largest geographic segment in the global non-biodegradable plastic bags & sacks market in 2018. In the European plastic bags & sacks market, LDPE & HDPE is expected to reach a cumulative market share of more than 60% during the forecast period. PS (Polystyrene) and other non-biodegradable plastic bags & sacks market segments are projected to witness sluggish growth during the forecast period.
