Global Trash Bag Market to Accumulate a Valuation of US$ 19.5 Billion by 2034, Advancing at a 5.6% CAGR

To reduce the plastic footprint, governments and related regulatory bodies are imposing bans on plastics, resulting in the countrywide prohibition of plastics that could affect the trash bag market. Increasing demand for easily disposable and eco-friendly garbage bags and awareness regarding environmentally sustainable products is expected to drive market growth.

NEWARK, Del, Feb. 05, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global trash bag market is anticipated to reach a valuation of US$ 11.3 billion in 2024, driven by circular economy initiatives. The trend is expected to create new opportunities for the market, leading to a projected CAGR of 5.6% between 2024 and 2034, and reaching a total valuation of approximately US$ 19.5 billion by 2034.

The increasing trend of single person households may impact the demand for smaller sized trash bags and packaging solutions suitable for individual needs. Ongoing product innovation in terms of design, ease of use, and additional features can attract consumers and drive market growth. Corporate and consumer initiatives to reduce overall packaging waste may lead to the adoption of thinner, lighter, and more ecofriendly trash bag options.
