COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The outbreak of novel coronavirus has put a dent on expected growth of the paper bags market. Besides disruptions across manufacturing units, the market had struggled with scarcity of raw materials, non-operational supply chain, shutting down of logistics units, unavailability of labors, among other factors during extended periods of lockdown. The key market players are however working hard to strengthen their infrastructure to continue manufacturing quality products.

Who is Winning?

Competition in the paper bags market is likely to get fiercer in the coming years. Companies are therefore increasingly focusing on recycled materials for the production of quality paper bags. Some are even pushing product launches to gain competitive advantage.

For instance, RonPak has launched their extensive range of paper bag products such as carry out, pinch-bottom, wraps, and others with SQF certification and manufactured with optical brightener with black light detection of glue in the recent year.

JohnPac has launched their exclusive multi-wall paper bags with diverse range of styles such as sewn open mouth, self-opening sack, pinch bottom open mouth, sewn valve, pasted valve stepped end, and others in the current year.
