Europe’s Garbage Bag Sales to Grow Steadily at 5% CAGR by 2026

After witnessing multiple garbage crises occurring across European countries, the European Union (EU) strives to ensure that all sorts of waste remains locked & sealed in disposable bags. Changing lifestyles and growing urbanization observed across European countries has triggered the use of garbage bags, compelling people to avert health hazards emanating from open dumping. Future Market Insights’ latest research report on Europe’s garbage bags market estimates that in 2016, more than US$ 1.5 billion worth of garbage bags were consumed. It has been projected that by the end of 2026, Europe’s garbage bag sales will rise steadily at 5% CAGR and reach US$ 2.52 billion in value.

Although, the report also reveals that in terms of volume, Europe’s garbage bags market will soar at a moderate CAGR of 3.7%. According to the report, the waste management rules imposed by EU haven’t entirely favored the use of garbage bags. The European Environment Agency has laid down strict rules that curb the use of plastic or polythene garbage bags, thereby bringing ambiguity among European citizens and civic authorities in regards to managing waste on a daily basis. Moreover, several landfill sites have been shut down across Europe over the past decade, giving rise to strikes by garbage collectors.

Presently, garbage bags manufactured in Europe are available in materials namely, polypropylene, high-density polythene, low-density polythene, and linear low-density polythene, among others. With the help of technological advancements, European garbage bag manufacturers are likely to adopt eco-friendly materials in the future. In 2017 and beyond, the demand for polythene garbage bags will remain predominantly higher in European countries. Among them, high-density polythene garbage bags are expected to gain traction. Through 2026, around 30% of Europe’s garbage bags revenues will be accounted by garbage bags made from high-density polythene materials. Meanwhile, revenues arising from sales of low-density and linear low-density polythene garbage bags in Europe will remain marginally different throughout the forecast period.
