The top three revenue-generating end-user segments in the global plastic packaging sacks market are discussed below:

Construction sector

“The construction sector is the leading end-user segment of the plastic packaging sacks market, responsible for generating over 30% of the overall revenue. The packaging of construction materials requires a large number of packaging bags, which is responsible for the high revenue generation from this segment,” says Sharan Raj, a lead analyst at Technavio for packaging research.

The growth in this market segment mainly originates from developing countries, such as India, China, and Brazil, where rapid urbanization is underway. Therefore, the growth in the construction industry will directly impact the growth of the plastics packaging sacks market.

Chemical and fertilizer sector

The chemicals and fertilizers sector has a high demand for packaging products such as plastic packaging sacks and rigid industrial packagings like drums or intermediate bulk container (IBC). The leading consumption of plastic packaging sacks from the chemicals and fertilizers segment will arise from APAC, Africa, and the Middle East. Also, since China holds the largest share in the global chemical production market, the country alone creates a significant demand for packaging sacks. Additionally, the growing fertilizer industry from emerging APAC markets is expected to boost the demand for plastic packaging sacks during the forecast period.

Horticulture sector

“In the horticulture sector, plastic packaging sacks are primarily used for packaging fruits and vegetables, sprouts, seeds, and flowers. Potatoes, onions, and tomatoes are the most widely packaged vegetables, whereas bananas, apples, and grapes are the fruits that are packaged extensively,” says Sharan, explaining the demands of the market segment.

The demand for horticultural products is set to showcase an upwards trend to cater to the needs of the rising global population. The growth of the horticulture industry will result in the constantly increasing demand for plastic packaging sacks, thereby driving market growth.
