Market Trends

Waste management is a growing global concern as it poses a serious threat to the eco-system and human health. According to the United Nations Environment Program, about 11.2 billion tonnes of solid waste is collected globally. This has forced administrative bodies all over the world to take active measure for waste collection and spread awareness about proper waste disposal. This has increased the adoption of trash bags worldwide as an efficient waste management solution. The environmental hazards caused due to use of plastic bags have led to introduction of bio-degradable garbage bags. Recently, due to the global pandemic, the consumer awareness for health and hygiene has increased, which have boosted the trash bag market. The use of trash bags for disposal of bio-hazard wastes in hospitals have also increased significantly.
