Reusable Shopping Bag Market: Growth Drivers

Numerous benefits of reusable shopping bags drive market growth

The reusable shopping bag market is predicted to grow throughout the forecast period due to the multiple benefits it offers, such as durability, cost savings, and a lower environmental effect. Most reusable bags are made from high-quality, long-lasting materials. Compared to single-use plastic bags, which are prone to ripping or breaking easily, they are typically more durable and less likely to cause garbage or pollution. Furthermore, reusable shopping bags have a cheap beginning cost. Customers who bring their bags can occasionally obtain discounts from shops, and because reusable bags endure for years, buying new bags less frequently may save money.

Additionally, single-use plastic bags are one of the leading causes of pollution in the environment. They harm species in landfills, the ocean, and other natural habitats, where they take hundreds of years to degrade. Switching to reusable bags can help save the environment by reducing the amount of plastic waste created. Therefore, the aforementioned benefits significantly drive the market expansion.

Reusable Shopping Bag Market: Restraints

Presence of lead impeding market growth

Recent research found that reusable supermarket bags contain lead, a potentially harmful poison to the environment. Also, printed bags are known to contain more lead than unprinted bags. When these bags are discarded, the lead is expected to leak into groundwater, posing a significant environmental concern. Another issue is that the lead-based paint may begin to peel, affecting the food in the bags. Consumption of such food is likely to result in lead poisoning and harm human health.

Studies and studies are currently being undertaken to determine the level of lead in these bags and how the potential danger might be reduced. Thus, hampering the reusable shopping bag industry over the projected period.

Reusable Shopping Bag Market: Opportunities

Rising public and private initiatives offer a lucrative opportunity for market growth

The growing public and private initiatives are expected to offer a lucrative opportunity for the reusable shopping bag market during the forecast period. For instance, in April 2023, with two reusable bag pilots in three states, the Consortium to Reinvent the Retail Bag—managed by Closed Loop Partners—announced its largest pilot program to date. Participating retailers included CVS Health, Target, and DICK'S Sporting Goods, as well as Sector Lead Partners Dollar General, The Kroger Co., TJX, and Ulta Beauty.

Expanding upon three years of observations, investigation, and field testing, the Consortium is introducing its comprehensive strategy to minimize the trash generated by single-use plastic bags to significant in-market initiatives. The two complimentary pilots, when combined, will involve more than 150 outlets and national and local businesses in testing a variety of solutions designed to encourage customers to adopt reuse.

Reusable Shopping Bag Market: Challenges

Developing bacteria poses a major challenge to market expansion

People often reuse these supermarket bags without cleaning them first. This will result in the growth of dangerous bacteria and other microbes in the bag. According to studies, such bags serve as 'hubs' for the spread of hazardous bacteria known as 'coliform'. However, there is a solution to this problem: wash the bags regularly.

Reusable Shopping Bag Market: Segmentation

The global Reusable Shopping Bag industry is segmented based on type, application and region.

Based on the type, the global Reusable Shopping Bag market is bifurcated into Polyester, Jute and Cotton and Polypropylene. The Jute and Cotton segment is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period. Jute and cotton are natural fibers that are biodegradable and renewable, making them eco-friendly options for reusable shopping bags. Consumers are increasingly looking for environmentally friendly products, which is boosting demand for bags comprised of these materials.

Based on the application, the global Reusable Shopping Bag industry is categorized into Foodservice, Retail, Garment Industry and Others. The retail segment is expected to capture a majority of the market share during the forecast period. Numerous retailers use reusable shopping bags for branding and promotional purposes. They may provide branded bags to clients as part of loyalty programmes, promotional efforts, or corporate social responsibility projects. This not only encourages customers to use reusable bags but also highlights the retailer's brand and values.

Regional Analysis

North America is expected to dominate the market over the projected period

North America is expected to dominate the market over the projected period. The regional expansion of the market is attributed to the growing consumer awareness and increasing emphasis on sustainable products. Moreover, the country's fast-paced lifestyle and increasing retail market penetration are pushing the use of plastic bags. According to MRI Simmons statistics, 79.93 million customers used two bags on average every seven days in 2020, whereas 92.88 million consumers did the same. Furthermore, the growing product launch in the region also offers a potential opportunity for market growth. For instance, in August 2022, KeepCool, a US-based sustainable packaging company, created reusable bags made completely of ocean plastic for retail giant Costco.

The Out of the Ocean bags are available in three-packs at all Costco locations in San Diego, California, and online at outoftheocean.com. The extra-large capacity bags have a dual strap for carrying in hand or over the shoulder and interior compartments for sauce jars or olive oil bottles. KeepCool claims that each Out of the Ocean reusable shopping bag removes the equivalent of three plastic bottles from seas and rivers. The decision is consistent with the company's objective of creating a circular economy for ocean plastic through reduction, reuse, and recycling. On the other hand, Europe is expected to hold a prominent market share over the forecast period. The regional growth is attributed to the growing emphasis of government on circular economy.
