Sandbags Market: Overview

Sandbags are used as barriers during natural disasters or extreme events like erosion control, floor control, and other emergency or permanent situations. These bags are typically made of sturdy or heavy-duty materials like plastic, polypropylene, or burlap and are filled with soil or sand for the end application. The industry refers to the stakeholders involved in the production, storage, and distribution of sandbags for various purposes. The demand for the product is highly sensitive since its requirement is directly related to events like natural disasters, weather patterns, and construction projects. These events can be predicted only to a certain limit and hence the demand is always fluctuating. For instance, regions that are more prone to flooding register a high demand for sandbags that acts as a protective agency. Similarly, a construction site may have more demand but it would be a temporary requirement. In the coming years, the demand for high-grade sandbags is expected to rise at a rapid rate.

Sandbags Market: Growth Drivers

Growing rate of occurrence of natural disasters to pull market revenue

The global sandbags market is projected to grow owing to the increasing rate at which world economies are observing climate change and corresponding natural disasters. Although some events like hurricanes and earthquakes are more common than others, the intensity of the events has increased over the last couple of years. For instance, recently Turkey witnessed a massive earthquake of 6.3 magnitudes. As per reports provided by the Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters (CRED), the world has seen more than 813 natural disasters as of 2021. Some of the most intense and frequent disasters include Cyclone Yaas that struck Bangladesh, Wildfires in countries of Canada, Greece, Australia, and the US along with droughts in Zimbabwe and Afghanistan. In addition to this, the increasing military and defense activities could lead to higher demand for sandbags. This is due to the high consumption of the barriers in various defense-related applications like protection against ballistics and explosion. 

Sandbags Market: Restraints

Growing concerns over material availability to restrict market growth

The global sandbags industry players may register a loss of demand or revenue owing to the increasing concerns over the availability of raw materials required to manufacture high-grade sandbags. One of the key raw materials used is sand and it is subject to constant price fluctuation depending on the political state of the trading nations and regulatory policies in either state. Moreover, natural disasters can severely impact the supply chains leading to higher price sensitivity. Additionally, the use of sandbags requires complete attention, and any error in filling the bag or using it can cause severe physical damage.

Sandbags Market: Opportunities

Rising investments in infrastructure development to lead to higher growth

There has been a rise in investments in infrastructure development projects across the globe. As the countries continue to invest in the economic growth of the nations to emerge as the next leading country in the currently changing power dynamics between the western and the eastern countries, the demand for sandbags may register a high CAGR. This could further be strengthened by the rapidly changing climatic conditions leading to a higher frequency of natural disasters.

Sandbags Market: Challenges

Regulatory measures to challenge market growth

Due to the growing environmental concerns over the use of sandbags, the global sandbags industry may witness the implementation of rules and regulatory policies as the impact of sandbag consumption on the environment becomes more prominent. Industry players may have to adhere to stricter laws and deploy better disposal, distribution, or production processes to meet the regulatory requirements. Additionally controlling the quality of the products is an added challenge in the industry.

Sandbags Market: Segmentation

The global sandbags market is segmented based on material, closure, and region.

Based on material, the global market segments are plastic, cotton, and jute. In 2022, the highest growth was observed in the plastic segment since the most commonly used material for the production of sandbags is polypropylene plastic or burlap. The latter is a natural fiber material that is produced using sisal plant or jute fibers. The former is a synthetic material and provides higher durability along with being lightweight. Although for a long time, sandbags made with burlap were more popular since they are biodegradable, the last couple of years has witnessed higher growth in plastic sandbags since they can be reused and are resistant to water. A typical sandbag used for erosion or flood control weighs around 50 pounds.

Based on closure, the global sandbags market divisions are zip seal, heat seal, and drawstring. The highest CAGR was registered in the drawstring closure segment in 2022. This type of technique requires using a string or tying a knot to close the opening side of the sandbag once it is equipped with inner material. The method is simple yet effective making it a preferred choice among users. They can also be loosened with quick steps when the bag is not in use. A standard plastic sandbag costs between USD 0.5 to USD 2 per bag.

Recent Developments:

  • In February 2023, Singhal Industries Private Limited, an Indian company, announced the launch of new sandbags that can be used as flood control barriers. The company claims that the product is revolutionary in terms of controlling water flow during the flood and comes in different shapes and sizes
  • In February 2023, Auckland, a region in New Zealand, registered sandbags even though the quantity of sand available was higher than expected. The emergency situation arose due to a sudden demand for sandbags as cyclone Gabrielle was approaching the area
  • In March 2023, Weber County, a part of the Utah region of the US, braced itself for the impact of possible flooding. The leaders of the region launched a program offering sufficient sandbags to prevent damage from the natural disaster
