Westford, USA, Dec. 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — In the United States shopping bag market, approximately 100 billion plastic shopping bags are used each year. -It takes about 12 million barrels of oil to make that many plastic bags. -It would take the equivalent of nearly 50 million cars off the road for a year to offset the greenhouse gases emitted from making all those plastic bags. -The majority of Americans (75% percent) say they would be likely to use reusable shopping bags if stores gave them a discount for doing so, and if the bags were more convenient to use. -Most people surveyed by SkyQuest (84 percent) said they reused plastic shopping bags for other purposes, such as trash can liners or packing materials. -Although paper shopping bags require more energy and water to produce than plastic bags, they generate less pollution.

Trend Analysis: Personalized Shopping Bags are Gaining Momentum in Global Shopping Bag Market

In its trend analysis of the shopping bag market, SkyQuest found that sales of reusable shopping bags have grown significantly in recent years. This is largely due to concerns about the environmental impact of disposable shopping bags. Reusable shopping bags are made from a variety of materials, including cloth, nylon, and polyester. They come in a variety of sizes and shapes, and can be used for a variety of purposes, including grocery shopping, carrying books, or storing items.

In recent years, the shopping bag market has seen a number of trends that are likely to continue into the future.

  • One of the most notable trends is the move away from plastic bags to more eco-friendly options such as reusable fabric bags or paper bags. This is being driven by both retailers and consumers who are becoming more aware of the environmental impact of plastic bags.
  • Another trend is the move towards designer shopping bags. This is being driven by the increasing popularity of luxury brands and the desire of consumers to show off their personal style.
  • There is a trend towards more personalized shopping bags. This is being driven by retailers in the global shopping bag market who want to create a more unique customer experience and by consumers who want their purchase to reflect their personality.
  • The rise of e-commerce: The growth of online shopping has had a major impact on the shopping bag industry. E-commerce companies such as Amazon have disrupted traditional retail models, and as a result, shoppers are increasingly opting for home delivery over in-store shopping.
  • Innovations in bag design: As the market for reusable bags grows, so too does the need for innovation in bag design. Companies are now offering a wide range of reusable bag options, from foldable bags to ones made from recycled materials.

Survey Reveals Consumers and Retailers in Global Shopping Bag Market are Shifting from Single Use to Reusable Bags

In its annual survey of shopping bag and consumer behavior, SkyQuest found that shoppers are becoming more conscious of the environmental impact of their choices and are increasingly seeking out reusable bags. According to the survey of the global shopping bag market, 43% of respondents said they always or usually buy reusable bags, up from 40% last year. When asked what would motivate them to use reusable bags more often, the most popular response was “to help the environment. “Concern for the environment was also reflected in other choices made by shoppers surveyed by Gartner. For example, nearly half of respondents said they had bought “eco-friendly” products in the past year, and 41% said they were willing to pay more for such products.

When it comes to reusing shopping bags, it was found that shoppers are most likely to reuse bags from grocery stores (67%), followed by department stores (47%) and clothing stores (46%) in the global shopping bag market. The survey also found that shoppers are more likely to reuse bags if they receive a discount for doing so (63%) or if the store offers a loyalty program (56%).

When asked what would cause them to stop using reusable shopping bags, the most popular response was “if the store stopped offering them” (cited by 73%), followed by “if they became too expensive” (cited by 41%). Other reasons included “if I forgot to bring them with me” (cited by 39%), and “if they became inconvenient to use” (cited by 38%).
