Shopping bags are immensely useful for people in their daily shopping activities. Increasing income of the global population and standards of livings have provided an edge in the demand for these products. Companies are constantly focusing on developing high-quality bags to give a luxury shopping experience to the people. The introduction of bio-degradable bags has immensely helped the companies to cater to the growing trend of environmentally sustainable products. Also, companies widely use recyclable ingredients in the design of the bags to reduce the CO2 footprint.

Moreover, manufacturers are emphasizing on developing different colored and fashionable bags to attract consumers to purchase these products. Nowadays, companies are promoting their products through their innovative marketing and promotional campaigns. Companies are targeting the commercial segment to develop custom bags for their corporate clients. For instance, the Prahu Naidu Company is focusing on designing bags in a variety of shapes and sizes for D-Mart stores across India.

Rising global demand for household & personal care related products along with the introduction of newer FMCG brands is projected to drive the demand for the shopping bags. Rising trends of physical & online shopping activities have flourished the consumption of these products. Additionally, shifting consumer preferences towards luxury, and premium grocery products, fuel the demand for the variety of shopping bags.

Growing infrastructural facilities related to the shopping malls and convenience stores provide ease in the shopping activities by the people and thereby foster the demand for these easy to carry handbags. These products are commonly given by shopping stores to wrap up the grocery products and to deliver them to the customer. However, the large availability of low-cost grocery bags is anticipated to restrain the demand for luxury shopping bags and thereby, limit the growth of the market. Additionally, a sudden disruption in the international supply chain network due to the COVID-19 outbreak is expected to hinder the growth of the market.
