Surge in Price of Raw Materials and Labor Shortage to Hamper Production

Jumbo bags are generally made from raw materials such as polypropylene and polyethene. It is estimated that raw materials account for approx. 60-70% of the total manufacturing cost of jumbo bags. Fluctuation in prices and availability of raw materials are major constraints in maintaining competitive prices of jumbo bags for Asia Pacific manufacturers.

Production of jumbo bags is a labor-intensive process. Lack of adequate skilled manpower hampers the production of jumbo bags or FIBCs in emerging economies of Asia Pacific.

Jumbo bags manufacturing industry is an export-oriented sector. The fluctuation of the forex market leads to a decrease in the firm’s revenue from exports, which affect the firm’s profitability. This is a major restraint in the production of the jumbo bags in emerging economies.

China is the world’s largest producer of chemicals, contributing 35.8% of global chemical sales in 2019. Of the various end-use industries that use jumbo bags, chemical industry is a major segment. With high growth in the chemical industry, the demand for jumbo bags is also rising across the world. In 2019, global chemical industry value accounted for US$ 3,938.5 Bn.
