Ban on Plastic Bags Creating Opportunities for Packaging Nets
Packaging nets are manufactured from environmental-friendly plastics like polyethene and polypropylene, which are used to hold products weighing around 1-10 kg. The packaging industry has evolved from plastic to biodegradable packaging material. In 2016, around 335 million metric tonnes of plastic was produced globally, from which, nearly half was for single purpose use only. Most of this plastic produced is used for manufacturing plastic bottles and plastic bags. Every year, around 4 trillion plastic bags are used worldwide, which causes a significant amount of waste and is polluting the oceans and lands, which is harmful to the environment.
Awareness about plastic pollution among the masses has resulted in an amplified demand for packaging nets. Biodegradable or compostable packaging nets are used for covering products, mainly fruits and vegetables. Packaging nets are mostly utilised in supermarkets and grocery retail stores, and with the growing demand of packaging nets, manufacturers are developing packaging nets with better tensile strength and weight bearing capacity. Packaging nets are extensively used to cover toys and sports goods, having high penetration in consumer goods packaging.
With the growing retail industry, there lies huge opportunity for manufacturers of packaging nets to grow their businesses, not only in the domestic market but international markets as well, as this attracts significant groups such as retail packaging suppliers, supermarkets, and others for packaging nets.
Biodegradable Packaging Nets the New Trend in the Market
Packaging nets are readily available in the market, and are booming in emerging countries since the past few years.

Extruded nets have a more significant share in the market in comparison to knitted nets, due to high strength and tear resistance properties of the product, making them suitable for broader applications. Knitted packaging nets are available in different designs and mesh sizes, depending upon the implementation of the product. Some of the products using knitted technology are Monofilament bags, which are woven synthetic bags or knitted bags manufactured by keeping a fine mesh size, and can carry a weight of up to 30 kg. Tubular netting is another knitted packaging net used for the automatic packaging of fruits and vegetables, and this is used to carry a weight of up to 5 kg.
Regarding the application of packaging nets, there is food products packaging and non-food products packaging.
