The Global Slider Storage Bags Market size was valued at USD 13.2 Million in 2022 and is expected to surpass USD 21.56 Million by 2031, expanding at a CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period, 2023 – 2031. The growth of the market is attributed to the increasing use of slider storage bags for food packaging and rising demand for easy packaging solution.
A slider storage bag is a transparent, highly flexible, and cost-effective bag to store several products especially food items. It is generally made up of polyethylene or similar plastic such as PVC owing to certain properties such as high tensile strength, strong water resistance, and durability.
Slider storage bag refers to a bag that can be closed and opened several times by a slider that works in the similar way as a zip locker does. These bags are also used for storing food products such as vegetables, meats, and others for a longer duration as the seal does not allow the air entry. This protects the food from being infected or bacterial attacks during the storage. Using these bags ensure safety of the products during transport since the packaging prevents from leakages or contamination. This is estimated to increase the sales of these self-adhesive bags in the coming years.
