ESD (electrostatic discharge) bags packaging protects various ESD-sensitive products, such as electronics and electrical gadgets and equipment, against static charges in a partial or total manner. The packaging, which is commonly constructed of polymers or metals, is typically resistant to electrostatic discharge and protects the contents from static charges in a variety of external settings. Electronics are frequently stored and sent in ESD bags and pouches, which provide the necessary visibility to identify such as sensitive objects. They are used to prevent electrostatic or static electricity from damaging electronic items in transit. There are three types of ESD bags: antistatic bags, dissipative bags, and metallized shielding bags.
Increasing demand for ESD bags from end-use industries is driving the global ESD bag market growth. This is owing to properties of ESD bag such as low cost of manufacturing process, high ESD shielding effectiveness, permanent antistatic properties, protection from contamination, and corrositivity of packaged contents.
However, growing environmental concerns regarding plastic pollution is a major factor hindering growth of the global ESD bags market. According to the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) in December 2021, around 32.02 million tons of plastic was produced in 2016 in the United States.
Among product type, antistatic bag held significant market share in the global ESD bags market, owing to its increasing demand from end-use industries such as electronic industry. Anti-static bags are used to maintain a static-free environment for the electronic product as computer components and items of similar nature can be easily damaged by static discharge.
Increasing demand for electronic products such as smartphones and tablets is expected to be a major factor driving growth of the global ESD bags market over the forecast period. Electrostatic bags are used to prevent build-up of static charge in electronic products. These bags are generally used for shipping of electronic components and devices. For instance, according to the Australian Communications and Media Authority, in April 2022, from 18.6 million users in 2017, the number of Australian smartphone users in 2021 expected to increase by 2 million to reach approximately 20.6 million smartphone users. Computer components and other similar items can be easily damaged by static discharge. ESD bags such as anti-static bags, dissipative bags are used to maintain a static-free environment for electronic products.
