ESD (Electrostatic Discharge) bags such as anti-static bags, metallized bags, and conductive bags are used for storing electronic component, which are prone to damaged caused by electrostatic discharge (ESD). It is made from plastics such as Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) and polyethylene. The bags have three distinctive colors: silvery for metallized film and pink or black for polyethylene. ESD bags are used to prevent electrostatic damage of electronic items during transportation. Electrostatic discharge is the sudden flow of electricity between two electrically charged objects caused by contact, an electrical short, or dielectric breakdown.
Global ESD bags market was valued at US$ 384.8 Million in 2021 in terms of revenue, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.9% during the forecast period (2022 to 2030).
Rapid growth in packaging industry is one of the major factors driving growth of the global ESD bags market. The Indian packaging industry is witnessing steep growth and is one of the strongest growing Industry. For instance, According to the Indian Institute of Packaging (IIP) in October 2020, the Indian packaging industry is expected to reach US$ 204.81 billion by 2025 from US$ 50.5 billion in 2019 at 26.7% annually growth rate. Anti-stats bags are used in various industries such as electronics, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals. These bags prevent electronic devices from electrostatic discharging (ESD) that may occur during movement or shipping of these devises.
Rising demand for electronic items such as smartphones, laptops, and tablets, is projected to promote the growth of the ESD bags market in order to minimize static charge build-up in such electronic devices. For instance, according to a report published by the World Trade Organisation, in December 2020, the demand for the computers and electronic components has recorded a positive growth in the second quarter of year 2020 with a growth rate of 10% to 11%.
In terms of revenue, North America held significant market share in 2021, owing to increasing use of devices such as mobile phones, tablets, and laptops. Increasing use of these devices is expected to propel demand for ESD bags such as anti-static bags for packaging electronic components and devices in order to protect from mechanical and electrostatic damage. For instance, according to the U.S. Census Bureau report in April 2021, the number of smartphone users increased significantly by the year 2018 the number of smartphone users increased by 84% and the number of laptop and computer users increased by 78%. Moreover, according to Consumer Technology Association (CTA) 2018, unit volume shipping of smartphones in the U.S. is expected to increase by 2% and reach US$ 189 million by the end of the year 2018, while revenue is expected to increase by 3% to reach US$ 62.9 billion in 2018 in the U.S.

|Restraints & Challenges:||
ESD bags are used for the transport of electronics to prevent the electronic static discharge which is a key trend in the market. Static-Shielding bags simulate a Faraday cage effect for the electronics inside them, completely protecting them from a direct electrostatic discharge and building up static electricity. Static-Shielding bags are used for sensitive electronics that could be damaged by an electrostatic discharge. This is the key trend in the ESD bag market.

Among product type, anti-static bag segment held a significant market share 47.76% in the global ESD bags market in 2021, owing to increasing demand for its applications in electronics industry. Major application of anti-static bag is packaging of electronic products. Computer components and items of a similar nature can be easily damaged by static discharge. Anti-static bags are used to maintain a static-free environment for electronic products.
Major players operating in the global ESD bags market include 3M Company, Miller Packaging, Protective Packaging Corporation, Digi-Key Electronics, Daklapack Group, Dou Yee Enterprises (S) Pte Ltd., Advantek, Inc., Teknis Limited, Edco Supply Corporation, Naps Polybag Co, Katzke Paper Co, EcoCortec, Transcendia, Cortec Corporation, and Electrotek Static Controls Pvt., Ltd.
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.
