Increasing waste generation is expected to drive demand for trash bags over the forecast period. According to European Commission, 492 kg of municipal waste per capita was generated in 2018. In total, 220 million tons of municipal waste was generated in Europe in 2018, which was slightly higher than the municipal waste generated in 2017 (218 million tons). Among EU countries, Denmark generated the most municipal waste per person that was 766 kg waste per capita in 2018. Other EU countries that generated more than 600 kg of municipal waste per person include Malta (640 kg waste), Cyprus (637 kg waste), Germany (615 kg waste), and Luxembourg (610 kg waste).
Growing need for waste management is expected to foster the trash bags market growth in Europe. According to the directive made by European Commission named as ‘separate waste collection’ mandatory in 2015, which means that waste will be separately collected as paper, metal, plastic, and glass waste, to improve waste management practices. The commission is also planning to launch a separate collection system for bio-wastes by December 31, 2023, and a system for textile and hazardous household wastes by January 1, 2025. These directives or regulations on waste management are expected to drive demand for trash bags over the forecast period. The European Commission directive 2018/851 recital 41 illustrates the importance of separate collection of waste. It states that separate collection of wastes increases recycling rates, enables high quality recycling, and boosts the uptake of quality secondary raw materials.

Various governments in Europe are imposing restrictions on the use of plastic bags in order to reduce their plastic footprint. These regulations are expected to result in a ban on the use of plastics and can impact growth of the trash bags market in Europe over the forecast period.
In April 2015, European Commission’s Directive 94/62/EC on packaging and packaging waste was amended by Directive 2015/720 (EU, 2015) with respect to lightweight plastic carrier bags. The amended article urges member states to take certain measures to achieve a sustained reduction in the consumption of lightweight plastic carrier bags. Such measures ensured an annual consumption of maximum 90 lightweight plastic carrier bags per person in December 2019 and 40 lightweight plastic carrier bags per person by December 31, 2025.

Europe Trash Bags Market Trends
The Key players are focusing on launching new products in order to strengthen their market presence in the Europe trash bags market. For instance, in November 2019, Novolex launched Eco Blend Max, a new line of trash can liners made with 50% post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic. These trash can liners are designed as such that fits the commonly available trash cans. In December 2019, TOWNEW Intelligent Technology Co. Ltd launched an automatic trash can named Townew. It is fitted with a refill ring that contains recyclable material to create 25 trash bags. Its touch-less design opens the lid with a wave of the hand. When it is completely filled, front button is pressed that seals the bag, opens the top assembly for the bag removal, and then closes to pull a new bag into that place.

Europe Trash Bags Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic
Outbreak of coronavirus has impacted the trash bag market in Europe. The coronavirus pandemic is expected to have a little impact on the Europe trash bags market. Increasing awareness about hygiene, cleanliness, and immunity among consumers and their concerns regarding the prevention of germs & other contaminants are expected to drive demand for trash bags during the pandemic. Moreover, people are more focused on purchasing essential products such as food, personal care, and hygiene products. In March 2020, European Commission released new guidelines for waste management in context to coronavirus crisis. The guidelines insist that patients, self-isolating at home, should have a waste bag in their room for putting the used tissues, face masks, and other wastes. Moreover, gloves and face masks used by the caretaker or cleaner should be in a second waste bag.
Key players operating in the Europe trash bags market include Cosmoplast, Kemii Garbage Bag Co. Ltd., Berry Global Inc., Novolex, Pack-It B.V., Novplasta CZ, Sro, Emil Deiss KG, Dagoplast, Achaika Plastics S.A., and Terdex GmBH.
Huge amount of waste is generated from households, schools, offices, market places, restaurants, industries, commercial complexes, agriculture, and places. Hence, trash bags are required for collection, storage, transportation, and disposal of generated waste. Increasing waste generation is expected to drive demand for trash bags over the forecast period.
Increasing waste generation is expected to provide potential opportunities for trash bags market in Europe. According to the European Environment Agency, between the time period 2010 and 2016, the total waste generation was increased by 3.0% (around 74.7 million tons) in the EU-28 countries. Absolute total waste was increased by 6.0% (48.1 million tons) and the waste generation per capita went up by 70 kg per capita. According to the same source, in 2016, water and waste (28.0%), households (23.0%), and manufacturing (21.0%) sectors generated largest shares of wastes. These three sectors produced almost 72% of all wastes in the EU-28 countries. The average amount of wastes generated per person, excluding major mineral wastes, in the EU countries was 1,783 kg/capita, in 2016.
Growing need for waste management is anticipated to boost the market growth. For instance, municipal corporations are focusing on separating the collection of waste for proper waste management. For instance, in 2011, Milan (Italy) introduced a separate collection of kitchen waste for composting and anaerobic digestion. The kitchen waste is collected twice a week via small bins with a special airy structure. This is a main driver in increasing the separate waste collection rate from 35% to 54%.
