Jute bags enjoy high overseas demand due to eco-concerns

Exports of shopping jute bags from Bangladesh are rising due to eco-concerns demand for biodegradable bags in the global market. Jute bag manufacturers of the country export around 100,000 shopping bags in a month to various countries.

As few of the European countries are likely to ban polythene bags in the year 2010, manufacturers of jute products are expecting increase in shipments of jute bags next year.

Shopping jute bag, is the most popular product among other jute goods, witnessing high import demand as European and American consumers are opting for durable eco-friendly bags.

In 2008 most of the jute bags were exported to Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, UK, USA, Canada, Japan, Switzerland, South Korea, and France.

Ban on non-biodegradable bags and declaring the current year by the United Nations as 'International Year of Natural Fibres' increased the demand for jute bags.

This demand will probably widen next year as France, Germany and also the US are likely to ban the use of polythene bags and looking for an alternative.

More and more retail chain stores across the globe are avoiding use of polythene bags and opting for natural-fibre bags.

A UK-based retail chain requires around 1 million shopping bags made of natural-fiber in a month, which it buys from India.

The jute fabric procured from domestic market proves to be costlier for the domestic jute bag makers, than those imported by Indian importers from Bangladesh, which proves to be a disadvantage.

As the demand of jute bags is increasing more and more, one of the jute manufacturing companies in the country is going to establish a new manufacturing unit in Tongi, which will start its operation in coming month.

People in this sector believe that Bangladesh can strengthen its foothold in the billion-dollar shopping bag market. While the jute bag manufacturers in the country say, that they could multiply their production as well as exports if government support was forth coming.
