Paper Bag & Disposable Plastic Product Wholesaling in the US
Over the five years to 2018, the Paper Bag and Disposable Plastic Product Wholesaling industry has experienced modest growth due to rising per capita disposable income and growing demand for industry products. Many paper products remain household necessities, and as disposable income increased, consumers opted for higher-margin options. However, industry revenue is expected to decline over the next five years due to increasing price competition. Moreover, business and consumer concerns over the environmental impact of plastic and paper will gain importance over the five years to 2023. As a result, industry operators will need to cater to environmental concerns to succeed in the industry.
Wholesalers in this industry purchase a range of paper and plastic products from manufacturers and distribute them to retail stores, food service outlets and agricultural producers. Industry products are wide-ranging and typically include sanitary and tissue products, disposable cutlery and food trays, cartons, plastic and paper bags, paper party goods and cardboard packaging. This industry does not include the wholesale distribution of stationery or office supplies.
