Global Mini Desiccant Bags Market 2022 – 2030

Reports Description

According to Custom Market Insights (CMI), The Global Mini Desiccant Bags Market was estimated at USD 156.34 million in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 180.32 with a CAGR of 1.9% during the forecast period of 2022-2030. 

The mini desiccant bags are portable, flexible white packets covered with highly durable and resistant desiccant materials. These packets are widely used in multiple industries to prevent packaged materials from corrosion and moisture. Due to their moisture-absorbing capacities, these bags are highly demanded across various industries, so the increase in demand for production from several industries will enhance desiccant bags’ production. Besides moisture absorption, these bags are also used for cleaning waste, regenerative drying, etc. The major components of the desiccant materials are silica gel and molecular sieve.

The silica gels are extracted from the sand and have a high absorption capacity, which is used in packaging materials. Molecular sieves are also used as desiccant materials in lower relative humidity at lower materials. Molecular sieves are customized pore materials made of different sizes and constituents of zeolites. These zeolites are made of crystalline solids of uniform size and composition. Unlike silica gels, molecular sieve desiccant bags are used in extreme environmental conditions.

Growth Factors

The wide usage of desiccant bags across various industries drives the market growth for mini desiccant bags.

The high demand for desiccant bags from the food, packaging, and pharmaceutical industries drives the market growth for desiccant bags. These packages use desiccant bags to increase the product shelf-life and absorb moisture so that the product remains fresh for a longer time. 

The increased consumer base, along with the transformed lifestyle, propels the mini desiccant bags 

In regions like the Asia Pacific, there is a high demand for desiccant bags from food brand owners and packaging industries. The rapid shift of people toward the fast-paced lifestyle, packaged meals, and increased consumer base drives the market growth for mini desiccant bags.

The wide usage of desiccant bags in military-based applications boos the desiccant market

Desiccant bags are widely used in military applications to prevent equipment from corrosion and degradation due to moisture and are also used to control odor. Such factors drive the market growth for mini desiccant bags.

The rise in the emergence of key players will enhance the desiccant market in the upcoming years

The rise in adoption of the key strategies of the companies, along with the increase in demand from the consumer for smart packaging, is likely to propel the market growth in the forecast period.

The frequent production of items from electronic industries and the need for moisture prevention are likely to boost the desiccant market over the coming years

The electronic industries need desiccant bags to prevent their electronic equipment from moisture, which will increase the demand for desiccant bags in the coming years. Some electronic equipment requires the maintenance of lower humidity, requiring specific desiccant bags such as bentonite desiccant bags.

Ozone Generation Market Segmentation

The ozone generation market is segmented based on technology, Application, end-user, and region.

Market segmentation based on the Type

Based on Type, the desiccant bags market is bifurcated into silica gel, molecular sieve, and activated carbon and calcium chloride bags. The silica gel segment has dominated the market in 2021 and is expected to grow at a significant CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the high demand for silica gel bags from packaging, pharmaceuticals, electronics, etc.  

Silica gels are a widely used form of the desiccant bag, which contains silicon gels that absorb moisture from the packages. These gels have color-changing properties, such as turning from blue to pink when it has absorbed moisture. Until it changes its color, it can be reused. Silica gel desiccant packets are usually non-toxic, but they should be kept out of the reach of children. The silica gel bag consists of the naturally found compound silicon dioxide, which can be extracted from the sand. 

Market segmentation by Application

Based on end-user analysis or Application, the mini desiccant market is segmented across various industries like food, medical and pharmaceutical, electronics, beauty and personal care, and others. Based on the revenue, the food industry has held the largest market share of 34.6% in 2021 and is expected to grow at a significant CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the frequent demand for desiccant bags in the food industries to remove moisture from packaged food products and retain their freshness for longer. Such factors lead to the desiccant market growth and are expected to further enhance the market growth over the coming years.

Silica gels are the most common desiccant bags used in food packaging. Silica gels have color-changing properties which determine the absorption of moisture from packages. If the color changes from blue to pink, it indicates moisture absorption. Otherwise, it can be reused. On the other hand, the lime-based desiccants are in granular form, which will turn into a powdery form after absorption and saturation. These bags are widely used in food as well as other industries.
