The global quad seal bag market is anticipated to expand at a steady CAGR over the forecast period 2021-2026.

Quad seal bag (also referred to as side gusset, self-standing, block bottom pouch, flat bottom pouch or box pouch) is a flexible 3 layer bag made of laminations, typically, the outer layer (PET or MET PET), the barrier layer (AL or VMPET) and the inner layer (LLDPE). These lightweight bags are named after their 2 long vertical panels and 2 gussets, which are further joined together with four vertical seals. The sealed sides make this pouch remarkably strong and durable and ideal to support heavier volume products. The absence of back sealing along with the weight of the products give the pouch its shape and dimensional stability and allows it to stand easily in shelves and cartons even with additional fillings. The aluminum foils used in the bags act as a barrier to oxygen, UV light, and moisture diffusion while retaining the product’s aroma and elongating the shelf life.

Some advantages of quad seal bags include: excellent shelf appeal and utilization, a modular-premium quality design and look, up to 4 panels for effective brand messaging strategy, up to 10 color rotogravure printing and up to 15% savings of raw materials. Quad bags offer various customization options as per market requirements and can also be equipped with various optional consumer and marketer convenience features.

This specialty bag is majorly popular for packing specialty commodities such as high quality tea, coffee, IQF, candy, snacks and pet foods etc. but is flexible for the storage of many other items across many different industries.


The primary factors influencing the growth of the market include: the soaring acceptance of quad seal bags globally, the rapidly surging consumer demands for flexible packaging solutions across different industries, the burgeoning popularity of side gusset bags in the packaging industry and the increasing number of applications of the quad seal bags across major industry verticals etc.

Additionally, the manufacturers in the quad seal bags market, over the years have been increasing their research and development activities for launching new and advanced quad sea/side gusset bags with added safety and convenience features. Some of the most notable developments in the recent years have been in the form of digitally printed customized pouches, quad seal bags made with sustainable solutions by using different categories of totally bio-degradable plastics and the introduction of additional variants of bags such as the complete seal bags and visible quad seal bags etc. This factor is expected to drive considerable demand for quad seal bags in the next few years and also add to the overall growth of the quad seal bags market during the forecast period.

Moreover, the packaging industry is indubitably driven by the changing perceptions & preferences of the consumers across different industries around the globe. The demand for flexible packaging over all other formats due to their added convenience is currently on the rise and thus, the demand for quad seal bags as a flexible packaging option which provides more food and household product offerings along with room for customization and product visibility is expected to sail through in the years to come.

Furthermore, other factors such as increasing availability of wide number of accessories with quad seal bags catering to the different requirements of the consumers, rising competition among the market players and the proliferating awareness regarding the recyclable value of the quad seal bags among the people are further anticipated to create immense growth opportunities for the growth of the quad seal bags market.

However, the relatively higher production cost and the level of technical expertise associated with the production of these bags may hinder the growth of the market during the forecast years.
