Soft loop bags are multi-purpose plastic bags, used as ready-to-carry bags for various consumer goods. These bags have a high strength to weight ratio, this makes them suitable for a wide range of kinds of products. Commonly used soft loop bags are made of low-density polyethylene (LDPE). Soft loop bags find large scale application in retail packaging as they provide increased stability to fragile goods and provides an upscale appeal to the package.
Manufacturers provide soft loop bags with and without gussets. Soft loop bags with gussets are expandable and this facilitates their use for short-distance travel. Storage in these bags restricts movement thereby reducing the possibility of breakage. Thus, side loop bags with gussets are estimated to account for majority of the share in global soft loop bag market and are likely to have a positive outlook in the years to come.
