Global contour pouches market is divided into side gusset pouch and standup pouch. Gusseted bags serve as a great substitute of drab flat bags. Gusseted bags offer a great option if one wants a packaging that needs to form-fit product then gusseted bags are the right choice. 

There are various usages of gusseted pouch bags. They are used in the packaging of industrial box liners on one hand and high-end retail packaging for display on the other hand and also almost everything else. 

Stand up pouch bags are further segmented into side gusset bags and bottom gusset bags.

Side gussets and bottom gussets are mutually exclusive. The designs of both bottom gusset bags and side gusset bags are such that the existence of one does not permit the comfortable existence of another. 

Both gusset types come with some unique features and those features escalate the growth of global contour pouches market. There are no strict rules that prohibit both gussets in one single pouch. However, manufacturers run into technical difficulties when they try to accommodate both in one. There are many differences between the two. The most significant differences are: 

  • Location in a bag - This is perhaps the most apparent difference. Side gussets are located along the sides of the pouches whereas bottom gussets are located just at the bottom of flexible pouches.
  • Storage efficiency - Storage efficiency refers to how effectively filled-up gusseted bags can be fitted inside a refrigerator.
  • Aesthetics – There aren’t any studies done, so far, on the aesthetics of both the gusset types. However, anecdotal evidence reveals that people opt for bottom gussets for improved aesthetics. There are more shape and size options to customize bottom gusseted pouches.
  • Sealing - Side gusseted bags come with a single seal that spans across the entire width of the side gusseted bag and runs through the bottom as well. 

Global contour pouches market is anticipated to witness growth due to its suitability for industries and products, which have very high demands on aesthetics and functionality.
