### How to Calculate Poly Bag Consumption in Apparel Industry?

Polybag is an important material in the readymade garments sector. As a result, poly bag consumption is too much needy for the garments merchandisers. Though, there are so many who still don’t know the correct method of poly bag consumption calculation. This article will be very effective for them.

#### Poly Bag Consumption Calculation Method in Garments Industry:

We know, the poly bag is produced from polymer. So, poly bag consumption can be calculated by calculating the required amount of polymer in the poly bag.

Before starting the poly bags consumption calculation, a garments merchandiser should confirm the following information:

1. Length of the poly bag in inch,
2. Poly bag width in inch,
3. The thickness of poly bag in gauge,
4. ½ flap of the poly bag (Flap is single layer and width of the poly bag is double layer),
5. of print on the polybag (Print can be any type of logo, text, warning, etc.).

Now, by using the below formula, we can easily calculate the poly bags consumption in the apparel industry.

Poly bags consumption (for 1000pcs in kg),

Now, one example is enough to remove all kinds of confusion from the above discussion.

#### Example:

Suppose, for a garments export order (10,000pcs), the buyer “H&M” suggests the below information about the poly bag.

Length of the poly bag- 30”,
Poly bag width- 25”,
The thickness of poly bag- 160 gauge,
½ flap of the poly bag- 3”,

Now you have to calculate the poly bags consumption for the above order.

#### Solution:

Poly bags consumption (for 1000pcs in kg),

= 40 kg per 1000pcs poly bag.

So, for 1000pcs poly bag, LDPE polymer needed 40kg.

And,

For 10,000pcs poly bag, LDPE polymer needed= (40 × 10) = 400kg.

Good article
but do not understand the 3300 sources.
From where have you taken 3300?
Why you do not divide by 1000
