- Growing demand for paper cups
Increase in demand for packaged foods and beverages
“Globally, there is a rise in demand for packaged foods, which has propelled the growth of packaging products such as paper cups and paperboard containers. Consumers prefer paper cups and containers as they are lightweight and easily disposable,” says Sharan Raj, a lead analyst at Technavio for packaging research.
Paperboards such as folding cartons are increasingly used by bakeries and fast food restaurants. These products are microwaveable and reheatable and are commonly used for frozen or chilled foods and ready-to-eat meals. The rising demand for baked and packaged food products will, therefore, drive the growth of the paper cups and containers market.
Increased use of paper in bakery packaging
Bakeries utilize paper and paperboard containers primarily for packaging take-out and making disposable products like wraps, bakery sheets, cake boxes, and cups. Bakeries use various kinds of packaging paper including parchment paper, cooking paper, butter paper, and waxed paper. These products provide grease and heat resistance and are non-reactive, which makes them perfect for storing baked goods. The high demand from the baking industry will, therefore, create a significant boost to the growth of the market.
Growing demand for paper cups
Technavio analysts have projected the global demand for paper cups to rise at a rate of 2.54% through 2021, with major demand generating from fast food restaurants and coffee shops. Paper coffee cups are typically odorless, colorless and are available in various shapes and sizes.
“Consumers and manufacturers use paper cups as they are environment-friendly and convenient to use. Hence, there will be a global increase in the demand for paper cups and related products over the forecast period, thereby boosting the growth of the market,” says Sharan.
