Posted by Rishabh on September 5th, 2019

The disposable cups market is gaining prominence across the globe owing to its ease of transportation, attractive look, low impermeability, ease in recyclability, and lightweight for containers. Due to the changing lifestyle of the urban population, the demand for disposable cups is increasing rapidly. Disposable cups are produced by the thermoforming method. The utilization of disposable cups in various end-user industries, including food and beverages, packaging, and others is increasing at a rapid pace. Apart from having applications in households, they are increasingly being used in canteens, restaurants, hotels, and more. Besides, railways, airlines, and other transport means are using disposable cups for serving coffee, tea, water, and more.

Disposable cups are increasingly preferred over conventional ceramic cups and glassware owing to their unique feature. The demand for disposable cups in developed countries is increasing as they are complying eco-friendly laws and regulations. Favorable regulations and policies among developed and developing countries are playing an important role in the growth of the disposable cups market and are attracting substantial attention from the food and beverage service providers and packaging industry.

In addition, various innovations by packaging companies and organizations are playing their part in the growth of the market. For instance, Huhtamaki Group, a Finland-based specialist in packaging for food and drink, introduced Huhtamaki Adtone. The Huhtamaki Adtone cup is interactive with a QR code linking it to digital content and heat-sensitive label. The product provides highly effective advertising media. As customers interact several minutes with a coffee cup and notice the print on it, this product is perfectly fulfilling the consumers’ needs.

Further, a combination of throw away and take way culture is pondering upon the swift adoption of disposable cups across the globe with numerous food service providers, and associated sectors are the major end-users. However, as environmental movements are becoming mainstream, the disposable plastic cups are on a decline and reincarnation of disposable paper cups continues. Paper disposable cups available currently are not up to the mark, as they need to be waterproofed and reinforced to be used for hot and cold takeaway drinks. Recognizing the ban of plastics in multiple countries across the globe, manufacturers are emphasizing on biodegradable materials, including seaweed, plant-based plastics, and bagasse, along with improved paper cups, as a strategic move toward plastic-free packaging.

There is an abundance of companies offering disposable cups, both small-scale companies, and large-scale companies. Some of the large-scale leaders in disposable cups market are Berry Global, Inc., Dart Container Corp., Genpak, LLC, Georgia-Pacific LLC, Huhtamaki Oyj, Orbital Cupps, and Buyrite (Nanhai) Plastic Manufacturing Limited, among more.
