Biodegradable Tableware Market to See Business Slowdown Due to Coronavirus Pandemic, Says FMI

Apr 15,2020 | Packaging

The global biodegradable tableware market is expected to expand at a CAGR of over 6% through 2029. This growth is primarily driven by the foodservice industry and consumer environmental concerns. The commercial and institutional sectors majorly contribute to the global demand for biodegradable tableware. Convenience and hygiene are two major attributes that make biodegradable tableware an apt choice in catering services, quick-service restaurants (QSRs), and institutions.

Without compromising on quality and functionality, biodegradable tableware made from natural substrates is an eco-friendly choice for customers. Its positive impact on the environment and ease of availability are likely to boost the demand for biodegradable tableware during 2019-2029.

While governments across the world are walking an extra mile to contain the COVID-19 spread and mitigate the epidemiological numbers, economic impacts are also starting to be sensed. Amidst the coronavirus pandemic, a majority of the population is under self-isolation, which has reduced the off-premise consumption of food & beverages. This is impacting the demand for single-serve plates, cups, and other formats used for serving at foodservice establishments.

“Governments are playing a major role in the growth of the biodegradable tableware market by introducing regulatory bans on the usage of single-use plastic. Prominent players are shifting their focus on mergers & acquisitions and enhanced production capacity in order to increase their global reach in the biodegradable tableware market.”
