However, in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic taking a toll, worldwide, a majority of industries are being negatively impacted due to implications on their operating expenses (OPEX). The paper cups market is no exception; the market is expected to see a gradual dip in sales over the near future.  In addition, lockdowns following proactive social distancing by governments, globally, to alleviate the spread of COVID-19, are likely to hamper revenue growth of the paper cups market in the near term.

Key manufacturers are focused on expanding their portfolios of paper cups to better meet the growing demand from on-the-go consumers. In addition, there seems to be a key focus on design, so as to enable optimum consumer convenience. There is increased production being witnessed of to-go paper cups, especially for beverages such as coffee.

Key Takeaways of Paper Cups Market Study

  • Hot beverage paper cups account for more than 65% of the global paper cups market. This can be attributed to increasing consumption of on-the-go coffee by millennials. This age group has been known to experience nearly twice the number of away-from-home situations as compared to adults.
  • In terms of capacity, the 151 to 350 ml segment is expected to remain the most remunerative segment throughout the forecast period. Most packaged beverages are consumed in this capacity range, as consumers are increasingly becoming conscious about their sugar intake.

  • A number of consumers now prefer eating out as opposed to consuming home-cooked food. Thus, the segment is projected to create an incremental opportunity of nearly US$ 1.4 Bn over the next five years.
  • Asia Pacific continues to spearhead the growth of the global paper cups market. Improvements in infrastructure in developing countries such as India have boosted tourism, which has attracted many retailers and brand owners to expand their sales.
  • The paper cups market would experience substantial demand in developing countries during the forecast period. Key factors leading to the growth of the paper cups market in these regions are improved standards of living as well as changes in consumer lifestyle habits.
