Key Factors Shaping Disposable Cutlery Market

Fast-paced Lifestyle and On-the-Go Meal Trend to Propel Growth of Disposable Cutlery Market

The global disposable cutlery market growth is fuelled by the expansion of quick service restaurants, which rely heavily on disposable packaging suitable for foodservice. Apart from restaurants and cafes, disposable cutlery is expected to witness lucrative growth opportunities from end users such as cinemas, catering, and other such places that offer ready-to-eat and on-the-go meals. Other factors that are likely to provide momentum to the growth of disposable cutlery market are increased demand for gourmet coffee and specialty cold drinks.

The foodservice industry is expected to witness substantial growth during the forecast period, owing to improvements in the economic condition of developing countries, adoption of fast-paced lifestyles, and rapid urbanization. The On-the-go meal trend is gaining traction across a lot of countries. This is expected to create a steady demand for disposable cutlery in the foreseeable future.

Growth of Home Delivery and Online Foodservice Platforms to Benefit Manufacturers

There has been a considerable shift in the consumer consumption patterns in the food and beverages sector. On an average, online food delivery platforms in emerging countries such as India, offer over 40% return on investment. This is leading to an intense competition across food delivery platforms among food service companies, and ensuring lucrative opportunities for manufacturers of food disposables and single-use cutleries. Consumer preference for takeaway or ready-to-eat food is increasing particularly in emerging economies, attributable to the growing disposable incomes. Moreover, corporate work culture increases adoption of out-of-home food habits, which is also anticipated to strengthen growth of the disposable cutlery market over the forecast period.

Increasing Preference for Wood-based Disposable Cutlery to Boost Sales

In recent years, there has been a rise in demand for biodegradable disposable cutlery made from wood due to imposition of stringent laws and regulations against the use of plastic disposable cutlery. Nowadays, consumers prefer eco-friendly disposable cutlery made from wood for food service. This is expected to boost adoption of wooden disposable cutlery in the foreseeable future.

  • In 2018, KFC, McDonald's, and several other fast food chains stopped using plastic disposable cutlery and straws in several countries including India, Singapore, and France. All these fast food chains now use wooden disposable cutlery and paper straws as a replacement for plastic disposable cutlery and straws.
