What are the Challenges Faced by the Paper Cone Cup Industry?

Amid rising concerns about the hygiene and safety of reused packaging during the COVID-19 pandemic, demand for paper cone cups experienced a substantial decline, leading to a temporary demand contraction, especially in the initial quarter of 2020.

Moreover, the traditional paper cups can replace the paper cone cups for many purposes. Traditional paper cups start the table in the disposable cup sector and are expected to hamper the market growth.

In addition, stringent laws put on the deforestation in response to increased environmental concerns, will further halt the growth of the paper cone cup market during the forecast period.

How is North America Emerging as an Opportunistic Paper Cone Cup Market?

North America is the largest market for paper cone cups and the trend is expected to continue into the forecast period attributed to the proliferation of fast-food chains and the expanding popularity of portion-controlled intakes in the U.S., which can be attributable to this need. Moreover, increased foot traffic has resulted in a considerable increase in vending machine numbers, which is projected to feed demand for paper cone cups in the region.

As environmental concerns have grown, non-biodegradable plastic cone cups have been phased out in favor of paper cone cups across the region. As a result, overall paper cone cup sales in the region are increasing. Furthermore, rising consumer awareness of health issues has prompted the use of paper cone cups as a more hygienic, reusable alternative to plastic cups. A CAGR of 3% is projected for the paper cone cup industry across North America.
