Paper Cups Market Analysis: Hot Beverage Paper Cups to Account for Around 2/3rd of the Global Paper Cups Market Value Share in 2018

According to Future Market Insights’ latest market report titled “Paper Cups Market: Global Industry Analysis 2013 – 2017 and Opportunity Assessment 2018 – 2027”, increasing focus of end-users on eco-friendly foodservice solutions expected to escalate the growth of paper cups market, during the forecast period. Globally, the revenue generated by the paper cups market has been estimated to be around US$ 8,094.5 Mn in 2018 and is projected to increase at a CAGR of 4.0% in terms of value during the forecast period.

The global paper cups market is segmented by end-user as foodservice, institutional and household.

The foodservice segment is estimated to account for around half of the global demand for paper cups. The full service restaurants are reluctant towards the adoption of foodservice disposables as the usage of reusable tableware is economic, as well as satisfies consumers. Majorly fast food service outlets, coffee shops, and other beverage outlets are the major consumer of the paper cups within foodservice segment. Starbucks, one of the globally known leader in global beverage foodservice outlets, has created a benchmark in the annual consumption of paper cups, and also collecting used paper cups for recycling to fresh paper cups. Advancement in printing technology has played a crucial role in the improved adoption rate of paper cups. Various complex printing technologies such as litho-offset, flexo-offset, digital and other printing techniques are capable of efficiently printing aesthetic graphics on the curved surface of paper cups.

In institutes where using reusable cups is not a feasible solution, demand for paper cups is rapidly developing. Majority of the institutes and public places in the developed economies of Western Europe and North America region are equipped with self-service vending machine for providing consumers snacks and beverages. Paper cups are also placed within the vending machine to serve the beverages. Thus, institutional segment is projected to witness rapid growth in the paper cups market.

The paper cups are generally differentiated on the basis of application as hot drink paper cups and cold drink paper cups. Both the paper cups differ on the basis of adhesive or sealing mechanism incorporated by the manufacturer. The waterproof coating layer is slightly thick in the hot drink paper cups as compared to cold drink paper to control the permeation of hot beverage to the sealed edges of paper cups. Moreover, key global market players are engaged in development of paper cups to make them perfect solution for hot beverages. For instance, Georgia-Pacific LLC introduced double wall hot paper cups equipped with air pockets to provide effective thermal insulation to the end-user. To add the waterproof characteristics to the paper cups, polyethylene (PE) coating is majorly incorporated. Polyethylene is rapidly replacing wax and clay coating which were primarily used to waterproof the paper cups until the introduction of polyethylene. Gradually, PE coating for paper cups is getting replaced by Poly Lactic Acid (PLA), which makes the paper cups completely bio-degradable.
