Paper Cups Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024

The global paper cups market reached a volume of around 316 Billion Units in 2018, growing at a CAGR of 2.7% during 2011-2018. Paper cups are a type of disposable cups used for consuming food and beverages such as tea, coffee, soft drinks, and soups. These cups are coated with polyethylene, the most common plastic resin, which helps to increase their durability and performance by preventing the condensed moisture from soaking in and retaining flavor. With their hectic lifestyles and busy schedules, consumers nowadays utilize paper cups to save time and effort as these cups do not require cleaning and can be easily discarded after use. The demand for paper cups has also been influenced by the rising trend of takeaway services and ready-to-eat food across the globe.

Disposable Paper Cups Market Report

Global Paper Cups Market Drivers/Constraints:

The environmental damage caused by plastic cups has led various organizations to encourage the utilization of paper cups due to their eco-friendly nature, which has created a positive impact on the global paper cups market.

However, the availability of cheaper substitutes, such as plastic, Styrofoam and glass cups, pose a major threat to the sales of paper cups across the globe. By 2024, the market is projected to reach a volume of 356 Billion Units, registering a CAGR of 1.8% during 2019-2024.
