US Paper Cups and Paper Plates Market Trends:
One of the key factors driving the US paper cups and paper plates market growth is a significant expansion in the food service sector. Additionally, increasing home delivery services of food and beverages due to the advent of online food service platforms is acting as another growth-inducing factor. In line with this, rapid establishment of cafes and quick service restaurants (QSRs) and the trend of on-the-go beverage culture are also inflating the sales of paper disposables in the country. Apart from this, increasing health awareness is encouraging consumers to adopt sanitary and hygienic products, such as paper cups and paper plates, which is catalyzing the market growth. Moreover, rising environmental concerns has prompted The Federal Government of the United States (US Federal Government) to formulate policies that ban the usage of plastic products and promote its biodegradable and compostable alternatives. This, in turn, is creating a positive outlook for the market. Besides this, manufacturers are investing considerably in research and development (R&D) activities to introduce new strategies, such as advanced substrate technology, that manipulates grease and oxygen to prevent content contamination. This is projected to drive the market toward growth further. Looking forward, the market is expected to reach a value of US$ 21.92 Billion by 2027.
