US Paper Cups and Paper Plates Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025

The US paper cups and paper plates market size reached US$ 21.0 Billion in 2019, growing at a CAGR of 1% during 2012-2019. Paper cups and plates are eco-friendly and leak-proof disposables that are made out of recycled paper. These disposables are lined with wax or plastic, which prevent leaking or soaking of liquid through the paper, thus improving the durability of the cups and plates. Widely available in a variety of sizes and shapes, they are extremely lightweight, convenient to use and carry, recyclable and safer to use as compared to plastic or Styrofoam variants. They are extensively utilized for serving food and beverages, including tea, coffee, soft drinks, instant noodles, pastries, cutlets and sweet corn across both commercial and institutional establishments, such as cafes, canteens, schools, offices, bakeries, hospitals and other commercial spaces.

The market for paper cups and plates in the US is primarily driven by the well-established food and beverage industry in the country. Characterized by a hectic lifestyle of the majority of its population, the US stands as a witness to a steadily increasing fast food consumption. In line with this, the on-the-go coffee culture has led to the expansion of prominent coffee shops, which has provided a boost to the sales of paper cups and plates for serving and packing beverages and snacks. Moreover, the growing consciousness among consumers regarding the importance of hygiene and sanitation has impelled them to replace reusable utensils with disposables, thereby providing a thrust to the market growth. Furthermore, numerous eminent brands, such as Starbucks, are now replacing plastic packaging with paper cups and plates, owing to the enhanced focus towards sustainable development. Several market players are also introducing 100% recyclable, biodegradable or compostable paper disposables made with fiber-based raw materials. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 21.9 Billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 0.66% during the forecast period (2020-2025).
