The global paper cups and paper plates market reached a value of US$ 112.8 Billion in 2021. Looking forward, the analyst expects the market to reach US$ 128.5 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 2.3% during 2022-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Paper cups and paper plates are made from paper-based materials and are often coated or lined with plastic or wax to prevent the contents from soaking through the paper. As consumers are nowadays becoming more sanitation and hygiene conscious, they prefer disposables over the reusable utensils. They are extensively used for serving food and beverages like tea, coffee, soft drinks, instant noodles and sweet corn. Currently, there is a wide variety of different paper cups and plates available in the market, which vary in size, form and texture.

On account of their lightweight, cost-effectiveness, biodegradability, and ability to provide air resistance, internal strength and stiffness, paper cups and paper plates are extensively being utilized in the food and beverage industry. Also, they do not require cleaning and can be easily discarded after use. Apart from this, there has been a rise in the influence of westernization and increasing fast food consumption in developing regions. This has led to an escalated demand for paper disposables for packing food and beverages. Besides this, paper cups and plates are significantly more biodegradable as compared to plastic and foam counterparts and tend to take lesser time to get decomposed. Moreover, manufacturers are also coming up with new strategies, such as advanced substrate technology, to prevent the contamination of packaged food items by grease and oxygen. This is projected to further augment the demand for paper cups and paper plates globally.
