Market Analysis

The global plastic cups market is being driven by the rapid urbanisation and increasing per capita incomes of the consumers across the globe. The global working population has also witnessed an increase, which has led to higher standards of living among consumers, along with increasingly busy lifestyles. This trend has resulted in the growing consumption of processed and packaged foods, which has impacted the plastic cups market positively.

The growing proliferation of coffee houses, restaurants, fast-food chains, and ice-cream parlours across developed and emerging nations have also had a positive impact on the market. The rising consumption of ready-to-drink packaged beverages and packaged dairy products like yoghurts are also acting as catalysts for the market growth. The introduction of attractive designs and packaging shapes are further providing a positive impact on the industry growth. In the coming years, customisable designs and packaging solutions are expected to drive the market growth. The growing R&D activities by the manufacturers and the introduction of heat sensitive labels are expected to be major trends guiding the growth of the plastic cups market. With governments across the globe incentivizing recycling to reduce the carbon footprint, manufacturers are also looking to produce plastic cups out of recyclable materials and encouraging the recycling of their existing cups.

However, the growth of the industry is expected to be constrained by factors such as a complete ban on plastic across various countries and a shift away from non-recyclable materials. In the short term, the industry is also likely to be impacted adversely by the global lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has led to restrictions on large gatherings and temporary closures of cafes and restaurants.
