Dublin, April 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Disposable Cups Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report 2021 - 2028" report has been added to's offering.

The global disposable cups market size is expected to reach USD 20.76 billion by 2028 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 7.2%

The hectic lifestyle and long working hours are known to contribute to the demand for disposable utensils to save the time of the consumers. Availability of new and improved products for takeaway services is also anticipated to positively influence the market growth. The easy availability of customized cups with attractive colors, prints, and messages is driving the product demand in household parties and other corporate events.

The disposable cups come in various designs and shapes and can be a valuable addition to business. In addition, they offer the opportunity for branding, helping to spread the awareness of the business. The availability of an extensive product range in all price segments in supermarkets, hypermarkets, departmental stores, and other offline sales outlets is foreseen to make them more accessible to the common public. Furthermore, the easiest way to purchase disposable cups is online.

Sales of disposable cups through online channels are foreseen to witness traction on account of the availability of products, such as a printed or plain white cup, from several players, along with convenient delivery options. Additionally, most of the websites have information about size, price, and the substances that are used to manufacture the cup. This way consumers can make an informed decision and also be sure that the product is made of natural substances and hence recyclable.

Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, several brick-and-mortar stores have taken a major hit owing to the need for social distancing in most infected countries, however, e-commerce has emerged as the go-to distribution channel for supplies since the outbreak.

Consumers' love for hot beverages, such as coffee, and other takeaway foods support an enormous consumption of disposable cups across the globe. However, disposable cups made of plastic or other materials are quite harmful to our planet and also imply serious problems. Sometimes, regular paper cups come with a plastic lid, which needs to be disposed of separately, and they harbor a plastic lining, which impairs their recycling. Thus, manufacturers operating in the market are focusing on introducing a plastic-free, disposable takeaway cup that breaks down completely in soil and has a unique folding top to prevent spills.

By product, paper disposable cups are foreseen to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period. The growing consumer concerns over the deteriorating environment and rising intolerance toward the use of plastic products, such as cups, are fueling the demand for paper cups. In addition, strict government reforms regarding the usage of single-use plastic disposables are driving consumers to opt for paper cups instead.

The European region is a significant shareholder in the market and is foreseen to witness noteworthy growth over the forecast period. The growing number of restaurants and coffee shops in countries, such as France, Germany, the U.K., and Italy, is expected to drive the demand for disposable cups in the coming years.

The trend of "Food Away From Home" is rising owing to more people opting for convenient meal solutions while working away from home. Most quick-service vendors use convenient packaging formats, such as disposable plates, cups, and bowls, which are expected to drive the market over the forecast period.
