Global demand for single-use foodservice products is expected to increase 3.8% per year to $69.3 billion in 2024. Opportunities exist in:

  • the Asia/Pacific region, where there is particularly fast growth in the quick-service and fast casual restaurant sectors
  • surging demand for carryout and delivery orders, boosted by expanding availability of delivery services – usually third-party services via mobile apps – even from full-service establishments primarily known for dine-in service
  • high-value specialty products, particularly sustainability oriented items (e.g., strawless drink lids, items made with compostable materials) and featuring elements that improve the delivered food experience

COVID-19 Will Give a Significant Short-Term Boost to Foodservice Disposables Demand

As the coronavirus pandemic caused restaurants around the world to cease or drastically reduce dine-in operations – either voluntarily or due to government mandates – many relied solely on delivery and carryout orders. This has contributed to higher rates of demand for disposables than is typically seen, as has greater adoption of single-use products for in-room dining services as restaurants begin to reopen. Going forward, two trends could continue post-pandemic:

  • Some restaurants that pivoted to delivery or carryout may continue to rely more heavily on this revenue stream than they did previously.
  • The ongoing shift from single-use plastics to reusable products will slow as users are reminded of the hygiene benefits of disposables.

Sustainability Will Be a Key Factor Influencing Product Mix

Although the pandemic has temporarily slowed the shift to products perceived to be more sustainable, the environmental impact of foodservice disposables – including the use of resources to produce them and the challenges associated with their disposal – remains under scrutiny. Dozens of countries have introduced regulations limiting or banning the use of certain products, particularly single-use plastics. While some foodservice operators have turned to nondisposable serviceware and other reusables when possible, some single-use products – like packaging – cannot be eliminated. Single-use products made from sustainable materials – including paper, fiber, and recycled aluminum – are surging in demand, while sales of materials with greater perceived environmental cost (such as foamed plastic) are declining.

A Surge in Carryout & Delivery Orders Will Support Demand for Foodservice Disposables

The introduction and rising popularity of delivery apps – such as DoorDash in the US, Meituan Dianping in China, or Deliveroo in the UK – has contributed to a substantial surge in the number of delivery orders being fulfilled by restaurants of all types. Single-use packaging and other products are essential to fulfill these orders, and rising delivery rates are creating new opportunities in market sectors – such as the full-service restaurant industry – that previously used relatively few disposables. As an increasing number of restaurants open “ghost kitchens” – i.e., separate facilities that expand kitchen capacity to enable fulfillment of more delivery orders without slowing dine-in services – demand for single-use products in carryout and delivery applications will continue to rise.
