Cups & Lids

US cup and lid demand will grow 4.3 percent annually through 2010, driven by a favorable outlook for key foodservice markets (e.g., quick service restaurants, coffee shops). Lids will outpace cups based on an increasing percentage of drinking cups using lids, growing demand for higher-value specialty lids and continued gains for single-serving packaging cups.

This study analyzes the $5.5 billion US cup and lid industry. It presents historical demand data (1995, 2000 and 2005) and forecasts to 2010 and 2015 by product (e.g., drinking cups, packaging cups, portion cups, food cups, drinking cup lids, flexible lids); by material, and by market (e.g., foodservice, food packaging, retail).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 43 major players including Solo Cup, Dart Container, Dixie, Berry Plastics, and International Paper.
