Cups & Lids

As Quoted In Plastics & Rubber Weekly

US demand for cups and lids will advance 4.3 percent annually through 2012. Drinking cups will remain the dominant cup type while packaging cups will grow the fastest. Growth in lids will outpace cups as more drinking cups use lids, especially higher-value specialty lids. Foodservice will remain the dominant market while food packaging will grow more rapidly.

This study analyzes the $6.3 billion US cup and lid industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1997, 2002 and 2007, and forecasts for 2012 and 2017 by product (e.g., drinking cups, packaging cups, food cups, drinking cup lids, flexible lids), material and market.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 41 industry participants, including Solo Cup, Dart Container and Georgia-Pacific.
