Cups & Lids

As Quoted In Packaging Digest

US demand for cups and lids will increase 4.4 percent per year through 2014, driven by expanding foodservice revenues and favorable prospects for food packaging cups. Value gains will be bolstered by increasing demand for environmentally friendly cups, such as cups made from higher-value biodegradable resins or recycled content.

This study analyzes the $6.6 billion US cups and lids industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1999, 2004 and 2009, and forecasts for 2014 and 2019 by product (e.g., drinking cups, packaging cups, food cups, portion cups, drinking cup lids, flexible lids, plastic lids) and market (e.g., foodservice, food and beverage packaging, retail).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 37 industry players, including Solo Cup, Dart Container and Georgia-Pacific.
