Molded Pulp

This study analyzes the US market for egg cartons by material (expanded polystyrene foam, molded pulp, rigid plastic). Historical data (2009, 2014, and 2019) and forecasts for 2024 are presented for egg cartons in current US dollars (including inflation) and in units.

Demand in units is also segmented by carton size (6-, 12-, 18-, and 24-count and over).

The terms “molded pulp” and “molded fiber” are used interchangeably.

Egg trays/flats used by food processors and the foodservice industry are excluded from this report.
