World Cups & Lids

The foodservice market is growing rapidly worldwide as Western-style fast food restaurants become more prevalent and promote the more widespread use of disposable cups and lids.

World demand to rise 5.2% annually through 2019

Global demand for cups and lids is projected to increase 5.2 percent per year to $30.2 billion in 2019. Demand is determined primarily by the size of the quick service restaurant (QSR) market and the production of packaged processed foods. As a result, the US has historically held a significant share of the global total. However, going forward, the Asia/Pacific region will offer one of the fastest rates of growth due to continued gains in developing markets such as China and India. Central and South America and the Africa/Mideast region will also post above average growth, while a declining population will hold down gains in Eastern Europe. Meanwhile, North America and Western Europe will register more modest, though not insubstantial, advances.

Foodservice market to drive gains worldwide

The foodservice market, especially the QSR segment, is growing rapidly worldwide, especially in developing countries. Historically, most developing nations have not been significant markets for disposable cups and lids. However, as Western-style fast food restaurants become more prevalent, use of disposables will also become more widespread. While QSR outlets continue to proliferate nearly everywhere in the world, demand for disposable cups and lids will not advance commensurately in all locations. While disposables are generally used in the vast majority of QSR establishments in the US, elsewhere in the world they have been typically reserved for takeout/takeaway patrons. Nevertheless, disposables usage for patrons dining onsite is becoming more common, although at present only a few countries (such as Australia and Canada) approach the usage rates seen in the US. The growth of coffee shop chains will similarly boost demand as they rely heavily on disposable cups and lids. But like the QSR segment, there are regional variations in the usage of disposables. In some countries, coffee and tea are consumed at a more relaxed pace and generally onsite from reusable serviceware such as ceramic cups.

Food processing is faster segment in large US market

In the US, foodservice is the largest market for cups and lids, but in many locations, food processing is the principal outlet. Key food packaging uses for cups and lids include single-serve microwaveable entrees, a variety of dairy products, soup and noodle dishes, cereal, and baby foods. Although single-serve food cups will remain most common in the US, they are beginning to appear more frequently in other countries as well. Outside the US market, the largest applications for cups and lids in food processing will remain instant noodles (particularly in Asia) and yogurt (particularly in Europe).
