Global Paper Cups and Containers Market 2017-2021

Global Paper Cups and Containers Market 2017-2021

About Paper Cups and Containers

Paper cups are usually coated with PE, which provides stability and heat resistance. However, these PE-coated paper cups are hard to recycle and do not decompose easily, which results in large amounts of paper cups piling up in landfills. Disposable containers are primarily made of paperboard, which is a little thicker than paper. These containers are usually made of virgin wood pulp, recycled paper stock, or other fibers. Paperboard is classified into chipboard, fiberboard, solid board, and white board. This material is used for making takeaway containers, boxes, cartons, and plates. The vendors in the global paper cups and containers market offer new packaging solutions that can prevent the contamination of the packaged foods and beverages. To ensure proper recyclability, manufacturers are switching to PLA-coated paper cups.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global paper cups and containers market to grow at a CAGR of 2.54% during the period 2017-2021.
