The term disposable cups came into limelight in early 1900s when health hazards related to usage of common cups became evident. This developed the need for developing disposable cups and in the process, a new market was created. The growing demand for snacks and related products in place of traditional meals has led to an increase in demand for disposable cups. The disposable paper cups are lined with plastic or wax to prevent them from becoming soggy and also to prevent leakage. Paper cups are segmented into hot and cold cups. Cold cups have a coating of wax on both sides so that it doesn’t get wet due to absorption of liquid. The hot cups, on the other hand, are specifically made to withstand heat and therefore, are only coated on one side.
There are several consumer trends which have accelerated the growth of the disposable cups market — a rise in the number of non-traditional families that prefer having their meals outside home, urbanization, the growing middle-class, and the coffee-on-the-go trend are some such factors. Moreover, there are several technology and product-based trends — less plastic and more paper-based packaging, sustainability and convenience — which are shaping the disposable cups market. However, the paper cups industry will benefit most from the restrictions imposed on polystyrene foam disposables, environmental concerns about foam cups, and also from the switch made by big food chains from foam to paper cups.
