Biodegradable Cups Market Research, 2031

The global biodegradable cups market size was valued at $458.1 million in 2021, and is projected to reach $1.1 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 8.5% from 2022 to 2031. Biodegradable substances are the materials that are able to decay naturally by the action of microorganisms. The biodegradable cups are made of the PLA coating, sugarcane starch, wheat straws, corn, and paper that can effectively disposed and recycled. The PLA coating is also known as poly-lactic acid that is derived from renewable and biodegradable materials. The manufacturers are improving the value added features of the biodegradable cups such as heat resistance, heat sealing, and water based elements that pose no risk for environment. The biodegradable cups are categorized into two types—biodegradable paper cups and biodegradable plastic cups.

The global biodegradable cups market is in the introductory phase of the industry life cycle and is expected to explore new growth opportunities during the coming years. Some of the basic factors driving the growth of the market include governmental initiatives to eliminate single use plastic and strict regulatory outlook against the use of conventional plastic products for manufacturing of cups.

Industry trends are shifting toward biobased products to reduce dependence on conventional plastics for cups. Moreover, most of the manufacturers in industries such as packaging, textile and agriculture are shifting toward biobased plastic for manufacturing cups due to stringent regulations from the government. Such factors are largely impacting the biodegradable cups market growth. On the other hand, the growth of the market is negatively impacted by high cost of biodegradable cups over its conventional counterparts.

Biodegradable Cups Market by Type

During the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, construction, manufacturing, hotel, and tourism industries were majorly affected. Manufacturing activities were halted or restricted. This led to decline in manufacturing of various equipment used for biodegradable cups as well as their demand in the market, thereby restraining the growth of the biodegradable cups market.

Biodegradable Cups Market by Application

Conversely, industries are gradually resuming their regular manufacturing and services. This is expected to lead to re-initiation of biodegradable cups companies at their full-scale capacities, that helped the biodegradable cups market share to recover by end of 2021.

Analyst Review

Biodegradable cups are considered as the major innovation from renewable material as the world is discovering alternatives to single use plastic products. It is being adopted as a perfect substitute to single use plastic as this plastic decomposes after a definite period of time by causing no harm to environment.

Increase in number of manufacturers, favorable government policies for the adoption of sustainable and biodegradable products, and rise in availability of renewable feedstock boost the growth of the biodegradable plastic market. Rise in consumer acceptance due to various awareness and education programs regarding biobased products is providing a new perspective to eliminate usage of conventional plastic. However, higher price of biobased plastic as compared to traditional plastic coupled with low performance standards hamper the market growth.

At present, use of biodegradable cups in packaging is the highest and is projected to remain the same through 2026 on account of its favorable properties. On the other hand, relative inferior performance of biodegradable plastic especially PLA plastics against traditional petroleum-based plastics is expected to be the key concern. The production of bioplastics is highest in Asia-Pacific owing to the huge availability of renewable feedstock. Despite being biodegradable, one of the key advantages is its properties are similar to the conventional plastic, which makes biodegradable plastic for manufacturing of cups is a perfect substitute to conventional plastic.
