Global Market Study on Foodservice Disposables: Rapid Growth Linked To Increasing Traction of Online and Home Delivery Food Services

This report covers the foodservice disposables market performance in terms of both value and volume over the forecast period (2015-2021). It also provides in-depth insights about key demand-and supply-side drivers as well as restraints and challenges in the market.

On the basis of raw material, the market is segmented as follows:

  • Paper & paperboard

  • Aluminum

Plastics segment dominates the market and is projected to maintain its dominance through 2021. A major factor for the popularity of plastics is its ability to hold high as well as low-temperature food and beverages without hampering food quality. Since most disposables are used for on-the-go service or home delivery, it is important for the material to be strong enough to hold food for a significant amount of time as well as be lightweight for ease of transportation. Besides plastics, paper & paperboard disposables are becoming increasingly popular as they can be easily recycled.
