Vending Cups Market Will be Valued at US$ 2,611 Mn by 2028

Pegged at the global revenue of more than US$ 1.8 billion during the same period, revenues in the global vending cups market are a resultant of the increased ‘on-the-go’ consumption culture

A recent analysis by Future Market Insights (FMI) on the global sales of vending cups forecasts a modest growth through 2019. However, the demand for vending cups is anticipated to remain rather sluggish through the 2028, considering recyclability questions associated with vending cups.

  • The global vending cups market is expected to expand at moderate annual growth rate of 3.9 percent in 2019, with the CAGR touching an all-time low in 2028, touching the valuation of approximately US$ 2.6 Billion through the forecast timeline.
  • In terms of value, FMI also forecast a dip in the Year-on-Year growth rate as more and more nations implement stringent laws circling ‘single-use plastic’ policy.

“Plastic consumption has remained a critical issue, impacting the overall food chain and public health. However, several global initiatives are being taken by Governments- both in emerging and developed markets to reduce or completely eliminate the sales and consumption of single-use plastics—with a key focus on plastic cups, bags, and straws, amongst other commodities. Vancouver, for instance, in its effort to ban all solid waste by 2040, has banned plastic straws. The nation has also moved a motion—to be in effect from June, 2019—to ban the distribution of takeout containers and foam cups.

India, in 2017, took a major step towards banning all forms of single-use plastic. European Union, too, through its new plans, is expected to reduce the consumption of single-use plastics and microplastics by 2030. FMI anticipates that growing public consciousness of sustainability and waste issues will remain a critical factor, suppressing the demand for vending cups. Such developments in the market could strike a significant blow to market growth, considering plastic still accounts for over 27% of the global vending cups market, by material”, explains a senior research analyst at the company.
