The global foodservice disposables market is growing at a rapid pace due to the increasing demand for services such as home delivery, sophisticated packaging, and innovations in food packaging, etc.

Let’s look at the factors that are enabling the growth of foodservice disposables market.

Emergence of Food Delivery Services: There was a time when home delivery of food was an experiment that carried out to check if people really preferred getting their food delivered at their doorsteps, it clicked and turned out to be a massive hit.

Consumers have adopted food delivery services so well that every food joint is expected to provide food to the consumer’s doorsteps via various channels. Credits to smartphone technology and the emergence of food delivery services such as Uber Eats, Just Eat, Delivery Hero, etc. Hence, advances in mobile technology and the penetration of high-speed internet are major factors that are pushing the market growth of foodservice disposables, including disposable food containers, clamshells, cups, and even straws.

Convenience Maximalism and Changing Food Habits: The recent change, which has been observed in the food and beverage industry, is the prevalence of quick service restaurants, food trucks, and other mobile food joints. They are potent enough to compete with dine-in restaurants in terms of food quality, hygiene, and services.

As individual lifestyle is turning busier, with less time and more workload, people do not have sufficient time to cook for themselves. Hence, the trend of ordering food from outside is gaining momentum; with consumer prefer trying new food cuisines, thereby changing their food habits. Meal delivery platforms have become a symbol of maximum convenience, especially in tier 1 and tier 2 cities which in turn enables growth of disposable food containers and other disposable packaging products. Hence, the growth in food delivery services is directly proportional to the rise of foodservice disposables market.

Innovative Products with Improved Composability: Nowadays, the increasing demand and usage of organic foodservice disposables is evolving. The use of plant-based plastic made of PLA and CPLA can help to reduce land filling.

While recycling of plastic waste, which can be re-used for food packaging, is difficult and not economically viable, recycled plastic packaging cannot be reused for food packaging, according to FDA regulations.

However, several vendors are expected to use recycled and reusable food packaging materials by 2025, though it needs sophisticated machinery and heavy investments.

Societies are witnessing growing awareness toward individual health and the environment, hence opting for biodegradable disposable food containers, cutlery, and other products.  A renewed focus on using bio-based raw materials, which have low effect on the environment, is expected to increase in the regions.
