DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 9, 2023--

The “Biodegradable Cups Market By Type, By Application, By Capacity: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2021-2031” report has been added to’s offering.

The global biodegradable cups market was valued at $458.1 million in 2021, and is projected to reach $1,046.11 million by 2031, registering a CAGR of 8.5% from 2022 to 2031.

Biodegradable cups are made of compostable bioplastic, based on vegetable starch, called PLA. The eco-friendly disposable cups are strong, flexible, and shatter-proof. Matching lids, plastic-free straws, and inserts are also available in the market.

The global biodegradable cups market is in the introductory phase of 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 cups and strict regulatory outlook against the use of conventional plastic products.


Industry trends are shifting toward biobased products to reduce dependence on conventional plastics cups. Biodegradable plastics degrade easily unlike fossil fuel based plastic products, which may take more than 500 years to degrade completely. Moreover, most of the manufacturers in industries such as packaging, textile and agriculture are shifting toward biobased plastic due to stringent regulations from the government. Such factors are majorly impacting the growth of the global biodegradable cups market.

On the other hand, the growth of the market is restrained by high cost of biodegradable cups over its conventional counterparts. For instance, polylactic acid based bioplastics cups are at least eight times as expensive as the petroleum-based plastics. However, new products such as Fruitplast, a bioplastic cups made from the skins of tropical fruits at a lower price, are expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities in upcoming times.
