This study analyzes the US foodservice disposables industry. It presents historical demand data for 2002, 2007, and 2012, and forecasts for 2017 and 2022 by product (e.g., containers, lids and domes, wraps, bags, cups, dinnerware, utensils, napkins, moist towelettes) and market (e.g., eating and drinking places, retail and vending machines, institutional, lodging and hospitality, sports and recreation). The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share, and profiles industry players.

Improving economy to drive US demand through 2017

US demand for foodservice disposables is expected to approach $20 billion in 2017. Growth will be driven by accelerated foodservice revenue increases relative to the performance of the recessionimpacted 2007-2012 period, reflecting an improved outlook for consumer spending in tandem with continuing economic expansion, which will drive increased frequency of restaurant visits.

Packaging products to grow fastest

Packaging products will achieve the fastest gains through 2017, driven by above average revenue increases in the limited service segment, which accounts for over half of restaurant revenues but generates a much higher share of foodservice disposables demand. Expanding menu options in limited service restaurants, longer hours to include breakfast and snacking beyond traditional meal times, and ongoing development of new restaurant concepts will also bode well for related packaging. The popularity of takeout food from full service restaurants and greater prepared food options from retail stores will also fuel packaging demand. Packaging that maintains freshness and enhances the visual appeal of prepared foods will be a consideration for packaging demand in the retail market.

Serviceware gains will lag the overall average as a result of an expected moderation in material prices following spikes in recent years, along with rising competition from Asian imports in some segments. Nonetheless, prospects will be supported by a favorable outlook for limited service restaurant and retail establishment foodservice revenue growth, along with steady demand in institutional and other markets. Also supporting gains will be the increased focus on gourmet coffee and specialty cold drinks by quick service restaurants and convenience stores, and increased catering activity by restaurants.

Robust advances are anticipated for degradable packaging and serviceware from a relatively small base, the result of heightened prominence of environmental issues, efforts by foodservice establishments to differentiate themselves, and heightened local bans on foamed polystyrene disposables.

Eating & drinking places to remain dominant market

Eating and drinking places, which held two-thirds of foodservice disposables demand in 2012, are by far the largest market for foodservice disposables. While growth in this market will be fueled by a continuing recovery in the broader economy as well as healthy prospects for limited service restaurants and changes in the mix of menu items, the retail and vending market will represent the fastest growing disposables market through 2017. Gains will be driven by the growing focus on prepared foods in supermarkets, warehouse clubs, and convenience stores, as retailers strive to differentiate themselves and regain some share of sales that have been lost to restaurants.

Among restaurant types, fast casual restaurants will record the fastest advances as they continue to gain share from quick service restaurants and casual dining restaurants. Also driving the popularity of fast casual restaurants is their appeal to two important demographics: aging baby boomers and younger baby boomers.

  • Ethiopia Agribusiness Report Q2 2015
    Published: 30-Jan-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 81
    BMI View: Production prospects look broadly favourable for the Ethiopian agriculture sector over the medium term. This will largely be due to more investment in the sector, along with higher incomes contributing to consumption growth. We believe the sugar sector has the most potential, as investments in new sugar refineries will make sugar one of the few reliable agricultural exports over the forecast period. We see relatively pedestrian output growth for Ethiopia's coffee sector, but see up......
  • France Agribusiness Report Q2 2015
    Published: 30-Jan-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 106
    BMI View: We forecast a decline in grains growth in 2015/16 in France, as weak wheat prices around the planting season likely led to a decline in plantings. We forecast wheat production to grow over our forecast period, and expect production to reach 40.0mn tonnes by 2018/19. The dairy sector will not be fundamentally affected by the removal of the EU's production quota in early 2015, but will expand out to 2019. Cheese production will grow strongly as international exports will be in strong......
  • Ghana Agribusiness Report Q2 2015
    Published: 30-Jan-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 99
    BMI View: We believe that the Ghanaian cocoa sector will post reasonably strong growth over our forecast period to 2018/19. High cocoa prices will encourage production, while the government has pledged schemes in order to encourage yield growth. Stabilisation of the cedi and the announcement of a higher support price will also aid the sector. The launch of a new government project to revitalise the poultry sector suggests that the challenges facing the segment as it struggles to compete......
  • Indonesia Agribusiness Report Q2 2015
    Published: 30-Jan-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 173
    BMI View: Overall, we hold an optimistic outlook on Indonesia's agriculture sector and see significant growth opportunities in sub-sectors such as livestock, palm oil and cocoa. While we believe the government's goal to reach self-sufficiency in rice by 2015 is attainable, we are less confident about other commodities such as sugar and corn. We also highlight that the country's aim to become the second largest coffee producer in the world by 2015 is unrealistic. Much of our scepticism relate......
  • Kenya Agribusiness Report Q2 2015
    Published: 30-Jan-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 88
    BMI View: The key development in Kenya's agricultural sector over 2015 will be the abolition of the safeguard protecting unlimited amounts of duty-free sugar imports into the country from COMESA countries. As Kenya's sugar industry is uncompetitive relative to its regional neighbours, we believe that this will greatly stunt growth of the country's sugar sector. Over the long term, we believe Kenya's corn sector shows the most potential for growth, owing to regional currency stability which w......
  • Mozambique Food and Drink Report Q2 2015
    Published: 30-Jan-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 53
    BMI View: Following the ceasefire between the opposition party Renamo and the government, private consumption growth will accelerate to 6.5% in 2015 and 2016. Because Mozambique is one of the poorest countries in the world, Mozambicans spend a great proportion of their income on food and drink. Therefore, GDP growth will translate into higher per capita food expenditure. We forecast per capita food consumption (local currency) to grow at a compound annual rate of 12.3% over 2014-2019, encour......
