The Europe paper cups market size witnessed significant growth and is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 3.1% during the forecast period (2023-2031)
Paper cups are frequently used to serve food and drinks such as coffee, tea, soft drinks, soups, instant noodles, sweet corn, etc. Their excellent durability and liquid resistance can be credited to their appeal. Paper cups also make it easy to drink on the go without worrying about cleaning, saving water and time. They also have the benefits of being biodegradable, user-friendly, lightweight, hygienic, recyclable, and non-toxic. Currently, Europe is the third-largest market for paper cups.
The demand for takeaway beverages is very strong in cities with hectic lifestyles and individuals often on the go, including London, Amsterdam, and Berlin. To meet this need, coffee shops and cafes offer hot and cold beverages in paper cups. Pret A Manger, a well-known coffee and food chain in Europe, provides a variety of beverages in paper cups so that clients can enjoy their drinks while traveling or strolling through the city. This on-the-go mentality has fostered the desire for paper cups as a practical and transportable packaging choice.
Reusable alternatives are hampering Europe’s paper cup sector. Travel mugs and thermos flasks are becoming more popular as consumers become more environmentally concerned. In certain European countries, reusable mugs compete with paper cups. As a sustainable alternative to paper cups, Europe has embraced KeepCup. KeepCup features a spill-proof cover and thermal insulation on a reusable glass or BPA-free plastic cup. Environmentally concerned consumers who prefer reusable cups over disposable paper cups have adopted this product. Reusable cup choices have reduced single-use paper cup demand in some European countries.
Europe has seen a rise in plastic waste reduction and sustainable alternatives. The Australian “Plastic-Free July” campaign has spread globally, especially to Europe. For July, this campaign encourages people and companies to eliminate single-use plastics, particularly plastic cups. In July and beyond, many European cafes, restaurants, and event organizers offered paper instead of plastic cups as part of this initiative.

During the projection period, Europe is expected to rise quickly as packaging producers turn their attention, among other things, to bio-based packaging. The increased need for flexible packaging solutions across various end-user sectors also assists in the regional market’s growth. The market is expanding due to the popularity of outdoor activities and the ease of the product’s single-use design. Additionally, the consumption rate will likely rise as more families in this region take family vacations. For instance, statistics from the American Automobile Association suggest that approximately 100 million Americans took family vacations in the United States at some point in 2019.
The United Kingdom is anticipated to create a potential for incremental growth worth USD 20 million over the projected period. Since coffee is one of the most consumed beverages in the country, paper cup sales are expected to increase as coffee consumption does. The British Coffee Association reported that 98 million cups of coffee were consumed daily in the UK in 2021, 76% being the standard cup. Coffee is often sold in small amounts or through vending machines. Therefore, consumption will eventually impact the global paper cup market. Paper cups must be used to serve and drink coffee. The consumption of coffee will likely increase as a result of increased sales in the UK.
