Ongoing expansion of the food and beverage sector along with proliferating food delivery businesses showcase lucrative scope for drinkware manufacturers. Drinkware, also known as beverageware, consists of a wide variety of products used to store water, coffee, alcohol, and other non-alcoholic beverages. A substantial rise in the number of restaurants, food outlets, online food delivery platforms, and e-commerce sites has accelerated the need for drinkware products. Increasing demand for glassware with modern designs for luxury dining will positively influence the drinkware industry statistics.

Growing health concerns over lead poisoning and stringent regulations banning the use of lead paint could hamper industry growth. Lead and cadmium are commonly used in ceramics and glazed pottery to add luster and bright colors to cups and mugs. This increases the risk of consumption of the two heavy metals while consuming beverages from these cups. Cup and glass makers typically add lead or cadmium to low-quality glass products for better manufacturing output. However, studies have shown that prolonged consumption of beverages from enameled drinkware can lead to hazardous and toxic impacts on health.

It is significantly popular among young and old adults as it helps improve energy levels, burn fat, and boost physical performance. Growing consumption of beverages with cultural significance such as tea and hot chocolate will boost demand for mugs and cups.

Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on drinkware market trends

The COVID-19 pandemic had a slightly positive impact on the drinkware industry. The pandemic devastated a broad spectrum of businesses, particularly the food and beverage sector. Hotels, restaurants, and food carts quickly adopted home delivery systems to cope up with the loss incurred due to the shutdown of offline businesses.

A dramatic rise in online food deliveries fueled the use of cups, tumblers, and other disposable drinkware. Several countries reported an enormous surge in the use of plastic during the pandemic. Plastic coffee cups and plastic shopping bags were extensively used in home deliveries, ensuring adherence to social distancing norms. Furthermore, several studies showed that plastic eliminated the risk of virus transmission, otherwise seen in reusable packaging.
