Press Release from Future Market Insights

The global molded fiber bowls market is projected to reach a valuation of US$ 196.9 Mn in 2022, with sales growing at a 4.2% CAGR over the forecast period.

Molded fiber bowls have gained traction in the foodservice sector as a handy, cost-effective and biodegradable packaging solution. Apart from functional characteristics such as low prices and cleanliness, molded fiber bowls offer easy stackability and grab-and-go features.

Over the last decade, factors such as increased customer preference for home delivery of ready-to-eat food via online food service platforms have significantly pushed the molded fiber bowls market. Sales are expected to be driven by large multi-national quick-service restaurants (QSR) across various countries, as well as increasing penetration of QSRs in emerging economies.

Furthermore, most QSRs limit their expenditures to cleaning and reserving used containers. As a result, the usage of foodservice disposable containers such as molded fiber bowls, cups, plates, cutlery, and other items allows food-chain operators to reduce labour costs and focus on enhancing customer service and quality.

Surging demand for sustainable packaging solutions across the globe is compelling manufacturers to expand their production facilities and to install technologically advanced manufacturing equipment.

For instance, in June 2021, Jefferson Enterprise Energy and Zume announced a joint venture for creating one of the world’s first entirely renewable energy-powered manufacturing facilities that will produce compostable molded fiber products such as bowls, clamshells, etc. Through this partnership, the companies are planning to support increasing demand for the molded fiber products in North America.

Similarly, in Asia Parason Machinery partnered with Zume Inc. installed a machine line for compostable and eco-friendly tableware manufacturing technology to boost molded fiber product line.

“Stringent regulations regarding plastic disposal and greenhouse gas emissions, along with functional characteristics offered by molded fiber bowls are some of the key factors expected to boost the market in the forthcoming years,” says an FMI analyst.
