Exploring the COVID-19 Impact: Biodegradable Tableware See Plummeting Sales Due to Month-long Closure of Foodservice Sector – Future Market Insights

Mass closure of foodservice facilities and shutdown of manufacturing and supply chain operations are causing a significant downturn in the revenue flow of market.

DUBAI, UAE / ACCESSWIRE / May 7, 2020 / As the battle to contain coronavirus ramps up, the war against plastic is on hold, causing uncertainties around biodegradable tableware market. Prior to the pandemic, an increasing number of governments imposed bans on single-use plastic based disposable cutlery or tableware in an effort cut down on waste and environmental impact. The result has potentially influenced the sales of biodegradable tableware which will total US$ 3 Bn by 2021, as projected by a new study of Future Market Insights (FMI).

However, shuttering of commercial sectors, ranging from high-end to quick service restaurants, during COVID-19 lockdowns is causing a steep decline in demand for biodegradable tableware. With end-use companies doubling down on social issues over environmental in the time of crisis, the market will continue to face significant challenges in near term.

“As recycling programs and manufacturing of biodegradable products in particular are being suspended, the pandemic is taking a massive toll on the biodegradable tableware market. Market players will need to up their product awareness campaigns to attract and retain their customers in the near future,” says the FMI analyst.

COVID-19 Impact on Biodegradable Tableware Market

With social distancing requirements, extended lockdowns, and movement restrictions, the Covid-19 pandemic has been affecting the packaging industry in general and the biodegradable tableware market in particular, leaving businesses to make critical decisions on how to progress in the near- and long-term. While supermarkets can’t keep their shelves stocked and restaurants, bars, and food outlets are struggling with month-long closures, there are signs that consumers are rethinking their preference for household use tableware.

The impact of these factors has been significantly evident in the biodegradable tableware market. Due to reduced production and supply chain operations and significant economic downturn during the pandemic, foodservice operators are likely to face many obstacles to navigate when it comes to gaining access to the biodegradable tableware and aligning with their budget plans post crisis.
