US Cups & Lids Industry Worth $10 Billion by 2018 Says a New Research Report at

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) July 05, 2014

US cup & lid demand to reach $ 10 billion in 2018

US demand for cups and lids is projected to reach $ 10.0 billion in 2018, with growth driven by above average gains for food packaging cups and an improved outlook for foodservice revenue growth relative to the 2008-2013 period. In particular, cup and lid demand will be propelled by the important role of beverages in restaurants and stores as revenue generators, along with the growing focus on specialty beverages among foodservice operators as a means of offsetting declining consumption of carbonated soft drinks.

Packaging cups to be fastest growing products

While drinking cups will continue to dominate, the fastest gains are anticipated in the packaging cup segment due to favorable consumption trends in a number of applications, along with advantages of convenience, portability, and portion control. The growing pattern of snacking in place of traditional meals and a widening definition of snack foods will be advantageous for single portion packaging formats such as cups.

Among drinking cup materials, paper cups will experience the fastest growth, reflecting a shift in the competitive landscape stemming from environmental concerns about foam cups, growing restrictions on polystyrene foam disposables, increasing pressure from environmental groups, and switches from foam to paper cups by McDonalds and other high volume foodservice providers. Recent and/or planned major expansions in paper cup capacity are being undertaken by key suppliers to meet the expected upswing in US foodservice paper cup demand. In addition, plastic cups will capture some share of hot drink applications as a result of the commercialization of recyclable insulated plastic cups.

Lid demand to outpace cups

Lid demand growth will outpace that of cups, fueled by expanding carryout food and beverage sales from restaurants and retail stores, an increasing percentage of drinking cups utilizing lids, heightened demand for costlier specialty lids, and healthy increases for single serving packaging cups, all of which have some type of lid or flexible lidding. Growth in the level of drinking cups with lids will reflect an increasing volume of beverages purchased for offsite consumption, consumer tendencies to drink beverages on the go (e.g., in cars), and a growing focus on coffee in quick service restaurants, coffee and snack shops, and convenience stores.

Food service to remain dominant market

The foodservice market, which represented 67 percent of demand in 2013, will remain by far the largest cup and lid market. Among trends driving growth for cups and lids are the increased focus on specialty beverage offerings in quick service and other restaurants, the growing presence of innovative fountain drink dispensers that enable custom flavor combinations, and the popularity of menu items that use cups, such as ice cream, frozen yogurt, oatmeal, and fruit cups.

Solid gains in the food and beverage packaging market will be driven by favorable consumption trends for various products commonly packaged in cups, such as yogurt, and coffee and tea for single cup brewing systems. In addition, the growing prominence of snacks as alternatives to meals and rising interest in healthy foods and snack options will support heightened demand in a variety of applications that can be packaged in a small sized format such as a cup.

Increasing Focus on Efficient Power Distribution Drives the Global Market for Fuses and Circuit Breakers, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, California (PRWEB) February 06, 2013

Follow us on LinkedIn As an important part of the power protection devices industry, fuses and circuit breakers assume critical importance in protecting the electrical and electronic equipment from unexpected power fluctuations resulting from overvoltages, overload, ground faults and short circuits. Increasing focus on efficient power transmission and distribution is the principal factor propelling demand for fuses and circuit breakers worldwide. Additionally, the market, over the past decade has been riding high on the burgeoning adoption of electronic and electric equipment all of which warrant the use of protection devices such as fuses and circuit breakers. Another key factor projected to fuel growth in the market is the growing demand from emerging economies, which are currently in the forefront of establishing new energy infrastructure.

In this regard, as the slowdown of the BRIC countries highlights the popping of the BRIC bubble, CIVETS countries are poised to emerge as the next cluster of developing markets to turbo-charge future growth in the market. The encouraging performance of CIVETS in the first half of 2012, which largely outpaced economic performance in BRICs, is further infusing optimistic hope on the regions future potential. Countries in this region for instance, require huge amounts of energy to power the rapid industrialization underway and environmental regulations introduced or about to be implemented will influence the need for more efficient power distribution and transmission equipment. Rapid expansion in commercial building and residential units in these countries is also creating new opportunities in this space.

Demand stands threatened by the still unresolved threat of sequestration cuts in the United States, which flaunts the potential to impact all end-user industries ranging from energy/utilities, automobiles, industrial machinery to construction and electronic equipment. The sequestration cuts can reduce the government budgets for energy programs and infrastructure, leading to possible rejection of energy policy proposals. Also, increased taxes can reduce corporate CAPEX spending in industrial machinery and consumer spending on consumer durables like automobiles. In Europe, the ongoing debt crisis is already impacting demand. The weak residential and non-residential construction industry in Europe, which has shrunk by over 30% and 18% respectively from the peak witnessed in the year 2006, is impacting demand for fuses and circuit breakers used in household circuits.

Reduced political focus of cash strapped European governments on renewable energy will also indirectly impact demand for circuit breakers for high voltage direct current (HVDC) used in protecting the transmission system. Mirroring reduced commitment for renewables is the lack of commitment displayed by European countries like France, Italy, and Spain for the Desertec project founded in the year 2009. Reduced willingness of European countries to construct these power stations halves the future market potential of circuit breakers in the energy sector. Although, grid integration (i.e. pan-European grid) and energy infrastructure reforms represent key to Europes energy sustainability in the future, the immediate financial challenges will continue to affect Europes ability to Think Big in balancing the fluctuating stability of its renewables.

Additionally, the cooling down of Chinas GDP growth is impacting demand for fuses and circuit breakers in industrial machinery. The growing clout of the Chinese manufacturing industry can be put into sharp relief by the fact that the country currently accounts for over 22% of the worlds economic output. Industrial output in the country is the second largest in the world and accounts for over 49% of the countrys GDP, illustrating the countrys industrial prowess. With its economic might resting on export-oriented manufacturing and industrialization, the slowdown in exports to United States and Europe is hurting the countrys manufacturing sector. There also exist fears that in the long-term the Chinese manufacturing growth will bottom out as a result of the imminent bursting of its manufacturing bubble as a result of rising labor costs and growing production time lags and planned tightening of the countrys foreign investment policy.

As stated by the new market research report, the US accounts for a major share of the global Fuses and Circuit Breakers market. Asia-Pacific represents the fastest growing regional market, largely backed by sustained demand from key end-use industries in burgeoning developing economies. By product, Circuit Breakers represent the largest as well as the fastest growing segment. Revenues from the segment are projected to wax at a CAGR of 6.6% over the analysis period.

Major players in the global marketplace include ABB Limited, Alstom S.A, Automation Systems Interconnect, AVX Corporation, Bel Fuse Inc., Bentek Inc., Bourns, Inc., Carling Technologies, Inc., EPCOS AG, Eaton Corporation, E-T-A Elektrotechnische Apparate GmbH, Fuji Electric FA Components & Systems Co., Ltd., General Electric Company, Hitachi Ltd., Legrand S.A, Littelfuse, Inc., Mersen SA, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, Schneider Electric SA,SCHURTER AG, Sensata Technologies Inc., Siemens AG, TE Connectivity Ltd., and Vicor Corporation, among others.

The research report titled Fuses and Circuit Breakers: A Global Strategic Business Report announced by Global Industry Analysts, Inc., provides a comprehensive review of market trends, issues, drivers, company profiles, mergers, acquisitions and other strategic industry activities. The report provides market estimates and projections (US$ ) for major geographic markets including the US, Canada, Japan, Europe, AsiaPacific (excluding Japan), Middle East and Latin America. Key segments analyzed include Fuses, and Circuit Breakers.

Product features such as compatibility with environment, mildness, safety and multidimensional application are the decisive factors.

Sanitation and Janitorial Cleaners are positioned globally as the leading category within the industrial and institutional cleaning products market. These cleaners are primarily used for housekeeping purposes in various industries and institutions. Growing need to maintain clean and hygienic surroundings amplified the demand for disinfectants, sanitizers and other household and industrial and institutional cleaners. Hydrocarbon solvent-based and chlorinated cleaners are likely to regress, on account of increased environmental concerns and tightened regulations. Lately, a spurt in demand for biocides was seen as the green trend caught on with the consumers. Disease outbreaks as a consequence of poor hygiene and sanitization practices increased demand for I&I cleaners in facilities that handle and serve food products.

Food and Dairy Processing Cleaners are primed to grow at a robust pace through 2018, propelled by the need for high performance cleaning and hygiene agents. Certain specialized cleaners such as sanitizers and degreasers that aim at removing stubborn grease and stains and cleaners with high efficiency at both low and high temperatures are widely used in the food service industry. Augmented concerns towards prevention of cross contamination from soiled cooking platforms, utensils and accessories, in addition to hazardous food bacteria such as E. coli, would drive market demand.

North America and Europe dominates the I&I cleaning products market, collectively accounting for a massive chunk of the global market, as stated by the new market research report on Industrial and Institutional Cleaning Products. Both regional markets comprise small and large producers as well as handful of niche players. Although, both regional markets are mature, growth is expected through emerging sectors such as building service contractors and innovative applications in other end-use sectors. Economic growth in Eastern Europe and heightened hygiene standards are providing lucrative platform for applications of sanitation and janitorial cleaning products. Asia-Pacific, ranked as the highest populated region, is rapidly becoming one of the most dynamic markets for industrial and institutional cleaning products. The region is forecast to race ahead at a sturdy CAGR of 7.6% through 2018, spurred by dynamic activity in markets of Australia, New Zealand, China, Korea, and Thailand.
