the disposable tableware market


1.1 Definition and Introduction

The disposable tableware market represents all dishes, cups, napkins, tablecloths, cutlery, etc., for individual or ephemeral use, mainly plastic-based. These products are made from two types of polymer which will then be used to estimate the size of this market: polystyrenes (PS) and polypropylene (PP).

The biggest novelty in this market is the new legislation in force. In light of Lisbon's election as the European Green Capital of 2020, the Portuguese government this year implemented a law that prohibits food and drink establishments, together with the retail sector, from using and supplying single-use plastic tableware.
