Analysis of market prospects for the production of paper cups, paper bowls, and paper lunch boxes
Paper cups, paper bowls, and paper lunch boxes are the vital green tableware in the 21st century:
Since its inception, paper tableware has been widely promoted and used by factories in developed countries and regions such as Europe, America, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, and Hong Kong. Paper products are uniquely beautiful, environmentally friendly, oil-proof and temperature-resistant, and are non-toxic, tasteless, good image, good-feeling, biodegradable, and pollution-free. Paper tableware-entering the market quickly became accepted by people with its unique charm. International fast food and beverage suppliers such as McDonald's, KFC, Coca-Cola, Pepsi and instant noodle manufacturers all use paper tableware.
While the plastic products that appeared twenty years ago and are known as the "color revolution" brought convenience to mankind, they also produced "white pollution" that is difficult to eliminate today. Because plastic tableware is difficult to recycle, incineration produces harmful gases, and cannot be degraded naturally, and burial will destroy the soil structure. The Chinese government spends hundreds of millions of dollars every year to deal with it, but the results are not great. The development of green environmental protection products and the elimination of white pollution have become a major global social problem.
At present, from an international point of view, many European and American countries have already banned the use of plastic tableware. From the domestic situation, the Ministry of Railways, the Ministry of Communications, the State Environmental Protection Administration, the State Planning Commission, the Ministry of Science and Technology, and many large cities such as Wuhan, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Dalian, Xiamen, Guangzhou and many other large cities have taken the lead in issuing laws and regulations to completely ban the use--times The National Economic and Trade Commission (1999) No. 6 document also clearly stipulates that at the end of 2000, the use of plastic catering products is completely banned nationwide. A global revolution in the plastic tableware manufacturing industry is gradually emerging. The green products that "replace plastic with paper" have become one of the development trends of today's society.
In order to adapt to and promote the development of the activity of replacing plastic with paper, on December 28, 1999, the State Economic and Trade Commission, together with the National Bureau of Quality and Technical Supervision, the Ministry of Science and Technology and the Ministry of Health, issued the General Technical Standards for Disposable Degradable Tableware and The two national standards of "One-time Degradable Performance Test Method" have been implemented since January 1, 2000. They provide a unified technical basis for the production, sales, use and supervision of my country's one-time degradable tableware.
With the rapid development of my country's economy and the steady improvement of people's living standards, people's awareness of hygiene and health is also constantly strengthening. At present, disposable paper cups have become a necessity for people in many economically developed areas. Experts predict: During the year, paper-based tableware will quickly become popular throughout the country and enter households in large numbers, and its market is rapidly growing and expanding.
Plastic tableware is the general trend to end its historical mission, and paper tableware is becoming a fashion trend. At present, the paper product market has just started, and the market prospects are broad. According to statistics, the consumption of paper-based tableware was 3 billion in 1999, and reached 4.5 billion in 2000. It is expected that it will increase sharply at a rate of 50% every year in the next five years. Paper catering utensils are now widely used in commerce, aviation, mid-to-high-end fast food restaurants, cold drinks halls, large and medium-sized enterprises, government departments, hotels, families in economically developed areas, etc., and are rapidly expanding to medium and small cities in the interior. In China, the most populous country in the world. The huge market potential provides a broad space for paper manufacturers
