Paper cups are used all over the world to serve food and beverages like tea, coffee, soft drinks, instant noodles, sweet corn, etc. Commercially, paper cups are coated with polyethylene to make them liquid resistant and thus increase their durability. The coating also helps to weld the seams together. There are two types of paper cups: hot and cold. Cold cups have a waxy coating on both the sides to prevent the paper from becoming soggy. Hot cups on the other hand, have a coating only on one side and are designed specifically to withstand the heat. The growing foodservice industry is one of the major factors that is currently driving the growth of the paper cups market globally. Growing health concerns and the awareness about hygiene and sanitation have also urged people to utilize paper cups in public places. Moreover, they are convenient to use and are environment friendly due to their higher biodegradability compared to plastic or foam cups.
