Aspen wood is the most dominant material used to make chopsticks. Apart from aspen, bamboo, birch, and many other materials are used in producing one-off chopsticks. Majority of the chopsticks are crafted from different varieties of wood and then coated with paint, oil, or lacquer. Other typical woods used to make chopsticks are pine, cherry, cedar, sandalwood, and paulownia. Wood, used as raw material, needs to be hard and water-resistant. The grain & color of the wood is vital in maintaining the quality of one-off chopsticks.

Regional Insights

The Asia Pacific region held the largest market share in 2015 and accounted for over 60% of the industry share. However, North America is projected to be the fastest growing market and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of over 10% from 2016 to 2025. The rise in the number of manufacturing plants coupled with the high availability of aspen in this region is anticipated to drive the regional one-off chopsticks market. Furthermore, with the surging government regulations pertaining to deforestation, in China and other Asian countries, manufacturers are gradually shifting their focus toward the North American region.

Manufacturers would have to face local government restrictions, in China and other Asian countries, to reduce the usage of throwaway utensils including chopsticks. The Chinese government is taking efforts to safeguard its national forests by commending inhabitants for using reusable chopsticks.
