Thermos Drinkware Market Size & Trends

The global thermos drinkware market size was estimated at USD 2.84 billion in 2022 and is expecyed to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.9% from 2023 to 2030.

U.S. thermos drinkware Market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

Rising awareness of plastic pollution levels globally is influencing consumers to disregard bottled water thereby enhancing market growth for stainless steel water bottles. In addition, the adoption of a healthier lifestyle among consumers to keep themselves hydrated is also expected to boost the sales of the product in the forecast period. In addition, the product helps cut greenhouse gas emissions by reducing plastic production. U.S. Census data for 2023 indicates that 60% of U.S. adults have embraced reusable bottles, aligning with these eco-conscious trends.

Reusable water bottles have a favorable financial impact. Despite an initial cost, they yield long-term savings as daily bottled water expenses accumulate. For instance, a 2023 blog post by TheRoundup notes that Americans purchase about 50 billion water bottles each year, equivalent to 13 bottles per person per month. Transitioning to reusable bottles could spare an average of 156 plastic bottles annually per person. This contributes to the rising global demand for thermos drinkware.

The strong inclination toward picnics and outdoor activities in city parks, local green areas, and public trails presents a favorable outlook for thermos bottles. For example, a survey conducted by Maru Voice Canada in 2021 revealed that 52% of Canadians express an increased interest in engaging in outdoor leisure activities more frequently.

Governments of various countries are taking initiatives to ban single-use plastic water bottles and instead promote reusable water bottles made of glass, metals, and other materials that are environment-friendly and safe to use. For instance, Australia, Canada, the U.S., and some states in India have banned single-use plastic water bottles, thereby opening up new growth opportunities for stainless-steel water bottle manufacturers.
