The coating also helps to weld the seams together. The paper cups are bifurcated into two types: hot and cold. Hot cups usually have a wax coating on one side of the cup, which is designed to withstand the heat. On the other hand, cold paper cups have the wax coating on both the sides, which prevents the paper from getting soggy. In recent years, paper cups account for half of the total global disposable cups consumption, followed by polystyrene foam cups and plastic cups. According to the report, the market is expected to reach a consumption value of 266 Billion units by 2022.
