The U.S. drinkware market size was valued at USD 714.83 million in 2022 and is projected to grow from USD 750.86 million in 2023 to USD 1,152.85 million by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.32% during the forecast period (2023-2030).

Drinkware products are glasses or cups used to drink any beverage. These products are made from stainless steel, plastic or glass and are popular for their appearance and elegance, notably in bars and restaurants. The increasing demand for specialized glassware used in bars, pubs and restaurants favors market expansion.

Rising investments in the hospitality industry and increased consumer spending in bars, restaurants, and hotels increase the global market share. Moreover, the increasing consumer spending on dining out and entertainment triggers the product demand, thus amplifying the market share. Moreover, the rising trend of craft cocktails and mixology culture positively propels the product demand across bars and restaurants, increasing the U.S. drinkware market share. Given that the U.S. is a prominent domestic market for drinkware, the evolution of the U.S. market increases the global market growth.


Closure of Bars and Restaurants during the Pandemic Impacted Market Growth

The COVID-19 pandemic created unprecedented challenges and disruptions for various industries in 2020, including the drinkware market in the U.S. Government-imposed lockdowns and restrictions led to the closure of bars, restaurants, and hospitality establishments in 2020. This factor significantly reduced the demand for barware and stemware products as these establishments scaled down or ceased their operations. For instance, according to the National Restaurant Association, the restaurant and food service industry's food and beverage sales in the U.S. decreased from USD 864.3 billion in 2019 to USD 659.0 billion in 2020.

The shift from offline to online sales was significant in 2020 due to the closure of physical retail stores during the lockdown. The multichannel approach became a significant trend, resulting in positive growth for manufacturers as several companies and retailers quickly adapted to online sales by improving their e-commerce capabilities and digital presence.

U.S. Drinkware Market Trends

Increasing Availability of Innovative Products to Propel Product Demand

Creative and visually appealing designs in glassware, including cups and glasses, are gaining popularity in the U.S., making them functional and fashionable. Moreover, the trend of tailored stemware for wine varietals enhancing the wine-tasting experience has had a positive impact on the market. Besides, several prominent players have launched innovative products to diversify their portfolios and boost sales.

For instance, in February 2023, Dragon Glassware, a California-based glassware company, launched the new astronaut glasses. According to the company, the product features a double-walled design of an astronaut inside the glass with an iridescent NASA symbol and Artemis badge.

U.S. Drinkware Market Growth Factors

Increasing Consumption of Beverages in the U.S. to Favor Market Growth

The rapidly growing consumption of beer and wine during meetings and social gatherings in the U.S. boosts market growth. According to the Brewers Association, a U.S.-based trade association, the total number of breweries in the U.S. increased from 9,092 in 2020 to 9,709 in 2022. The increasing number of breweries nationwide increases the demand for beer glassware across the U.S. states.

The increasing alcohol consumption in the U.S. increases the demand for glassware across the country. The growing wine and wellness trend, owing to the convergence of health-conscious lifestyles and health benefits of wine consumption, also significantly contributes to the demand for wine across the country, propelling the U.S. drinkware market growth.

Rapidly Evolving Hospitality Industry to Propel Market Growth

The hospitality industry in the U.S. has witnessed significant growth backed by the rapidly evolving tourism sector. In this respect, the U.S. tourism industry will contribute significantly to the number of commercial establishments countrywide throughout the forecast timeframe, fueling the product demand. Moreover, hospitality establishments constantly strive to positively enhance customer experience, accelerating the adoption of innovative, stylish, and functional products. At a macro level, the rising demand for customized barware glasses used in bars and restaurants positively influences market trends.


High Production Costs and Counterfeiting Products Limit Market Growth

Fluctuations in raw material prices, such as plastic resins and sand, impact the cost of manufacturing. The price fluctuations negatively affect product pricing and profitability, reducing the product demand from price-sensitive consumers. Moreover, the production process for glassware involves energy-intensive steps, including glass melting and shaping, contributing to high manufacturing costs. These higher costs can influence pricing strategies and limit the market's attractiveness to price-sensitive consumers.

Furthermore, the rising availability of counterfeit products at lower prices presents significant challenges for manufacturers. Counterfeit products often do not adhere to the same quality standards as genuine products, which can restrict the product demand in the U.S.
