The global thermos bottle market size was USD 4.67 billion in 2020. The market is projected to grow from USD 4.75 billion in 2021 to USD 6.50 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 4.60% in the 2021-2028 period. The global impact of COVID-19 has been staggering and unprecedented, with thermos bottle witnessing a negative impact on demand across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a lower growth rate of 2.34% in 2020 as compared to the average year-on-year growth during 2017-2019. The rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

Individuals essentially use thermos cups and thermos bottles to keep themselves hydrated. Such products are ideal for storing & preserving ready-to-drink (RTD) liquids. Such products are widely available in different sizes and colors in the market. The vacuum layer plays an essential role in maintaining the liquids’ temperature level inside the insulated bottles. Nowadays, companies offer innovative bottles to enable users to preserve their drinks for longer. For instance, in August 2020, Xiaomi Corporation introduced Mijia Bullet Thermos Flask, a thermos water bottle containing a laser welding technology-based vacuum layer inside it. Such a product has 12 hours of cold/heat preservation and 500 ml of capacity.


Departmental Store Closures Amid COVID-19 Lockdown Restrictions to Negatively Impact Market

Shutting down of departmental stores and supermarkets due to the COVID-19 related lockdown restrictions in many countries worldwide hampered the product sales from these stores. Additionally, the closure of the companies’ thermos bottle manufacturing sites due to such restrictions has significantly impacted the thermos bottle market growth during the pandemic. Besides, during the pandemic, evolving work-from-home & homeschooling trends and arising social distancing norms & travel restrictions are the factors negatively impacting the consumer demand for the water bottles.

As per the research study conducted by the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), in April 2020, SARS COV-2 can last up to 72 hours on plastic & stainless steel surfaces. Hence, conscious consumers prefer glass or cardboard material-based bottles over single-use plastic-based bottles to avoid coronavirus infection from plastic surfaces. This will offer newer industry growth opportunities during the pandemic.

Companies Focus on Sustainable Material-based Thermos Bottles to Amplify Market Growth

Nowadays, companies offer sustainable and recycled material-based bottles to avoid environmental degradation and CO2 emissions due to plastic-based flasks. This will open newer avenues for the global industry growth. For instance, in June 2021, Nestle S.A. launched recycled plastic material-based thermos water bottles in the U.S. Additionally, shifting sportsman consumer preference toward innovative sporting goods, including backpacks, wears, hydration performance tracking thermos type of water bottles, and others are offering newer opportunities for the companies to grow their business. Besides, increasing consumers’ inclination toward high-end lifestyle products fuels the vacuum flask market growth.


Companies Introduce Innovative Thermos Bottle Products to Drive Market

Nowadays, key players are regularly introducing innovative technology-based bottle products to attract consumers to buy such products, which will drive the market growth. For instance, in February 2021, Thermos LLC, in partnership with the greeting card and stationery designer Rachel Ellen, launched a line of innovative, insulated thermos water bottles, food containers, and lunch bags.

Additionally, companies’ regular introduction of water bottle-related market campaigns will support the consumption rate of such products. For instance, in May 2021, Ocean Bottle, a sustainable water bottle maker, launched the NFC smart chip impact platform with the GAIL Bakery to promote its brand and contribute toward environmental sustainability.

Increased Spending from Consumers Toward Sports and Leisure to Support Market

Increasing consumer spending on sports and outdoor leisure products such as backpacks, thermos water bottles, shoes, wearables, and others will ease the companies’ sales revenues from such products, thereby accelerating the market growth. According to the data presented by the Sports Event and Tourism Association (Sports ETA), in 2019, U.S. spending on sports-related traveling reached USD 45.1 billion, 2% up over the previous year.

Nowadays, people suffer from excess sweating, vomiting, and other dehydration-related issues due to their limited water intake habits. As per the ‘National Health and Nutrition Examination survey presented by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), in February 2019, 40% of the community-dwelling older adults in Arizona, U.S. were under-dehydrated. Therefore, growing awareness regarding individuals' health and well-being further supports the product demand worldwide.


Easier Consumers’ Accessibility to Cheaper Alternatives to Limit Product Demand

Wide availability and easier consumers’ accessibility to the cheaper bottle products will impact the key companies’ product revenues. Additionally, the incidences of liquid contamination due to using stainless steel-based thermos water bottles for a longer duration limit product demand. Besides, huge competition from the local industry players is hampering future market development.
