Transparency Market Research
Catering equipment is used to prepare, serve, and store food in hotels, restaurants, hospitals, cafes, and nursing homes. The global catering equipment market is expected to witness tremendous growth in the near future. Increasing number of hotels and restaurants, cafes and food joints, and hospitals and nursing homes are contributing to the growth of this market. Some of the catering equipment is also used to wash food items, utensils, and crockery.
The demand for catering equipment is driven by the overall improvement in an economy and the strong resilience of the hospitality sector. Key factors influencing the market include the increasing levels of consumer confidence and the very strong growth in the eating out sector. The market is expected to grow at a significant pace in the next few years due to product development with higher hygiene standards, the development of restaurant and hotel chains, and the demand for small and more sustainable products.
New product development is a major growth driver of demand for catering equipment. The current focus is directed toward the development of equipment and products that help to comply with health and hygiene, and safety regulations. Technological advancement such as wash zones or separate drawers to allow the dishwasher to run a half-load, steam cycles to clean, dry, and sanitize dishes in dishwashers, utensil cleaners etc., have also resulted in reducing the level of water usage.
Price competition, particularly from low value imports, and life-span of products is affecting the growth of the catering equipment market negatively. Longer life span of products reduces the replacement cycle. Absence of stringent government regulations is one of the major factors affecting the growth of the catering equipment market across the globe. Further, poor quality of low cost catering equipment, high cost of advanced equipment, and less demand in under developed countries acts as major restraints to the market.
