Changes in lifestyle and eating habits among young consumers along with the growing trend of outdoor parties and social gatherings have increased the demand for low and slow-cooked barbeques, such as brisket, pork shoulder, and pork ribs. This factor is anticipated to contribute to the growth of the industry in the forthcoming years. Unlike all the other products, the barbeque (BBQ) grill didn’t face severe impact due to the pandemic. Restaurants being closed or difficult to get into along with lockdowns mandated by governments around the globe, more people started cooking at home. According to Hearth, Patio & Barbeque Association (HPBA) consumer research published in November 2021, 38% of all grill owners purchased a new grill in the past two years. Of those who purchased in 2020, 27% did so as they were cooking at home more due to the pandemic.
With changing consumer preferences and tastes, restaurants are trying to bring innovative and new dishes to the plates. Earlier, most of the restaurants used to only provide barbeque chicken, seafood, and vegetable, however, now a day’s restaurants have started providing barbeque beetroot, and sweet potato as well as those items which were previously only consumed boiled. According to Chicago-based Mintel International’s Menu Insights (MMI), barbeque is growing significantly in hotels and restaurants, with overall barbeque menu items increasing 11% from the Q4 of 2016 to the Q4 of 2021.

This massive growth in the number of hotels is driving the demand for easy-to-cook barbeque grill equipment which not only brings the taste to the table but also health benefits leading to the growth of the market..
The growth of the barbeque grill market can be attributed to increasing consumer spending on high-quality and designer grills owing to the growing preference for outdoor cooking and making a statement with backyard entertainment. However, the rapidly changing consumer preferences and needs encourage manufacturers to innovate, improve, and diversify their product offerings to meet the changing demands of consumers worldwide.
