Report Overview

The global barbeque grill market size was estimated at USD 4.79 billion in 2018 and is anticipated to register a CAGR of 4.5% during the forecast period.

Barbeque grills are majorly made with porcelain-enameled cast iron, porcelain-enameled steel, and stainless steel. The lifespan of stainless steel is comparatively higher while the price is comparatively lower than other materials which drives its popularity. Manufacturers provide a one to 10-year warranty based on the type of material of the grill. High-end products are mostly available with a lifetime burner warranty. For instance, a U.S.-based luxury grills and accessories manufacturer Vintage provides a lifetime warranty on burners and select accessories.
