The global commercial tabletop kitchen products market size was valued at USD 9.93 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.5% from 2021 to 2028. The rising adoption of serving ware with significant development in the foodservice and hospitality industry has been significantly driving the demand for tabletop kitchen products in the commercial sector. Moreover, rising disposable incomes, changing lifestyles, and increasing social trends promoting social dining have contributed to an upscale in the demand for commercial tabletop kitchen products. The increasing number of commercial construction projects across the globe is likely to have a positive impact on the growth of the tabletop kitchen products market in the coming years.

Global commercial tabletop kitchen products market size, by material, 2016 - 2028 (USD Billion)

According to the construction blog by Autodesk, USD 11.4 trillion was spent on construction across the globe in 2018. The U.S. construction industry was worth USD 1.3 trillion in 2019, according to the Census Bureau. According to Redshift by Autodesk, the global construction industry needs to build 13,000 buildings each day between 2019 and 2050 in order to support an expected population of 7 billion people living in cities.

Rapid construction in the hospitality sector is projected to favor market growth. Improving performance of the hotel industry has resulted in a surge in hotel construction activities, especially in the U.S. According to Smith Travel Research (STR), hotel supplies increased by 1.8% in 2017 as compared to the previous year, which added 90,000 new hotel rooms across the country.

In addition, the surge in the number of quick-service restaurants (QSR), which offer convenient meal options with short delivery times, is generating an increased demand for various tabletop products, such as salt/pepper shakers, coffee thermoses, and serving trays. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, the number of quick-service restaurants operating in the U.S. grew by approximately 20% from 2000 to 2015. Thus, the growing trend of eating out and spending more on food is likely to drive the adoption of commercial tabletop kitchen products in the coming years.

Despite the positive outlook, the growing popularity of disposable cutlery, flatware, and drinkware products is a major factor contributing to the declining use of tabletop products. Smaller eateries generally opt for disposable tableware in order to minimize the hassle of cleaning, washing, and maintaining tableware as well as to save labor costs. The surge in the number of quick-service restaurants (QSRs) in urban and semi-urban markets and the growing water shortage to clean utensils in some cities are factors anticipated to drive the adoption of disposable tabletop kitchen products. This is expected to create challenges for the market over the forecast period.

Material & Product Insights 

The metal ware segment dominated the market with a share of over 43.0% in 2020. This is attributed to the increased adoption of metal ware in the commercial sector owing to its strain-resistant properties and low-maintenance quality. Product innovations, as well as new developments in this segment, are supporting the demand for metal ware products. For instance, in September 2020, Texas-based kitchenware company, Made In launched a tabletop collection that includes brand-new dinnerware, flatware, and glassware. The flatware collection includes pieces that combine rust-resistant materials in a carefully sourced Italian factory. The 20-piece flatware collection set includes utensils for five and comes with salad forks, dinner forks, dessert spoons, tablespoons, and solid-handle dinner knives.

By product, flatware made of metal is likely to expand at the highest CAGR of 8.0% over the forecast period. The growing trend of designing, styling, and customizing these products according to the latest trends and appeal is projected to present lucrative opportunities for metal flatware products. The current trend of sleek flatware typically combined with a two-tone finish in brass, copper, or black is attracting consumers. For instance, Casa de Perrin offers a set of 24K gold and wood flatware.

The porcelain segment is projected to expand at the highest CAGR of 8.3% from 2021 to 2028. The favorable properties of porcelain, such as strength, elasticity, permeability, cost-effectiveness, and translucency, have made it a highly durable tableware option. In addition, it has other advantages such as heat resistance, which makes it an excellent and practical material for microwave or oven dishes as it evenly distributes heat. Porcelain is also non-sticky, affordable, easy to clean, and available in a wide range of options, giving the segment an advantage over other materials.

Regional Insights                                                                                          

Asia Pacific dominated the market by accounting for over 33.0% share in 2020. The Asia Pacific region is witnessing a significant increase in the consumption of tabletop kitchen products. Markets in China and India will tremendously grow owing to the rising disposable incomes of consumers, rapid urbanization, and large population.

There is a decline in the growth of the overall Asia Pacific market due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Supply chain disruptions have affected the production and distribution processes. Pay reductions for factory workers have also been implemented. The hospitality sector boosts the growth of the tabletop kitchen products market, however, that has been put to a halt owing to the current scenario.

The North American region is projected to expand at a CAGR of 7.6% over the forecast period. The continuous expansion of commercial spaces, such as restaurants and eateries, across the region is likely to generate significant demand for commercial tabletop kitchen products in the coming years. A thriving travel and tourism industry also presents immense growth opportunities for different kitchen product categories owing to the growing consumer preference for luxurious stays in resorts or highly-rated hotels. These trends are likely to cast the spotlight on premium serving ware.
