The evolution of self-service kiosks in restaurants has resulted in the growing adoption of commercial tableware services in large numbers. Events such as holiday parties, business meetings, weddings, or any other social gatherings require feeding a large number of people, wherein a buffet system is considered to be the ideal service option. This scenario is expected to result in the growing adoption of a large number of serving ware such as plates & bowls and cutlery along with other buffet products.

The COVID-19 outbreak has decreased the demand for commercial tableware services quite significantly across the globe. The pandemic has resulted in a stay-at-home situation for hundreds of thousands of people worldwide, which has significantly reduced the incidence of leisure activities, like picnics, parties, and celebrations. Social interaction and gathering have come to a halt or at least reduced by a huge margin posing a great challenge to the commercial tableware services market. This has given a sudden jolt to the growth of the market.

Rapidly increasing urbanization across developing economies is a prominent factor leading to a positive market scenario for commercial tableware services. In line with this, growing investments by countries for the construction of office buildings, hotels, retail stores, malls, hospitals, and other commercial infrastructure will result in the demand for various kinds of commercial tableware services.

A rising section of the population in India has been shifting to countries such as Canada and the U.S., which has created a positive demand for commercial tableware in the North American region. The trend of opening restaurants, cafes, and small eateries that cater to Indians in these countries is gaining much prominence, creating numerous demand opportunities in the market for commercial tableware services.

Distribution Channel Insights 

The offline distribution channel was the largest segment in 2020 and accounted for a revenue share of 92.6% in that year. The segment is expected to progress at a CAGR of 4.8% from 2021 to 2028. The availability of a large variety of products, along with discounts and offers, has been attracting consumers to buy tableware products from offline distribution channels such as supermarkets, specialty shops, and retail outlets. The online channel segment accounted for a revenue share of 7.4% in 2020. The segment is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 2.8% from 2021 to 2028. The growth of this segment is attributed to the ease and convenience associated with ordering products online.

The offline channel includes hypermarkets/supermarkets, convenience stores, and specialty stores. The offline distribution channel segment is also expected to grow at the fastest rate over the forecast period. Business owners directly buy from either specialty stores or hypermarkets as the price and product availability is better in a store than on websites or e-commerce platforms. Business owners shop from a specific kind of store because they purchase in large quantities and they can get the best price on these products at such stores.

In the recent past, there has been an increasing awareness regarding copper as an essential trace mineral and its associated health benefits, which led to copperware gaining traction in the dinnerware segment. Although still a niche category of material, copperware has also been linked to its aesthetic appeal and cultural association in many parts of the world, which would further lead to its incorporation in dinnerware products. One other major trend influencing the dinnerware space is a general shift from white dinnerware to those with color contrasts matching a particular kitchen’s overall aesthetic.
