Industry Insights

The global induction cooktops market size was valued at USD 18.6 billion in 2018. Rising demand for time saving and energy efficient cooking appliances has been driving the demand for the product over the world. Furthermore, shifting trends towards modular kitchen among middle-income age groups in emerging economies including China and India is expected to expand the scope of induction cooktops in built-in formats.

Increasing awareness about safety has been attracting consumers all over the world to procure advanced cooking appliances. The technology of these cooktops generate an electromagnetic field and transfer heat directly to the metal cookware that is made of ferrous metals such as steel and iron. Generally, the surface of the product is made up of strong heat resistant glass or ceramic. As a result, the entire surface and the air surrounding the vessel does not get heated while cooking. Furthermore, these products automatically shut off when cookware is not present on the top. These features make the products safer and more energy efficient as compared to the conventional cooktop.

Increasing consumer interest in advanced technology is expected to boost the expansion of the industry over the world. The product offers a wide range of temperature (80‐450°F) and several power level options that ensure exact temperature control. Growing consciousness regarding healthy food among the working class population in developing economies including China and India is expected to positively impact the market growth, as the consumers are opting for cooktops that require less oil for cooking.

Rapid growth of online marketing across the globe is contributing significantly to the growth of the industry. Rapid adoption of high-tech products is anticipated to add to the growth of kitchen appliances, including cooking hobs. However, requirement of initial investment on specialized cookware may hamper the growth of the industry in the near future. Additionally, these products are considered to be more expensive as compared to the conventional gas cooktop.

Application Insights

The household application segment dominated the global induction cooktops market in 2018, accounting for over 70.0% share of the total revenue. The product gained remarkable popularity among the urban population, especially in the developing countries including China and India due to increasing purchasing power, rising LPG prices, and developing infrastructural facilities at a domestic level.

Benefits such as time saving cooking and easy cleaning have been attracting the growing working-class population. Furthermore, growing adoption of modular kitchen and smart cooking appliances has been driving the demand for the product in the household sector across the world.

The commercial application sector has also been witnessing a rise in the adoption of induction hobs. Increasing ventilation expenses in commercial kitchens are fueling the demand for the product in the commercial sector. Conventional gas burners need multiple ventilation systems as they generate thick smoke and increased heat dissipation. As a result, the manufacturers are introducing products that are compatible with a commercial kitchen.

These innovations are expected to encourage the owners of hotels, restaurants, and other foodservice to invest in commercial induction cooktops. In February 2017, Panasonic Corporation introduced Met-ALL KY-MK3500 that specifically designed for commercial foodservice industry use. This product is compatible with all metal cookware, including stainless steel, copper, and aluminum.

The online distribution channel is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR of 7.0% from 2019 to 2025. Rapidly growing digitalization and expansion of e-commerce, especially among the young and millennial population at a global level are driving the online sales of the product across the world. Additionally, a busy lifestyle, coupled with ease of transactions, will drive the online sales of the product. This, in turn, is expected to increase the revenue generation from this distribution channel over the forecast period.
