Report Overview

The global smokehouse market size to be valued at USD 157.2 million by 2025 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.2% during the forecast period. Growing e-commerce retail industry and product innovation and new product development are anticipated to propel the demand in near future. Key players in the market have been trying to cater to both commercials as well as household needs. However, most households particularly in the Asia Pacific prefer the traditional wood-based grills as opposed to electric grills. Leading companies have been increasingly looking forward to product innovation and new product development to manufacture environment-friendly components using the latest technologies.

Smokehouse Market size, by type

E-shopping and buying with using a smartphone and personal devices, such as laptops and desktops have been gaining pace globally over the past few years. Media has a significant contribution in generating customer involvement and engagement in the smokehouse/grill industry.

Media including traditional as well as digital plays a key role in the overall smokehouse/grill market. Various media platforms act as a bridge in establishing communication between customers and suppliers.

The growing need for healthy food particularly in North America is expected to facilitate new players to invest in the market. Key players have been focusing on increasing their share in the industry particularly through various e-commerce platforms through product innovation and focusing on new product development.

Smokehouse Market Trends

Customers are increasingly preferring barbequed or grilled dishes over fried food and other sorts of fast food, due to the growing need for a healthy lifestyle. This is expected to have a positive impact on the growth of the market. Smokehouse demand is predicted to rise in the approaching years due to product novelty, new product development, and growth in e-commerce retail companies.

The initial high cost of investment with the large cost involved in operating a smokehouse is anticipated to limit the market growth. Consumer inclination towards fried and fast foods over barbequed or grilled items is likely to discourage the speed of the market growth. As two of the world's most populated countries, India and China have witnessed a rapid economic growth and shifting demography. The diet in these countries has switched from staples to meat as a result of income development, urbanization, and the transition to a market economy. A high population prefers meat-based products in their daily meals which eventually increases the demand for smokehouses in the market

Type Insights

The indoor grills segment is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 1.9% during the forecast period. These grills are used in commercial establishments such as restaurants and hotels as well as in households and food trucks. For indoor grilling and barbequing, gas and electric smokehouses are preferred since they are safer to use as compared to charcoal and wood smokehouses.

The outdoor grill segment is anticipated to hold the dominant market share during the forecast period. For outdoor grilling and barbequing, charcoal and fire smokehouses are preferred since they give the food a smoky flavor and help retain a soft texture.

Jim 'N Nick's Bar-B-Q; Dinosaur Bar-B-Que; Red Hot & Blue Restaurants; Famous Dave's of America, Inc.; and Smokey Bones are some of the major barbeque restaurants operating in U.S. These restaurants use indoor smokehouses for grilling and barbequing various types of food products.

Product Insights

The electric grill was estimated as the largest segment in 2017. They are cheaper than gas grills, can be used in both indoor and outdoor spaces, and are easy to clean. Also, since these grills just need to be plugged in to be used, there are not many restrictions and regulations governing their safe use.

Electric grills are gaining popularity in barbeque restaurants since they are safe to use indoors. The Weber-Stephen Products LLC, Equipex, LLC, and Char-Broil, LLC are among the major players that manufacture electric grills. Various regional players also cater to the demand from local markets.

Smokehouse Market share, by product

Gas grills are considered to be the most convenient option among the various types of grills that are available. In gas grills, the temperature can be adjusted as per requirement which makes it easy to grill almost everything.

Regional Insights

North America was the largest regional segment and it is projected to hold a major market share over the forecast period. Since almost every household in the region owns a grill, and the life expectancy of the grill is approximately three to seven years, the demand for grills that need to be replaced is expected to increase over the forecast and thus positively impact the market growth.

Smokehouse Market Trends by Region

July Fourth, Labor Day & Memorial Day (tied), Father’s Day, and Mother’s Day are the popular occasions celebrated across North America. These are some of the popular family outings and grilling occasions in the region. This factor is anticipated to bode well for the regional demand during the forthcoming years.

The Asia Pacific is characterized by the presence of a large number of skilled labor at low cost along with the easy availability of land. The region also witnesses the presence of a large number of regional players that cater to the local demand. The shift in production landscape toward emerging economies, particularly China and India, is expected to positively influence the market growth over the forecast period.

The market is characterized by the presence of various well-established players, such as Wolf Steel, Ltd., KitchenAid, Lynx Grills, and Viking Range Corporation along with various small and medium players such as R & V Works; Alto-Shaam, Inc.; and Town Food Service Equipment Company.

The companies face strong competition as the majority of them have similar product portfolios. Some of the players are well-established and have strong and vast distribution networks.
