Industry Insights, Market Size, CAGR, High-Level Analysis: Serveware Market

The global serveware market size was valued at USD 12.3 billion in 2018 and is expected to register a CAGR of 3.7% over the forecast period. Growing popularity of ceramic ware and glassware in households across the globe has been propelling the market. The versatility of serveware in commercial applications is also a key factor driving the market. In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, these tableware are suitable for cooking as well as heating in the microwave/oven.
Design, shape, material, and color of dinnerware have been known to play a major role in whetting consumer appetite for various kinds of food. For instance, eating a salad in a bowl rather than out of the box is a lot more appealing. Choosing white serveware makes the colors of the food served stand out, thereby adding to its attractiveness. Players have been paying closer attention to such trends and details and have been incorporating the same in their products.

Social media and cooking shows on T.V. have had a significant influence on building, retaining, and changing consumer demand. Shows like the Great British Bake Off, Chopped, Top Chef, Good Eats, Hells Kitchen, Chefs Table, Master Chef, Iron Chef, and The Kitchen often emphasize on the art of plating and serving. Arranging food in a specific manner adds value to the dining experience and serving platters, bowls, boards, trays, compotes, and tiered stands play an active role in achieving this objective. Food bloggers and social media influencers on platforms such as Pinterest and Instagram lay a lot of emphasis on attractive and aesthetic plating to make food look beautiful and appetizing. This trend will continue to have a positive impact on market growth.
A wide variety of raw materials are used to make serveware: metals such as copper, aluminum, silver, and steel, plastic, glass, ceramic, and wood. Copper is a good conductor of heat and thus, copperware keeps food hot for a longer time. Using materials that can serve multiple purposes is a key demand by consumers. As a result, companies have been working on innovative products that can be used as bakeware and cookware as well as serveware. For instance, Hawkins Futura offers cook-n-serve bowls that are appropriate for cooking and serving.

Material Insights of Serveware Market

Metal-based products accounted for the largest share in the market in 2018. The dominance of the segment is attributed to the durability of metal-based kitchenware, including those made from steel, iron, aluminum, brass, bronze, silver, and copper. Consumers can choose from a wide variety depending upon their need and design choice. For instance, copperware is shiny and is an excellent heat conductor. Food is uniformly cooked in such vessels and serving food in them also adds an aesthetic touch. Lightweight aluminum is an excellent heat conductor.
