Warewashing Equipment Market size is set to surpass USD 4 billion by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.
The rising demand for technologically advanced machines for cleaning dishes across different end-use industries is one of the major factors driving the market growth. The companies are developing new and advanced machines to reduce the manual work. For instance, in September 2020, LG launched its new line of Wi-Fi-enabled, smart LG QuadWash dishwashers, integrated with LG’s ThinQ app, allowing users to monitor cycle time & status, remotely lock & unlock controls, and automatically reorder detergent. Industry players are focusing on enhancing the efficiency of their warewashing equipment models with smartphone applications, making it convenient for users to control and monitor the equipment.
Stringent regulations imposed by various governments will support the warewashing equipment market progression during the forecast timeline. Regulatory and standardization bodies, such as the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Sanitation Foundation (NSF), and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), enforce stringent food safety guidelines in the U.S. These bodies have developed guidelines and a set of standards to be followed by commercial kitchens, fueling the warewashing equipment sales in the country.
One of the major factors hindering the industry growth is the high cost of equipment. The growing development of the warewashing equipment with integrated technologies and controls is increasing the overall cost of the equipment.
Heavy disruption in the food service industry due to COVID-19 across the globe has forced restaurant owners to postpone the purchase of high cost warewashing equipment for their kitchens, hampering the market value in 2020. The COVID-19 had also disrupted the overall supply chain, and implementation of lockdown by governments has shown a negative impact on the overall production of the warewashing equipment. However, the market is experiencing a gradual revival with the slow yet steady containment of the virus.
