Global Cutlery Market Projected to Add Nearly 2x Value through 2031: Fact.MR Study

Published : 10 Aug 2021 Industry: Consumer Goods

A recently published report by Fact.MR expects global demand for cutlery is anticipated to surpass US$ 10 Bn by 2031, registering a CAGR exceeding 6% throughout the assessment period. The market is expected to receive credible stimulus with the introduction of edible and recyclable cutlery in forthcoming years.

From 2016 to 2020, global cutlery sales flourished at a CAGR of 4%, clocking a valuation exceeding US$ 5 Bn by the end of the historical period. There has been an increase in the demand for products during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic due to the increasing trend of home cooking as consumers try to avoid exposure to the virus across restaurants.

With the growing popularity of social dining, tabletop kitchen products are expected to increase in demand. Market expansion is expected to be driven by increasing demand for organic, sustainable products derived from wheat stalks and other edible materials. Growing demand for cutlery in the kitchen and dining room raises the need for innovative and fashionable cutleries in the market

Key Takeaways from the Market Study

  • Online sales channels to account for 50% of global cutlery distribution platforms
  • Demand from food services outlets is poised to be valued at an expansion rate of 6% CAGR
  • By product, spoons to remain top selling category, accounting for 3 out of 5 sales

“With single-use cutlery becoming more and more adaptable to natural and food waste, biodegradable cutlery will be increasingly sought after in the near future,” says a Fact.MR analyst.
