Why is Demand for Dinnerware High?

Dinnerware has huge demand in diverse commercial sectors, starting from restaurants to catering services. As a result, high requirement for dinnerware has major contribution to the demand growth for glass tableware.

As stated in a report titled “Travel, Tourism & Hospitality Industry Spotlight”, published by Select USA, the U.S. travel & tourism industry generated over US$ 1.6 trillion in economic output in 2017, while supporting 7.8 million U.S. jobs.

This industry, being deeply connected with the hotel industry, is indirectly fuelling the sales of glass tableware, especially dinnerware, which is extensively used in this sector. Though the hospitality industry suffered severely during the COVID-19 outbreak, it has started recovering and is expected to have substantial contribution to industry growth in the near future.

What are the Key Challenges Faced by Glass Tableware Manufacturers?

Some of the restraining factors affecting demand for glass tableware are-

  • Quality issues in terms of durability and composition
  • Constraint to maintain permanent residual stress
  • Difficulties in identifying and rectifying flaws

Also, glass tableware requires special attention during its transition to keep it intact, which incurs additional costs. It is also not suitable for one-time usage. Hence, plastic, metal, and other materials are often preferred by consumers, which is a major challenge for manufacturers.

However, with continuous efforts, adoption of strategic approaches, and increased research & development (R&D) activities by manufacturers, they are expected to overcome these restraints in the near future.
