Executive Summary

This Key Note Market Report examines the kitchenware market in the UK. Overall, the industry has remained resilient throughout the economic crisis due to changes in consumer habits. Still, in 2011, growth slowed to 3.6%, its lowest rate since 2007.The kitchenware industry is divided into four principle categories: cookware, ovenware, kitchen utensils and cleaning and storage. Cookware is the largest section, and accounted for 41.7% of the market in 2011 according to Key Note estimates. Ovenware grew the most over the course of the year (4.2%), while the kitchen utensils and cleaning and storage subsectors increased by 3.1% and 3%, in value respectively.The kitchenware industry has benefitted from the economic downturn. In a bid to save money, consumers are choosing to stay at home and are cooking both out of necessity and for fun. Since they are no longer dining out as frequently, consumers are spending more time entertaining at home, which includes cooking for themselves and for their guests. Moreover, consumers are preparing their own lunches at home to take to school and work, so as to further economise. This has particularly boosted sales in the storage containers category.As such, consumers in the UK, are increasingly discovering that they enjoy cooking and baking. The growing popularity of these activities has boosted kitchenware sales and allowed the industry to prosper. However, consumers, who lead increasingly busy lifestyles, do not necessarily have the time to spend hours in the kitchen. Convenience has been a key theme in innovation in the industry. Products that are easy-to-clean and that speed up the cooking process have been introduced. Still, the primary focus of innovation has been on design. Consumers want kitchenware that reflects their personalities and manufacturers are competing to make their products stand out by selling dynamic designs, for instance, through the inclusion of limited edition ranges that coincide with national events, such as the 2012 Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympic and Paralympics Games.Although the market will remain tough over the next 5 years, Key Note predicts that the kitchenware industry will continue to grow year-on-year. Internet sales, social networking channels, character-defining kitchenware and premium value ranges will contribute to this rise. A key trend in the industry will be the polarisation of the market. The kitchenware industry is expected to grow by 11.2% between 2012 and 2016.
