Global housewares market is driven by the growing base of affluent middle class population in developing regions such as Asia-Pacific, Latin America and the Middle East. Especially poised to grow in demand are premium upscale products against a backdrop of the growing trend of investing in tabletopwares as fashionable collectibles. The widespread trend of giving exquisitely crafted tableware as gifts is also helping drive demand for premium quality products. Consumer preferences are rapidly shifting from conventional ornamental and antique designs to contemporary styled tabletopware. Casualization of lifestyles is a key factor influencing preferences for contemporary product design, colour, styles, and patterns. Pastel and citrus colours are currently in vogue in the dinnerware market, while platinum and gold decorated models are popular in the premium stemware and plateware market. Intense competition in the market necessitates manufacturers to innovate both in terms of performance as well as aesthetics to achieve exclusivity, and uniqueness in product design and features. Focus is also being shed on material development with manufacturers exploring a combination of materials such as ceramic and pewter to sculpt innovative and elegant products. Focus on connecting with family and friends and the ensuing trend towards home dining is spurring demand for cookware-cum-serveware as consumers prefer both convenience and a boutique dining experience. Asia-Pacific is forecast to witness robust growth led by growing population, rise in the number of dual income nuclear households, changing needs of the younger generation, casualization of lifestyle habits, increasing disposable incomes, and rapid urbanization.
The upcoming report will offer coverage on major companies including Guy Degrenne SA, Lenox Corporation, Mikasa & Company, Noritake Co Ltd., Oneida Ltd., Pfaltzgraff Co, The Zrike Company Inc., Villeroy & Boch AG, and WWRD Holdings Ltd., among others.
