The market's expansion is hampered by the high cost of culinary equipment and a scarcity of experienced operators. The rising per capita income in emerging nations, the rise in multi-function food appliances, the rise in Wi-Fi and Internet-enabled gadgets, and the expanding trend of the Food Service Equipment market are all creating prospects for market sellers.
The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in the temporary shutdown of food service operations owing to stringent social distancing and shelter-in-place norms imposed by governments worldwide. This resulted in negative growth of the industry as both production and sales were negligible during 2020. Nevertheless, as governments announce relaxations to lockdowns and the first vaccines arrive, the food service industry is expected to bounce back over the forecast period. While the dine-in restaurant traffic is expected to take longer to come to normalcy, end customers are expected to recover through off-premise, takeaways, and online delivery services. On account of the subsequent rise in footfall in food service restaurants and institutional kitchens, the beleaguered market is expected to flourish over the years to come.
