Research and Markets: Non-Domestic Catering Equipment Market Report - UK 2012-2016 Analysis

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Non-Domestic Catering Equipment Market Report - UK 2012-2016 Analysis" report to their offering.

AMA Research are pleased to announce the publication of the 1st edition of the report Non-Domestic Catering Equipment Market Report - UK 2012-2016 Analysis'. Incorporating original input and primary research, the report provides a wide-ranging and informative perspective on the sector.

The market is considered to be mature across all sectors. As a result there is limited potential for growth through increased penetration, making the market subject to performance of the overall economy and construction industry.

The catering equipment market has experienced difficult trading conditions in recent years, reflecting the poor economy and struggling leisure and hospitality sectors. Whilst boosted by some large scale public sector refurbishment and new build programmes such as Building Schools for the Future, the cancellation of such schemes is likely to impact on market growth in the short term.

The outlook for the UK economy remains fragile, with the Bank of England downgrading its growth forecast in 2012, with low growth in the medium term. The hospitality sector has been heavily hit by falls in consumer confidence and public sector cuts to capital programmes.

Factors supporting market growth include product development creating added value features, the requirement for more environmentally friendly, sustainable products, often of higher value, in response to tightening legislation and the development of restaurant and hotel chains.

Factors negatively affecting market growth include continued low levels of construction in key end use sectors, increased price competition from low value imports and longer life-spans of products reducing replacement cycles.

The leading manufacturers within this market include the Ali Group, Electrolux Professional, and the Middleby Corporation all of whom supply a wide range of catering equipment products. In addition there are a number of smaller general manufacturers and a vast number of small, specialist producers.

Cooking equipment represents the largest sector. This is due in part to the high cost of these products. Refrigeration, Steel fabrication, warewashing and other products make up the remaining market value.

Products are largely distributed through specialist distributors and designers and installers, although there is some direct delivery, particularly as the internet becomes more widely used. Direct delivery is more prevalent in the steel fabrication side, where bespoke solutions dominate.
