Report Overview: QSR Food Service Equipment Market
The global QSR food service equipment market size was valued at USD 11.7 billion in 2020 and is projected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.4% from 2021 to 2027. The changing lifestyle and food preferences along with rapid urbanization have led to an increase in the number of Quick Services Restaurants (QSR), thereby driving the demand for various types of food service equipment. The initial inclination of urban youth towards processed fast food led to the establishment of multiple fast food serving restaurants. However, the inclusion of healthier food in various QSRs, such as Chipotle Mexican Grill, KFC, and Subway, has also proved to be integral in the market growth over the past few years.
According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the QSRs in the country grew by nearly 20% reaching over 340,000 establishments in 2015 in comparison to approximately 285,000 in 2000. The growth has been supported by the increasing number of diners. The rush in restraints is met by a greater number of orders for which restaurant chefs need advanced equipment apart from traditional ones to shorten the cooking time. The chefs alter multiple recipes as the orders are random and customers expect shorter waiting times. Hence, advanced equipment with sensors and controls, interactive cooking, and pre-programmable features are expected to witness high demand over the forecast period 2021-2027.
Most of the quick-service restaurant menus include pizza, burger, pasta, and french fries, which are categorized as fast food. However, these food items are modified as per the country of operation and local consumer preference. The food choices across the world also dictate the demand for most often used kitchen equipment, such as rice cookers and steamers in Asian countries to the ovens and griddles in Europe and North America. Moreover, rising demand for international and local fast food results in an increasing number of QSRs, which will further boost the demand for QSR food service equipment.
The vendors involved in the manufacturing of QSR kitchen equipment face challenges of meeting the standard specification while following the government guideline for energy consumption. Moreover, the higher cost of installation and repair often inhibits small restaurants from opting for premium kitchen equipment, thereby restricting market growth. However, the higher Return-on-Investment (RoI) also encourages most of the medium-sized restaurants to invest in these time-saving and efficient kitchen equipment.
