SUMMARY OF REPORT CONTENTS
UK household expenditure on catering services, including drink, in 2013 was nearly £84bn. This can be compared to £112bn spent by households on home consumption of food and drink in the same year. The catering market struggled during the recession but has experienced a rising trend in expenditure since 2010 and has proved to be a successful sector outperforming most other areas of consumer spending over the last 5 years.
In 2014, the non-domestic catering equipment market was estimated to be worth £765 million. This represents a growth rate of around 4% on 2013. 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 food industry.
The catering equipment market has experienced difficult trading conditions in recent years, especially in 2009 and 2010 when it declined by over 15% in total. This reflected the poor economy and struggling leisure and hospitality sectors. Whilst the government remains committed to public sector cutbacks affecting some demand, particularly in government office catering due to staff reductions, the budgets for the NHS remain secure along with educational catering which has been singled out and budgeted for future growth in catering needs including the extension of free school meals.
The main factor supporting market growth of the catering equipment market since 2010 has been the overall improvement in the economy and the strong resilience of the restaurant sector. Innovative concepts and new restaurant brands, along with an improvement in household spending on eating out has helped grow the catering sector - and therefore demand for catering equipment.
Factors supporting market growth include product development creating added value features; higher hygiene standards; the requirement for smaller and 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 are increased price competition particularly from lower value imports; and longer life-spans of products reducing replacement cycles.
Cooking equipment represents over 50% of market value, and is the largest sector, due in part to the high cost of these products. Refrigeration accounts for around a quarter, with steel fabrication, warewashing and other products making up the remaining market value. The leading end user is the hospitality sector, with restaurants, cafes and bars accounting for around 54% of the market. The remainder is accounted for by health and education, with a reasonable share, hotels, and other sectors such as offices, leisure and retail.
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.
The outlook for the UK economy is good although somewhat still cautious, given the dependency on the housing market recovery and ongoing debt/banking problems in the Eurozone and levels of confidence in the global economy. The hospitality industry continues to grow with the restaurant sector particularly a factor influencing growth in catering equipment demand. Consumers are eating out more often and business investors have renewed confidence and are once again investing in future new business.
The government has committed to reducing the level of public sector debt, resulting in reduced levels of expenditure across many government departments. This will continue to depress demand for catering equipment within government departments, but other sectors continue to show ongoing sustained budgets, for example in healthcare with education receiving an extra boost of over £1 billion in funding in 2014-15 for the free school meals programme.
Although the replacement market is the larger market, levels of non-domestic construction output have an impact on the market for catering equipment. In the non-housing sector, construction output stabilised in 2012 and 2013 and many sectors were showing more positive signs in late-2014. Opportunities resulting from construction output improvements are likely to improve in the medium to longer term.
