The global commercial countertop soup warmer market is now valued at more than $289m, according to the latest Commercial Soup Warmer Market Report published by US-based research firm, 360 Research Reports.
The firm believes this figure was reached owing to the increase in demand for countertop models with improved features and innovative technologies.
For instance, Roband Australia provides countertop soup warmers with cauldron-shaped design and glass-filled nylon outer casing so that the heat transfer is reduced and burn injuries to the operators are minimised.
Plus The Vollrath Company provides induction dethermalisers with the sensors that give instruction to the operator to stir the liquid.
These commercial soup warmers with improved sensors and controls are relatively higher priced than their standard counterparts.
This increased demand for better sensor and control equipped soup warmers is expected to propel the growth of the commercial soup warmer market during the forecast period.
