The global pressure cooker market size was USD 4.47 billion in 2020. The market is expected to grow from USD 4.57 billion in 2021 to USD 7.44 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 7.2% in the 2021-2028 period. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with pressure cooker witnessing a negative impact on demand across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a lower growth of -22.62% in 2020 as compared to the average year-on-year growth during 2017-2019. The rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

People commonly use pressure cookers to fulfill their everyday cooking needs. Pot capacity, design material, and cooking time mainly impact the demand for such products. Nowadays, hotel chefs and household maids are shifting toward multifunctional cooking appliances to instantly cook food dishes. Hence, prominent manufacturers are focusing on offering multi-purpose devices to meet such varying consumer needs. For instance, in June 2020, Panasonic Corporation introduced 'NN-CD87KS Home Chef 4 in 1 Countertop Microwave Oven', a multiple cook functional cooking appliance that includes a multi-crockery pot and a toaster oven.


Shutting down of Crookery Stores Due to COVID-19 Related Restrictions to Hamper Market

COVID-19 related lockdown restrictions have forced crookery stores and supermarkets to shut down their businesses which have strongly impacted product sales. Additionally, the shutdown of hotels, restaurants, cafes and other commercial settings due to such restrictions has negatively impacted the product's consumption rate. According to the statistical data published by National Restaurant Association, as of January 2021, more than 17% of the restaurants in the U.S. have been shuttled down since the onset of coronavirus crises in the country. 

However, increasing working women's preference for the remote working style and ongoing cooking & baking trends will support the product's demand among households.

Shifting Consumers' Preference Toward Smart Kitchen Appliances to Aid Market

Shifting consumers' preference toward smart kitchen appliances is accelerating product revenue worldwide. For instance, in 2020, Cuckoo Electronics Co., a South Korean smart kitchen appliances maker, reported 56% jump in its revenues over 2019. Also, growing popularity of application controlled-crockeries among household consumers is offering newer market growth opportunities. Besides, shifting consumer preference toward energy-efficient kitchen electrics will provide further avenues to market growth.


Governmental Promotion for Sustainable Cooking Appliances to Augment Market

Nowadays, government authorities are coming up with various initiatives to offer clean cooking solutions to people and companies. These governmental authorities’ efforts will increase demand for sustainably-made cooking appliances worldwide. For instance, in December 2020, Modern Energy Cooking Services (MECS), a U.K.-based, clean cooking solution provider, collaborated with the World Bank Group to develop an ecosystem of clean cooking appliances manufacturers in India, Africa, and Southeast Asia countries.

Additionally, regular companies' provision of innovative kitchen electrics is likely to attract consumers toward buying such products, thereby accelerating the pressure cooker market growth. As of April 2021, Groupe SEB, a leading pressure cooker maker, manufactured and launched more than 250 million small appliances worldwide.

Continued Companies' Offering of Cooking-related Educational Content to Sustain Market

Nowadays, companies offer cooking recipe-related educational content through digital platforms to keep their consumers engaged in learning newer cooking recipes and increase ability to cook faster. These companies' efforts are likely to influence people toward buying crockery products, thereby driving the market growth. For instance, in May 2021, SharkNinja Operating LLC, an innovator in small kitchen electrics, introduced a digital platform that houses hundreds of food cooking recipes and is available for the U.K., U.S., France, and German consumers. Besides, companies' regular provision of discounted items maintains worldwide products sales. 


Crockery Products Explosion Incidences to Limit pressure cooker Demand

Regular incidences of crockery products explosion due to companies' faulty product offerings mainly limit consumers in buying pressure cookers, thereby restraining the market growth. For instance, from March 2018 to April 2021, six U.S. consumers filed a lawsuit against Instant Brands Inc., a U.S. leading multi-purpose crockery items maker, due to the 'Instant Pot' cookers' explosion incidences among them. Besides, the higher cost of the multi-purpose crockery items is limiting its demand among the middle & lower-income groups. Also, intense competition from local industry players with their competitive pricing is hampering the market growth.

By capacity, the global market is segregated into 1-2 liters, 2-5 liters, 5-8 liters, and above 8 liters.
