The global kitchen knife market is steadily increasing, with significant gains predicted in the coming years. Celebrity recommendations, social media, and the increasing trend of home cooking are significantly playing a role in this growth, says one producer of knives.
Jun 20, 2019 /prREACH/ -- A recent study by Market Insight Report shows that the Global Commercial Kitchen Knives market size will increase to $2080 million by 2025, from $1400 million in 2018, at a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period. Contributing to this growth in the knife kitchen market is a combination of celebrity culinary influencers, the use of social media, and the home cooking trend.
Celebrity recommendations are adding significantly to consumers’ perspective on the need for the right tools to use in the kitchen, says KUMA, a producer of kitchen knives. Celebrity chefs were recently asked to name the one kitchen item they cannot live without on the Today show. Adam Richman, renowned host of eating challenge program Man v. Food, confirmed that, without a solid chef knife kitchen enthusiasts would be amiss.
According to Today, Richman states, “Sure, I have a lot of knives that I use for a specific purpose (boning, carving, and I have a really bomb santoku I use for chopping), but if I had to pick just one, it would be a great, quality chef’s knife.”
KUMA, producer of premium kitchen multipurpose knives and a Damascus chef knife, has noted the upwards trend in the kitchen knives market in recent years. Its products on Amazon are increasing in popularity, with one receiving hundreds of positive reviews from customers.
A spokesperson for KUMA says, “With more people cooking at home, it’s been a dramatic upswing in sales. Along with people taking photos of their culinary creations and sharing recipes online, it’s been quite the boom. Younger people are getting into learning how to cook, and it’s been really encouraging to see. When you see a celebrity or popular chef on TV talking about these things, it resonates. You start thinking about the kitchen essentials you’d like to have in order to create these delicious dishes seen on social media and TV!”
As a producer of cost-effective kitchen knives, KUMA has helped many get started cooking in the kitchen. Kitchen knives, particularly a high quality chef knife, are widely seen as an investment, and KUMA knives offer a long-lasting alternative to expensive ones that seem unattainable in price to beginner cooks in particular, says the brand.
