The global sous vide machine market is on course to post revenues of $1 billion (£770m) during the next five years, new research suggests.
With nearly 66% of market revenue predicted to come from North America and Europe, manufacturers are focused on innovative strategies and promotional measures to bolster the overall sous vide machine market growth.
According to research firm Arizton, the market is expected to post an absolute growth of 336% between 2020 and 2025.
Growing consciousness of health and food consumption among consumers is favourably impacting the type of appliances being used to prepare the food, the report said.
The commercial end-user segment is expected to offer $723m (£556m) incremental revenue for the market during the next five years.
Food prepared through sous vide retains all its nutritional value and offers enhanced consistency and precision.
Commenting for a special sous vide feature set to be published in the forthcoming edition of FEJ, Chris Holland, chef director at Sous Vide Tools, said the technique is now being adopted by all types of operators.
“The benefits and cost savings associated with sous vide cooking can be enjoyed by any size of operation. It should be considered by contract caterers and large volume operators looking to provide the very best results under challenging operational pressures to restaurants requiring consistency and flavour day in, day out.
“Smaller operators with limited kitchen staff can benefit from using sous vide as part of the food regeneration process which results in less waste and a better quality product even with limited resources.”
