The ceramic-like nature resins used in cookware are known as food grade ceramic coatings. Higher durability, scratch resistance, and easy clean, non-sticky properties distinguish food-grade ceramic coatings. The varying levels of temperature resistance are also a key distinguishing feature of food-grade ceramic coatings.
Food grade ceramic coatings are the materials that are applied to the substrate of various cooking appliance components and mechanical parts to improve wear and restore worn parts. Consumers are known to benefit from the addition of food-grade ceramic coatings because the coatings are known to improve the functional properties of the components and mechanical parts to which the coatings are applied.
Higher demand for food-grade ceramic coatings will be driven by increased efficiency, multi-functional properties, and cost savings.
Because of their unique properties, food grade ceramic coatings have become popular in the food processing industry. The baking industry is the most common end-user of food-grade ceramic coatings, as the coatings can withstand higher temperatures and offer significant cost savings. Increased demand for ceramic cookware that can be washed in a dishwasher, saving time, labour, and money, has resulted from an increase in the number of organised and unorganised foodservice outlets.
The majority of traditional cookware coatings are not dishwasher safe. In comparison to PTFE coatings, there has been a greater availability of various bright coloured food grade ceramic coatings for cookware. Over the forecast period, this factor will propel the growth of food-grade ceramic coatings.
The majority of organised food processing companies and major foodservice outlets are based in the west, particularly in North America and Europe. With a large share of the baking industry, Europe is expected to be a major centre for the consumption of food-grade ceramic coatings over the forecast period.
