Kitchen Towel Market Triggered by Launch of Improved Products
Posted: Jul 21, 2019
A kitchen towel is a multi-utility product that is used to wipe up spills; to dry hands and kitchen items; to clean off cutting boards; and to hold hot plates and dishes. It is usually made up of cotton and is soft and durable enough to absorb and withstand repeated uses and washings. There are different types of kitchen towels available in the market including chef towels (used for drying off herbs, cleaning off knives in between chopping, handling hot pots, pans, and dishes, etc.); dish towels (used to prevent water spots on utensils and speed up drying); and tea towels (used as decor to serve muffins and scones or to cover teapots). According to IMARC Group, the global kitchen towel market size reached US$ 4,730 Billion in 2018.
In recent years, manufacturers have been designing eco-friendly kitchen towels that can be washed, reused and disposed of easily without damaging the environment. In addition, these kitchen towels are hygienic to use and have high water soaking capacity with the capability to remove germs. Moreover, technological advancements have enabled the leading companies to manufacture kitchen towels using Through Air Dried (TAD) process which provides more absorbent and softer kitchen towels as compared to the conventional technology of Light Dry Crepe (LDC). As a result of these factors, the market is further projected to reach a value of US$ 6,300 Billion by 2024, registering a CAGR of 4.9% during 2019-2024.Cloth-based kitchen towels are gaining popularity across the globe
