The market study covers the present scenario and growth prospects of the global commercial soup warmer market for 2017-2021.

Technavio food and beverage analysts highlight the following three market drivers that are contributing to the growth of the global commercial soup warmer market:
- Improved sensors and controls
- Increase in number of food service establishments serving soup
- Increasing focus on keeping food at safe temperatures
Improved sensors and controls
The vendors of commercial soup warmers are providing equipment with various sensors and controls, which can ensure the consistency and quality of the food items served. For instance, CookTek offers induction soup warmers with spring-loaded sealed temperature sensors, which are in direct contact with the soup insets. These sensors provide an accurate temperature control when the soup inset is nearly empty, which minimizes the burning of food.
In addition to this, the soup warmers are also provided with sensors that can measure the difference in food temperatures and trigger the “stir” indicator, which informs the operators to stir the food item. For instance, The Vollrath Company provides induction re-thermalizers with sensors that give instruction to the operator to stir the liquid. The increase in demand for this equipment will directly propel market growth during the forecast period.
Increase in number of food service establishments serving soup
“The continuous growth of food service establishments around the world that are serving various kinds of soups in their menu is directly influencing the sale of new units of commercial soup warmers,” says Manu.
Various restaurants, cafés, and hotels are looking to expand their presence around the world, especially in developing economies. For instance, in 2016, Au Bon Pain, which offers numerous types of soups in their menu offerings opened 14 new restaurants in India. The company has plans to expand extensively by adding more than 300 new restaurants in India during the forecast period.
Increasing focus on keeping food at safe temperatures
Food service establishments around the world are focusing more on providing food items that are safe to serve to the consumers by warming food items at the optimum temperature. Therefore, the establishments that serve soups in their menu offerings are also looking to procure soup warmers that can keep the soup temperature above the HACCP danger zone. The Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) danger zone is the temperature range between 41°F and 135°F. For instance, Atosa Catering Equipment provides soup warmer model AT51388, which has a temperature control between the range of 105°F and 195°F. Similarly, Admiral Craft Equipment provides the soup warmer model SK-500W, with warming temperature range between 80°F and 200°F.
