The tableware market grew by a steady 1.4% in 2016. The market is robust due to the essential nature of the items and is largely replacement driven. However, the tableware market is still supported by consumer confidence and a buoyant housing market. While the housing market has been thriving over recent years, 2017 could well be different, with consumers buying fewer tableware items, particularly high-value sets, in 2017.

- UK consumers are more likely to purchase a ’drinking’ item than any other tableware category, with 50.4% of people purchasing from this category in 2016, followed by 27.3% buying crockery. Only 14.6% of people say they have bought a set in the last year, reflecting the higher price nature of this category.
- Dining occasions are becoming more casual; almost double the percentage of consumers stated they had people round for a casual dinner (40.3%) than had held a formal dinner party at home (20.6%) in the past six months.
- Price is the number one consideration when buying tableware (37.1% of consumers). Design (21.6%) and quality at (19.2%) were also important. This strong differential between consumers responding to price and all other factors is a clear signal to retailers that they must be price competitive.
