For Galleys, High-End Now Includes Serviceability
All around the world, the global galley equipment market is seeing a steady rise in demand, with over 5% growth projected for the next few years. In today’s globalized world people are traveling more than ever before, and new areas, such as south-east Asia and the Asian Pacific region, are expecting a massive boost in both marine and air travel in the coming years. Both travel methods require high end galley equipment, although certain product features are becoming more desirable and redefining what ‘top-of-the-line’ means in this sector. Specifically, the market is seeing demand for galley products that are easily serviceable and modular in design.
Galley design is separated into the aviation and marine categories. Marine galleys in particular must be highly functional and modular, since the galley is often a multipurpose space, and space is something most vessels have in short supply. There is also an increased demand for products that are less toxic and more environmentally friendly. With these stringent demands on design, it makes sense then that many vessels are installing custom fitted products to suit their individual needs.
