individuals are moving away from cassava and tubers
to rice with rising income.”

intervention from the cook. These electronic appliances come in range of capacities and prices as well as
various features for cooking rice. Electric Rice Cooker Market is to witness a significant growth over the

Tanzania and Nigeria as individuals are moving away from cassava and tubers to rice with rising income.

stovetop. It helps in removing guesswork associated with cooking rice and incorporates cooking technologies
that include weight with moisture content to cook good rice. It cooks rice without the fear of sticking or

However, declining rice consumption in a majority of Asian countries with rising income as people are
diversifying their diet is to hamper the market growth over the forecast period. Moreover, rice cooker
consumes a lot a space in a kitchen for just one task. People with small kitchen do not prefer rice cookers
generally. Large cookers cook single servings of rice less well than they do for large batches. Cleaning rice
cooker is a difficult task. These things about a rice cooker can pose challenge to this market. Furthermore,
providing more features to a rice cooker that can cook other things well along with rice is provides
opportunity to this market.
The market can be segmented on the basis of capacity, bowl quality, cooking logic and heating method.
Capacity indicates the volume of rice that can be cooked in one cycle. Common sizes of rice cook er include
5.5 cups and 10 cups. Bowl quality includes aluminum and stainless steel bowl. Bowls of entry -level models
are made up of aluminum. Aluminum heats quickly and unevenly. Stainless steel bowls are available in higher
end models. Stainless steel provides a more even heat. Also, nearly all bowls have non-stick coating of
varying quality. Cooking logic depends on the model of rice cookers. Higher end electric rice cookers have
additional function other than cooking simple rice. These models presets for multiple varieties of rice,
schedules cooking, have keep warm functionality and digital displays. On the basis of heating method, the
rice cookers use simple-coiled electric heating and induction heating. Most rice cooker manufacturers use
simple coiled electric heating element that leaves rice overcooked or burnt. Higher end manufacturers use
induction heating that heats much more evenly and is far less likely to burn rice.
The Asia-Pacific region especially China dominates the market currently owing to the largest consumption of
rice in the region. However, this trend is likely to decline owing to the significant declining level of rice
consumption in the last four decades by most of the Asian countries such as Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong
and Taiwan. In other developing nations including Indonesia, Vietnam and India per capita consumption has
also started to decline but at a slower pace. The Middle-Eastern region is anticipated to dominate the market
on account of rice consumption almost doubling in the recent years along with their disposable income.
Key players in this market are Toshiba Corporation, TTK Prestige Limited, Panasonic Inc., Bajaj Electricals Ltd.,
Pigeon Corporation, Zojirushi America Corporation, Black+Decker Inc., Cusinart, Tiger Corporation, Sunbeam
Products Inc. and Aroma Housewares Company. These companies are introducing new products for
increasing their market share.
