Francéclat, the professional and economic committee for goldsmiths, tableware, watches, jewelry, and jewelry, unveiled last May its report on the key figures for 2021 on the tableware industry. A look at the evolution of the sector and its economic values.
Despite numerous disruptions due to the health crisis or the rise in energy prices, the tableware sector has shown a beautiful resilience and a significant development compared to previous years.
The sector has identified four drivers for this development: the enthusiasm of the French for their interiors (+13% compared to 2020), an enthusiasm for products and the CSR dimension that accompanies them, a sustained demand from the hotel and restaurant industry and a growing footprint of luxury brands in the home.
Gwenaëlle L’Hénoret, vice president of marketing for Arc International EMEA, the global benchmark for tableware, commented on the data, saying: “The release from containment and the reopening of restaurants in May 2021 has had a very positive impact on the entire industry. All of a sudden, we were overwhelmed by a very large influx of orders from the restaurant sector, which we are still struggling to satisfy today” .
