Beverage Dispenser Market – Overview
Beverage dispensers are the devices used to dispense a drink/ beverage into the glass or container. This device is used to dispense water, carbonated drinks, slush drinks, soft drinks, coffee, tea, etc. Beverage dispensers are automatic machines that run on battery and electricity; some machines are operated manually. These machines have separate drums for the beverages to avoid the mixing of the drinks. Beverage dispensers can be automatically set to dispense the exact quantity of drink to avoid spillage in the machines.
Increase in urban population has led to growth in the use of beverage dispensers. People carry small beverage dispensers with them while on vacation. Development and growth of urban areas has resulted in the opening of more bars, hotels, resturantants, fast food joints, pizzerias, snack shops, etc. People are now spending more on food and recreational activities due to increasing disposable income. Currently, some beverage dispensers come with self-clean technology in which the machine gets cleaned automatically after dispensing certain amount of drink or number of glasses. With development of technology and to decrease dependence, some automatic machines are installed in which people can instruct the machine to dispense the drink by themselves. These machine are durable and can be used for many years especially during festivals.
Beverage Dispenser Market – Drivers and Restraints
Specific features and advantages of beverage dispensers are projected to increase the demand for the product. Stainless steel containers are corrosion resistant which increases the durability of the product and decreases the repair and maintenance cost. Plastic containers in dispensers are easy to carry and lightweight. Some machines have refrigerators which keep the drink cold and fresh.
However, certain restraints and disadvantages of beverage dispensers can impact their demand. Beverage dispensing machines should always be kept clean to avoid dust and to protect them from disease breeding organisms. Ideally, the machine should have self-clean technology to avoid any contact with the germs and bacteria. Low quality plastic may be used by some manufacturers to decrease the cost of the beverage dispenser; however, these plastic dispensers can adversely affect the health of the people. Some dispensers may leave some of the drink (after dispensing) in the glass which can result in wastage of the beverage. Regular cleaning of the machine is vital though it may increase the operation cost. These factors are anticipated to decrease the demand for beverage dispensers during the forecast period.
