A device that hangs above the stove or cooktop in the kitchen and has a mechanical fan is known as a kitchen hood, extractor hood, range hood, or exhaust hood. Grease, combustion by-products, fumes, smoke, heat, and steam are all removed from the air through filtering and air evacuation. To ensure that grease fire gases are adequately ventilated and that the fire is rapidly put out, exhaust hoods are frequently utilised in commercial kitchens in conjunction with fire suppression equipment. Additionally, commercial vent hoods can be paired with a fresh air blower that pulls in outside air and circulates it with the cooking gases before being taken out by the hood. Grease (the grease trap) and other particles are often removed by a filtering system in exhaust hoods. Many vent hoods exhaust air outside, but some also circulate air inside the kitchen. Filters can be used in a recirculating system to get rid of odours as well as grease. Cleaning up the dust and smells on the kitchen wall is a pain. So, a kitchen hood is now a necessary item for optimal kitchen ventilation. Cooking produces a lot of smoke, and the quantity of spices and oils used makes it sticky and oily. A kitchen chimney may help in this situation by acting as an appliance that collects smoke, clearing the kitchen of smoke, odour, dangerous gases, and oily smells. The kitchen should always be kept tidy. Manufacturers are focusing on developing innovative devices owing to consumer preference for smart features such as noise reduction, wireless connectivity, and the installation of temperature, optical, and infrared sensors in the products.
A kitchen hood is any kind of ventilation system designed for controlling and removing smoke, steam and grease or removing odour outside from the kitchen. The system also improves the air quality in the home and also plays a role in preserving the beauty and structure of the walls, backsplash and kitchen cabinets.
The wall-mounted hood has a ventilation system that is attached to the wall directly and exactly above the cooking area. The hood is also known as a chimney hood, because the structure used for ventilation is like a household chimney. The hood vents the smoke and odours outside the kitchen through an exterior wall behind the hood. The under-cabinet hoods are commonly seen in each and every kitchen, these are popular due their compact design and attractive structure. These are located directly above the cooktop and are installed underneath cabinets. The hoods can be ducted or ductless, for providing a flexible option for any type of kitchen.
According to the report published by Actual Market Research titled “United States Kitchen Hood Market Research Report, 2027”, the USA is expected to grow with more than 3.5% CAGR by the end of the forecasted period. It has been researched that ceiling-mounted kitchen hoods are commonly used in every household today. These are popular because they are available with both duct and ductless features. Therefore, the ceiling-mounted kitchen hoods are growing with the highest CAGR.
There has been little development in the kitchen hood market during the COVID-19 epidemic. The nation's trade has been impacted by travel restrictions. The imposed lockdown and travel restrictions have an impact on all markets, including the kitchen-hood sector. The country's sales of range hood appliances have been hampered by rising financial insecurity and a shift in consumer preferences. Construction and renovation activities ceased, resulting in no new demand for kitchen hoods on the market. However, now that the situation has been sifted out, the restart of various industries would create demand for these appliances. The smart kitchens developed by the construction companies to gain more customer attraction and gain strategic preference are expected to drive the demand further. On the other hand, the pandemic has increased people's awareness of cleanliness and health; for example, preparing meals may release smoke that can irritate people's respiratory systems, and smoke particles can attach to kitchen walls and cause dust to accumulate there. All these issues are avoided by a kitchen hood, which will drive the industry in the upcoming years.
