The demand for such products has witnessed unprecedented growth in the last few years. Upgrading kitchen appliances has been a trend in the recent past, and therefore, has contributed to the market growth.

A ducted range hood not only removes contaminated air out of the home but also decreases the amount of humidity and heat that remains in the kitchen while it is running. A remote blower, typically located on the rooftop or exterior wall, pulls the air through the hood and ducting to exhaust it outdoors. Inline blowers are installed in the ductwork. Unlike a local blower, which is located in the body of the vent hood, remote and inline blowers are further away and will limit the level of sound from the fan. The Ceiling Mount Hood segment is likely to grow with the highest futuristic CAGR of 7.11%. The market is aided by rapid urbanization, along with the rising construction of luxury apartments, villas, and renovation of existing kitchens. This has fuelled the sales of premium-quality kitchen appliances within the country.
