Grills and smokers grew at the same pace as the overall market and comprised more than half of the year’s revenue, said the NPD Group.
“We are thrilled to recognize these companies that are leading the outdoor grill market through this exciting time for the industry and providing consumers with products that enhance their lives,” said James.
In addition to strong sales growth, the industry’s positive performance aligns with recent findings from the Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Association (HBPA), which noted an increase in U.S. household ownership of a grill or smoker over the past two years.
“Congratulations to all the winners, and the industry, on a successful year, and we wish you continued success in 2022,” said James.
