Rousseau, N. and Scott, N. (2022). Observations and statistics regarding MECS target markets (Africa and Developing Asia) for Electric Cooking Devices. MECS programme working paper.
The Modern Energy Cooking Services Programme aims to facilitate the transition of as many people as possible in low and middle income countries from cooking with biomass to cooking with “modern energy”. This includes cooking with electricity. This report is part of our work to facilitate cooking device companies understanding of these markets, with the aim of supporting them in bringing new or better products to these markets.
This working paper presents evidence to answer the following market research questions:
- What is the potential market size for electric cooking devices in each country?
- What is the nature and volume of electric cooking devices currently entering the markets?
- What is the range and price of electric cooking devices currently available in the markets?
The report also summarises and refers the reader to other published material regarding the markets for electric cooking devices, aiming to provide a one-stop-shop for companies looking to access the MECS findings portfolio.
