Executive Summary

Feb 2019
Stagnation for UK consumer appliances

The consumer appliances market in the UK remained under pressure in 2018, stagnating somewhat. Political uncertainty and economic nervousness around Brexit are putting pressure on the market.

Demand for new innovative products bolsters unit prices

Both small and major appliances are experiencing a strong phase of innovation. New and premium technology is becoming mainstream and public interest in these products is increasing.

Unlike small appliances, major appliances remains consolidated

The competitive landscape in major appliances remains extremely fragmented. The leading players are all companies focused on small appliances as the latter accounts for the vast majority of the UK consumer appliances market.

Electronics and appliance specialist retailers retain the lead despite losing share

In 2018, electronics and appliance specialist retailers continued to lead sales of consumer appliances in the UK. However, this channel’s volume share is progressively declining, due to an intensification of the competition from other distribution channels.

Slow forecast period growth expected due to political and economic uncertainty

Consumer appliances is set to record sluggish growth over the forecast period, being likely to stagnate further. This expected performance will be influenced by the UK’s decision to leave the European Union and its numerous consequences.
