Executive Summary

Feb 2019
Consumer appliances records volume growth amidst a year of challenges

Major appliances managed only low volume growth in 2018. The main headwinds facing the category are price increases on both domestic and imported products due to the escalating trade disputes between the US and many of its partners, specifically China, and a slowdown in the housing market that began in the middle of the year.

US economic outlook clouds the outlook for growth

The overall health of the economy, and of the housing market in particular, is one of the primary drivers of consumer appliances, especially for major appliances. The US economy remained strong through 2018 and is estimated to finish the year with approximately 3% GDP growth.

Consumers prioritise fundamental technological improvements and multifunctional features for appliances

While smart technology and voice activation continued to steadily infiltrate consumer appliances, the most impactful product features in 2018 were those that allowed for more functions from each appliance and those that improved fundamental appliance performance. Within small cooking appliances, for example, consumers continued to gravitate towards light fryers and rice cookers.

Trade wars and tariffs impact the category

Trade, and the perceived disparities between the US and the rest of the world, has been a focus of the current administration in Washington. President Trump is intent on the US being “treated fairly” by her trading partners and his primary tool to enforce his definition of the term is the import tariff.

Slight growth expected over the forecast period

The forecast period is looking like a rocky time for major appliances. The category is expected to record a significant slowdown in performance in the early part of the forecast period, as the uncertainties regarding the economy, tariffs and the housing market take their toll on sales, with a minor rebound expected after 2020.
