During the first half of 2020, the UK housing market was hit by a number of major restrictions during lockdown and strict social distancing. The construction industry was put on pause during this period, and many people delayed their house moving plans.
Besides seeing some negative impacts from the disrupted property and construction industries, especially in the first half of 2020, dishwashers was also one of the major appliances categories most affected by pandemic-related supply chain issues. Many large companies have faced problems with supplies due to COVID-19 restrictions in factories, disrupted logistics or shortages of components and raw materials.
Dishwashers as a category still offers considerable potential for growth in the UK, as even though adoption has been accelerating in recent years, many households still do not own such an appliance. Working from home and the nationwide lockdown have significantly changed consumers’ behaviour and offered another window of opportunity for the wider adoption of dishwashers in the UK.
The penetration rate of dishwashers in the UK is quite low compared with other Western European countries, which offers a lot of potential for growth moving forward. It is likely that the continuous wider adoption of dishwashers will be seen, which will lead to growth in the forecast period.
Connected dishwashers are still not very common in British households, and the proportion of connected dishwashers of overall volume sales versus non-connected lags behind other major appliances. Consumers generally have concerns about personal privacy, and the added cost of such products is also one of the most common barriers.
Sustainability continues to be increasingly important to UK consumers and is also likely to remain at the forefront of manufacturers’ strategies over the forecast period. In the case of dishwashers, water and energy consumption in particular have been at the core of innovation and are likely to become even more important to consumers as they have spent more time at home during home seclusion and seen rising utility bills.

A dishwasher is a device for cleaning crockery and cutlery. Freestanding models are commonly available in full-size, slimline and compact variants. Built-in machines can be fully integrated (completely hidden by a door front and have their controls at the top of the dishwasher door on the inside), semi-integrated which are covered by a matching kitchen door up to the height drawer, which are usually built in at chest height to make loading easier.See All of Our Definitions
