PROSPECTS
Microwaves on a downward spiral

Retail volume sales of microwaves continued to decline in 2018. Romanians are replacing microwaves either with ovens, but also small cooking appliances, which are associated with a healthier lifestyle.

Built-in microwaves drive growth

Freestanding microwaves account for the majority of retail volume sales, with small and easy-to-carry products being the norm. Nonetheless, built-in microwaves saw growth in both retail volume and value sales.

Modern retailing dominates distribution

Microwaves are mostly purchased from chained electronics and appliance specialist retailers. Major retailers like Altex and Flanco offer a wide range of microwaves (both built-in and freestanding) and are present in most cities.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE
Samsung is the top brand

Most purchased microwaves are offered by well-known international brands, which local consumers associate with quality and a tradition in consumer appliances. Samsung, the most popular brand, is widely available across most relevant retailers.

Brand owners continue to innovate

Product innovation is still a highly employed strategy by brand owners, especially with regard to built-in microwaves. Companies focus on launching products with a multitude of features to compare with ovens.
