Overview
Total 2010 shipments for the core five appliances (refrigerators, ranges, washers, dryers, and dishwashers) were up 7% from 2009. The total shipments for the core eight appliances – adding microwaves, cooktops, and freezers – increased 5.3% to 6.9 million units from 2009's 6.6 million units.

Due to Canada's proximity to the U.S. and the social and cultural similarities, the appliance industry has become increasingly homogenous across the border. These markets are very similar in terms of consumer needs, usage habits and expectations, safety standards, and voluntary energy efficiency standards. This results in the appliance industry creating standardized products for both Canada and the U.S. markets, differentiated only by labeling and documentation.

The Canadian arm of Whirlpool Corp., Whirlpool Canada LP, is one of the country's leading marketers and suppliers of home appliances, delivering more than $1 billion in annual revenue. The company features a robust portfolio of brands that appeal to a wide range of consumers, including Whirlpool, Maytag, KitchenAid, JennAir, Amana, Inglis, Estate, and Roper.

Whirlpool Canada's strategy is to differentiate it's family of brands through innovation. Each brand has a distinctive identity, while still offering a diverse portfolio of inventive products that will meet the needs of all consumers.
