U.S. major appliance manufacturers anticipate sales momentum to return in 2008, according to the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM).

According to the latest Trends and Forecasts report compiled by AHAM, total projected sales in 2008 will exceed the 78.9 million units expected to ship in 2007. All product categories are expected to outperform 2007 shipments.

In home laundry, 2008 sales are projected to reach 17.4 million units, a gain over the 17 million units to be shipped in 2007, and behind the 17.5 million washers and dryers shipped in 2006. In home comfort, shipments will likely fall to 11.3 million this year, and are expected to increase back to 11.4 million in 2008.

Cooking appliances had a record year in 2005, when factory shipments were 23.8 million units. This year's outlook calls for shipments of 22.7 million ovens and ranges, and 2008 projections are for sales of 23.2 million units.

Food preservation is poised for steady gains from 2006 forward. Unit shipments fell to 13.2 million in 2006, but are expected to reach just less than 13.8 million this year and to grow by an additional 44,000 units in 2008.
