The Canadian major appliance industry declined 4.9% compared to 2008, according to a new report from Canadian Appliance Manufacturers Association, but showed a significant rebound in the first quarter of 2010.

CAMA, an Electro-Federation Canada (EFC) Council, said the 2009 level of decline was close to that reported in 2006, and noted that the industry showed growth in Energy Star-rated appliance shipments. Energy Star refrigerator shipments grew 1.0%, clothes washers grew 7.8%, and dishwashers grew 10.8%.

CAMA said that, based on shipments of the five major appliance lines, the industry experienced an increase of 22.7% in the first quarter of 2010 compared to the first quarter of 2009. Drivers of this recovery, CAMA said, include an increase in consumer confidence, a slow-but-steady decline in unemployment, and outstanding growth rates in Canada's housing market.

"CAMA member companies continue to empower Canadians to conserve and save on energy costs with Energy Star appliances," says Warrington Ellacott, Chair, CAMA Executive Committee; and Senior Manager, Government Relations, North America Region, Whirlpool Canada LP. "The future of SMART appliances and advanced sustainability programs for the enhancement of existing recycling efforts, are key areas of focus. 2010 promises to be a very exciting and sustainable year for Major Appliances in Canada."
