Appliance sectors covered in this report are Major Appliances, Electric Housewares, Comfort Conditioning, Floor Care Appliances, and Commercial Appliances. A five-year market comparison for each category includes unit-shipment figures for 2008, projected unit shipments for 2009, and forecasted shipments for 2010 through 2012 – providing a three-year market forecast.
The report includes an overview of Energy Star, a U.S. program designed to help save money and protect the environment through energy-efficient products and practices. Energy-efficient options can save families about one-third on their energy bill with similar savings of greenhouse gas emissions.
According to Andrew Humphreys, Editor in Chief of Canon Data Products Group, “The appliance industry endured a tumultuous 2009 due to the negative effects of the global economic recession. Recovery and growth will occur during 2010, but the overall industry will need beyond this year to repair itself. An improving housing market is one of the critical factors necessary to drive the appliance industry forward again.”
