China Washing Machine Market Analysis

The China Washing Machine Market size in terms of Greater Than-3.5 is expected to grow from USD 17.28 billion in 2024 to USD 20.39 billion by 2029, at a CAGR of greater than 3.5% during the forecast period (2024-2029).

China is the world’s largest washing machine market in terms of production, consumption, sales, and exports. In China, the washing machine has become one of the most important household equipment, and its commercial use in the hospitality industry, such as hotels, resorts, and other institutions for huge loads of commercial laundry, is also booming. The growth of the washing machine market in China is believed to be mainly driven by rapid urbanization and a rise in disposable income, as well as improvements in rural electrification. The subsidy program launched to promote the sale of large appliances in rural areas of China has created significant growth towards the penetration of large appliances. This has also supported the growth in replacement potential for home appliances in China.

China's demand for washing machines initially declined in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic; however, due to the Chinese government's improved prevention and control measures, the need for washing machines is now re-emerging. This surge in demand can be seen across the entire China laundry appliances market. In addition, offline channel sales have seen a decrease in the last few years, while online sales of washing machines in China have seen positive growth. As previously mentioned, this development can be attributed to the improved quality of life of Chinese consumers, which has led to an increase in their demand for washing and care equipment.

China’s Washing Machine Exports are Driving the Market

China is not only the world's largest washer manufacturer but also the world's largest washer exporter. China's society and economy have been altered by rapid advances in manufacturing capacity and expanding consumer consumption. Since the Chinese government has encouraged industry consolidation to control the industry and improve competitiveness in the global market, rapid consolidation between medium and big businesses is expected. Customers' willingness to pay a premium for high-quality goods will encourage local players to focus on manufacturing high-quality goods that can be sold at higher prices, resulting in larger operating margins. Many leading international washing machine manufacturers, such as LG, Samsung, and Panasonic, have also established their plants or manufacturing operations through their local partners in China. Some of the major importers of Chinese-made washing machines include Japan, the USA, the UK, Canada, Iran, Poland, and South Korea.

China is a major player in the drum washing machine industry. The top export destinations for Chinese drum washing machines are France, the UK, and the US, with Italy, Germany, and Spain being the other main destinations. China is a major exporter of drum washing machines, with France being the most prominent destination for Chinese exports. China's exports of these machines are expected to remain on a steady growth trajectory. This is due to the fact that China is one of the leading producers and exporters of home appliances in the world.
