India Home Appliances Market Analysis

Indian Home Appliances Market has generated USD 75 Billion in the current year and is poised to achieve a CAGR of 5.5% for the forecast period.

The home appliance industry is one of the fastest expanding in the Indian market. Home appliances in India have been expanding steadily, driven by both large and small appliances. In 2022, most household appliance categories had growth in both retail volume and current value. The industry has a sizable untapped market for appliances such as air conditioners (AC), washing machines, and refrigerators.

The growing economy and changing lifestyles of Indian consumers have resulted in an increase in the number of working individuals, nuclear families, single-person homes, and job migration. As a result, these emerging homes have a growing need for accessibility and are looking for items that provide convenience while significantly reducing the time and effort spent on daily activities. The emphasis on energy-efficient products, rising digital penetration, and rising aspirations are the key growth factors for this market. India's policies have undergone a tremendous transformation, particularly those that deal with the commercial and regulatory environments.

The industry may experience significant legislative changes as a result of the appliances sector and the impending national policy for electronics (NPE). The growing urban middle class and aspirational demand from rural India, together with government changes such as GST, are causing the appliances industry to look forward to the next phase of exponential expansion. This increase in India's consumer market demand is mostly driven by rising disposable incomes in Indian households and easy credit availability, which results in increased spending power. Increased electrification of rural regions, as well as the growing influence of social media and the popularity of online purchases, are all anticipated to drive up demand.

Due to COVID-19, lockdowns and social distancing, measures affected retailers with physical stores more than online retailers, ultimately accelerating the shift from brick-and-mortar to online retailing. It effected the major suppliers for the raw materials (used to manufacture devices) as well as the finished products. The industry faced a reduction in production, disruption in supply, and price fluctuations. While this has vastly encourage local manufacturers to step up and address the growing demand, the scarcity of raw material was still a challenge to this industry.

The Refrigerators Segment Accounts for a Significant Market Share

Refrigerators are regarded as a safe, simple, and practical method of preserving food and food goods. Rising disposable income, the availability of smart and energy-efficient refrigerator units, and the expansion of nuclear families are all driving rising demand for refrigerators for domestic usage. Single-door refrigerators are the most common door type since they are inexpensive, simple to use, and may or may not have an inbuilt freezer.

A remarkable achievement for the Indian refrigerator market, which had a total market value of USD 4,602.6 Million in 2022, were the 13,804 thousand units of refrigerators sold in India. In the India Refrigerator Market, sales of refrigerators with capacities between 200 and 499 litres account for more than 63% of total sales revenue. Indian customers have adopted new technology more frequently as a result of their progress, including connected and intelligent refrigerators. As a result, producers are increasing the number of products they sell, including refrigerators with smart features like Wi-Fi connectivity, voice control, and temperature sensors. These features enhance user experience and persuade customers to switch to more contemporary devices. With manufacturers focusing on introducing new technologies, improving their product offerings, and increasing their presence in tier-2 cities, the market is expected to continue to grow at a steady pace in the forecasted period.
