Germany Consumer Appliances Market size, by product, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

The recent Covid-19 outbreak has severely impacted the growth of the consumer appliances industry in Germany. The pandemic disrupted production as well as sales of appliances through both online and offline channels due to social distancing and stay-home policies. Demand for new orders from retailers has come to a standstill as the major markets are under lockdown, which has drastically altered the supply chain in the market globally. 

The companies in Germany household appliances market manufacture both large and small appliances. The large appliances include products like stoves, ovens, and refrigerators, whereas the small appliances include humidifiers, toasters, juicers, and vacuum cleaners to name a few. The increase in sales of luxurious homes across Germany has led to a rise in the demand for high-quality premium kitchen and household appliances. According to Sotheby’s International Realty Survey, 2021, 63% of real estate players are expecting the prices of luxury homes to rise in the next three years and over 70% saw added demand for luxury homes in 2020.

Millennials are considered to be the most influential and educated consumer group. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, they have realized that having a home with more space, bigger rooms, greenery, kids’ playrooms, a dedicated office space, and numerous amenities is important. As a result, the real estate industry has been focusing on millennials’ home buying preferences to ensure the growth of the real estate market.

Increasing per capita income, growing affordability, space constraints, and the demand for convenience are driving the adoption of high-quality and premium products. Additionally, the rising number of dual-income families across the country is fostering the demand for various home appliances as people with dual incomes have higher disposable income as compared to most single-income families.

Moreover, the increasing growth of the country’s economy has led to rising disposable income, which is improving the purchasing power of consumers. The independent companies playing in the household appliances market generate their revenue based upon highly effective advertising strategies and streamlined operations. The already established distribution channels such as large retailers have an edge over the newcomers in the distribution network related to this market.

The big retailers can bargain with manufacturing companies for bulk purchases, offers and discounts, whereas the big household appliances manufacturing companies have advantages as far as the production, operation, marketing, and distribution of products/appliances is concerned. The major companies in the household appliances market are Whirlpool, BSH Bosch GmbH, Electrolux Group, GE appliances, Haier group, Samsung, Gorenje Group, Arcelik A.S., Panasonic Corporation, and LG Electronics. 

Product Insights

Household appliances held the largest revenue share of more than 70.0% in 2021. Consumer appliances frequently require a large amount of electricity in order to function and are assigned a specific place or location in the household. The most prominent products in the domestic household appliance industry are refrigerators, freezers, washing machines, air conditioners, and dryers to name a few. These products are also known as white goods. Major household appliances have high demand in the market. Now with the increasing demand for major appliances, there is a growing demand for smart appliances coming into the picture as well. 

Consumers have now started utilizing modern and technically advanced devices and appliances due to the associated convenience and time-saving. There is a steady growth predicted in this segment for Germany. The factors responsible for this growth could be due to the improving lifestyles of consumers, improvement in the purchasing power, and migration of the rural population to the urban areas. The demand for major household appliances is highly dependent on the income of the consumer, home renovation and remodeling, and replacement of an appliance due to its malfunction or failure. In the coming years, the market for major domestic household appliances is expected to escalate quickly. 

Distribution Channel Insights

The e-retailers segment held the largest revenue share of over 45.0% in 2021. In Germany, there is a greater degree of concentration as large retailers like Metro (Media Markt and Saturn) hold large market shares, thus acting as a greater deterrent to new entrants. E-commerce is booming in the German market with Amazon and Otto being the top e-retailers in the market space. E-retailers are followed by departmental stores, which is the second-highest growing distribution channel in Germany. The German population has demonstrated an inclination towards retail offers and discounts, along with a high number of secured e-payment options. Thus, the German e-retail and departmental stores are expected to witness high growth during the forecast years. 

Due to the Eurozone crisis, the European countries had been affected economically and commercially. The countries that were affected the most were Portugal and Greece, but now these are recovering. This impacted the overall European market and the European countries in many ways. Germany, on the other hand, due to its high percentage of exports in the foreign lands did not suffer that much, the demand for technologically advanced, smart appliances, and energy-efficient appliances is increasing day by day.
