Seven Years Of Growth

Apparently continuing to sell more and more is a good thing, we've already pointed out many times that we don't think so but GfK say that we're in the seventh consecutive year of growing appliance sales.

GfK’s global director of major appliances has forecast that strong sales of major appliances will continue after recording seven consecutive years of growth.

GfK Global Director of Major Domestic Appliances (MDA), Natalia Andrievskaya, said that 2016 was a good year for the category with sales increasing by 1% in units and 11% in value.

“MDA remains a stable and healthy industry. GfK expectations for the future are also bright,” Andrievskaya said. GfK expects global sales to improve by between 2-4 per cent in units over the 2017 and 2018 calendar years. “There are some big global growth drivers like built-in appliances for example. By comparison the freestanding market is so mature that it is barely growing any more on a global scale.”

The top moving product categories showing year on year value growth according to GfK over the last 12 months are:

Hobs with integrated extraction hoods: 102% increase in value

Refrigeration with frost free and A++ efficiency: 34%

Extractor hoods: 22%

Washing machines over 8kg: 15%

Tumble dryers with heat pumps: 11%

“The biggest impact on the MDA market is still coming from high capacity washing machines and no frost refrigerators. Induction hobs continue to push cooking together with pyrolitic ovens as well as the new player – cooktops with integrated hoods with showed triple digit growth last year,” she said.

So, selling more stuff to buyers is good? Seems so according to some.

Way we see it, many are cheap, nasty and not lasting as long as they used to and often ought to.

Beko Fridge Freezer Fire

Reports of a fire caused faulty Beko fridge freezer which was subject to recall resulted in the death of a man in Manchester in August last year have come to light.

Beko Fridge Freezer FireJohn Wilson sadly died from injuries sustained jumping from his bedroom window as the terraced house was destroyed by fire.

Mr Wilson's daughter Danielle claimed Beko’s recall was inadequate, adding: “My dad would still be here if they had properly recalled all these machines.”

The Manchester Evening News said the inquest at Stockport Coroner’s Court heard an oxygen canister, used by Mr Wilson after a lung transplant, blew up after catching fire.

A spokesperson for Beko said that extensive efforts were made to recall the product, which was made between 2000 and 2006 and had a faulty defrost timer which could catch fire.

He said: “Our sympathies are with the relatives and friends of Mr Wilson and his family. We deeply regret any incident linked to one of our products.”

Whirlpool Buys Yummly

This is just weird, Whirlpool have apparently agree to buy the US digital recipe platform Yummly in what is widely regarded as a move to strengthen Whirlpool's digital offering on connected appliances.

Whirlpool Buys YummlyQuite how a digital business fits with a physical one like Whirlpool, we have no idea.

Whirlpool do however get access to more than 20 million users.

Brett Dibkey from Whirlpool said, “We are committed to introducing new products to market that remove complexity from the day-to-day lives of consumers. Increasingly, these products will be defined by both physical and digital experiences. Yummly brings an outstanding platform on which to begin building our digital product offering.”

The deal is expected to be completed in May this year and no details on how much Whirlpool paid for it have been released.
