The global small domestic appliances market size was valued at USD 185.49 billion in 2022. The market share is projected to grow from USD 193.83 billion in 2023 to USD 271.23 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.92% during the forecast period.

Small home appliances are extensively used in houses, with which consumers can more effectively perform indoor activities cooking, cleaning, and personal grooming. These devices greatly help save the time and effort required for activities. Small appliances are available in different categories, such as manual, semi-automatic, and automatic, and are sold in supermarkets, hypermarkets, electronic specialty stores, and other online platforms. The increasing industrialization in several developing countries like India, South Korea, Brazil, UAE, and others is resulting in an increase in the number of households, amplifying the demand for household appliances. Moreover, key market players continuously invest in R&D activities to innovate new and attractive products, thus, fostering the market size.


Disturbances In The Supply Chains  During COVID-19 Hampered Market Growth

The COVID-19 crisis seriously impacted the overall product demand for small electronic appliances. The prevalence of various lockdowns around the world has, in turn, resulted in the closure of the production plants of appliances in all the regions, thus, creating an imbalance between the supply and demand of the products. The labour shortages in developing countries such as India, Saudi Arabia, Argentina, Bangladesh, Vietnam, and others reduced the production volume of the manufacturing units, thus hindering the market growth of small household devices. In addition, the closure of speciality stores, mega shops, and other electronic outlets owing to the multiple shutdowns in almost all countries has further hampered the market growth during 2020.

On the contrary, the COVID-19 pandemic has also generated significant business prospects for domestic players to gain the advantage of supply chain disruptions at the international level. Brands retrieval approaches, product diversification, and competitive pricing strategies have further provided an opportunity for the local manufacturers of the appliance market. However, while offline channels have been highly affected, online channels saw a demand boom during the pandemic.

Inclination of Consumers towards Smart and Intelligent Home Appliance Products Influence Consumption Trends

The rising demand for home technology amongst consumers for the Internet of Things (IoT) and smart home technology is one of the key trends that have emerged recently. Smart home appliances are devices connected to the Internet or Bluetooth and controlled or monitored by remote commands from a smartphone, tablet, or other devices. Furthermore, rapid technological development and the modern lifestyle of individuals are expected to drive the adoption of smart home appliances.

Tech-savvy consumers know the latest technology and are willing to invest in connected home solutions to improve their lives and reduce stress. Additionally, manufacturers of smart home appliances are launching products, including smart water purifiers, water heaters, and smart vacuum cleaners, to meet the growing consumer demand for automated devices. Smart home devices also offer security and health support to consumers. For instance, products such as water purifiers provide real-time TDS monitoring or display the status of filters and RO membranes in real-time, and products such as IoT-enabled air coolers and air purifiers are fitted with pollutant tracking capabilities to make indoor air cleaner to breathe healthier.


Rapid Urbanization in Developing Regions to Favor Market Growth

Rapid urbanization in emerging nations such as China, India, Japan, France, Brazil, and other countries is expected to boost the demand for domestic appliances. Most developing countries are experiencing explosive population growth along with infrastructural development supported by the government. Hence, increasing construction of households and commercial places is projected to drive the market's growth. According to the data of the World Bank in 2019, 56% of the world's population was dwelling in urban areas in 2019 and it is expected to reach 68% by 2050, around two-thirds of the world population.

Shift in Consumer Demand towards Home Refurbishments to Augment Market Size

The increasing prevalence of home remodelling and renovation among consumers and increasing demand for premium and branded home appliance products are anticipated to drive the demand for small domestic appliance products. Furthermore, consumers' shift towards sustainable appliances that would be energy-efficient and less environmentally harmful is expected to propel market growth.


High Frequency of Repair & Maintenance of Small Household Appliances to Hamper Sales of the Product

Small household appliances require high repair and maintenance as they are prone to regular use, mainly in the household sector. Small home appliances such as microwaves, iron, dishwasher, coffee makers, juicers, and others do not have a longer life span, which as a result, calls for frequent repairing activities for those products. This, in turn, is further expected to restrain the market growth of small domestic devices.
