Appliance Shipments Post Sharp Gain in First Half of 2021

WASHINGTON, DC — Reflecting growth in new construction and residential remodeling, domestic shipments of major home appliances continued their marked rebound from the impact of COVID-19 in the first half of 2021, the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers reported in July.

According to the Washington, DC-based AHAM, an April-to-June spike of 23.7% over the same quarter a year ago was largely responsible for an overall year-to-date gain of 26.6% in major appliance shipments compared to the same six-month period in 2019. First-half gains were posted in all key product categories, including food preservation (+31.6%), home laundry (+27.7%), cooking (+24.1%) and kitchen cleanup (+17.4%), the trade association noted.
