Appliance Retailers

U.S. appliance store sales gains have been sluggish over the current recovery period despite rising demand for household appliances. This reflects increased competition from home centers and other big boxes. Home centers are now the leading retailer of major household appliances. Home centers became aggressive sellers of major household appliances as the home improvement market began to recover from the recession.

These and other trends are uncovered in this up-to-date Catalina First Look on Appliance Retailers. This First Look also provides data on consumer purchases and retail sales of kitchen and laundry appliances, television and related video equipment, audio equipment, HVAC equipment, and other appliance lines. In addition, competition from department stores, warehouse clubs and supercenters, home centers and other big boxes, and internet retailers and home shopping networks is tracked. Data is compiled and analyzed from 1997 to the current year and the Executive Summary provides a five year forecast.
