Refrigerators and Freezers

U.S. sales of household refrigerators and freezers have rebounded along with the surge in new home building. Demand also benefited from the upturn in existing home sales which resulted in a rise of kitchen remodeling activity. Import shipments, however, leveled off in the fourth quarter of 2014.

These and other industry trends are uncovered in this up-to-date Catalina First Look on Refrigerators and Freezers. This First Look also provides data on product sales, price trends, exports and imports, factors driving demand, plant operating ratios and profitability, and the competitive environment. Data is compiled and analyzed from 1997 to the current year and the Executive Summary provides a five year forecast.
