China largest consumer market for electronic household appliances4. February 2020
The sales market for household appliances has experienced steady growth in recent years and, according to experts, the trend is expected to continue in the next decade. In global terms, China is the largest consumer market for household appliances. Rising incomes, an up-and-coming middle class and the desire for a comfortable and Western-oriented lifestyle are the reasons for this positive development. High demand for household appliances is also expected for markets outside China, Southeast Asia and India.
Within the household appliance industry, there is a shift from traditional devices to devices with additional functions such as touchscreens, connection to the Internet and smartphones, and automatic data collection. This transition is driving many household appliance manufacturers to new developments and to gain market share. Smart Homes and IoT also offer increasing revenue opportunities for manufacturers.
The global market for household appliances was estimated at $615 billion in 2017 and is expected to reach $850 billion by 2025, an annual growth rate of 4.1 percent. For the Chinese market, the China Quality Certification Centre (CQC) regularly publishes new announcements on its official website about a wide range of products that are either subject to voluntary CQC certification or CCC obligation. As early as June 2014, the Certification and Accreditation Administration of the People’s Republic of China (CNCA) announced an implementing regulation for household and similar electronic appliances for household use. This stipulates that household appliances must comply with GB standards and must be CCC-certified. We advise you on the general provisions of a China Compulsory Certification (CCC), the detailed procedure and the expected costs.
