Drivers & Restraints:

Rising Government Initiatives to Provide Environmental Sustainability will Aid Growth


The governments of various countries across the world are implementing new policies to lower the energy consumption of home appliances. These policies are meant to support the adoption and manufacturing of energy-efficient appliances, as well as provide environmental sustainability. Additionally, they are taking various initiatives to upsurge and promote the capability and manufacturing of electronic products.

‘Make in India’ is one such campaign that is likely to propel the supply of home appliances in India. Apart from that, many incentive schemes, such as vouchers, discounts, and coupons are being persistently made available by these campaigns. These are also attracting consumers towards buying refrigerators. However, lack of repairing services for these products may hamper the refrigerator market growth in the coming years.
