In 2020, China’s home appliance industry will face unprecedented challenges affected by the epidemic. In the past decade, the home appliance industry has experienced a slowdown in growth and a shift from the incremental market to the stock market. The arrival of the epidemic has made the household appliance industry almost stagnant – but an unprecedented period of transformation has also followed.
With the recovery of China’s economy, the changes of home appliance industry in 2021 will be more severe. The superposition of consumer market and technological revolution will have a more profound impact on the development of the industry. The home appliance industry is extending from product innovation to full scene innovation, thus driving the whole ecological innovation and inclusive development. In the face of new changes, new uncertainties, standing in the fog, where will we go?

Macro market environment and consumer trends
According to the prediction of global GDP growth by international fund organization, developing countries are important engines of world economic growth. Compared with the United States and major global economies, China’s consumer confidence index is higher, and the rebound after the epidemic is also greater. Thanks to the effective means of epidemic prevention, the recovery level of China’s GDP is obviously better than expected.
During the epidemic period, residents’ consumption concentrated on the direction of food and housing, and the consumption expenditure of other categories decreased to varying degrees. According to the National Bureau of statistics, the growth rate of per capita consumption in the first three quarters of 2020 is – 6.6%. With the economic growth getting better, consumers’ worries about inflation, domestic economic depression and unemployment have decreased significantly. Although the attention has dropped, the epidemic situation is still one of the most concerned problems.
The epidemic situation stimulates consumers’ demand for cooking at home. Consumers in online cities pay more attention to health and hygiene, while consumers in offline cities pay more attention to the cost performance of home cooking. Due to the development of the epidemic situation, live shopping has become a new favorite of the brand; from the audience of live shopping, the post-90s are the main force; mainstream e-commerce and short video platform are the main channels for consumers to contact.
From the perspective of GfK’s China retail monitoring data, the online sales volume of China’s consumer electronic products market increased by 16% from January to October 2020. In the offline retail market, except for steamers and dishwashers, other products showed a downward trend. The channel differentiation of small household appliance industry is obvious, and it is further inclined to online channel. The market scale of all levels of offline cities has shrunk, and the performance of second and third tier cities is slightly better.

The performance of enamel soup milk pot was better than that of the whole soup milk pot on a year-on-year basis, and the proportion increased significantly after the epidemic.
