Industry Information

The domestic appliance industry is large and dynamic with several appliances present in almost every home in the country. It is also international, with some companies siting their research and development arms in the UK, others marketing or manufacturing here and some partnering with distributors to provide their imported products to the end user.

The UK electrical appliance industry (large & small appliances) was estimated to have revenues of over £8.0bn in 2020 in the UK alone. Over 15 million large domestic appliances and 65 million small domestic appliances have been sold in the UK over the past 12 months.

The industry prioritises safety and AMDEA’s Register my Appliance initiative aims to encourage registration, improving ownership traceability data for the estimated 120 million large appliances in UK homes, helping to ensure that they can be located in the very rare event of a safety intervention or recall.
