Manufacturers of home appliances are producing innovative, connected and smart products that give time and value back to their users.
What is more, these products provide substantial benefits to society as a whole: they help consumers to actively conserve energy, to integrate the use of renewable energy sources, to pave the way for faster and more accurate appliance repairs, and to reduce waste and unnecessary replacements of appliances – contributing to a new, circular society.
A strong home appliance industry in Europe is crucial for a healthy European market, sustainable economic growth, global competitiveness and a firm positioning in the digital age.
Our industry thrives in a system based on free and fair trade, both among the EU’s Member States and with third countries.
