The key markets include room air-conditioners, refrigerators, washing machines, and microwave ovens. Given China's importance in the home appliance market from a production and shipments point of view, we felt the need to provide more frequent reporting to aid business and strategic planning.
These monthly inputs get further validated before being finalized for input into the China White Goods Market Tracker – quarterly deliverables, which provide more data and insights on the market including domestic and export sales, average selling prices (ASPs) and revenue forecasts.
