Most of us are so used to having consumer goods and home appliances surrounding us from a young age that we fail to appreciate how easy our lives are because of these appliances. According to the Business Research Company, the total global home appliances industry size is just over half a trillion dollars right now and is expected to reach close to $700 billion by 2026, growing at a compound annual growth rate of 6.7%.

Demand for home appliances is continuing to increase as people realize how beneficial these are. There is a lot of competition in the industry so prices aren’t very high and the biggest home appliance companies in the world continue to innovate and add new technology to products to make them even more appealing to consumers. Products such as barbeques and grills are seeing an increase in demand as the pandemic restrictions are eased and the world attempts to return to normalcy. The European barbeque market alone is expected to increase by $6 million by 2026. Another reason for the increase in demand for barbeque grills is an increase in camping.

The biggest home appliance companies in the world are often household names, namely because they are present in most households. These companies can be thanked for making our lives significantly easier in affordable prices. To rank these companies, we considered their market caps, revenue for the trailing twelve months, profits from operations for trailing twelve months and assets, assigning 30% weightage to the first three criteria and 10% to the latter. For major companies such as Bosch and Samsung which have several different sources of revenues, we only considered revenue and profit from their consumer products division. All data has been taken from Yahoo Finance and where data was in foreign currencies, it has been converted to USD.
