Appliance Shipments Falter in First Half of 2022

by Emily Blackburn
Appliance Shipments for the first half of 2021 showed big gains.

With supply chain delays, inflation and other market headwinds taking their toll, domestic shipments of major home appliances declined for the second consecutive quarter in 2022, dipping in the second quarter and falling below shipments during the same six-month period a year ago, the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers reported.

According to the Washington, DC-based AHAM, major appliance shipments totaled 43.68 million units during the first six months of 2022, down 4.9 percent from the 45.95 million units that shipped during the first half of 2021.

First-half declines were posted in all key product categories, including cooking (-4.1 percent), home laundry equipment (-8.7 percent), food preservation (-1.2 percent), and kitchen cleanup (-2.0 percent), AHAM reported.
