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

Reflecting growth in new construction and residential remodeling, domestic shipments of major home appliances continued their marked rebound from the impact of COVID-19 in the first half of 2021, the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers reported in July.

According to the Washington, D.C.-based AHAM, an April-to-June spike of 23.7 percent over the same quarter a year ago was largely responsible for an overall year-to-date gain of 26.6 percent in major appliance shipments compared to the same six-month period in 2019. First-half gains were posted in all key product categories, including food preservation (+31.6 percent), home laundry (+27.7 percent), cooking (+24.1 percent) and kitchen cleanup (+17.4 percent), the trade association noted.
