The Indian Consumer appliances market has witnessed robust growth trends in the past 5 years and is expected to foresee double digit growth reinforced by surging rural consumption, reducing replacement cycles, increasing penetration of lifestyle appliances, and availability of multiple brands at various price points. Rapidly shrinking replacement cycles for consumer durables sustain demand in urban India while existing low penetration rates and increasing usage of consumer durables have catapulted rural India to a high demand (30% annual growth) generating segment. Also, the income level disparities compel alignment of marketing tactics for desired customer segments. High Income groups opt for advanced features, whereas, Middle and Low Income groups are price sensitive.
