2014-02-20 13:19:02 - Food Preparation Appliances in Germany - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
The four leading companies in the Germany food preparation appliances market, BSH Bosch & Siemens HausgerÃ¤te GmbH, Braun GmbH, SEB Deutschland GmbH and Severin ElektrogerÃ¤te GmbH, combined accounted for 53% of total volume sales in food preparation appliances during 2012. BSH Bosch & Siemens HausgerÃ¤te GmbH led the category in 2012 with a 21% volume share, followed by Braun GmbH with 12%. The leading position of each of these companies can be attributed to their strong positions in hand blenders, the largest category in food preparation appliances in Germany.
Design features are playing an increasingly significant role in food preparation appliances in Germany as some of the US patents applied to the hand mixers of the leading multinational manufacturers previously did
not apply to Germany. Although the current value growth recorded in food preparation appliances in 2012 was one percentage point lower than the growth recorded in the category during 2012, it was still relatively high in light of the economic instability in Germany during 2012. According to industry experts, the relatively high value growth recorded in the category during 2012 reflected the ongoing demand for premium products among German consumers, many of whom continue to look for value-added designs when shopping for food preparation appliances.
The importance of multifunctional products is set to continue increasing in food preparation appliances in Germany during the forecast period. This is not, however, likely to benefit the majority of food preparation appliances categories, including citrus pressers and grinders and choppers, as the majority of products in these categories have single functions. This is set to explain the below-average performance anticipated in food preparation appliances, with volume declines and static constant value growth expected over the forecast period. The categoryâs leading manufacturers are expected to find better prospects for growth by launching higher-priced multifunctional food preparation appliances and this is likely to result in them targeting their efforts at stimulating demand towards high-income consumers.
