Consumer electronics company LG Electronics India said it expects around 30 per cent growth in 2022 in its home appliances and air-conditioner business, on the back of strong demand and new product launches. The company unveiled a new lineup of home appliances on Thursday and said it is confident of retaining its market lead in categories such as refrigerator, washing machine, microwave oven and AC.
“In the previous calendar year, we have seen a growth of more than 20 per cent (for home appliances and AC), and we are expecting to grow more than 30 per cent this year with the new line of products, which we have introduced today,” Deepak Bansal, LG Electronics India VP-Home Appliances & Air-Conditioners, told PTI.
The home appliances and air conditioner segment is the mainstay of LG Electronics India business as it contributes around 70 per cent in terms of revenue, he said.
In 2021, the segment’s revenue was around Rs 15,000 crore, he added.
Talking about compressor-based cooling products such as refrigerator and air-conditioner, Bansal said LG Electronics India has witnessed an “unprecedented growth” in the early months of 2022 and expects to continue the pace in the coming months.
Compressor-based products contribute around 65 per cent of the revenue of the home appliances business of the company.
The company, which will be celebrating its 25th anniversary in India in May 2022, would continue to invest in its manufacturing operations at its existing plants at Noida and Pune.
“We are investing in the facilities to increase our capacities and with the new product launches, we are definitely going to expand further,” Bansal said.
