The small-appliance business has changed at a remarkably fast pace in recent years. From the resurgence of multi-cookers to the explosion of robotic vacuums, the American home is full of machines our grandparents wouldn’t recognize. Making sense of this transformation can be daunting. That’s where we come in. To monitor what’s happening in the appliance market, we collect point-of-sale information from all major retailers, conduct more than 12 million consumer surveys each year, and collect receipt data directly from consumers to understand their shifts over time. This information, combined with our analysts’ industry expertise and prescriptive analytics, provides a comprehensive view of what’s selling and where in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico—so you can achieve data-driven growth.
"Investing in innovations that solve consumer needs will be critical to our continued growth. Growing categories that demonstrate innovations that solve consumer pain and frustration, like multi-cookers, toaster ovens, egg makers, espresso makers, and the others, will continue to thrive through challenging economic times."
