Europe is home to major home appliance companies

Some of the largest and best-known home appliances manufacturers are headquartered in Europe, for example, the German household appliances companies BSH Group and Miele. Other major home appliance companies in Europe are SEB Group from France and the Swedish appliance manufacturer Electrolux. Many of these companies operate appliance manufacturing sites in Europe, with Germany leading the way. 21 of the more than 140 sites were located in the country. The broader home appliance industry employs more than 200 thousand people.

Major appliances lead market in value and volume
