KEY DATA FINDINGS
2020 IMPACT
COVID-19 drives sales decline, as worried consumers postpone non-essential purchases
Heightened price sensitivity among buyers of automatic washing machines and increased competition in automatic washer dryers lead to decrease in unit price

RECOVERY AND OPPORTUNITIES
Rebound in retail volume sales will be driven by recovery in consumer confidence and revival in construction
With more Austrians viewing dishwashers as a necessity, their penetration rate will continue to rise
