From toasters and kettles to refrigerators and washing machines, the Domestic Appliance Repair and Maintenance industry caters to a highly fragmented and diverse range of products. The nature of contemporary consumerism - typified by rapid technological change, frequent upgrades and new product introductions - has rendered the role of repair services almost redundant. Pricing deflation for many household appliances, largely due to the strong Australian dollar reducing import costs, has also contributed to industry declines over the past five years.
Companies within the Household Equipment Repair Services industry repair and maintain household electrical appliances, electronic and gas appliances. Examples of products repaired by this industry include domestic air conditioners, electrical heating equipment, stoves, televisions and washing machines.
