From that favourite pair of shoes to refrigerators, the Household Equipment Repair Services 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 meant that the role of repair services is approaching near redundancy.
The industry's services may be viewed as being partly counter-cyclical as consumers may choose to repair appliances rather than replace them during periods of low disposable income growth and weak consumer sentiment.
Companies within the Household Equipment Repair Services industry repair and or install household electrical appliances, non-electric household goods, footwear and leathergoods. Examples of products repaired by this industry include air conditioners, electrical heating equipment and washing machines. The industry also includes companies that provide key cutting and duplicating services.
