Irons in Argentina - New Market Research Report

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Sat Apr 25 2015

Sales of irons were affected by the cutback on long-term financing facilities for purchases made with credit cards after the large Peso devaluation and hike in interest rates seen in early 2014, but this was partially offset by the Ahora 12 programme launched by the government in August. Under this programme, main retailers in the country offer 12 payment instalments without interest for locally manufactured products. On top of that, although domestic production has a large participation in the total supply of irons, companies are facing limited access to foreign currency reserves in order to continue production and fund imported intermediate goods.

Competitive Landscape

Competition is low as three companies on the market concentrate nearly 77% of volume sales, with Liliana SRL leading in 2014 with a retail volume share of 28%, followed by New San with 26% and Philips Argentina SA with 22%, all three relying on local production. These companies are amongst those that benefited the most from the import restrictions applied by the Federal Government. Liliana SRL has 64 years of experience and produces 46 different small appliances.

Industry Prospects

Irons is set to grow by 2% CAGR in volume terms over the forecast period. A combination of factors impacting both supply and demand is expected to drive performance. A GDP already contracting in 2014 which is expected to continue contracting throughout 2015, inflation currently increasing at 38% annually which contributes to a reduced consumer confidence and upcoming presidential elections are the main threats to growth. Although Plan Ahora 12 helped to avoid sales from falling further in 2014, sustainable growth will be attained only if local producers gain in efficiency and product quality in order to compete with international brands once import barriers are relaxed in the medium term.
