White goods include major domestic appliances used such as gas and electric ovens, freezers, refrigerators, stoves,vacuum cleaners and microwave ovens. The sales volume grew tremendously year on year for the 1st time in three years in the April-June quarter, showing a positive shift in consumer sentiment and igniting hopes of a good year for home appliance makers.

According to some reports, ”Air-conditioners led the improvement with volume sales in the 1st quarter up 21% compared to the year-ago period.” Sales volume of washing machines and refrigerators rose 15% during the quarter.
