Nearshoring boosts appliance manufacturing in Mexico
Hisense, Whirlpool, Bosch, and Danfoss all announced openings in Mexico in 2022.
Mexico expects 8% growth in appliance production/investment
According to Forbes Mexico, industrial regions in Mexico are becoming much more important manufacturing hubs for household appliances. This is due to nearshoring and the United States Mexico and Canada (USMCA) Agreement.
The director of the Nuevo León Home Appliances Cluster (Clelac), Yoelle Rojas, told Forbes México that Mexico is taking advantage of the nearshoring trend within the production and investment. He believes there will be an 8% growth in these areas.
Household appliances manufactured in these areas include refrigerators, washing machines, stoves, vacuums and more. In 2022, manufacturers of the household appliances invested over US $1 billion dollars in Mexico. In total, the Mexico manufacturing industry for these appliances is worth over US $14 billion.
Hisense, Whirlpool, Bosch, and Danfoss all announced openings in Mexico in 2022. Rojas believes this industry will continue to grow in 2023.
At the most recent meeting of North American leaders, a specialized committee was formed to establish relations with those who promote the import substitution.
Rojas pointed out that, “currently, the smart home appliance industry is worth US $31 billion globally." Rojas sees this as a huge growth opportunity because of the new lines of production and development of the supply chain and new industry needs.
