LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Technavio has announced the top six leading vendors in their recent global travel irons market report. This research report also lists nine other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.
Travel irons are mostly used by business professionals. However, with increasing consciousness of consumers about dressing even during leisure travel, the sales of these portable, lightweight irons will likely increase during the forecast period.
As irons comprise a part of the very basic appliances, there is not much innovation taking place on this front, globally. However, in order to increase the sales of travel irons and further entice consumers, players are introducing various features such as convertible wings, dual voltage, and compact nonstick soleplates.
Competitive vendor landscape
The global travel irons market is moderately competitive with the presence of numerous leading conventional iron brands presenting a wide variety of models. Companies compete against each other in terms of quality, technology, and pricing. Therefore, to survive and succeed in this stiff competitive environment, it is imperative for vendors to distinguish their product offerings by incorporating innovations and stay abreast of emerging technologies that have a bearing on their product lines.
“Providing low-price options is one of the strategies that the players of small domestic appliances like travel irons are focusing on. Players operating in this space are also focusing on offering innovative features for consumers looking to upgrade their existing travel iron models,” says Poonam Saini, a lead retail goods and services analyst from Technavio.
A rise in the prevalence of Omni channel retailing can be seen in the market, as players realize the vital role of this channel in ensuring the maximum visibility of products. Omni-channel retailing uses a mix of distribution channels like retail stores and online stores for enhancing customer engagement. Key players like Koninklijke Philips and Sunbeam Products are focusing on omni channel retailing for selling their products.
