Amstelveen, November 12th 2019. In the 3rd quarter of 2019 the NL market for technical consumer goods grew compared to the same period last year. Growth was mainly driven by the IT and Major Domestic Appliances sectors. The second quarter growth in Mobile Computing (IT) continues in the third quarter. The segment Desk Computing grows as well. Both segments seem to be on the rise due to the Back-to-School period. For Major Domestic Appliances a more positive quarter is basically unthinkable, for all productgroups turn green, with 4 major segments showing double digit growths (Cooking, Dishwashers, Microwave Ovens and Tumbledryers).
