Now, there are a lot of other brands, however we felt these 10 stand out compared to the rest.

9. Orient

Orient is one of those brands which doesn’t spend as much as brands like Samsung, LG etc, however they have slowly build robust distribution and service channels. To a point where this Indian brand exports to over 35 countries!

What makes them unique is their approach to focus on design and create incredible experience centers – not what you typically expect from an Indian Brand.

Not a lot of people know this about Haier, but they’re a Chinese Company.

Haier has delivered consistently good products and have pretty good reviews.

They’re still establishing their brand, and hope to penetrate markets, where they don’t lack, is the quality of the product. Don’t let China tag fool you, Haier has some of the best appliances.

7. Samsung

Another South Korean Juggernaut, Samsung is known for their Display technology, and Smartphone chip set. They are one of the largest smartphone seller in the world, but they also have a robust Home Appliance business.

Samsung, because of great distribution and sales channels has leveraged these lines to also sell appliances, and just like LG, they’re not an OEM for most of their appliances.

One thing which makes Samsung incredible powerful is their investment in smart home technology in collaboration with their smartphones. This can prove to be a game changer in the future, but right now, it’s at very nascent, early stages.

6. LG

This South Korean brand has great brand recall, and is one of the leading manufacturers of TV displays.
Here’s the problem, their TV and Display division LG is the OEM, for other home appliance they primarily go for the assembly route. Meaning they’ve invested significantly in sales and marketing rather than product development.

Their washing machines motors are made by Bosch or Panasonic at times, the compressors may be from Japan, essentially they assemble all these together and sell to you.

Don’t get me wrong, LG has pretty good distribution and service channels to a point where I would suggest you to go ahead and even recommend them in some areas where other brands are not available.

5. SIEMENS

SIEMENS is also an old company in this space with various product categories. Now, here’s the thing, SIEMENS primarily focuses on premium customers.

They don’t have mixer grinders, or small appliances. SIEMENS has large multi door refrigerators. Large OTGs which are designed to not look like an “appliance”.

Philips has everything ranging from trimmers to washing machines. They have rice cookers, and even air purifiers!

What makes them unique is their focus on design – which is simple. They’ve invested a lot in figuring out best designs for their products, not in terms of looks, rather in terms of function.

One such innovation is their new One Blade Trimmer and Shaver where they’ve been able to merge trimmers and shaver into one seamless package.

3. Whirlpool

Total: 47/60

This US based company probably has some of the best advertising and marketing in the entire home appliance space.

They also have the best distribution – it’s very rare that you won’t find a Whirlpool dealer near your home.

Now, here’s the thing, Whirpool is not a OEM, meaning they buy a lot of their components from Bosch, Crompton and Greaves etc., so you many not get the best value for your money – when compared to other brands.

What they’ve done is focused on areas such as colors, design, and great brand recognition.

2. Panasonic
