Polish white-goods export drops

The value of Polish-made white-goods in 2013 stood at €3.398 billion, which means that year-on-year it dropped by 1 percent, which is the first drop in many years. In 2012 alone exports rose by 10 percent.

“Smaller export is a result of lower demand abroad, 85 percent of white-goods made in Poland are exported,” Wojciech Konecki, CEO of CECED Polska, which encompasses most of Polish white-goods producers, told Dziennik Gazeta Prawna. In Germany alone, sales of white-goods dropped by 1.4 percent, in France the drop was 2.6 percent and in Russia a staggering 8.7 percent.

Konecki thinks that the drop is only temporary and in 2014 exports should grow again, not only because the economic slowdown in European countries seems to be over, but the producers are also entering other, more distant markets where they can sell their products.
