APPLIANCE LEAD TIMES EXPLAINED

Updated: Feb 18

Due to an increased demand and industry wide availability issues on a range of components, some appliances are currently subject to delay or in some cases unavailable. Nearly all appliance brands have increased lead times. Specifically, many dishwashing and oven products are now seeing lead times of over 12 weeks, brought about by component shortages.


Why are lead times so delayed?


The longer lead times are due to a number of factors most notably:

  • Increased demand

  • Shortages of components

  • The lack of stock in the supply chain

  • Supplier difficulties increasing manufacturing rates



Other issues that have contributed to the extended lead times are transport problems, lockdown restrictions in different countries, Brexit complications, and component shortages.
