Market Insights and Analyst View:

The electric blankets market is growing due to the rapidly growing demand for consumer products with innovative technological additions. The electric blankets are much more efficient than regular blankets and are therefore preferred by consumers living in countries with extreme cold temperatures. The demand for electric blankets is also growing due to increased consumer demand for premium bedding and related products. Electric blankets are getting utmost attention among consumers owing to the various benefits associated with the product such as allowing consumers to adjust temperatures, delivering maximum comfort, and lesser energy consumption. As the products are witnessing increased innovation with additional features such as battery-powered blankets with mobile chargeable sockets, waterproof blankets, lightweight, durable, machine washable, and water-resistant blankets.

Growth Drivers and Challenges:

Extreme and bitter winters with low temperatures and increasing demand for heated products such as electric blankets with unique features are some of the notable drivers influencing the demand for electric blankets in frosty regions. Electric blankets are more cost-effective than room heaters and have low running costs compared to the heaters. This factor has gained the popularity of electric blankets in many icy countries and is expected to continue through the forecast period. Electric blanket suppliers focus on launching new products and boosting their sales potential in icy nations. For instance, in June 2021, Aldi Australia announced the launch of new heated electric blankets which can also be used in cars. The aged population is increasing across the globe, and this trend is mostly prominently in countries in Europe and Australia & Oceania. Aged people are sensitive to changes in weather, and extreme cold or heat can create further complications in health. An increasing focus on elderly care is expected to drive the sales of electric blankets.

The use of electric blankets are seasonal, which makes it a high-risk business during off season. Improper use of electric products like electric blankets may make it a menacing addition to a bed. Use of overheated electric products such as electric blankets during pregnancy can be risky. Pregnant women are suggested not to use electric blankets because they produce low-frequency electromagnetic fields which enter the body and can be harmful for mother and child. Many companies have invested considerable funds into the research & development, designing & packaging, and promotion of the product. They are only expected to sell for 2-3 months as the products are not in demand during summers. In addition, less awareness about electric blankets in many urban and rural areas across the globe is a challenging factor that restrains the market's growth.
