Electrolux warned it may struggle to meet demand

Electrolux warned it may struggle to meet demand through the rest of the year and into 2022 due to global supply-chain challenges, after its profit slumped in the third quarter as component shortages held back production.

Europe’s biggest home appliances maker said it still sees demand normalising above pre-pandemic levels but flagged limited availability of some product categories through the year, with regional variances.

“We continue to have a tight collaboration with suppliers to mitigate global supply shortages, but we estimate that the fourth quarter will be even more challenging than the third quarter,” the rival to Whirlpool said in a statement.

“Although we anticipate sequential improvements in 2022, we expect challenging conditions to remain in meeting continued strong demand.”
