Miele increased its turnover by 12.2% in 2022


With 12.2% sales growth in 2022, the Miele Group once again grew stronger than its long-term average. An above-par contribution to this accomplishment came primarily from eastern European and Asian markets, including China, but long-standing markets such as Australia, Great Britain, the Netherlands and the USA gave a good hand, too. In Germany, Miele achieved sales of € 1.47 billion, representing an increase of 5.6%. The contribution to turnover coming from outside Germany was 72%. “Among the product groups for households – the company explains –, above all dishwashers, laundry care appliances and cooking products performed above average, boosted by the first IFA trade show since 2019 with its innovation focus such as that on energy efficiency and cooking with artificial intelligence. For the first time ever, Miele produced more than 1 m washing machines and dishwashers each in a single calendar year. Vacuum cleaners, refrigeration products and coffee machines, all of which profited in a major way from the Covid-induced boom in 2020 and 2021, saw turnover increase in 2022”. Besides, the Professional business unit increased its turnover by 10.3% year-on-year and, with its laundry technology, commercial dishwashing and medical and laboratory technology product areas, contributed around 14% to overall sales.
