Laundry Dryer for the Young Generation in China
Research and interviews have shown that monsoon season in southern China is a relevant issue in this context, because the resulting wetness makes drying laundry a problem. The young generation usually dries their laundry on the balcony. On the one hand, that makes balconies look untidy, on the other hand, it is a question of hygiene because of air pollution. However, tumble dryers are still aren't a common home appliance in China, which is why the young Chinese usually has no experience with dryers. That's why there's a great potential for dryers in the Chinese market.
The final concept is a condensation dryer that is well suited for young consumers with maximum flexibility and ease of use.
