Due to a vibrant consumer market and large urban population, consumer appliance goods have always been popular and in demand in the Indian marketplace. Air conditioners are in more demand in cities than rural areas. In cities such as Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai and Kolkata, the use of air conditioners have become indispensable. This is mostly due to the tropical weather of India, including the sweltering summers, that has temperatures rising up to 37 degrees Celsius.
