As far as imports are concerned, it is argued by Paba that the principal barrier to import penetration in the UK industry during this period was ‘high product differentiation’ (1986: 307). In brief, he argues that domestic appliances is an industry in which it is very difficult to judge the quality of the product before purchase and consumers were drawn towards known and familiar brands. Such a situation gave established brands a considerable advantage, making it difficult for new entrants to persuade consumers to try them out.
