TOKYO (NQN)–Domestic shipments of large appliances dropped 6.9% on the year to 132.53 billion yen in January, marking the seventh straight month of decline, the Japan Electrical Manufacturers’ Association reported Monday.

In January 2011, shipments of air conditioners increased sharply due to the government’s eco-point sales incentives for energy-efficient appliances. But shipments fell this year because consumers are no longer eligible for the incentives.
