Dyson Ltd. Key Developments

LG Electronics Sues Dyson over Ad Campaign in Australia

LG Electronics has recently filed an injunction against Dyson to stop its ad campaign in Australia that claims its cordless vacuum cleaner boasts ‘the suction power’ among rivals. The Korean tech giant said Dyson's claims are misleading consumers, saying its Cord Zero Cyking produces twice the suction power of Dyson's V6 cleaner. LG's Cyking has a maximum suction power of 200 watts, double the 100 watts of Dyson's V6. The lawsuit comes after LG launched the newest vacuum cleaner globally this year. Australia, where almost half the market is dominated by Dyson, is one of the strategic markets for the company's latest push. He also showed confidence in the upcoming court ruling by the Australian Federal Court.

The Dyson 360 Eye, priced at JPY 149,040, will be available at the company's direct outlet in Tokyo's Omotesando shopping district from October 23 and at 65 retail stores in major Japanese cities from October 26. The new product employs Dyson's cyclone technology and features what the company claims to be the greater suction power of any robotic vacuum cleaner. A 360-degree camera in the Dyson 360 Eye interprets obstacles, such as furniture, and helps the machine to clean rooms efficiently.

Other products on sale include fan heaters.
