Haier Pakistan (Urdu: ہائیر پاکستان‎) is a consumer electronics and home appliances company in Pakistan. Established in 2000, it is a subsidiary of the Chinese multinational group Haier.[1]

It is one of the largest companies in Pakistan's home appliances market, in terms of sales and revenues generated.[2] Common appliances produced by the group include refrigerators, air conditioning units, washing machines, kitchen appliances, and handsets.[3]

In 2015, Haier invested $5 million to establish a mobile phone assembly plant in Lahore, which would annually manufacture over 1.5 million cellphones for the Pakistani market.[1] In the first half of 2017, Haier sold more than 270,000 refrigerators, exceeding previous years' figures.[4]

The group's CEO is Javed Afridi and it notably owns the Peshawar Zalmi franchise in the Pakistan Super League, which was acquired for $16 million over a ten-year period.[5][6] The group has also sponsored other cricket and sports tournaments in the country.[7]
