Sharp has been an inventor for society for almost a hundred years. We don’t invent for the sake of it, we believe our products should solve real human problems to benefit our culture and wellbeing. We always look for opportunities to improve our lives; for the home and business, for the environment and society, and we provide solutions with the user in mind, with simple human benefits.
As part of our continued commitment to future innovation, we employ 8,000 researchers in facilities around the world and invest over 6.5% of our net sales in R&D. We’ll always strive to make products that our competitors want to imitate. We’ll always look for the next opportunity to invent for our society, and then we’ll tell you why we’ve innovated.

Sharp offers you a large range of innovative products for your home from Microwaves to Fridge-Freezers through to the very latest Plasmacluster Air Purifiers. Successfully producing microwave ovens for over 40 years, Sharp's expertise is unparalleled. Whether you choose a standard microwave or an extremely versatile combination microwave, there's a model to suit your family's needs. Fitting perfectly into your kitchen and lifestyle, Sharp's new range of frost-free fridge freezers has unique Plasmacluster technology and a hybrid cooling system that eliminates bacteria and strong odours and keeps your food beautifully fresh for much longer. Going beyond traditional air purification, Sharp Air Purifiers work together with an in-built humidifier to clean the air while preventing dust and pollen becoming air-borne. The built-in Ion generator separates water molecules, drawn in from the surrounding air, creating both positive hydrogen and negative oxygen ions. These are then showered into the surrounding atmosphere, removing odours, allergens and viruses.
