The Company has warranty obligations in connection with the sale of certain of its products. The warranty period for its products is generally twelve (12) months except in certain European countries where it can be twenty-four (24) months for some consumer-focused products. The costs incurred to provide for these warranty obligations are estimated and recorded as an accrued liability at the time of sale. The Company estimates its future warranty costs based on product-based historical performance rates and related costs to repair.

The changes in the Company’s accrued warranty obligations for the years ended December 31, 2019, 2018 and 2017 were as follows:
