According to CSIL, world consumption of upholstered furniture amounts to around USD 63 billion and accounts for about 16% of total world furniture consumption. Currently the largest markets are China, the United States, Germany and the United Kingdom.
 Within the world trade, the opening of the North American markets to foreign products is a major structural phenomenon and also represents the main engine for growth of international trade of upholstered furniture in the last years. After the contraction registered in 2015, mostly as a consequence of the depreciation of currencies of some major economies in relation to the US dollar, the world trade of upholstered furniture is expected to be positive both in 2016 and in 2017.

With a furniture production value of Eur 82 billion, almost 1 million workers employed in 116 thousand manufacturing firms, recognized worldwide for their quality and design, and with over 40% of world trade of furniture, Europe is still a key player in the international furniture sector.

And this, despite major structural changes in the world furniture industry in the last twenty years - among which the main and most evident has been the changing geography of production on a global scale, with the strong increase of furniture production in the Asia and Pacific region - have severely affected the area, reducing gradually its weight at a global level.

Around 45% of total world furniture production is made by wooden furniture. This aggregate includes both solid wood furniture and furniture with a wood based panel structure. This is quite a substantial share.
According to CSIL estimates, wooden furniture production increased by 30% on a global scale, during the 2009-2014 period. Consumption of wood based panels has also followed the trend. This confirms the increasing need for additional supply of raw materials and components for furniture manufacturing together with the need to face new challenge like new regulations, environmental aspects, waste reduction, recycling, certifications.

Given the importance of wood material in the world furniture industry, CSIL decided to go in-depth into this field and the main results of CSIL research are provided in the report “Wooden Furniture Outlook”, July 2015 edition, price EUR 1600.

the new 2014 edition of the report “The Furniture distribution in Europe” , Western countries, to be published within the end of May.

Over 20% of world furniture consumption takes place in Western Europe, which makes it a large and profitable market, with per capita spending in furniture purchases still higher than the world average.

The trend in Western Europe is for greater dependence on imported items, mainly from Eastern European and Asian countries.

Despite the recent difficulties caused by weak demand determinants, when analysing data for the last decade furniture prices registered an increase.

European furniture manufacturers are seeing prices rising more than their extra-EU foreign competitors. This put pressure on the market and, overall, margins reduced.

All these factors deeply affected the furniture retailing system.

CSIL worked on an extensive data gathering, including market data and detailed figures for over 200 retailers (all the main actors operating in Western Europe).

The aim of this report is to provide information on the following topics:

• Best performing countries in terms of furniture consumption

• Trends in consumption within the furniture sector (eg. import penetration in the upholstered furniture segment, competitiveness of local production in the kitchen segment)

• Main structural changes affecting the sector (eg. concentration process, the impact of large scale distribution)

• Evolution of market share of each distribution channel (eg. Independent furniture stores versus organized distribution)

• Country peculiarities in furniture retailing (eg. traditional distribution in Italy, non specialized distribution in UK)

• Analysis of the most profitable distribution channels (eg. the online sales)

• New approach and strategies in furniture retailing (eg. multichannel marketing)

• Policies and initiatives affecting the competition in the market (eg. EU initiatives)

• Listing of the leading furniture retailers in each country, with contact details

Countries covered: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, The Netherlands, UK.

Products included: Kitchens, Upholstered furniture, Dining and living rooms, Non-upholstered seats, Bedrooms, Mattresses, Other furniture.

Distribution channels analysed: Organized specialist distribution (Buying groups, Chains, Franchising chains), Independent specialist retailers, Non specialist retailers (DIY, Department stores, Multi - stores), E-commerce and Mail order.
