Europe. Contract furniture. Production by country, % shares

Source: CSIL processing

The contract furniture production in Europe currently amounts to around EUR 14 billion. The largest part of this output is destined for projects within Europe, while less than 20% is addressed outside, to North America, Middle East, and Asia-Pacific.

Italy, Germany, the UK, Poland, and Sweden are the major manufacturing countries, representing together over 60% of the total European contract furniture production.

Contract furniture segments are evolving at a different speed further to a deep transformation of public and commercial furniture demand drivers. While Healthcare, Marine, Real Estate, Education, Luxury Shops, and Restaurant segments are showing a fast post-pandemic recovery, the Retail sector has been hardly challenged with a significant downgrade of the mass market retail, even if sustained by the grocery segment. Office and Hospitality businesses have not yet reached the pre-pandemic level, but are expected to grow in the next years.
