The European production of furniture components is worth about Euro 5,200 million. Italy is the leading European producer, exporter, and consumer, while Germany – being the main furniture producer in Europe – is the leading importer of furniture components.

This report provides trends in production and consumption of furniture components in 6 European countries (France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain, United Kingdom) and in the Nordic-Scandinavian Area. It also covers imports and exports, sectors of destinations, distribution channels, environmental certification.

For all those regions, the report provides a breakdown of production by product type (bars, cabinet doors, drawers, frames, worktops, others ), by industry of destination (office furniture, kitchen and bathroom furniture, dining, living and bedroom furniture), by support material (wood, MDF, particle board, plywood, other materials), by wood species, and by coating material (veneer, melamine foils, laminates, PVC, lacquered).

As far as raw materials are concerned, the report provides data on European production, consumption, imports and exports of particleboard panels, also considering other wood-based panels (MDF, plywood, fibre board panels). The report provides also data about the sectors of destinations of particle board and MDF.

A complete picture of the main sectors of destination of furniture components is provided: detailed production data are available for office furniture, kitchens and other household furniture, RTA furniture, as well as data on main manufacturers.

The European competitive system is analysed, with the available data on the main furniture components’ manufacturers (sales, employees).

76 profiles of the main European manufacturers of furniture components are also available.

Among the considered products: furniture components (furniture parts), cabinet doors, drawers, wood based materials, worktops, bars and mouldings, bodies, chassis and frames, baseboards and caps, seats and tables components, curved parts, wood-based panels (particleboard panels, MDF, plywood, fibreboard panels,), semi-finished panels, support materials for furniture components, coating materials for furniture components, office furniture (seating, operative desking, executive furniture, filing systems / storage, wall-to-wall units), office furniture in wood and metal, household furniture, bedrooms, living rooms, bathroom furniture, kitchen furniture, RTA furniture.
