  • Furniture trade by segment (upholstered furniture, non-upholstered seats, bedroom furniture, kitchen furniture, office furniture, parts of furniture, parts of seats) and by country/area;
  • World comparison of the imports/consumption and exports/production ratios, placing all the statistics in a broader context.

Further analysis (market potential and business climate):

  • Prospects for the furniture industry;
  • Assessments of market potential;
  • How easy it is to do business in the country;
  • Cross-country comparisons

Who are the top players in the area? The report provides information (name, activity, product portfolio and website) for over 280 manufacturers and distributors operating in the area and a description of the competitive system. International furniture fairs and professional furniture magazines are also indicated.

Selected companies

Gulf Countries.

The Gulf region is an interesting market for furniture companies: the area is an expanding market, whose population is growing rapidly and comprises consumers with a high purchasing power. Furniture consumption is also sustained by a positive trend in construction activity. This generates furniture demand, both for residential and non-residential use. Local furniture production is relatively undeveloped and the market is very open to imports. The area absorbed a total of around US$ 4 billion of imported products in 2016. China and the traditional producers, such as Italy, the USA and Germany, play a key role but competition is growing due to the increasing weight of other countries such as the UK, Egypt, Turkey and Poland. Also the number of local producers is rising, attracted by the numerous market opportunities.
