Over the past decade the Egyptian furniture industry has witnessed rapid progress, becoming one of the country's fastest growing and most promising industries.
Egypt displays a dynamic furniture industry, which has proven more and more successful on the international markets. In particular, between 2004 and 2008 production doubled, driven by a surge in exports, and output reached almost US$ 860 million.
The increase in the exports/production ratio was really impressive between 2000 and 2009 rising from 3% in 2000 to 26% in 2009.
Some of the reasons for this dynamism and improvement are: the long tradition of craftsmanship, investments in skilled labour and the most advanced technology, improved business management and government supportive policies with the aim of building an internationally recognized furniture design and production industry.

CSIL Market Research Egypt Furniture Outlook is part of the Country Furniture Outlook Series, covering at present 60 countries.

What can be expected to happen in the market in coming years?

An executive summary (see The Key Facts of the Furniture Sector) provides the furniture industry overview, based on CSIL processing of statistics and company data from official sources, both national and international, as well as industry information and field information collected through interviews with companies and industry experts. CSIL then provides an independent assessment of the industry performance and prospects for the coming years.

What is the market size and its growth rate?

Furniture industry performance is illustrated through updated furniture statistics and through tables, graphs and illustrated maps. Information covers all the main variables necessary to analyze the industry, from the supply side (see Productive Factors – sawnwood, wood-based panels, forest resources, woodworking machinery- and Furniture Production – by segment: upholstered furniture, kitchen furniture, office furniture; by geographical regions in the country) to the market side (see Demand Determinants – population, per capita GDP, households, residential dwellings and buildings, new office buildings and international tourism), Furniture Consumption - by segment: upholstered furniture, kitchen furniture, office furniture).
