Europe plays a key role in the global furniture industry and this is evident not only in terms of production, but also in terms of market and international trade values. Furniture production in the area reaches over EUR 90 billion in 2017, accounting for around one fourth of the global furniture industry. Western Europe is responsible for the largest share, but Eastern countries are the fastest growing ones. Germany, Italy, Poland, the United Kingdom and France rank among the top 12 furniture manufacturers worldwide, and hold a combined share of 15% of world production and 66% of Europe's production.
Furniture manufacturing has a long history in Europe. This, together with cultural heritage, gives European manufacturers a competitive edge and favors the development of creative competences recognized worldwide. Thus, the industry is able to combine new technologies and innovation with cultural heritage and style, provides jobs for skilled workers and is also a world leader in the high-end segment of the furniture market. .
While remaining a SME-based industry, Europe is the headquarters of some of the biggest and most important global players. According to CSIL, 81 out of the top 200 furniture manufacturers worldwide are located in Europe.
