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.
