Europe. Total home furniture consumption, 2012-2021. Euro billionTotal home furniture consumption in Europe

The European furniture market registered a decrease of 1% in 2020 over 2019, which was more than compensated in 2021 with a growth of over 10%, reaching almost EUR 140 billion. Europe still plays a key role in the global furniture market, being the second-largest market coming after the Asia Pacific and before North America. Within Europe, the largest markets are Germany, the UK, France, and Italy, absorbing altogether over 60% of the total European furniture consumption.
During the last decade, the furniture retailing sector has experienced structural changes. Looking at the past three years in particular, the pandemic accelerated a massive change in consumers behaviour, with an unprecedented increase in online sales. It is reasonable to assume that e-commerce will retain its relevance even after the crisis.
