Switzerland is the eighth largest market in Western Europe, providing about 4% of WE home furniture demand. The Swiss furniture market is extremely open. Germany is by far Switzerland's leading trading partner, accounting for 40% of its total imports. In Switzerland furniture sales are mainly concentrated in the specialist channel. The distribution structure has changed significantly over the years. Recently, in order to face a tough domestic market in which consumers are tempted by tourism shopping, chains have offered significant discounts across the board, which has caused severe price pressure. The market conditions were particularly harsh for retailers in the middle range.
