Europe. Upholstered furniture production, 2016. Million EUR
European production of upholstered furniture amounts to Euro 12 billion recording a 7% increase over 2011, due to the combined effect of positive performances on both the export and the domestic markets, driven especially by Poland, but thanks also to the recovery in traditional manufacturing countries like Italy and the UK.
Poland, Italy, Germany and the United Kingdom rank among the top 10 upholstered furniture manufacturers worldwide: they claim a combined share of 15% of world production and almost 75% of European production.
One segment that is becoming increasingly important in the upholstered furniture industry is the recliner/motion segment, which is estimated to account for a sizeable share of total upholstered furniture production. This share varies from country to country and responds to a constantly growing demand
