Europe.Imports of office furniture
, 2014-2019. Million Eur and percentages
The European market for office furniture exceeded EUR 9 billion in 2019. Among the largest markets, Germany, the UK and the Netherlands. The performance improved for the fourth consecutive year, sustained by a strong growth of imports, representing about 42% of total European consumption of the sector. Imports originates for over 74% from European supplying countries. However, the share of products coming from China has been gaining ground over the years and currently represent 9% of the whole office furniture consumption, a percentage which is even higher considering office seating only.
The consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic on office furniture consumption vary from country to country depending on length of the lockdowns, status of the economy in early 2020, ability to mobilize resources to assist in the recovery, and, for office furniture exporting countries, opportunities to stimulate local consumption to absorb office furniture made available.
At the time being, forecasts for office furniture consumption in the whole European area are for a huge drop in 2020, impacting on all the top markets. A rebound of the office furniture market in Europe, though feeble, is expected in 2021.
