Europe. Imports of office furniture by product segment 2020. % shares
The Covid-19 epidemic had a great impact on the way people work and affected the office furniture sector. Consumption of office furniture in Europe dropped to around EUR 7.7 billion in 2020. Germany, Poland, and Switzerland are among the largest markets in the area that showed a less marked decrease. The CSIL outlook, however, shows a recovery in Europe's office furniture consumption for the next two years.
The pandemic is expected to produce a reassessment of distribution policies and a partial rethinking of office furniture manufacturers' portfolio. With the increasing number of people working from home, office seating held up better than other products. Also the use of height-adjustable desks increased. To be also pointed out, the rapid expansion of desk screens/free-standing partitions and acoustic booth collections.
