Bright perspectives for the Chinese kitchen furniture market
AbstractDuring 2008, China and Hong Kong imported kitchen furniture for USD 48 million and USD 22 million respectively. During the period 2003-2008, the average yearly growth rate was +23% for China and â€“4% for Hong Kong. Imports of kitchen furniture were practically non-existent in 1993 and they accounted for just a few million USD in 1997. A steady growth has been reported till 2007 (from USD 17 million to USD 46 million in five years) while just a 6% increase was registered in 2008. Imports almost exclusively come from Germany (75%) and Italy (9%). Some Japanese and Korean companies have outsourced in China small amounts of production.
