Furniture distribution in Switzerland
AbstractAmong the European (17) countries, Switzerland accounts for share of 3.4% of total European furniture demand. Furniture consumption reached worth Euro 3.4 billion. Furniture consumption is largely satisfied by foreign products: Switzerland is, in fact, the country with the highest propensity for purchasing upholstered furniture of foreign origin. Swiss furniture sales are concentrated in the specialist channel. The buying groups are not so important in this country. The leading independent chains on the Swiss market include Pfister Arco, IKEA, Interior and Micasa, both part of the Globus Group.

Analysis of home furniture imports by segment (upholstered furniture, non upholstered-seats, kitchen furniture, dining and living room furniture, bedroom furniture) and by country are also provided. Addresses of about 15 companies mentioned in the report are included.
