The contract furniture and furnishings market in Saudi Arabia
AbstractThe contract furniture and furnishings market in Saudi Arabia is estimated around US$ 744 million (comprising lighting fixtures). Local - governmental- and foreign investments have been the main drivers of this performance. The manufacturing of classic wooden furniture claims the lions share, but the presence of steel and metal items is also increasing in the market. The report analyses the production (breakdown by segment), consumption and trade in the contract furniture market. Information about operators, distribution channels, delivery time and prices are also available. The study considers the impact of the financial crisis, with highlights about the future prospects. The contract furniture demand in the country is analysed and differentiated by major sectors: hotels, restaurants, airports, banks and public offices, education and retail. Short profiles of the leading Saudi and foreign manufacturers are provided, with figures about sales and employees when available. Two appendices of traders and architects/ contractors are included, containing contact details and activity specifications. Additional information (traded brands, showrooms, turnover, employees) is reported if available. The research is the result of direct interviews with 40 Saudi operators, official statistics and other official sources.
