Italy Furniture Outlook
AbstractItaly is an historical leader in furniture sector. Fifteen years ago about 20% of the furniture traded worldwide was of Italian origin, with the reputation of furniture "Made in Italy" recognized by foreign retailers and consumers all over the world. The key factors of this success were large investments in design, a business model based on industrial districts and a high propensity to export. Thanks to all these factors, today Italy is still a key player in the furniture sector, as it is the fourth largest producer in the world, after China, the USA and Germany and it ranks third for furniture exports after China and Germany.
