Portugal Furniture Outlook
AbstractPortugal is one of the smallest countries in the EU in terms of population, hence its furniture industry is also considered small. It is the fourteenth producer with a share of 1.5% of total European furniture supply. Over the last two years, the furniture market in Portugal has been strongly affected by the crisis. In order to face this difficult situation, Portuguese furniture manufacturers have started to emphasize their strategies on design and brand internationalization... This research is part of the Country Furniture Outlook Series, covering at present 70 countries. Each Country Furniture Outlook Report is structured as follows: furniture sector performance is analyzed through updated furniture statistics and through tables, graphs and maps. Information covers all the main variables necessary to analyze the sector, from the supply side (Productive Factors, Furniture Production) to the market side (Demand Determinants, Furniture Consumption), also considering the international trading activity (Furniture Imports and Exports). Future sector prospects and CSIL's assessment of market potential are also provided (Furniture Market Potential) and cross-country comparison is also shown in order to enrich the analysis (Country Rankings). Short profiles of manufacturers and distributors operating in the country and a list of international Furniture Fairs, Furniture Association and Professional Furniture magazines are also provided Background country information is also provided through summarized detailed statistics (Socio-Economic Data) as well as the country's attractiveness in terms of economic competitiveness (Business Climate)
