United Kingdom Furniture Outlook
AbstractThe furniture industry in the UK is experiencing a structural downsizing. The contraction in furniture production (since 2007/2008) goes hand in hand with the increase in furniture imports and the challenge of imports has become an established phenomenon. However, British manufacturers have responded by developing an increasing degree of specialization, making significant improvements in quality and service and production output sees some development starting from the year 2010/2011. CSIL Market Research United Kingdom Furniture Outlook analyzes through updated furniture statistics, useful indicators and through tables, graphs and maps the German furniture market. It is structured as follows: Overview of Furniture industry in UK: executive summary and updated furniture statistics (value and trends of production, consumption, imports and exports), forecasts for the furniture industry in UK for the coming years; Productive Factors (consumption and imports of wood-based panels, forest resources, imports of woodworking machinery); Furniture Production by segment (upholstered furniture, non-upholstered seats, bedroom furniture, kitchen furniture, furniture for dining and living rooms, office furniture, furniture parts); Demand Determinants (population, per capita GDP, households, disposable income, private final consumption expenditure, building permits and international tourism); Furniture Consumption by segment (upholstered furniture, non-upholstered seats, bedroom furniture, kitchen furniture, furniture for dining and living rooms, office furniture); Detailed tables of furniture imports and furniture exports of UK by segment (upholstered furniture, non-upholstered seats, bedroom furniture, kitchen furniture, furniture for dining-living room, office furniture, parts of furniture, parts of seats) and by main countries and geographical area of origin/destination; Furniture Market potential in UK (size of the market, performance, furniture consumer spending, market openness, import penetration); Top furniture companies .
