The furniture industry in Europe, Part II. Outlook for 12 Eastern countries
AbstractThe 12 Eastern European countries considered in this analysis(Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia), with a value of furniture production of around EUR 15 billion and about 36,000 companies operating as manufacturers, provide a 4% share of world furniture production and account for 19% of total European (EU27) production. Despite the differences and peculiarities of each country, these figures give an idea of the importance of this area in a global perspective. Poland which accounts for about 50% of total supply of the 12 Eastern European countries, is a leading international player, being the 7th furniture producer and the 4th furniture exporter in the world. Upholstered furniture is the largest industry sub-sector: the weight of the 12 Eastern European countries upholstered furniture production amounts to 26% of total furniture production. Office furniture and kitchen furniture have a lower share, amounting to 7% and 6% on total furniture production, respectively.
