Canada Furniture Outlook
AbstractCanada is an important player in the international furniture industry. It is a big and open market and a large producer, although slow growing. CSIL ranks the country as the 9th largest furniture producer and consumer at world level. In recent years the rapid growth of imports and the decline in exports have turned Canada into a net importer of furniture. Nevertheless Canada remains among the top ten exporters of furniture worldwide. 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 Furniture 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).
