The office furniture market in Latin America
The value of the office furniture market in Latin America is estimated to be about one third of the European one. Brazil is by far the largest office furniture producer and consumer in the area, followed by Mexico, Argentina, Venezuela and Colombia. This report analyses trends in office furniture production and consumption in Latin America (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela). It also covers office furniture imports, exports, and commercial distribution. For each country the office furniture basic data are provided (office furniture production and consumption, office furniture imports and exports - by country and geographic area, when available), as well as data on the supply structure (companies and concentration). Product trends and opportunities on local markets are examined. For some of the considered countries short profiles of the most representative office furniture companies are available with turnover, employees, product mix. For Mexico an analysis of the Maquiladora industry is provided. The analysis of office furniture distribution channels considers both recent trends and expectations, providing for some countries data on the main customer firms (turnover, employees), distribution channels and office furniture distributors. A list of addresses of targeted dealers, potential customers and leading players in the office furniture market in Latin America is provided on floppy disk upon request.
