The office furniture market in South Africa
In 2009 production of office furniture in South Africa accounted for US$ 215 million. Although affected by the global downturn last year, the country is likely to show a surprising recovery during the middle quarters of 2010. The increasing trends in consumers demand, the ongoing relevant public sector spending and the 2010 FIFA World Cup will contribute to South African robust acceleration. This Report provides market trends and updated data on the office furniture production, consumption, import and exports. Office furniture production is reported by segment (office seating, desks, executive furniture, filling and storage). Office furniture imports and exports are broken down by country and geographical area of origin/destination. The research is enriched by an in-depth analysis of the office furniture demand determinants: the construction sector, the investment climate, the employment trend and the demand from related sectors (education, hotel and restaurants). Office furniture distribution is broken down by direct sales (including show rooms and owned stores), dealers, architects and specifiers. Figures on sales and market shares for a sample of local manufacturers are also provided. Among the considered products: office seating, operative desks, executive furniture, filing and storage systems.
