Abstract

Fifteen years ago about 20% of the furniture traded worldwide was of Italian origin, with the reputation of furniture "Made in Italy" recognized by foreign retailers and consumers all over the world.

Thanks to all these factors, today Italy is still a key player in the furniture sector, as it is the fourth largest producer in the world, after China, the USA and Germany and it ranks third for furniture exports after China and Germany.
