Norway Furniture Outlook
Norway records extremely high levels of per capita home furniture consumption, far exceeding the Western European average. Almost 68% of furniture demand in Norway is satisfied by imports. It is worth noticing that the propensity to import has increased over the years, rising from 56% in 2002 to the current 68%. Recent years have witnessed the rapid rise of imports from low wage countries, mainly from China, Poland and Lithuania. However, around 50% of Norwegian imports still come from the neighbouring countries Sweden and Denmark. CSIL Market Research Norway Furniture Outlook analyzes through updated furniture statistics, useful indicators and through tables, graphs and maps the German furniture market. It is structured as follows: Overview of Furniture industry in Norway: executive summary and updated furniture statistics (value and trends of production, consumption, imports and exports), forecasts for the furniture industry in Norway for the coming years; Productive Factors (consumption and imports of wood-based panels, forest resources, imports of woodworking machinery); Furniture Production by segment (upholstered furniture, non-upholstered seats, bedroom furniture, kitchen furniture, furniture for dining and living rooms, office furniture, furniture parts); Demand Determinants (population, per capita GDP, households, disposable income, private final consumption expenditure, building permits and international tourism); Furniture Consumption by segment (upholstered furniture, non-upholstered seats, bedroom furniture, kitchen furniture, furniture for dining and living rooms, office furniture); Detailed tables of furniture imports and furniture exports of Norway by segment (upholstered furniture, non-upholstered seats, bedroom furniture, kitchen furniture, furniture for dining-living room, office furniture, parts of furniture, parts of seats) and by main countries and geographical area of origin/destination; Furniture Market potential in Norway (size of the market, performance, furniture consumer spending, market openness, import penetration); Top furniture companies . A list of top manufacturers and distributors operating in Norway are provided as well as international Furniture Fairs, Furniture Association and Professional Furniture magazines are also listed. CSIL Market Research Norway Furniture Outlook is part of the Country Furniture Outlook Series of reports (issued by CSIL since the 1990's), covering at present 70 countries. The report is carried out by CSIL experts that have been working for over 30 years in the field of furniture industry analysis.
