Factors determining the demand for furniture are examined, as well as furniture consumption, furniture production by geographical areas in each country and productive factors (with a focus on wood-based panels, forest resources, woodworking machinery).

Furniture imports and exports are broken down by country and product (office furniture, kitchen furniture, upholstered furniture, non-upholstered seats, bedroom furniture, seats parts and parts of furniture).
