CSIL worked on an extensive data gathering, including market data and detailed financial figures for around 275 retailers (the main actors operating in Europe).

Over 600 furniture retailers and buying groups, of which 160 with detailed profile are mentioned in the study.

Home furniture market is broken down by distribution channel: Organized specialist distributors (furniture chains, franchises, buying groups); Independent furniture retailers; Non specialist distributors (department stores, multi-stores, DIY); e-commerce; Other (direct sales and craftsmen).

The estimate of online share is available for markets included in the report.

Furniture segments included: Kitchen furniture, Upholstered furniture, Dining and living rooms, Non-upholstered seats, Bedrooms, Mattresses, Other furniture.

Timeframe considered: 2012-2021 (preliminary data) and furniture market forecasts in real terms for 2022 and 2023.

Highlights:

The European furniture market registered a decrease of 1% in 2020 over 2019, which was more than compensated in 2021 with a growth of over 10%, reaching almost EUR 140 billion. Europe still plays a key role in the global furniture market, being the second-largest market coming after the Asia Pacific and before North America. Within Europe, the largest markets are Germany, the UK, France, and Italy, absorbing altogether over 60% of the total European furniture consumption.

During the last decade, the furniture retailing sector has experienced structural changes. Looking at the past three years in particular, the pandemic accelerated a massive change in consumers behaviour, with an unprecedented increase in online sales. It is reasonable to assume that e-commerce will retain its relevance even after the crisis.

Selected companies mentioned:

Amazon, De Mandemakers, DFS, Fournier, Groupe Adeo, Howden Joinery, IKEA, John Lewis, Kingfisher, La Redoute, Lars Larsen, Maisons du Monde, Migros, Mondo Convenienza, Otto Group, Poltronesofà, Sainsbury's / Home Retail, Schmidt Grupe, Segmüller Gruppe, Steinhoff International, Sun Capital, Wayfair, XXXLutz.
