Over 20% of world home furniture consumption takes place in Western Europe, whose per capita spending in furniture purchases is higher than the world average.

This wide market is increasingly concentrated: the market share of top 15 retailers has grown constantly in the last 3 years. The increase in the level of concentration is due to the acquisitions, agreements and performances of major companies. The sample of over 200 Western Europe leading retailers analysed by CSIL outperformed the market in recent years.

Large retailers are also contributing to increase the market openness to extra-Western Europe import. IKEA is among best examples of the success of the outsourcing model, showing 978 home furnishing suppliers in 50 countries.
