The global furniture market is expected to grow from $564 billion in 2020 to $671 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18.9%.
4 good reasons attribued to this growth:
- Improved housing market fundamentals in the United States make the near-term outlook for the furniture industry encouraging.
- Mortgage interest rates are at record lows,
- The continuous declines in mortgage rates have been driving new home sales, which in turn, should drive demand for furniture products in the near term.
- Working from home or stay-at-home orders amid the COVID-19 pandemic have encouraged consumers to take on more home improvement projects.
- Significant investments in renovation are expected to brighten the market outlook.
