Desk jockeys: Overseas competition and volatile inputs will offset improved industry conditions

Office Furniture Manufacturing in the US

Desk jockeys: The Office Furniture Manufacturing market has suffered tough conditions over the five years to 2011. Low business sentiment and high unemployment following the recession have created little impetus for office furniture demand since 2005, leading manufacturers to reduce the volume of goods they supply. Meanwhile, rising import penetration from China has hurt market sales further, as the country is able to produce goods at much lower costs. Fortunately, demand conditions have been slowly improving as the US economy recovers from the recession and businesses begin to grow operations.

Office furniture manufacturers produce a range of office furniture including bookcases, cabinets, chairs, desks and filing cabinets. In addition, they manufacture office and store fixtures including cafeteria fixtures, countertops (except kitchen and bathroom), furniture parts and partitions. Furniture may be ordered pre-designed or customized and may be sold assembled or unassembled.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the market including the key sensitivities and success factors. The report also provides a 5 year market forecasts and growth ratio (CAGR). The last part of the report includes data and information related to the competitive landscape. Key industry players are profiled along with a market share analysis. .
