The furniture market in Italy continues to register positive performances, dictated both by domestic consumption and by strong exports - Italy is among the world's leading manufacturers of furniture. Due to the very long life of furniture, brands rely on three factors to increase their sales: fashion (especially in the kitchen), the construction of new homes and the mobility of the population. In a market historically controlled by the actors present in the physical points of sale (e.g. Ikea, Leroy Merlin), traditional brands are increasingly finding themselves in difficulty in response to the increase in e-Commerce and used trade.

The market study covers the following products: furniture, kitchen furniture, sofas, armchairs and benches, bedding, bathroom furniture and garden furniture. We explicitly exclude complementary products such as decorative items, lighting, appliances and flatware from this market.
