Report on Indian Market for Furniture
The size of the Indian market for furniture in 2019 was US$ 18 billion.
The market is growing annually at the rate of 12%.
- 2020- US$ 16.20 Billion (The market has shrunk by 10% because of pandemic)
- 2021- US$ 19.44 Billion (The expected growth next year will be 20%–normal growth + suppressed demand of pandemic year)
India is devoid of the facility of manufacturing furniture in an organized way. Leading Indian furniture manufacturers like Godrej Interio, Spacewood, Zuari Furniture etc. are an exception, rather than the rule. Infact, almost 85% of furniture sold in the Indian market is manufactured in the unorganized sector.
However, the point of interest is that the organized retailing of furniture has outpaced the organized manufacturing of furniture in India. The last decade and a half has seen medium and large showrooms mushrooming all over India, especially in metropolitan cities. These retailers have a Pan India presence and are essentially multi outlet furniture retailers as they also retail other household products. It would be relevant to draw attention to the fact that 40 to 50% of the furniture on display in these showrooms has been imported from China, Indonesia, Vietnam etc.
