This report provides an overview of the world furniture industry with basic data (production, consumption, imports, exports) and scenario 2008 and 2009 for 60 furniture markets. The growth of furniture imports and the role of furniture exporting countries in the world marketplace are also considered. Prospects of world furniture trade in 2008 and 2009 and forecasts on the evolution of furniture markets in the 60 countries (selected according to their contribution to production and international trade of furniture) are based on the analysis of furniture industry dynamics and of macro-economic indicators. Market shares of the major furniture exporters are provided by geographical region and developed countries/emerging countries. The analysis of the opening of furniture markets covers the past nine years, with data on trade balance, imports/consumption and exports/production ratio. Statistics and outlook data are also available in a country format: origin of furniture imports, destination of furniture exports, historical series on furniture production, consumption and trade, country rankings to place all statistics in a broad worldwide context. The report provides a picture of opportunities for furniture exporters arising from the increasing openness of markets and a rich collection of key country-data, allowing comparisons among specific interest areas. The sixty country tables have been expanded to include three additional items: Total household consumption expenditure (in billions of US$); Total GNP at purchasing power parity (in billions of US$); Per capita GNP at purchasing power parity (in US$).
