Office space: Demand will rise as businesses expand, but overseas competition will limit growth
Office Furniture Manufacturing in the US
Desk jockeys: Low business sentiment and high unemployment adversely affected the industry during the recession, as demand for office furniture remained low. Meanwhile, rising import penetration from China has hurt industry revenue further, since the country is able to produce goods at much lower costs. Nevertheless, demand will revive slowly over the next five years, in line with the improved job market, spurring growth for office furniture manufacturers.
The Office Furniture Manufacturing industry produces a wide range of office furniture, including bookcases, cabinets, chairs, desks and filing cabinets. It also manufactures office and store fixtures, such as cafeteria countertops (except kitchen and bathroom),
furniture parts and partitions. Furniture may be ordered predesigned or customized, and may be sold assembled or unassembled.
