Moving day: Improving disposable income and homeownership levels will boost demand
Furniture Stores in the US
The Furniture Stores industry is expected to start sitting up after some setbacks during the past five years. Like most retailers of household goods, the industry has been negatively impacted by lower home ownership, reduced disposable income and stronger external competition. Through 2017, higher disposable income and strong consumer sentiment will help boost demand for furniture. Also, as the level of home ownership rises, homeowners will purchase more household goods. At the same time, the industry will continue to experience growing competition from other outlets, such as department stores and mass merchandisers, which will offset some of the forecast industry growth.
Operators in this industry primarily sell
household, outdoor and office furniture (except those sold in combination with office supplies and equipment). Sales for living room, dining room and bedroom furniture dominate the industry, followed by demand for upholstered furniture. Desks and home office goods, lamps, recliners, rugs and outdoor furniture make up the rest of sales.
