Russia’s Rebound Helps Office Furniture Market in CEE

The office furniture market is a clear example of the healthy convergence between Western Europe and the CEE countries. And with a growth rate in sales of 5.2% in 2017, Central and Eastern Europe will continue to catch up to the West. In fact, this rate of growth is expected to be maintained to 2021. According to a study by Interconnection Consulting, the total market volume in the countries analyzed (the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Romania, Bulgaria, the Ukraine, Russia, and Poland) was EUR 898 million.


Poland Soon #1

Such significant growth has also benefited from the fact that Russia is once again also showing an uptick in sales figures (+0.9%). Although Russia is still the largest market for office furniture in the CEE countries, Poland is set to overtake it this year. With a growth of 5.6% last year, Poland was also the market with the second-largest growth rate. Only Romania had an even stronger showing (+6.1%), though with a far smaller overall market.


Comfort Is King

Comfort is increasingly becoming an integral part of office life, explains Sasa Spiridonov, author of the study. So it is hardly surprising that lounge chairs, with a predicted annual growth of 6.2%, will be gaining heavily in market shares. There is also an apparent trend away from open-plan offices and to smaller units, which explains the anticipated above-average growth (+5.1% annually) of dividing walls in upcoming years.


Swivel Chairs Still Leading the Pack

The largest product group continues to be swivel chairs, with a market share of 31.1%, followed by desks (21.0%). With annual growth rates of 5.9% and 4.6% respectively, both sectors are forecast to do very well to 2021. By contrast, the prospects for storage furniture are less rosy. With anticipated annual growth of just 2.7% through the forecast period, storage will continue to lose market shares. Although direct sales is growing more than indirect sales, indirect sales continues its dominance, with a market share of 57.6%.
