Over the past five years, the Online Home Furnishing Sales industry has grown at a staggering rate. Per capita disposable income is expected to continue increasing amid declining unemployment and an improving economy, enabling consumers to increase their spending on discretionary items. Moreover, as the number of broadband internet connections continue to rise, more consumers will choose online retailers over brick-and-mortar locations. Over the next five years, continued economic growth and an increase in consumer spending is expected to drive the industry. Furthermore, as housing starts increase, industry operators will benefit from new homeowners who have to furnish their homes.
This industry retails a range of home furnishing goods, such as curtains, draperies, blinds, shades and decorative accessories, via the internet. Merchandise is purchased from domestic (in some cases international) manufacturers and wholesalers, and then sold to the public online.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
