Over the five years to 2016, the Furniture and Furnishings Wholesaling industry has experienced growth due to strong corporate profit, an increasing number of businesses and a falling unemployment rate. However, slow per capita disposable income growth and concerns of a housing bubble have caused demand for household furniture and furnishings to be erratic. Over the next five years, the Furniture and Furnishings Wholesaling industry is expected to growth at a more subdued rate than the previous five-year period due to continued concerns for the housing market.
This industry wholesales a broad range of furniture for homes, such as bed frames and sofas. Wholesalers purchase goods from domestic and international manufacturers and sell them to department stores, furniture specialty shops and other businesses.
