Furniture Wholesaling in the US

Over the five years to 2016, the Furniture Wholesaling industry has continued to expand, spurred by rising demand from businesses and retailers. Moreover, per capita disposable income and consumer confidence have reached stable levels in recent years, leading to more discretionary purchases of big-ticket items, such as furniture. Furthermore, demand for home and office furniture is expected to remain stable over the five years to 2021, with continued improvement in economic conditions enabling modest growth in industry revenue.

This industry wholesales a broad range of furniture for homes and businesses. Wholesalers purchase goods from domestic and international manufacturers and sell them to department stores, furniture specialty shops and other respective businesses. This industry includes merchant wholesalers and vertically integrated furniture manufacturers that have moved distribution operations in-house and segment out wholesale operations.
