The Retail Market for Home Furniture & Bedding
Despite a slow economic recovery, rebounding consumer confidence and housing starts have spurred purchases for home furniture and bedding retailers in recent years. While the average price of the industry's products is expected to decrease slowly, rising sales volumes have driven revenue growth for industry operators over the five-year period. Similar to the industry's low degree of revenue volatility, the industry's target markets have remained consistent. The largest market segment for home furniture and bedding retailers remains consumers aged 35 to 44. Spurred by price competition, the industry's average profit margin is forecast to fall slightly over the five years to 2021. Home furniture and bedding retailers are anticipated to remain heavily reliant on labor for sales, with wages failing slightly as operators attempt to salvage profit margins.
