UAE Furniture Market is driven by Surge in Domestic and International Tourism, Growth in Commercial Establishments and Intense Competition from Different Format Stores: Ken Research

Rising number of furniture manufacturers & retail outlets, residential construction & housing activity and increasing awareness among customers about the latest designs and trends has driven the growth of furniture in the country.

Emergence of International Players: The growing demand for furniture by residential, commercial and industrial sector in UAE has invited many foreign players to sell their products in the domestic markets of UAE. The UAE furniture industry saw the entry of Swedish furniture giant, IKEA in 1991, which has grown substantially in the last few decades and has established a name for affordable high street furniture

Increasing Competition among Furniture Manufacturers and Retailers: The furniture market of the UAE region is highly competitive owing to the rising demand of furniture and furnishing products. This rise in demand has led to the growing domestic demand and emergence of multiple players catering to the same target audience in the space. Manufacturers and retailers operating in the region compete on almost same grounds of quality of the product and the material used to manufacture the product. New entrants into the market find it hard to compete with established companies in terms of matching the quality offered by established firms at cheap prices due to their continuous operations, which has led to economies of scale.

Demand for Furnishing Products: The demand for barbeques and garden sheds saw an increase due to the rise in barbeque restaurants and the ability of charcoal barbeques to produce flavorful and better results than gas barbeques. The replacement time period for furniture products on an average is of twelve months, owing to which there is also an increase in demand for furnishing products.

Players in Commercial Furniture: The organized furniture sector which entails players like IKEA, PAN Emirates, Royal Furniture and others have not been able to dominate the commercial furniture segment. This segment is dominated by individual furniture retailers who specialize in manufacture and retail of commercial furniture products. SAGTCO, Highmoon Office Furniture, BAFCO, Al Hawai Office Furniture are some of the major players which operates in the commercial furniture market.
