Market Overview

The GCC furniture market is expected to witness strong growth during the forecast period, owing to factors, such as the rising population and increased construction activity. The furniture industry has become one of the most vibrant and fast-growing industries in the GCC region. The growing number of real estate developments and the increasing demand for residential properties, along with governmental initiatives to develop socio-economic infrastructure, are some of the major factors fuelling the demand for furniture products in the region.

Foreign players are also investing heavily in the region, either to increase their presence or to expand their businesses in these countries, thereby, further boosting the GCC region's furniture industry. Furniture consumption is also rising due to a positive trend in construction activity. This generates a demand for furniture, both for residential and non-residential uage. The local furniture production is relatively lesser in the GCC market, and thus, the region meets its requirements thorough the imports of foreign products. 

The countries in the GCC region are heavy importers of furniture, with the majority of the imports coming from countries, like China, Italy, Turkey, Germany, the United States, Poland, and Malaysia.

Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates host the biggest furniture markets in the region, with the United Arab Emirates relying on re-exports of furniture products and Saudi Arabia relying completely on the domestic consumption of furniture products.

The Expanding Construction Sector is Driving the Market

The real estate sector has a significant effect on the furniture industry. The GCC region hosts one of the fastest-growing real estate markets across the world. Demographic changes, hosting of mega-events, tourism, and the influx of expatriates over the last few years are some of the major growth drivers for the real estate sector. Although the GCC region may have witnessed an economic slowdown, due to fluctuations in the oil market, the region is still witnessing increased investments.

Due to the increase in real estate activities in the region, the construction sector is expanding rapidly, mainly being driven by government-backed investments. The construction industry is witnessing a growth rate of nearly 5%, Y-o-Y, in the region, with increasing residential and commercial property developments. This rapid expansion in the construction sector will boost the demand for furniture products.
