Key Market Trends

Increased momentum in development of smaller apartments to drive the Global Multifunctional Furniture Market

Development of urban housing has forced habitants to prefer smaller spaces, which in turn has increased the demand for furniture that can fit in small spaces and carry out multiple functions. Multifunctional furniture is also gaining popularity and traction among millenials as it is often unique, trendy and modern in design.
