Market Overview

However, with various economies steadily lifting their respective lockdowns, a steady recovery trend is expected to be seen in the upcoming years, with the office furniture industry showcasing a decent jump in revenues.

The office furniture market in UK is anticipated to witness strong growth in the forecast period. Some of the major factors attributing to this growth are the increasing number of commercial spaces in the country, and the emerging trends for office spaces such as flex offices and coworking spaces.
