Wood Coatings Market Trends

Growing Furniture Production Worldwide is Driving the Market Growth

  • The wood coating is of the utmost importance in furniture manufacturing, providing visual appeal and protective advantages. Some of the applications and benefits of wood coating in the furniture industry include enhancing visual appeal, protection against daily wear and tear, moisture resistance, UV protection, versatility, and environmental considerations.
  • The global demand for wood coatings is experiencing significant growth as a result of the expanding housing construction, population growth, and rising incomes worldwide. The increased demand for furniture items such as chairs, tables, beds, sofas, shelves, and cupboards is a key driver for this market expansion.
  • For instance, China exhibits a strong demand for furniture due to its large population. The country's substantial consumer base, combined with the growing disposable income of its residents, is fueling the development of the Chinese furniture industry. Customers are willing to invest more in floor coverings and furniture, driven by factors such as urbanization, real estate development, robust GDP growth, and economic stability. These trends contribute to the rising demand for wood coatings in the Chinese market.
  • Moreover, over the five years until 2022, it was predicted that China's Furniture Stores industry would expand at an annualized rate of 3.7%, reaching USD 36.0 billion. In China, there were 5,899 furniture stores as of 2022, a 0.1% rise from 2021. In addition, the National Bureau of Statistics of China reported that during the first four months of 2023, from January to April, the country's retail furniture sales totaled over CNY 47.69 billion (USD 7.09 billion).
  • Furthermore, the furniture rental industry, particularly for office furniture, holds a significant share of India's total furniture market. It is anticipated to reach USD 13 billion by 2025. These factors contribute to the growing demand for wood coatings in the furniture segment of the Indian market.
  • The United States boasts the world's largest furniture market. Increased disposable income has enabled more consumers to purchase new household furniture rather than relying on second-hand items. Major companies such as Ashley Furniture Industries, Ikea, Williams-Sonoma Inc., HNI Corporation, and Herman Miller operate production facilities in the country. For instance, according to US Census Bureau, furniture and home furnishing store sales in the United States amounted to approximately USD 1,41,261 million in 2022, representing an increase from 2021’s sales of USD 1,40,586 million.
  • Moreover, the growing demand for furniture in various countries has prompted companies to expand their presence in the furniture market, thereby driving the demand for wood coatings. For instance, in January 2022, WoodenStreet, a furniture startup, announced an investment of INR 50 crore (~USD 6.7 million) to double its on-ground presence from 45 to 100 stores across the country. The company is also expected to introduce new products, such as smart office furniture and modular kitchen solutions, which can potentially contribute to the growth of the wood coating market in the country.
  • Additionally, IKEA intends to make its largest-ever investment in the American market in 2023 by opening eight new shops and growing its fulfillment network. The company operates 51 stores in the United States.
  • Continuous changes in interior concepts for homes, offices, and apartments within the furniture industry drive innovation and development, particularly in terms of designs, sizes, and colors.
  • These factors are expected to enhance furniture production volumes worldwide. Wood coatings are extensively utilized in the furniture industry, and the increasing production volume of furniture globally further fuels the growth of the market under study.

The Asia-Pacific Region is Expected to Dominate the Market

  • The Asia-Pacific region holds a prominent share of the global market. China boasts the world's largest furniture industry, which is booming due to rising domestic and overseas demand.
  • Both the furniture and construction industries in India have been witnessing major growth; increasing investments in the residential and commercial sectors and government initiatives such as "Housing for All" are driving this growth. The entry of major furniture companies, like IKEA, Bed Bath & Beyond Inc., and Wayfair Inc., is also expected to advance the expansion of the furniture business in the region. Additionally, there has been a predominant boom of public and private investments in the construction sectors of ASEAN countries in recent years. These factors are projected to aid Asia-Pacific's dominance of the market during the forecast period.
  • The increasing investments in the residential and commercial sectors, along with strategic initiatives by the Indian government, are expected to boost the furniture market in the country, which, in turn, is anticipated to drive the wood coatings market in India.
  • In India, the residential sector is the primary driver of demand for wooden furniture. This is because people use wooden furniture in their homes for a variety of purposes, such as cupboards, decorating, and so on. This is a rising demand for wooden furniture, such as dining sets, tables, and chairs, which is expected to continue in the coming years.
  • According to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), the real estate market is expected to reach USD 1 trillion by 2030, up from USD 200 billion in 2021, which is expected to propel the demand for home interior products and furniture in India.
  • Moreover, the Indian government, in its Union Budget 2022-23, allocated INR 48,000 Crores (~USD 5,849.91 million) for its ‘PM Aawas Yojana’ scheme, reiterating its commitment to implementing ‘Housing for All,’ which aims to build 80,00,000 affordable homes for the urban and rural poor in FY 2022-23.
  • The construction sector in Japan is expected to expand at a moderate pace in the country over the next five years, owing to the increasing investments in public and private infrastructure and commercial projects. According to the forecasts given by Japan’s Cabinet Office, the sector will contribute JPY 30,460 billion (USD 211.46 billion) to the GDP by the end of 2022. The GDP shares in 2023 and 2024 are expected to increase, reaching JPY 30,973 billion (~USD 215.02 billion) and JPY 31,500 billion (USD 218.68 billion), respectively.
  • Furthermore, Japan is a major area in the field of skyscrapers and high-rise buildings. The country hosts various high-rise buildings (nearly 290), with Tokyo being a major hub for such buildings. The planning and construction of such buildings are witnessing decent growth in Japan in the short term, supporting the growth of the market studied in the coming years.
  • Many luxury apartments and residential complexes are under construction in Japan. For instance, Mitsubishi State is constructing Japan’s tallest building which is to comprise 50 luxury apartments, each of which will be able to generate USD 43,000 per month of rent. The project is being built near the Tokyo station and will reach completion by 2027.
  • Such trends in the construction industry are likely to augment demand for furniture and other wooden fixtures. According to data from the Japan Ministry of Finance and Japan Furniture Industry Development Association, the total import value of furniture to Japan reached JPY 776.72 billion (USD 6.93 billion) in 2022, from JPY 660.97 billion (USD 5.89 billion) in 2021, thereby driving the demand for wood coatings in the studied market.
  • These factors are likely to help the Asia-Pacific region to dominate the market during the forecast period.
