Global Foldable Furniture Market Overview

Foldable furniture includes the furniture that can be folded into a shape or position and utilizes less space. The history of the folding furniture can be dated back to the 19th century. The 19th century saw the emergence of the tremendous growth of the cities with immigrants flooding the United States (U.S.). Many immigrants started moving to the cities to get jobs in the new, developing industries. The shift was rapid with people leaving the rural areas to live in the crowded and the busy city. The population of major cities doubled and even tripled during the 1900s. With the fast paced urbanization, the industrial revolution, many people flocked to the cities and couldn’t afford proper housing. This resulted in the growth of apartment or small-space living.  Even today, the majority of the apartments do not contain much space for the average person of family. The foldable furniture includes beds, tables and most importantly, the chair. Folding chairs only take up the space when they are needed and can be stored in a closet when they are not in use. A combination of the portable, lightweight and easily storable qualities has created an appeal among the general population. Today, folding chairs are the required for picnic, outdoor event, or family gathering. The folding furniture can be a great saver for an apartment or cramped house. For example, typically, a bed is only used during the short time of the night but, it takes up a large amount of space during the day. The bed that can be fold up in the wall that turns and reveals a bookshelf, can save much space. More open space will be available, which is essential helpful in the tiny space of an apartment. Many people living in the apartments can save space with the foldable furniture and at the same time can have better living conditions and improve effective usage of space.

Moreover, the folding furniture manufacturers are trying to cater to the metropolitan ways of life of consumers and are adding appealing features to the furniture. Therefore, the manufacturers in order to meet the rising needs of the consumers are diversifying their product portfolio. Their furniture now includes the various attributes that are aesthetically appealing and light weight, and thus supplementing the growth of the global foldable furniture market. However, the market growth is hampered by the rising prices of the raw materials such as leather, foam and wood. In addition, the costs of coating and finishing have also increased which has increased the price of the furniture in the U.S. and China. Moreover, the rising prices of the foam and fiber may also hamper the growth of the market.

The folding-furniture industry in Asia Pacific would be driven by the growth in population and smaller living areas. As for the Europe, the space saving furniture is gaining popularity, which has led to the expansion across the region.  For instance, Italian designed small coffee table can be expanded into dinner table and a beautiful wall that spins 180º  and then unfolds into a queen-sized bed with the help of hydraulic mechanism. These innovations within the folding furniture market are expected to drive the Europe folding furniture market during the forecast period.
