Scrutinizing the Coronavirus Impact: Eco-Friendly Furniture Sales Prospects Dip as Consumers Focus on Essential Commodities

Eco-friendly furniture manufacturers are likely to incline towards tech innovations to expand their product portfolios in an effort to edge out the competition once the pandemic is brought under control.

ROCKVILLE, MD / ACCESSWIRE / June 23, 2020 / The eco-friendly furniture market is anticipated to rise at a healthy 6% CAGR through the end of the projection period in 2030. The coronavirus pandemic is having a substantial impact on the global economy and has resulted in the temporary closure of businesses around the world, impacting international trade and furniture supply chains. These factors are projected to adversely affect the eco-friendly furniture market in the near term, until restrictions on trade and logistics are removed.

The Fact.MR report states that, a shift in consumer behavior towards using disposable income on essential commodities will also reduce eco-friendly furniture sales. Poor prospects of the housing sector in the short term will also hinder the market. The pandemic, coupled with the lingering effects of the U.S. – China trade war will hold back the eco-friendly furniture industry in the months to come. On the other hand, the growing popularity of green building and construction activities will help in market recovery once the restrictions are relaxed.

“Growing varieties of furniture designs and specifications for myriad applications including outdoors, drawing room, bedroom, and dining, is propelling sales of eco-friendly furniture through online distribution channels. Further, investments in online delivery services, discounts, doorstep delivery, and flexible payment options will propel market growth once the outbreak is bought under control,” says the Fact.MR analyst.
