Analyst Opinion

The Furniture market in New Zealand is experiencing significant growth and development in recent years.

Customer preferences:
Customers in New Zealand have shown a strong preference for modern and minimalist furniture designs. They are increasingly seeking furniture that is not only functional but also aesthetically pleasing and fits well with their contemporary lifestyles. Additionally, customers are becoming more conscious of the environmental impact of their purchases and are actively seeking sustainable and eco-friendly furniture options.

Trends in the market:
One of the key trends in the furniture market in New Zealand is the rise of online shopping. With the increasing availability of online retailers and the convenience of shopping from home, more and more customers are opting to purchase furniture online. This trend has been further accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has led to a surge in online shopping across all sectors. As a result, traditional brick-and-mortar furniture stores are facing increasing competition and are being forced to adapt to the changing market dynamics. Another notable trend in the market is the growing demand for multifunctional furniture. With the increasing population density and limited living spaces in urban areas, customers are looking for furniture that can serve multiple purposes and maximize the use of limited space. This has led to an increase in the popularity of furniture pieces such as sofa beds, storage ottomans, and modular shelving units.

Local special circumstances:
New Zealand's unique geography and natural resources play a significant role in the furniture market. The country is known for its abundant supply of high-quality timber, which is a key material in furniture production. This has allowed local furniture manufacturers to produce high-quality, locally sourced furniture that appeals to environmentally conscious customers. Additionally, New Zealand's strong outdoor lifestyle and emphasis on outdoor living spaces have created a demand for outdoor furniture that can withstand the country's variable weather conditions.

Underlying macroeconomic factors:
The strong growth in the furniture market in New Zealand can be attributed to several underlying macroeconomic factors. The country has experienced steady economic growth in recent years, leading to increased consumer spending power. This has allowed customers to invest in higher-quality furniture and make more frequent purchases. Furthermore, the government's focus on housing and infrastructure development has led to a rise in construction activity, which in turn has increased the demand for furniture. In conclusion, the furniture market in New Zealand is witnessing a period of growth and development driven by customer preferences for modern and sustainable designs, the rise of online shopping, and the demand for multifunctional furniture. The country's unique geography and outdoor lifestyle also contribute to the market's growth. Additionally, underlying macroeconomic factors such as economic growth and construction activity further support the expansion of the furniture market in New Zealand.
