Furniture purchase trend in the United Kingdom (UK) 2005-2019

This statistic shows the total annual expenditure on furniture and furnishings in the United Kingdom from 2005 to 2019, based on volume. In 2019, UK households purchased approximately 17 billion British pounds worth of furniture and furnishings, an increase on the previous year of roughly one and a half billion British pounds.
According to results of the 2020 Statista Global Consumer survey, 21 percent of UK consumers have bought furniture and household goods online in the last 12 months, while 32 percent claim to mostly look online for information about these products.

Over the past seven years there has been a decline in the number of furniture manufacturing enterprises in the United Kingdom, but since 2015, numbers have been picking up again.

It seems now that the United Kingdom is importing its furniture from outside of the European Union instead of manufacturing it dometically, with imports reaching 3.7 billion British pounds in 2018. This number has significantly increased since 2003, where only 1.79 billion British pounds worth of furniture goods were imported from non-European countries.
