U.S. Office Furniture- Statistics & Facts

Published by Liam O'Connell, Jan 17, 2019
Although it is not often the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of an office, no office is complete without desks, chairs, and a water cooler. Though office furniture seems to have remained more or less unchanged in the last twenty years, there has been a great deal of innovation and growth in the office furniture market. Standing desks, for instance, are a relatively new fixture in office buildings and are perfect for those who prefer not to sit for extended periods of time for health or comfort reasons. In addition, ergonomic chairs and desks are perfect for combating back and wrist pain which plagues so many office workers.

The United States is home to the largest office furniture market in the world, generating over 46 billion dollars in revenue in 2017. The U.S. office furniture market is expected to grow in value from about 11.4 billion U.S. dollars to 14.3 billion dollars by 2025. Some of the leading office furniture companies in North America are Steelcase, Herman Miller, and Haworth. Steelcase generates the majority of its revenue from systems and storage products such as file cabinets and desks, while Herman Miller’s sales are mostly driven by seating products.

The value of furniture imports in the United States was on the rise from 2013 to 2015, but has since leveled off in recent years, resting at around 24 billion dollars as of 2017. The majority of the import value comes from wooden furniture rather than metal furniture. The United States also exported about 156 million U.S. dollars of wooden furniture and 210 million U.S. dollars of metal furniture in 2017.
