In 2012 we bought more furniture than a year ago.

According to the data presented in CSO publication ‘ Household budgets in 2012’ the average monthly expenditures on furniture in households – per capita – amounted to 11,77 PLN in 2012. The number of inhabitants in Poland was about 38 542 thousand of people from preliminary studies.

B+R Studio based on own, previously made studies, estimated that the furniture market value of individual clients in 2012 will achieve 5 billion 639 million PLN. According to official  CSO data, the value of domestic furniture market in Poland was 5 billion 443 million PLN. It means, that B+R Studio indicated on biggest about 200 million PLN growth of this market  in 2012.

Market value in 2011 was 5 188 million and it was the value of gross consumer expenditures ( including VAT and margin).

Provided that industry can note a growth, we expect that in 2013  on individual clients market will occur a limitation of furniture expenditures to the level from 2011. It is because the lower number of new apartments and building permissions.
