Ladies and Gentlemen,
I am pleased to present the Polish Furniture Outlook 2011 edition. The situation of the furniture industry is difficult, but definitely better than that provided by the Central Statistical Office. This results we have reached when preparing the second edition of "Polish Furniture Outlook."
Which markets have recovered after the crisis? Which groups of furniture are developing rapidly, and which not? Is it profitable to import furniture? Those are one of the most important issues presented in the report. Output price indices and prices of furniture in the furniture retail sector, profitability and capital expenditures, major manufacturers and major retail chains and many other issues we describe on 68th pages of the report. Based on CSO data, Eurostat, International Monetary Fund and other sources, we have prepared 34 tables and 46 graphs, which in a clear and vivid ways shows the trends and changes in the market. All of this is covered by the expert commentary. It is worth noting that only a comprehensive look at the furniture market in Poland, both in terms of production, exports, imports and private consumption enables us to understand the processes occurring in the industry. This approach allowed to make a statement that shown by GUS 5% drop in the value of sold production of the furniture industry is the result solely of changes in statistical classifications, and the transfer of car seats from chapter 36.1 NACE v1 "Furniture (...)" to chapter 29.32 NACE v2 "Seats for motor vehicles" . Same company, "furniture," according to our calculations, reported nearly 4% increase in sales!
"Polish Furniture Outlook 2011" is a unique study on the Polish market. Experienced after 2010 edition we have prepared a developed and improved report. With full confidence we can recommend it as a tool for both professional furniture manufacturers, retailers and suppliers of components for furniture manufacturers.
