 U.S. ergonomic chair market size, by product, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

As economic activity slowed and people shifted to remote working during the early stages of the COVID-19 epidemic, there was a decline in the market for office furniture. As a result, in 2020, product demand for office furniture suppliers in the nation decreased. However, COVID-19 increased the trend toward remote work, and a number of businesses required their staff to do so. The growing practice of working from home has changed the ergonomic chair market to adapt to shifting consumer product and supply chain preferences.

Manufacturers put a lot of effort into creating multipurpose ergonomic chairs that enhance comfort during lengthy workdays and improve space usage. Modern ergonomic chairs are in more demand as businesses look to foster productive employee collaboration to increase productivity. The demand for affordable and comfortable amenities in economies has caused a change in office furniture and interior arrangements in recent years.

Increasing capital investments in office infrastructure, primarily driven by the development of corporate hubs in the regions, is expected to generate the need for office furniture like ergonomic chairs during the forecast period. In 2020, according to the Economic Impact Study commissioned by the Building Owners and Managers Association of the U.S. (BOMA), the establishment of business offices in the U.S. is increasing. The study also revealed that nearly 25,000 square feet of private-sector office buildings are served by BOMA’s local associations in the U.S.

Though international manufacturers may be more competitive in terms of price, domestic manufacturers offer critical advantages such as shorter lead times and product customizations. However, imports have become predominant for made-to-stock varieties of office furniture sold by retailers, as the price is among the most important factors influencing purchasing decisions in this market.

Company-owned exclusive stores, retail outlets, and other types of brick-and-mortar stores significantly contribute to the total product sales in the market. However, online sales are increasing with the rising influence of social media, through which opinions and experiences are being shared digitally at a high rate. Thus, manufacturers are focusing on enhancing their online presence as well as offering valuable after-sales services to enhance the consumer’s online shopping experience.

The market players face stiff competition from each other as some design innovative and attractive ergonomic chairs and have a large customer base. The key players operating in the market are taking major initiatives to launch different types of ergonomic chairs to cater to the rising demand from consumers. Additionally, showcasing their portfolio on e-commerce and online websites has emerged as one of the core business strategies for key companies.

These products are available in various lengths, designs, finishes, diameters, quality, and price ranges. Stainless steel is a low-maintenance material made from carbon, iron, and other metal alloys.

 Global ergonomic chair market share, by material, 2022 (%)

The plastic segment is estimated to have with a CAGR of more than 7.5% over the forecast period. Due to the apparent rise in the amount of single-use plastic waste, the use of recycled plastic from ocean garbage in the manufacture of outdoor furniture has increased. Plastic garbage production peaked at 367 million metric tonnes in 2020 and is projected to skyrocket in the years to come. As a result, several furniture makers include recycled plastic in their products to achieve sustainable aims.

End-user Insights

In terms of revenue, the commercial segment held the largest share of more than 61% in 2022 and is expected to affect the market growth positively. People have been prompted to create a workplace environment that is comparable to that which exists in offices as a result of the adoption of this new way of working. In the upcoming years, this is anticipated to have a beneficial effect on the growth of the home office furniture industry. The number of people working from home has expanded over the past few years, which has raised the demand for home offices.

The residential segment is estimated to grow at the fastest CAGR of more than 8% over the forecast period.Strong growth in commercial & office building construction and remodeling activities is likely to boost product demand across the U.S. Historically, replacement activities have played a minor role in boosting product demand, largely due to product durability and lack of innovation. However, with the growing inclination toward more open, collaborative workspaces, replacements are likely to witness a considerable increase during the forecast period.

Regional Insights

North America held the largest revenue share of 31.6% in 2022. The increasing population and improved standard of living have spurred the growth prospects of the construction sector in the region in the past few years.
