Industry Insights

The global outdoor furniture market size was valued at USD 16.8 billion in 2018 and is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 5.9% over the forecast period. Growing real estate industry and the urban population is the key factors driving the market. Moreover, increasing per capita and disposable income plays an important in fueling industry growth.   

Furthermore, improved consumer spending power and a growing trend of traveling have resulted in increasing tourists across the world.

This, in turn, leads to an increasing number of hotels, resorts, public gardens, and open spaces, thereby propelling the demand for outdoor furniture.

U.S. outdoor furniture market

Outdoor furniture finds its application majorly in residential, hotels, and resorts. Demand for outdoor furniture is growing in developing countries like India, China, Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand. Selection of a furniture depends on various factors such as weather proof, insect resistance, fungus and pest repulsion, and crack proof. Manufacturers are shifting towards eco-friendly materials such as moso bamboo, which is stronger than oak wood.

Usage of outdoor furniture is increasing at a faster rate in the commercial sector. Growing trend of traveling, exploration of new places, and changing lifestyles are the key factors boosting the growth of the sector. Several manufacturers are concentrating on the commercial sector due to the aforementioned factors in order to maximize their sales.

Material Type Insights

On the basis of material type, the product is segmented into wood, plastic, and metal. Wood is the most widely used material type for making furniture. Wood dominated the market with a share of more than 60.0% in 2018. Wood finds its application in both residential and commercial end-use sectors due to its features including durability, comfort, and rich and natural look.

Global outdoor furniture market

Plastic accounted for more than 15.0% share of the overall revenue in 2018. It is highly preferred among the consumer groups with an economic budget, as the material requires minimal maintenance and is lightweight. Presence of substitutes like eco-friendly products is restraining the growth of the plastic segment.

End-use Insights

Growing population, increasing per capita income, westernization, and changing lifestyle are the prominent factors driving the residential segment. The commercial segment is the fastest growing segment, registering a CAGR of 6.2% over the forecast period. Growing trend of travelling and exploring has led to an increase in the number of hotels and resorts thus, positively impacting the overall growth of the segment.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market in 2018 with almost 35% share of the overall revenue, registering a CAGR of 5.4% over the forecast period. The U.S. is the leading consumer of outdoor furniture in North America, thereby boosting the regional growth. Presence of companies like Brown Jordan and Forever Patio, innovations in the market, and willingness of the consumers to spend on the product are the key factors fueling the market growth in the region.

Asia Pacific is a prominent regional market, expanding at a CAGR of 6.3% in the forecast period. Developing countries like India and China and increasing tourism in countries like Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand are the key factors fueling the market growth in the region.

For instance, in 2016, Thailand witnessed 32.6 million international tourist arrivals.

Leading manufacturers such as Inter Ikea Group started providing their services in countries like India and China.
