Report Overview                    

The U.S. office furniture market size was valued at USD 14.0 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.3% from 2022 to 2030. One of the major factors impacting the market growth over the forecast period is the increasing building of households, offices, and commercial complexes.

Customers are attracted to smart, comfy, and flexible furniture design because of the easy and quick delivery alternatives.

In addition, the rapid creation of IT parks and commercial zones has resulted in an increase in the number of corporate offices, resulting in a need for contemporary office furniture all over the world. Organizations are also creating informal office areas to improve colleague communications, collaborative environments, and social connections. As a result of this trend, office furniture makers have begun to produce intelligently designed furniture. Aside from that, due to technological advancements and an increase in the number of cases of health issues caused by employees' sedentary lifestyles, there has been an increase in the demand for smart workplace furniture that provides internet connectivity while also promoting better posture and movement support. During the projection period, this factor is projected to have a substantial impact on the demand for office furniture.

Moreover, one of the primary factors propelling the market growth is the widespread adoption of the work-from-home (WFH) paradigm as a result of the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. Because of the unexpected spread of the infection and the statewide lockdown, many people are continuing to work from home, which is boosting the demand for comfortable and sturdy office furniture for home offices.

Furthermore, to strengthen their distribution network, many key players in the office furniture sector are forming agreements with e-commerce retail stores. The demand for office furniture grew in tandem with the exponential growth of commercial buildings and service sector jobs. Another factor projected to boost the market growth is an increase in the number of start-ups and corporate expansions. The market growth is expected to be fueled by the increased demand for office space and employment.

COVID-19 has expedited a number of preexisting trends in the commercial property market surrounding health and wellbeing, activity-based working, flexibility, and the need for greater space use, in the American market, according to an ARUP report published in June 2020 titled Future of offices: in a post-pandemic world. The commercial offer is also being reshaped by sustainability, smart buildings, and the digital workplace. Taken together, these trends and changes will have a significant impact on the kind of workplaces that will be required in the aftermath of a pandemic.

Distribution Channel Insights

The offline distribution channel segment led the market and accounted for a revenue share of over 65.0% in 2021. The online distribution channel segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR of 9.9% from 2022 to 2030. The segment is driven by the emergence of e-commerce retail channels and online furniture merchants. To extend their customer base, market participants are developing new digital platforms.

For instance, Herman Miller launched a fully redesigned retail website in May 2021. In addition to the chat feature, the site features a fresh design and more storytelling content for goods, designers, and the brand. It also incorporates powerful AI-driven product recommendations as well as improved customer-centric website navigation that makes it easier to find exactly what a person is looking for. Furniture e-retailers have noticed a significant increase in demand since e-commerce deliveries of non-essentials were authorized in the fourth phase of the lockdown, roughly two months after the lockdown began. This includes not only internet sellers but also rental companies.

The seating segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 25.0% in 2021. Proper seating has become increasingly important as employees spend more than 8-10 hours every day at work. To minimize illness and fatigue, office chairs must be designed according to scientific principles as the optimal posture while working has a significant impact on health. In the U.S., there is a growing need for ergonomic seats, which aid in improving staff productivity, efficiency, and workplace aesthetics.

Customers in the U.S. want to purchase high-quality furniture that not only looks good but is also composed of high-quality materials. When it came to selecting office furniture in the U.S. in 2021, about a third of buyers prioritized desks and tables. As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, which resulted in widespread lockdowns and stay-at-home orders across the U.S., the demand for office furniture used in the home increased.

Obesity is also a factor that is causing manufacturers to change the design of office furniture, especially chairs and other seating products. Obesity now affects about 40% of adults in the U.S. in 2021, up from 15% in 1990. As organizations attempt to accommodate greater body sizes in both dimension and weight, rising obesity levels have had an impact on furniture design, particularly for office chairs. The average office chair can support up to 300 pounds, whereas bariatric chairs may support up to 600 pounds. Taller chair backs and broader seats and bases are common features of bariatric chairs.
