Follow us on LinkedIn - Given the stress and anxiety associated with modern fast paced and heady lifestyles, people across the world are taking recourse in the peace and serenity offered by their own backyards. From outdoor cooking, garden barbecue and grills to backyard entertainment of guests, the active outdoor life led by modern consumers is helping generate attractive opportunities for growth in the market. Outdoor furniture comprises outdoor tables, chairs, park benches, beach umbrella, hammocks, swing, poolside furniture, lawn chairs, beach chairs, folding camping furniture, picnic tables, stools, ottomans, lounge chairs, umbrellas and parasols, sunbeds, and balcony sets, among others. Consumer preferences are shifting from simple outdoor furniture to more sophisticated and modern designs. Leveraging the opportunities offered by the trend, manufacturers are introducing furniture in various shapes, colours, sizes and materials. The increasing preference for outdoor cooking is driving demand for trendy and comfortable deep seat dining, and fire pit tables.
As stated by the new market research report on Outdoor Furniture, the United States and Europe represent major markets supported by high per capita income, large base of affluent aging baby boomers, and high concentration of resorts, clubs, and other types of recreational venues. While the perception of gardens and lawns as a place for relaxation fuels the market in developed countries, increasing disposable income acts as a major driver in developing markets. Improving lifestyles and elevation of gardens to a symbol of social status are driving growth in these markets. Robust construction activity across Asia-Pacific is also expected to spearhead global growth with a CAGR of 9.0% over the analysis period.
Another important trend in the market is online shopping. Premium furniture and big-ticket models are extensively searched and purchased over the internet. In addition to using the Internet for researching available products, consumers are also purchasing online. The trend is dissipating the conventional belief that furniture is a ‘look and feel’ purchase. Changing consumer buying behaviour is increasingly made clear by the fact that sofas, patio furniture and tables are being bought online. Key reasons for the growing popularity of online purchase of furniture include lower taxes, free shipping and transportation, better price deals and most importantly, convenience offered by the comfort of shopping from home.
