The European market for RTA furniture


A detailed analysis of the ready-to-assemble (RTA) furniture sector in Europe published by CSIL.

With a value amounting to over EUR 15 billion, the ready-to assemble (RTA) furniture industry throughout Europe outperformed the fully assembled one, recording a growth of about 17% (2016-2021). Poland and Germany are the leading producing countries. Over the last twenty years, Eastern Europe eroded market shares to some traditional furniture manufacturing countries.

On the demand side, the consumption of RTA furniture in Europe recorded a cumulative growth of +20% in the time span 2016-2021. Germany, the UK, France, and Italy are the largest markets for RTA furniture in Europe, accounting for over one half of the total market.
