CLEVELAND, April 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- US furniture demand at the manufacturers' level is forecast to reach $59.0 billion in 2021, according to Furniture: United States, a report recently released by Freedonia Focus Reports. Sales of institutional furniture are expected to outpace other segments of the industry amid rapid expansion of education and healthcare construction.
Demand is highly cyclical, fluctuating in response to trends in macroeconomic indicators, such as construction and investment activity, employment levels, and consumer confidence.
