Manufacture of Furniture in South Africa
South Africa’s furniture manufacturing sector is expected to experience a difficult 2023 as demand for furniture slows and consumers come under increasing pressure from high interest rates and a slowing economy. The industry faces a number of challenges including loadshedding, skills shortages and a lack of raw materials, which are driving up input costs. Industry role players said the industry has been experiencing a slowdown since the beginning of 2022 following a “mini-boom” after the lifting of some pandemic restrictions from June 2020.
Key Trends and issues
Retailers have shifted to procuring more locally-manufactured furniture following the high costs of shipping and ports delays. There is an increasing trend to design flat-pack furniture and home office furniture. Local and global logistics challenges are driving up the cost of importing furniture, which favours local production, although raw material prices have risen significantly as it has become more expensive to source certain inputs. Sustainable furniture made from recycled plastic or reused wood is growing in importance. Sales of office furniture have been affected by more employees working from home.
Exports of cabinets, beds, shelves and tables grew strongly in 2022. Mattresses, upholstered seats and bedroom furniture are the three furniture categories where exports have grown the fastest. The majority of South Africa’s furniture exports go to the Southern African Development Community.
