France is the third largest Western European market, providing about 15% of WE demand, and the third importer, absorbing 15% of WE imports. France is an open market, with imported home furniture satisfying 58% of domestic demand. China accounts for about one fifth of French furniture imports, followed by Italy, Germany and Belgium. During the last six years the share of furniture distributed by specialist retailers has increased slightly. However, within this category a massive change occurred, in that the large-scale retailers increased their share to the detriment of the small independent retailers. The market is characterised by an increase in the level of concentration due to the good performances and acquisitions of giants such as IKEA and Conforama.
