Italy is the fourth largest market in Western Europe, providing about 11% of WE demand. Italy is a closed market, with imported home furniture satisfying only 18% of domestic demand (Western Europe: about 51%). In recent years, the weight of Chinese imports has been decreasing in favour of Central Eastern and Western European suppliers. The peculiarity of the Italian furniture distribution system, compared to the other Western European countries, is the large share of sales made through small scale independent retailers, even though their market share is continuously being eroded by the specialist large-scale retailers.
