Drivers & Restraints-
The Rental Furniture Industry is expected to grow in Residential & Commercial Infrastructure Settings
Growing residential and commercial infrastructure will support the need for services in these contexts, resulting in an increase in furniture rentals. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), housing sales in the U.S. increased by 5.7% from January 2019 to January 2020. Households nowadays prefer to purchase subscription-based furniture rental services in order to use different furnishing pieces on a regular basis. This factor contributes to the growth of the furniture rental facility by assisting them in meeting their home decoration needs.
The market for rental furniture and other household products is mostly limited by a lack of awareness about furnishing rental services among the world’s elderly population. Furthermore, the development of new competitors with identical product offerings aimed at rural customers provides a threat to the important players eventually limiting the furniture rental service market growth.
On the basis of material, the furniture rental service industry is fragmented into wood, plastic, metal, glass, and others. On the basis of application, the market is split into residential and commercial. Geographically, the market is classified into South America, North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and the Middle East & Africa.
North America to Lead the Global Market
The Asia Pacific area dominates the growing popularity of the furniture rental service among the population in emerging cities like India and China. Furthermore, as the number of urban migrants in these areas grow, so will the need for services among these migratory populations, propelling the region’s growth. In addition, the region’s renowned enterprises are expanding, opening up new opportunities for the industry to thrive.
The market in Europe has seen phenomenal growth owing to the population’s shifting preference for choosing sustainably-made furnishings. People are becoming more aware of the negative health effects of furnishings made of low-grade plastics, which pushes them to acquire eco-friendly furniture. In addition, furniture made from natural reusable materials such as bamboo and wooden pallets is likely to be in high demand in the region. Europeans’ need for services is supported by changing home decoration preferences and rising furniture replacement trends. Furthermore, the growing number of commercial and residential infrastructure settings in Europe, as well as considerable government investments in the development of housing facilities in Germany and the U.K., contribute to the expansion of rental services in Europe. According to the Committee on Climate Change Organization’s figures, the U.K. had 29 million houses as of 2019. By 2022, the U.K. government plans to build 1.5 million new domestic living spaces.
North America accounts for a significant furniture rental service market share because a growing working population with startups and innovative business models choose to rent furniture to meet their needs. According to data given by the U.S. Census Bureau, 4.3 million Americans have filed papers to create new businesses in 2020. Additionally, overall employment applications for American startups and businesses climbed by 24% over the course of the year. Furthermore, the strong presence of major furniture rental companies in the U.S., such as CORT, Feather, AFT, and others, in their supply chain and warehouses, contributes to the region’s growth.
The furniture rental service rise of the Middle East & Africa region is aided by increased awareness of furniture rental platforms among Saudi Arabia and UAE families. Because many people are relocating to metropolitan regions, South America is expected to have a significant presence, resulting in the steady introduction of new furniture rental platforms. People moving to cities have exposure to evolving industry trends and have access to numerous digital platforms for meeting their needs, which is likely to drive product demand across the region.
Key Players to Adopt Several Growth Strategies
To increase their operating capital, significant businesses are now focusing on forming agreements with financial institutions. They also focus on diversifying their furniture rental products in order to extend their global footprint. For example, Feather, a rental furniture company based in the U.S., received a USD 30 million Series B investment from Credit Suisse Group AG, an investment banking firm, in August 2020 to extend its product and service offerings abroad.
Key Industry Development-
July 2021: Furlenco, India’s biggest furniture rental provider, has launched “UNLMTD by Furlenco,” an annual subscription service that provides Indian consumers with hassle-free relocation and free furniture and appliance shifting solutions.
