Rentlite’s research pegs the global furniture rental market at anything between $5-8 billion. The idea of ownership has been superseded by the aspiration of better experiences by leasing or sharing resources. The growth in mobility and intra-country migration has led to a large and ever-growing clientele of urban professionals with transferrable jobs and disposable income. In the last decade, leasing/renting of home durables has seen steep growth due to a streamlined market facilitated by digital marketing.
The global furniture market is dominated by domestic furniture accounting for 65% of production value. These consists of beds, closets, and other household furniture items. Followed by office furniture and hotel furniture accounting for 15% each. Office furniture consists of furniture used in corporate office, mainly tables and chairs, whereas hotel furniture is deployed in hotels and are very similar to household furniture with design and finesse. Lastly, furniture parts constitute 5% of production value which constitutes of table bases, closet doors, sofa legs, etc.
The furniture rental market is expected to grow at a robust rate over the next 5 years (2019-2024). The primary factor responsible for the growth is an increase in the number of employers that are incorporating rental furniture into their corporate mobility policies as a core service offering. The practice of renting instead of purchasing furniture has proven to be beneficial for consumers because of lower price with reduced expense and maintenance which will drive the furniture rental market size. The industry is driven by wide ranging macroeconomic factors, such as the number of businesses operating domestically, the unemployment rate and the business sentiment index, all of which are expected to get better during that time frame. Growth in the number of businesses stimulates the demand for office furniture. Moreover, as the unemployment rate falls, demand for office furniture is anticipated to rise, as businesses require furniture for new employees.
