Production of quality Austrian furniture last year increased to nearly 3 billion euros. Total furniture exports were worth over a billion euros.

Austrian furniture manufacturers recorded a production increase of 9.5% to EUR 2.95 bn last year. This high growth was achieved primarily because of domestic demand and increasing business in the Austrian construction industry. Exported furniture was worth EUR 1.14bn. The top target country was once again Germany. With a volume of EUR 347 million, the neighbouring country accounts for the lion’s share of furniture exports.
