The European homeware sector is a €40bn industry, which saw strong growth across the lockdowns of 2020 and 2021 as consumers invested in renovations and home offices. As the world has returned to normal, markets have consolidated and growth in many areas has slowed due to inflation and rising house prices.
We also examine Europe’s online homeware consumers who are young, increasingly digital and driven as much by fashion as they are necessity and use online, mobile and social media as part of an increasingly complex path to purchase. As younger customers become homemakers, speedy delivery, ethical sourcing, sustainable production and delivery are becoming key drivers of this once thought of “staid” sector.
