The top three drivers and trends propelling the global recliner sofa market are discussed below:

Growing demand for luxury and premium recliner sofas among the middle-class population

The increase in disposable income in developing economies is expected to generate potential demand for premium products in the furniture market. The rapid economic growth in developing countries such as China, India, the UAE, and Brazil has increased disposable income among the middle-income population, which has emerged as the target population for premium consumer goods, including recliner sofas over the last few years. A recent study on the emerging consumer behavior residing in developing economies suggests that middle-income consumers are willing to spend more on leading and intermediate brands.

The demand for recliner sofas is expected to be generated by the high- and middle-income population. The magnitude of opportunities in the emerging class has already induced multinational players to target emerging countries such as India, China, and Brazil with their products. In 2016, the middle-class spending was about $35 trillion globally; the high spending power of this population is expected to be a major contributor to the global recliner sofa market, which, in turn, will drive the growth of global furniture market.

Urbanization and growing demand for furnished apartments

Urbanization is expected to reach 68% by 2050. In 2018, approximately 55% of the global population lived in urban areas. The growing urban population is expected to propel the growth of upholstery furniture, including recliner sofas, which, in turn, will drive the overall demand for the furniture market. The development of better infrastructure, commercial office spaces, airports, and hospitals will demand better furniture, which will boost the revenue of the global recliner sofa market. North America is the most urbanized region with 82% of its population living in urban regions and Africa reported the lowest urbanization with 43%.

The demand for fully furnished apartments is rising globally. Millennial and baby boomers are mostly renting apartments as they are changing their lifestyles. Furnished apartments play a pivotal role in the process. Most furnished apartments are equipped with recliner sofas due to their comfort and mobility. Mobility, location, upscale décor, and flexible leases are the driving factors for recliner sofas to be installed in furnished apartments.

Growing tourism and hospitality industries

A booming tourism and hospitality sector is propelling the demand for premium furniture, including recliner sofas. Globally, the hotel industry accounted for a share of around 15% in the global recliner sofa market in 2018. The rising disposable income among the population and the high preference among millennial to spend on luxury services rather than goods are mainly driving the growth of the furniture market. The integral part of customer satisfaction in the hospitality industry is achieved by using luxury and premium furniture and equipment for a better experience and pleasant stay.
