Ergonomic Chair Market

Increasing Investments in Capital

Increasing capital investments in office infrastructure, primarily driven by the development of corporate hubs in the regions, are anticipated to increase the demand for office furniture such as ergonomic chairs over the forecast period. The Economic Impact Study commissioned by the Building Owners and Managers Association of the United States (BOMA) indicates that the establishment of business offices in the United States will increase by 2020. In addition, the study revealed that nearly 25,000 square feet of private office space are served by BOMA's local associations in the United States.

Expanding Distribution Channel Scope to Promote Market Expansion

Although foreign manufacturers may be more competitive in terms of price, domestic manufacturers offer significant advantages, such as shorter lead times and product customization. However, imports have come to dominate the market for made-to-stock office furniture sold by retailers, as the price is one of the most significant factors influencing purchasing decisions in this industry. Exclusive stores, retail outlets, and other types of brick-and-mortar stores owned by the company contribute significantly to the market's total product sales. However, online sales are increasing as a result of the increasing influence of social media, through which opinions and experiences are rapidly shared digitally. Consequently, manufacturers are focusing on enhancing their online presence and providing valuable after-sales services to improve the online shopping experience of consumers.

Customers favor more convenient methods of purchasing ergonomic office chairs by shifting to e-commerce. A consumer's purchasing decision is hindered by a lack of detail transparency and inconsistent pricing. As the world shifts toward digital business, the majority of transactions now take place on digital platforms. It is an opportunity for businesses to interact with consumers and identify their desires. The customer will be encouraged to make a purchase if the product's specifications and price are clearly communicated, with no hidden fees.

Partnerships With Multinational Corporations to Increase Market Opportunities

The production companies collaborate with multinational corporations to increase sales. It is a method by which employees utilize office chairs, and if they experience the benefits, they may decide to purchase ergonomic office chairs for their homes. As a result of the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, remote work has become widespread and an integral part of the employee's daily routine.

Innovations to Enhance Market Traction

The advent of ergonomic office chairs with additional functions, such as large armrests, massage vibration, heated pads, and others, can benefit employees in every way possible. These new features are likely to change the game in the ergonomic office chair market, resulting in increased demand. All employees enjoy comfort, which contributes to their productivity.

Swivel Chair Segment Took Over 50% of the Market in 2023

In 2023, the swivel chair segment commanded approximately 50% of the market's total revenue. Swivel chairs greatly facilitate social interaction. With an ergonomic swivel chair, one can swivel and interact in their home office or workplace without putting undue strain on their necks. The swivel chair is the best option for expansive rooms. Adjustable ergonomic chairs are anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 8% between 2023 and 2031. Adjustable office chairs allow customers to tailor their sitting experience to their preferences, ensuring their comfort throughout the day. With proper ergonomics, you can avoid aches in the neck, shoulders, and lower back, among other types of pain caused by prolonged inactivity.

Steel Segment to be the Fastest Growing Market

The steel segment is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of approximately 8.3% in terms of revenue over the forecast period of 2024 to 2032. Numerous companies provide an extensive selection of stainless-steel outdoor seating, which simplifies the fitting requirements for residential and commercial outdoor seating. These items come in a variety of lengths, styles, finishes, diameters, qualities, and price points. Stainless steel is an alloy of carbon, iron, and other metals that is low-maintenance. Due to a thin oxide layer on its surface, chromium protects against rust and corrosion, contributing significantly to its strength.

It is anticipated that the plastic segment will have a CAGR greater than 7.5% over the forecast period. Due to the apparent increase in single-use plastic waste, there has been an increase in the use of recycled plastic from ocean waste in the production of outdoor furniture. Plastic waste production peaked in 2020 at 367 million metric tonnes and is expected to skyrocket in the coming years. As a result, numerous furniture manufacturers incorporate recycled plastic into their products in order to achieve sustainable goals.

Commercial Segment Takes the Lion’s Share

In terms of revenue, the commercial segment accounted for more than 60% of the market in 2023 and is anticipated to positively influence the market expansion. As a result of the implementation of this new method of working, individuals have been prompted to create a work environment comparable to that of an office. This is anticipated to have a positive impact on the growth of the home office furniture industry in the coming years. In recent years, the number of people working from home has increased, which has increased the demand for home offices. The residential segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate over the forecast period, with a CAGR of over 8%. Strong growth in commercial and office building construction and remodeling is anticipated to increase product demand in the United States. Due to product durability and lack of innovation, replacement activities have historically played a minor role in boosting product demand. Nonetheless, as the trend toward more open, collaborative workspaces continues to grow, replacements are expected to increase significantly during the forecast period.

North America Remains as the Global Leader

In 2023, North America held the largest revenue share at 32%. In recent years, the increasing population and improved standard of living have boosted the construction industry's growth prospects in the region. In addition, the growing awareness of the impact of consumer decisions on individual health, sitting habits, and the environment are steadily driving up the demand for ergonomic chairs in the region. The Asia-Pacific region is projected to grow at a CAGR of 9.5% between 2023 and 2031. In the coming years, it is anticipated that increased investment in the construction sector and the development of smart city initiatives will generate new opportunities for the ergonomic chair market. In addition, the rising per capita income in developing Asia-Pacific nations would increase demand.
