The EU furniture industry is a labor-intensive sector dominated by SMEs, employing around 1 million workers in 130.000 companies, with an annual turnover of around 110 billion € and responsible for 1⁄4 of the world’s furniture (Eurostat). A study of the DG Enterprise and Industry (2014) shows that, over the last years, the European furniture industry has faced challenges related to increasing raw materials and labor costs, an aging workforce and difficulties in attracting younger workers. Reconversion of the industry by applying circularity has the potential to tackle these challenges, through repairing, refurbishment and remanufacture, allowing value recovery, economic growth and job creation within the European furniture industry, while saving on resources and the environment.
