- Comprehensive analysis covering inflation, volume and sales growth for furniture and floorcoverings sub categories.

Research and analysis highlights:
The market will recover slowly, increasing by 4.7% between 2009 and 2014. Furniture and floorcoverings will be 2010's worst performing sector as the housing market, pivotal to the sector's performance, struggles. Growth will return in 2011 and accelerate as the property market improves and shoppers look to replace and redecorate.
The larger specialists in both furniture and floorcoverings will be the strongest growing channel, presenting a more competitive offer and expanding quickly with some receiving the backing of private equity groups. They will also benefit from independents exiting the market as they struggle to compete on terms of price and range.
The strongest sub category in the market is beds and bedroom furniture which increased by 15.7% between 2009 and 2014. This will be driven by the more needs-based nature of beds, which directly impact upon a customer's health and are therefore unlikely to be deferred. Redecorating of bedrooms later in the period will also drivet growth.
