The Saudi Arabia Kitchen Furniture market is expected to grow annually at a CAGR of 6.89% during the forecast period (2021 – 2026).
The kitchen is a commonly utilised area in the house and is regarded as the home's central hub. As Saudi Arabian families get smaller and individuals live in smaller apartments, there is an increasing need to maximise space efficiency, which leads to an increase in the demand for kitchen equipment. Kitchens are made up of a variety of cabinets and fixtures that are organised in a systematic way to maximise the utilisation of kitchen space.
The Saudi Arabian kitchen furniture sector has grown to be one of the most vibrant and fastest-growing in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). The country's real estate market is being driven by a growing number of real estate developments and rising demand for residential property, as well as government attempts to expand socioeconomic infrastructure. The demand is addressed by importing furniture products since local producers are experiencing a shortage of raw materials and parts essential for making kitchen furniture products. Foreign players' increasing interest and investment, whether to expand their presence or expand into new emirates, is boosting the country's kitchen furniture business. The demand for online furniture is expanding as internet penetration rises. The media has also played a significant role in the growing demand for furniture. Consumers can acquire new and unique ideas for redecorating their homes from a variety of TV shows and periodicals that focus on kitchen furnishings. E-commerce has played a crucial role in the promotion and advertising of furniture products across the country. In Saudi Arabia, the summer season is popular among buyers for kitchen design because of many events such as weddings and the start of Ramadan. Majorly kitchen items in Saudi Arabia are imported from other countries with prices determined by the overall design of the kitchen.
The abrupt COVID-19 pandemic, which struck the world in the first days of 2020, has drastically altered the kitchen furniture sector. Saudi Arabia, which relies heavily on imports for its furniture, has been severely impacted by supply chain delays and the temporary restriction on global trade. Most of the furniture players manufacture outside of Saudi Arabia and faced shipping issues due to COVID-19.
