Cost saving opportunities in the global furniture and furnishings market

The adoption of various cost-optimization levers helps buyers of furniture and furnishings realize direct cost savings and enhance category management and value benefits (including reduced procurement complexities).

Technavio procurement experts have segmented the cost saving opportunities in the global furniture and furnishings market into the following value-enhancement opportunities:

  • Adoption of technology
  • Supplier Competition
  • Adoption of negotiation strategies
  • Optimization of procurement practices
  • Unbundling of services

Adoption of technology

Adoption of electrical sanders and table saws minimize the effort put into each piece of furniture while providing an enhanced finish to the final products in a shorter period.

Additionally, using CAD furniture software provides increased flexibility in terms of product design, aiding the manufacturers to visualize and examine even complex furniture pieces with ease.

Adoption of negotiation strategies

Suppliers who can provide value-additions to buyers have higher chances of establishing a stronger presence in the market. Additions such as sourcing furniture not included in the portfolio, providing assistance in deciding the theme of a space and the furniture that suits the theme, and providing longer warranty periods help the suppliers to close deals.

Unbundling of services

A key strategy that suppliers from the furniture and furnishings market adopt is the unbundling of services. They source key services such as credit facilities and maintenance services to dedicated players who can help in reducing the total spend cost. Suppliers save up to 10% of the total category spend by adopting the unbundling strategy.
