The Furniture Repair and Reupholstery industry has fought tough conditions over the past five years, particularly in the wake of the recession. In the aftermath of the most severe economic downturn since the Great Depression, consumers and many businesses delayed nonessential furniture repair and restoration services. In the five years to 2019, the industry is expected to continue declining as individuals increasingly opt to purchase new furniture instead of repairing it, making long-term demand for the industry to be patchy at best. Lower-priced furniture, especially from low-cost manufacturing countries, will continue to lure customers away from repair services.
This industry is involved in reupholstering, refinishing, repairing and restoring furniture. Participants offer on-site and in-store furniture reupholstery and repair services. Automotive vehicle upholstery repair services and the restoration of museum pieces are not included in this industry.
