Industry Prospects

Home furnishings is expected to see marginal growth at constant 2013 prices, related to housing trends in South Korea. Owning a home is becoming less common as prices are too expensive, while there are also genuine concerns over the bursting of the real estate market bubble. Instead, people are now usually renting long-term. In this situation, consumers are less likely to invest much on home furnishings, and will look for economy or standard value products.
