Conference Room Table Market: An Insight On the Important Factors and Trends Inf

Posted by Harshad Borde on May 7th, 2019

A conference room table is a large table, generally in a rectangle shape around which people may be seated during a conference. Conference table furniture is available in a wide variety of designs and styles. They are made of metal, plastic, wood, or glass. Conference tables are widely used in the corporate sector, in educational institutions, and in hotels. Depending on the end-use, conference table designs can be modified through manual and machine-based processes.

Numerous factor such as increasing size of corporate offices, number of employees, and increasing number of startups are expected to result in increasing demand for conference room tables over the forecast period. Increasing number of startups and government support for new startups is driving demand for the product. Rising service industry, especially IT, is one of the major factors responsible for the growth of the conference room table market.

Standardization of office infrastructure in IT parks and commercial zones is anticipated to boost the conference room table market during the forecast period. Unlike production plants, the service industry requires big corporate offices to operate their work plans. Rising number of educational institutions is likely to expand the market during the forecast period. In educational institutions, discussion of administration policies, formal gatherings etc. are conducted around conference tables.

Shipping, storage, and space requirement are major challenges for manufacturers of conference room tables. High cost of conference tables is also anticipated to hamper the growth of the market over the forecast period. Moreover, popularity of the concept of co-working space is restricting the growth of the conference room table market. Lack of space, and rise of small sized firms are few other factors expected to impact the growth of the market over the forecast period. Rising trend of rental market and use of old tables is decreasing the demand for new tables, which is likely to restrict the demand for conference room tables.

In terms of distribution channel, the market is categorized into online and offline. Online channel is expected to dominate the market due to increasing adoption of smart phones and digital technologies.
