Indicators reflect the need to outline main trends in exports, demand, production and prices and are originally elaborated to shed light and provide further insight on certain aspects of demand and production.

They outline the macroeconomic scenario and its repercussions over furniture and furnishings sectors. CSIL experts illustrate the competitive system, the market size and trends, demand determinants and import-export flows in a single country, or group of countries.
