The Wicker and Fibreglass Furniture Manufacturing industry has performed poorly over the past five years. Due to low-costs imports and substitute furniture goods made from wood, plastics and steel, this industry has failed to strive to maintain its share of the domestic furniture market. In addition, industry demand from building activity and key downstream furniture retailers has been subdued over the period. Building activity influences the industry’s performance as consumers need to furnish new houses, and will often use industry products to help achieve this. Industry revenue is expected to decline at an annualised 1.1% over the five years through 2016-17, to $305.5 million. This result includes an anticipated fall of 6.8% in the current year, due to a large decline in demand from building construction.
