As the economy continues to build since the recession and maintain stable growth, the demand for business furniture in the U.S. is expected to increase slowly over the next five years, according to global industry researcher IBISWorld.
The numbers are expected to go up because businesses are expanding operations and more new companies are emerging. As these entities grow, they need more office furniture, and the manufacturing of these items will likely see a revenue increase of 3.6 percent to 20.6 billion by the end of 2012.
Even if the economy hows signs of a recovery, many companies are still healing from tough conditions in the last several years. As they grow, these organizations are looking for meaningful, long-lasting and affordable investments. Purchasing second hand business furniture is a great way for businesses to ensure the quality of their workplace environment without having to contribute to massive costs.
When buyers with a limited budget choose new, cheaper options, they often don't see the return on their investment, because low-quality furniture reduces employee productivity and often needs to be replaced after little use. Meanwhile, choosing used office tables, chairs and other items can keep up the workflow pace and reduce the need to replace furniture in the near future.
