New furniture customization zone in Guangzhou
CIFM / interzum guangzhou, Asia's largest and most comprehensive woodworking machinery, furniture materials and interior decor trade fair will be staged again from March 28-31, 2018 in Guangzhou with an additional feature zone in response to shifting trends from mass produced standard furniture.
CIFM / interzum guangzhou 2018 has recently announced the debut of a Customization zone as younger homeowners - led by the post-80s and 90s groups – are increasingly seeking unique designs and favor custom furniture in a bid to increase utilization rate of their homes amid rocketing property prices in first and second-tier Chinese cities. This industry segment is expected to continue to grow at an annual rate of 18 per cent or more. By 2020, the market value is estimated to reach 160.6 billion yuan.
The flexible production cycle of customized furniture also means manufacturing in small batches, a shorter delivery cycle, reduced costs and improved productivity. Recognizing its growth potential, the feature zone aims to serve as a comprehensive reflection of the challenges and opportunities brought about by customization trends in the furniture industry, and provide a one-stop shop for buyers by bringing together high-quality hardware components, wood panels, counter tops and machinery suppliers for furniture production. In addition, a list of “Top 50 Quality Custom Furniture Suppliers" will be selected and announced during the event.
