Imports Exports Report for 2017
May 24, 2017,
Despite continuing values represented by imported furniture and a strong dollar that typically makes those goods more affordable, furniture shipments to the U.S. market rose a meager 1% in 2016, according to figures compiled by Furniture Today for the 2017 Imports/Exports Report.
Household furniture imports rose to $24.2 billion, up just slightly from $23.9 billion in 2015. Furniture Today’s 2017 Imports/Exports report presents calendar year 2016 and 2015 shipments data. The figures are coded according to the Harmonized Tariff Schedule and made available to Furniture Today by the U.S. Census Bureau, U.S. International Trade Commission and the U.S. Customs Service.
