The Romanian home furnishings market is home to both large domestic players and renowned international companies. Domestic players were most affected by the financial crisis, as their products are mostly mid-range and high quality items. Consequently they had to adapt more strategy to taking advantage of demand from the external market. Consequently, furniture exports reached their all-time maximum in 2013 (RON6 billion), while furniture imports stood at RON1.5 billion. The Romanian furniture manufacturing industry is highly fragmented (3,000 economic entities) and a lot of companies are suppliers for IKEA. The economic uncertainties and the massive migration of the labour force abroad distorted activities in the wood industry, and consequently the activity of Romanian producers. The leader on the Romanian market is Mobexpert (10% share in 2013), a company which deals with both production and retail of home furnishings. The second-placed player was IKEA, with a share of 7%. Mobexpert has the greatest turnover, while Lemet saw the most expanded store network.
