FELTON, California, April 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
The U.S. online residential furniture market is expected to reach USD 28.74 billion by 2024 and is projected to grow over the forecast period from 2017 to 2024. Growth in the market has been attributed to the stability of the real estate sector. Home sales in the U.S. have moved northwards, and with the favorable macroeconomic environment, consumers have started investing in associated home essentials including furniture.
Among the various consumer groups, millennials lead the pack in the online residential furniture market. Millennials are well-versed with digital devices and are aware of various online platforms, which coupled with their propensity to explore and compare furniture online, places them as one of the key consumer groups in the market. In addition, millennials make their presence active on social networking platforms and are keen on online purchases, which makes them even more receptive of the online residential furniture market.
Operational challenges, mainly related to order fulfillment continues to be a key aspect which tends to affect their top line. To that end, unexpected delay, damaged product delivery, and an increase in service charges by order fulfillment companies remain key challenges. For instance, in 2016, companies such as UPS and FedEx increased their handling fee for bulky products to suffice for the space these products take in delivery vehicles.
