China is a major exporter of furniture and home furnishings, Chinese furniture and home furnishings in the past few years, high-profile "go out" at the same time, many foreign furniture and home furnishings brands are also strong "into" the Chinese market. From the furniture exhibition in recent years, the number of foreign exhibitors is on the rise. At the same time, many well-known furniture brands in Europe and the United States, also optimistic about the Chinese market, came to a number of.
At present, Chinese furniture, home furnishing enterprises, in addition to facing the pressure of imported brands to grab the market, but also face the pressure of export slowdown. It is understood that in recent years, China's exports of wood products and wooden furniture facing rising raw material costs, rising labor costs and the appreciation of the RMB three major difficulties, but also from the European and American markets on China's exports of wood products and wooden furniture standards are becoming increasingly stringent export difficulties. Therefore, the domestic furniture, home furnishing enterprises have moved up, expecting to integrate resources through "grouping" to stabilize market share.
Internet marketing era, "group" also speaks of skills
Internet era, the impact on the furniture business is also more far-reaching. The Internet can integrate big data, resources, the establishment of a large platform. And for furniture companies, how to choose has become a problem. Is the build their own e-commerce platform, or to borrow B2C platform such as Tmall, Jingdong? Or enterprise "group" development?
Some industry insiders said that the region to "group" is not a good choice, is to the region as a unit. Of course, the enterprise "group" development, not simply a combination, but also need one or more local enterprises to take the lead, to the category for the convening, complementary advantages, the formation of a strong combination.

In addition, in the Internet era, enterprises can also seek to have the ability to expand the platform, docking a strong industrial services platform to "group", so that the alliance can be smoothly landed.
Foreign brands blow the rallying cry to seize the market

Change the big industry "small business", enterprise "group" to warm up

Currently, the development of the furniture industry has been mentioned as an important national industrial level.

On the one hand, trade barriers limit the possibility of many furniture and home furnishing exports; on the other hand, factors such as rising domestic costs are also its important reasons.
Ltd. and general manager of China Wood Industry City, Tan Chunsheng, said that the status quo of China's furniture and home furnishing "big industry" and "small enterprises" is obviously not formed overnight, and this status quo will not change significantly in the future for a period of time. of. The reasons for this status quo are mainly attributed to the following two points. One is the furniture, home furnishing industry entry threshold is low, the industry is easy to start their own enterprises, the more the number of enterprises, marketing resources, research and development resources will be scattered, the industry will not be able to form a unified competitiveness. Secondly, due to the low entry threshold of the industry, many foreign buyers have a lot of opportunities to ask for quotations and bargain, leading to the formation of "big industry" and "small enterprises" pattern. Mr. Tan believes that by suggesting furniture, home furnishings, handicrafts (handicrafts decoration effect picture) import and export enterprises in this fragmented state choose to "group" development. Because the furniture, home furnishing, handicraft industry after the country's elimination, after the baptism, the industry pattern is basically formed, each industry cluster area has a general enterprise, stronger enterprises, this situation strong combination, "group" into a professional platform, can make these enterprises develop better, more quickly. According to reports, China Wood City is not only a professional furniture, home crafts import and export wholesale procurement base, but also has a well-functioning e-commerce platform.
