The value of Japan’s imports of wooden kitchen furniture has been steadily rising since July. Year-on-year, September imports were up 24%, but compared to levels in August they were down 12%, as ITTO reported.

Despite the seemingly sharp increase in September imports of wooden kitchen furniture, shipments throughout the year to-date have been within a fairly narrow range.

For the first time shipments from the Philippines topped those from Vietnam. In September shipments from the Philippines were double that in August while shipments from Vietnam were down 20%.

The combined shipments from the Philippines, Vietnam and China account for over 90% of all September shipments of wooden kitchen furniture.
