The value of Japan’s imports of wooden kitchen furniture grew in the 3Q 2017, but then reversed direction in the final months of the year. Year-on-year Japan’s imports of wooden kitchen furniture were up 16% in December 2017, but month-on-month imports fell around 10%, as ITTO reported.
The combined shipments from the Philippines, Vietnam and China once again account for over 90% of all December shipments of wooden kitchen furniture. The Philippines accounted for 46% of the value of Japan’s wooden kitchen furniture imports followed by Vietnam (36%) and China (12%).
