The value of Japan’s imports of wooden bedroom furniture continue to trend higher, a trend seen in previous years. If imports follow the same pattern as in 2017 and 2018 the value of imports will reverse direction to fall steadily until around September, as ITTO reported.

In January 2019, year-on-year the value of imports were some 7% down but month-on-month there was a 15% rise in the value of imports with the two main shippers, China and Vietnam both seeing higher shipments. The combined value of shipments for China and Vietnam accounted for just over 90% of all January 2019 imports of this category of wooden furniture.

Thailand, Malaysia and Poland are also suppliers of wooden bedroom furniture and the combined shipments from these three accounted for almost all of the 5% balance.
