The volume of furniture exports by Ukrainian manufacturers in 2022 reached $806M, which is 23% lower than the pre-war 2021 figures, said a member of the Ukrainian Association of Furniture Makers, Oksana Donska. “The furniture exports for 2022 amounted to $806M, which is $56.2M more than the volume of exports in 2020, but $244.5M less than Ukraine exported in 2021. However, despite IKEA’s refusal to cooperate with Ukrainian furniture manufacturers and the reduction of JYSK orders, the average annual export growth rate over the past six years is 11.5%,” Donska said. According to the State Customs Service, the top buyers of Ukrainian furniture are Poland, Germany, Denmark, Austria, Belgium, Romania, and the UK.
