Increasing Competition among Manufacturers and Retailers: The furniture market in UAE region is highly competitive owing to the rising demand of furniture and furnishing products. This rise in demand has led to the growing domestic demand and emergence of multiple players catering to the same target audience in the space. Manufacturers and retailers operating in the region compete on almost same grounds of quality of the product and the material used to manufacture the product.
Competition from Different Format Stores: Organized furniture retailers in UAE have faced substantial competition not only from the unorganized sector but also from different types of stores within the organized market. The organized furniture market comprises of company showrooms (exclusive or franchise), SIS format stores and destination stores. Exclusive showrooms and franchise outlets of specific brands have witnessed a higher footfall owing to high brand awareness and customer satisfaction, whereas on the other hand destination stores possess furniture products of different products under one roof.

In the future, it is believed that the companies will continue to dedicate their marketing expenditure towards above the line advertising modes.
