How to Avoid Outdoor Furniture Delivery Issues This Summer
Although winter has just started in Canada, smart outdoor furniture companies are already planning their summer season in terms of getting their goods to their customers.
The staycation trend of the past few years is expected to continue in 2023, and consumer spending on backyard improvements and outdoor décor have increased substantially:
- The overall outdoor furniture market is projected to grow by approximately 6% compounded annually from 2021 to 2027 (Global Market Insights)
- Online sales of home furnishings in Canada have jumped 190% in the first quarter of 2020 (Statista)
- The worldwide BBQ market is estimated at US$5.1B (Statista)
- Deck construction is up 275% and hiring landscapers is up 238% (WFSU)
On-Going Supply Chain Issues
There is a continued high consumer demand for outdoor goods such as furniture (tables, dining sets, sofas, chairs, sectionals), BBQ grills, fire tables, heat lamps, etc., as well as deck building materials such as lumber, wood, composites, railings and decorative hardware.
The global supply chain issues we’ve been experiencing for the past few years are still with us and will impact getting these products delivered to consumers, especially when being shipped in from overseas. The overall transportation sector has been hit hard with staff shortages and rising fuel prices, so shipping costs have gone up as well.
