The Market for Off-the-Shelf Second-Hand Furniture is witnessing increased awareness of environmental sustainability, exemplified by initiatives like IKEA’s ‘Buy Back’ program in select EU nations since November 2020. This encourages customers to sell back used furniture and aligns with IKEA’s commitment to becoming a fully circular firm by 2030, utilizing only recyclable, sustainable, or reusable products.

New York, United States, Jan. 18, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Due to people fleeing to different cities because of the coronavirus lockdowns, unemployed millennials returning to live with their parents, and bored-induced renovation, many people have been selling their furniture at affordable costs. The growing acceptance of old furniture encourages sustainability, lessens the need for raw materials, and minimizes carbon footprint. Businesses like IKEA are putting new strategies into practice, which will help them gain ground in the second-hand furniture industry.

Rising Awareness to Reduce Furniture Disposal for Better Environmental Conditions Drives the Global Market

According to Straits Research, “The global off-the-shelf second-hand furniture market growth was valued at USD 29.80 billion in 2021. It is projected to reach USD 58.58 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 7.80% during the forecast period (2022-2030).” Steelcase, a furniture manufacturer and designer, is implementing a circular economy business model and trying to increase the amount of easily disassembled and recyclable furniture. In addition, setting timelines for implementing environmentally friendly practices is becoming more common among corporations, local governments, and well-established organizations. For instance, IKEA introduced a new “Buy Back” initiative in November 2020 in a few EU countries to encourage customers to sell back their used IKEA furniture. IKEA will then sell the furniture for regular pricing. The business has pledged to employ exclusively recyclable, sustainable, or reusable materials to achieve full circularity by 2030.

Additionally, payment systems are being changed by fintech companies, making them secure and simple to use.
