Environmental concerns are starting to influence people's furniture choices when it comes to kitting out their office.

According to a new report from Research Nester, demand for eco-friendly office furniture has soared in the last few years.

This, it said, is because company bosses are becoming more and more worried about environmental protection and therefore looking for ways to boost their green credentials.

Office furniture seems to be one big area they are looking at, as some products will be sourced and manufactured in sustainable ways using eco-friendly materials.

"Such innovation is anticipated to drive the growth of office furniture market over the next few years," the report stated.

Another growing trend in the office furniture market appears to be a growing shift towards multifunctional furniture.

"Rapid pace in urbanisation across the globe and increasing preferences of consumer towards multifunctional and comfortable office furniture are likely to propel the growth of office furniture market in near future," the report said.

Figures from Research Nester indicate that the worldwide office furniture market will see a compound annual growth rate of 5.2 per cent between 2016 and 2023.

These emerging trends could be set to be key drivers of this growth over the next six years.
