By geography, the global upholstered furniture market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and the Middle East & Africa.

The North American region is anticipated to hold a dominant share in the market in the forecast period 2021-2028. The growth is attributable to the increased construction spending from high-end consumers and rising demand for home décor. The market exhibits a strong pull from strong distribution channels catering to a broader consumer base across the region. The increase in residential innovation and the rise in disposable income of the consumers have triggered the demand for such products. The industry manufacturers pose a high level of integration, with major manufacturers involved in processing raw materials. Major manufacturers in the North American region include Ashley Furniture Industries, Inter IKEA Group, American Furniture Installation, etc. Canada and Mexico are considered to be the major export markets for U.S. manufacturers.

The Asia Pacific market is also projected to grow significantly in the forecast period 2021-2028. The positive impact on the demand of the upholstered furniture market is due to the low production cost of raw materials such as synthetic fibers and polymers and the broad presence of small and large-scale manufacturers across the region. According to a World Bank study, the furniture industry is projected to grow by 20 % every year. Moreover, a significant part of this growth is likely to come from Asia's rapidly growing consumer markets, implying a considerable increase in the Indian furniture sector. Furthermore, strong suppliers and distribution channels in this region have positively influenced regional growth. The Indian furniture industry is likely to transform into a more organized and competitive sector in the coming years with the entry of global players in the market and the emergence of prominent retail players.
