Industry Report - Industry Locations Chapter

IBISWorld estimates that furniture, carpet and lighting wholesaling activities in the United Kingdom are mainly concentrated in London, the South East and the North West. Together, these regions are expected to account for nearly 31.7% of industry establishments in 2015-16. London and the North West have accounted for a declining share of industry revenue over the past five years, while the South East has risen. The North East, Northern Ireland and Wales account for the smallest share of industry establishments.
