The Present Situation of School Furniture Reveals the Disadvantage of the Industry

- Jun 21, 2019-

In recent years, the school furniture industry has developed rapidly, but the quality of school furniture has not been directly proportional to the development of the industry. Excessive formaldehyde emission, unreasonable product structure lead to potential safety hazards, the use of inferior paint paint spraying product surface... School furniture frequently falls into the "quality gate".


According to incomplete statistics, in the first half of this year alone, more than 20 school furniture manufacturers were exposed by quality supervision departments. According to the sampling results of school furniture released by Guangdong Quality Supervision Bureau recently, the qualified rate of 62 batches of school furniture is only 67.7%, two batches of school furniture are over the standard of heavy metals, and three batches of school furniture are over the standard of formaldehyde emission. The main heavy metals in school furniture are lead, cadmium, chromium and so on. The measured value of soluble lead in the bedside cabinet of a student apartment bed is nearly 40 times higher than the standard.


The development of China's furniture industry has lasted for more than 30 years, and the average annual growth rate of the industry's gross output value is 22.2%. In recent years, although real estate regulation exists, it also has a certain impact on the development of furniture industry. However, China's population base itself is large, and today's urbanization and the continuous development of new rural construction, the furniture industry as a whole continues to grow.

Relevant data show that by 2030, the level of urbanization is expected to reach 65% - 70%, which is a huge potential market. So when furniture enters the fast lane of e-commerce development, it accelerates the pace of the industry, at the same time, it also breaks the traditional furniture management pattern, and undergoes the re-integration under the new situation, and the whole industry begins to take a qualitative leap.
