The east African economies consume US $1.2 billion worth of furniture annually, of which 22 percent is imported. Since growth is driven by growing urban populations and purchasing power, growth prospects are favourable, and Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Uganda are likely to remain the dominant furniture Markets. Kenya is the largest market of furniture in east Africa. It is also the largest producer of furniture manufacturing twice as much as Ethiopia, the next biggest market. Looking at the furniture industry of Kenya we see great potential of wood working machinery, given the fact that they are dependent on importing it from different countries.
