  • 2023-01-12

       We were honored to visit the chairman of Taiwan Furniture Manufacturer Association (TFMA) Sam Chen to ask him for his views on the furniture industry.Following is the key point of his statement .        For domestic demand, the sales of imported furniture and other retail sectors increased by 14.16% YOY in the first half of 2020. It showed that, under the epidemic, more people increased their budget in healthy family lifestyle, driving growth for related industries. Since 2021, with the accessible vaccines, the world has developed a way of life that coexists with the virus. Entering the post-pandemic era, we found that a M-shaped consumer preference has shown in furniture market. Even though global market was suffered from the increased cost due to the shortage of labor and materials, the bantique furniture market has been growing. Thus, there still have huge potentials in luxurious bantique furniture sector.        On the other hand, environmental protection, energy saving, and carbon reduction are still the mainstreams in the market. Enterprises can achieve the goals through eco-friendly production, recyclable materials, or eco-materials, such as popinac or bamboo. Meanwhile, custom furniture service with AI virtual technology,  multifunctional furnitures with composite structure for small spaces are ongoing trends. And, under the lower birth rate in East Asia, pet furniture become more popular. With its huge potentials, more furniture malls and exhibitions has launched pet segments.        In regards of export market, since 2016, the global furniture value had gradually recovered to $490 billions along with the world economy as of 2019. Since then, the market has been steady growth. In developed countries, citizens have stronger purchasing power that would make them pursue higher quality living spaces, generating a steady furniture demand from redecorating old houses or rental houses.        In developing countries, the increasing number of people in cities has led to the expansion of housing demand and the demands for furniture. Meanwhile, the rapid economic development of emerging market has increased residents' purchasing power. As a result, people have more capabilities and more desire to seek better living condition, which would drive continuous growth. Industry Consulting Expert in China predicted that the market scale of global furniture market will reach $556.1 billions. For most of the TFMA members who had bravely stepped forward to participate exhibitions, for instance, Orgatc Tokyo, AFF, MIFF, IWF, or Orgatec, had already tasted the opportunities of post-epidemic recovery. This year, many global buyers respond that they have not seen new products from various countries for a long time and are looking forward to finding more opportunities. Moreover, many of the exhibitors' ran out of their catalog and name cards in the first day of the exhibitions. Hence, We expected to have more members join us to participate the shows next year.        On the other hand, benefited from the development and lower cost of logistic, onlines furniture stores bring more choices and convenience for consumers. Statistics showed that, during 2017 to 2020, the market share of online sales in global furniture market has been increasing. Online channels become a new market driver worldwide. In the future, with the continuous development of e-commerce channels, logistics, and e-payment, online furniture market share is expected to have more expansion.        The report shows that the market scale of global furniture market will reach $650.7 billions, increased by $140.9 billion, with a growth rate of 27.6%,  compared with 2020. Although the global epidemic in 2020 has caused a certain impact in the furniture industry, enterprises will have further integration that increase brand concentration, advantages of scales, and overall quality of industrial development.        Also, benefited from more popularity of the internet and payment technology, e-commerce has flourished that develops consumers' online shopping habits and behaviors. Due to the convenience of using images, videos and other media to display products online, and fast online payment, transaction efficiency has been greatly improved. According to the report, the revenue of the furniture e-commerce channel in the United States will reach $61.212 billions in 2025. Meanwhile, the scale in Europe will reach $51.964 billions.

"Smart Manufacturing from Anderson"

  • 2023-01-05

       In recent years, with the process of Industry 4.0 innovation, electrical component suppliers and software system suppliers of various integrated solutions have also followed the development trend. In addition to the covid-19 epidemic storm since 2020, the ever-changing market trends have catalyzed the transformation and upgrading of many industries. Smart manufacturing is one of the most comprehensive topics. How should smart manufacturing be done?        The perspective of Anderson, each industry has its production process and the supply/demand of upstream/downstream ecological chains are different, and it cannot be consistent for all. It is necessary to consider the possibility of phase in and reserve the possibility of future expansion and upgrading.        For the integration of smart manufacturing, the factory obtains the big data of the production process through the sensor on the machinery equipment, and makes a self-judgment with the front-end and back-end information processing software platforms to issue decision-making instructions, and sends them back through the system to processing equipment and automatic execution of programs, etc., the advanced processes and models of this type of function belong to a part of smart manufacturing.        In other words, smart manufacturing is the various links in the production process of "smart machinery" can be integrated with related applications as long as IoT, cloud computing, big data, and AI artificial intelligence, and through network data streams, all devices can communicate with each other. The ultimate goal is to exchange information with each other in real time, and replace the traditional manufacturing process in real-time and quantified transparent management.        In the field of woodworking machinery, it is our direction to support “system furniture manufacturers” to introduce intelligent production. The first stage is to assist the industry to have "machinery and or so equipment to be more intelligence". In addition to the need to add more sensor components to the mechanical equipment itself, it is also necessary to optimize the human-machine interface of the machine operation so that it is not only to operate friendly, but more importantly, it can predict the data obtained from the sensor and temporarily store it locally. Directly compatible with external data processing software platform for real-time information exchange. After the industry possesses the basic elements of intelligent machinery, Anderson further thinks for customers and proposes a variety of automated upgrades before and after manufacturing integration solutions, including automated equipment such as robotic arms or Anderson self-developed crane type pick and place modules, etc., through integration the key to the combination of solutions is to optimize and improve the traditional manufacturing process during the hardware upgrade process, simplify the labor intensive level, and reduce the defect-rate caused by human errors in the original manufacturing process. In addition, through the network and the software data processing platform can also transmit the factory's manufacturing big data to mobile devices in real time, allowing management to grasp the production status more quickly.        In the process of moving towards the goal of evolution and upgrading of smart manufacturing, Anderson keeps improving and continues to look for collaborating manufacturers to jointly create diversified development possibilities in order to meet different customer needs. Therefore, Anderson has developed into not only a manufacturer of mechanical equipment, but also a developer and maintainer of software, and an integrator capable of cross-system integration technology.        Facing all new challenges, Anderson insists on innovation and continuous research and development, and diagnoses the most suitable solution for customers, so as to jointly achieve the vision expected by customers and Anderson.

He added that it is up to each and every one of us to ensure long-term economic success. The workforce is fully behind the planned measures and is looking forward to the improvements they will bring. Works council chairman Rainer Haag commented: “It is a joint project. Only if we all work together can we succeed. We have been discussing what that looks like over the past few months. The most important thing is that no jobs are cut. On the contrary, we will grow!”   The machine builders from Tauberbischofsheim are prepared to tackle the future. Source from : WEINIG Group
