Industry concentration will increase
Guosheng Securities pointed out that “Overall, the custom furniture industry is still developing at a high speed in 2018. However, due to the decline in real estate sales growth and increased competition, the growth rate has slowed down.” Guojin Securities said that since the beginning of this year, the real estate cycle effect Weakened, and the impact on custom companies has gradually deepened. For example, the cabinet products are closely tied to the sales of new homes, and the growth rate continues to slow down. At the same time, the cost of getting customers online or offline is increasing. In the case of continuous regulation of real estate, the market environment faced by customized home enterprises is still difficult to improve rapidly.
An light industry manufacturing analyst accepted an interview with China Securities Journal and said that it is not necessary to be overly pessimistic about the slowdown in custom home revenue. The urbanization process is still going on, and the custom home industry still has a broad market space. Major custom home companies have taken action to seek new profit growth points.

Leading enterprises rely on the ever-increasing supply chain integration capability and multi-category selection to provide consumers with scene sales scenarios, thus continuously improving The customer price and number of customers will win in the long-term competition, and eventually change from product brand to pan-home channel brand. Guosheng Securities pointed out that the elimination of small and medium-sized enterprises will become a trend, and the concentration of the furniture industry will be further enhanced.
