The interest of the Spanish companies for the French market can be easily explained, as year by year France maintains its top position in the rank of main markets for the Spanish furniture industry. In the first 2017 semester, exports to France amounted to 272 million euros, which accounted for 25.9% of the total with a year-on-year increase of +0.8%.
