With more than 120 million people, Mexico is an attractive market for Spanish furniture manufacturers and figures confirm this trend. In 2015, Spain exported to Mexico furniture worth over 50 million euros, registering an increase of +6.3% over the previous year. As a matter of fact, Mexico ranks now 10th in the world ranking of destinations for exports of Spanish furniture.
Its strategic location between the United States and other Latin American countries, its growing real estate and tourism sector, as well as the urban development , make of Mexico an important hub for worldwide exporters.
Numerous contract projects of various kinds, especially in the hospitality and commercial markets, have led to increasing imports of furniture, and this is why ANIEME has put its focus on this area and considers it a main market for Furniture from Spain.
Hasta la vista in Mexico, then...
