2 Furniture Stocks Wall Street Predicts Have More Than 55% Upside Potential

NYSE: RH | RH  News, Ratings, and Charts

RH – Despite lingering supply chain disruptions, the furniture industry is expected to grow in 2022, supported by strong demand. The surge in furniture e-commerce, increased interest in eco-friendly furniture, and advancements in technologies are driving the growth in the furniture industry. Given the industry’s impressive growth prospects, Wall Street analysts expect the stocks of fundamentally solid furniture companies RH (RH) and Arhaus (ARHS) to rally in price by more than 55% in the near term. Read on.

The furniture market has been flourishing over the past two years owing to strong demand despite ongoing supply chain issues. Because many people were stuck at home during the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for comfortable furniture for their home offices and other spaces climbed tremendously. Furthermore, the pandemic has accelerated the furniture e-commerce industry, as evidenced by the significant rise in online furniture sales. And the positive momentum in the housing market in the United States also makes the near-term outlook of the furniture market brighter.

Furthermore, industry players are incorporating innovation and advanced technologies to broaden their product portfolios, which is driving revenue in the furniture industry. The U.S. furniture market revenue is expected to be $239.37 million in 2022. The global furniture market is expected to reach $720.20 billion by 2028, growing at a 5.5% CAGR. Also, the increasing demand for eco-friendly furniture is a prominent trend in recent times.
