What is the Italian situation?
The Italian wood-furniture districts are also doing very well. Their exports have reached the incredible amount of 10 billion euro in 2022, with a significant growth in the areas of Brianza, Treviso and Pordenone. Despite the higher costs of energy, raw materials and transport due to the different events of the last few years, margins are expected to hold up well for southern and larger companies. This is indeed a very good result!
The goal is to invest and to aim high.
Looking at the future: according to Intesa Sanpaolo’s analysis, companies in the sector will have to accelerate on strategic investments. This includes the inclination to optimise energy supply contracts, promote environmental sustainability, focus on digitisation, engage in research and development of new solutions, and invest in the latest machinery and technology. It is the time to act and take advantage of these opportunities to grow and innovate!
