Co-existence relationship of residential apartments and furniture in the republic of Korea

KANG, Hye-Sung ; KIM, Min-Soo ;


As of the year 2012, more than half the population of the Repblic of Korea (ROK) reside in apartments. Because the majority of the residential properties are comprised of apartments the main target customers for the manufacturers and service providers would naturally be the apartment residents at the early stages of product development. The co-existence relationship between the apartment complexes that multiply themselves by virtue of multiple imitation systems and the products that again repeatedly get imitated to take advantage of this multiplication has to be an interesting topic to explore. This topic would have a close connection with examination of directions of development of the apartments and Korean furniture manufacturing industry to their present states, as well as with examination of the mutual relationship between them.
