Double-digit growth is expected for the global standing desk market between now and 2025 according to the newest forecast from Research and Markets. That’s good news for both standing desk manufacturers and consumers who want a healthier and more active working experience.
Electric Standing Desks Lead the Way
While mechanically adjustable desks have been the most popular category of standing desks to date, analysts expect that electric standing desks and converter models will experience the most growth over the next five years.
Some of the factors that make electric standing desks a more attractive option for consumers include:
- Ability to go from sitting to standing in 10 seconds or less
- No force required to lift and lower the desk
- More precision in achieving the perfect height
- Friendly reminders to switch positions
- Smart integration with fitness apps and IoT devices
Key Market Competitors
In response to the growing demand for standing desks, more and more furniture manufacturers are expanding into the ergonomic desk space. Companies that currently have the largest market share in the standing desk category include:
- SquareGrove LLC
- AFC Industries, Inc.
- Ergotron, Inc. (Nortek, Inc.)
- Evodesk.com, Inc.
- Workrite Ergonomics, Inc.
- Steelcase, Inc.
- NextDesk, Inc.
Staying Competitive with the Market Leaders
Although they didn’t make Research and Markets’ top 10 list, many regional and small market standing desk manufacturers are giving larger companies a run for their money by offering consumers more custom design options and more affordable pricing.
That means new players in the market can gain significant market share by sourcing the highest quality components at the most economical price.

Standing desk manufacturers that incorporate LoctekMotion lifting columns into their desk designs not only report high product sales on Amazon and other online retail sites, their standing desks repeatedly earn consumer awards for safety and design.
