IKEA lifts prices as lower currency hits costs

16th November 2017

A good example here of a business raising their prices following an increase in import costs after the depreciation of sterling against the Euro and US dollar in the wake of the June 2016 Brexit vote. IKEA remains highly profitable. But note their focus on climbing towards a 15% global furniture market share objective over the next decade.
