Standing desks, electric versus manual

Consumers much prefer electric standing desks because of its modern features which include, the fast and quieter transition of heights, heavy-duty materials that could withstand the weight of heavy objects, and memory settings and control modules made for user personalization. However, the total number of installed electric and manual standing desks could not be found because the information is not publicly available.

Methodology

We started the search by looking into the total number of electric and manual standing desks in the US. We did this by looking through US government databases such as US.gov, but unfortunately, the specified information has not been made public by the US government. We then decided to look through research articles and news journals such as Science Direct and National Post, but the majority of the sources did not have any data regarding the total number of electric and manual standing desks in the US.

We then expanded our focus to include the statistics for the percentage of electric and manual standing desks installed in the US, so we could use this number to multiply with the percentage of the total number of standing desks installed in the US (this was estimated in the previous request). We searched through government databases and statistical websites such as Statista, Forrester, Gartner, IDC, and IndexBox. However, none of the sources provided any data regarding the percentage of electric and manual standing desks installed in the US. We were able to get some statistical data about US office furniture statistics, but it did not have any information regarding electric and manual standing desks, so we chose to exclude it. We then concluded that the number of electric and manual standing desk is publicly unavailable as no reputable source or government website contains any data about the given topic.

Lastly, we decided to look into companies that sell electric and standing desks in the US. This is to determine the number of desks these companies sold using their annual report. We can then use that number to approximate the total number of electric and standing desks in the US based on the products sold. We looked into the official websites of the companies such as Varidesk and Standesk, but none of them publicized their reports. The companies that did provide their annual report did not have specific information about electric and manual standing desks in the US. They only provided the total revenue in the US and globally. We also looked for case studies regarding the topic, but the search yielded no fruitful result.

After the exhaustive search, we concluded that the information for the total number of electric and manual standing desk in the US is not publicly available. Additionally, we listed all the most related available details on electronic and manual standing desks and provided some paywalled market size reports of electric and manual standing desks as well, which may prove to be helpful to the client.
