Abstract

The furniture industry of the Metropolitan Region of Belém provides many jobs opportunities and help to reduce the environmental impacts of sawmill, given that the shavings and wood residues of these firms are used as raw material. Factorial analysis was used to estimate the index of competitive performance (ICP) and to determine the competitive position of the firms in the furniture industry. The results showed that most of the furniture firms were located in an intermediate competitive level, which is due to the limiting factors such as lack of workforce, low technological level, difficult access to credit and low level of horizontal and vertical integration in the supply chain. The final results showed that only one, among the furniture firms, achieved a high competitive performance position.
