Consumers now have more choices and sales are increasing for the home furnishing products. Among home furnishing products, alternative materials and natural products witnessed the most demand in recent years. Organic home furnishings are experiencing a high demand due to their eco-friendliness, in addition to the style, comfort, and quality that they provide.
Europe leads the home furnishings industry in terms of revenues, followed by North America and the Asia-Pacific region. However, in the period up until 2015, the Asia-Pacific region is predicted to achieve maximum growth in this sector. In the region, India is the largest exporter of home furnishing goods to the US. Mom and pop shops are the key players in the highly fragmented home furnishing market. By and large, the market for premium priced products is growing faster than the other items with better homes.
The home improvement industry is likely to improve, owing to factors such as baby boomers upgrading to bigger homes, increase in the purchase of second homes or going for remodeling or repairing, and higher disposable incomes, specifically in the developing markets. Home improvement products market, over the recent past, has benefitted from the low mortgage rates prevalent in most of the countries, translating into strong demand, regardless of the prevailing weak economic conditions. Women have a major influence on the home improvement industry as homemakers. As a result, retailers are increasingly targeting female customers as they represent the major demographic segment for the home improvement products industry. Women are most likely to be associated with home improvement projects and a majority of them tend to make changes in their homes once every five years.
Electronic media plays a vital role in driving the home improvement products market. Television shows on home remodeling and repairs are succeeding in transforming viewers into customers of the industry.
