San Jose, California (PRWEB) November 17, 2014
Follow us on LinkedIn – Wall Coverings, a protective wall décor comprising wallpapers, wall tiles, interior paints, and wall panels, are extensively used in residential, commercial and industrial buildings for functionality and art. Wall coverings represent a vital component of a building's integrated wall system with market demand highly dependent on construction activity in residential, hospitality and healthcare sectors. Improving economic growth as mirrored by the steady rise in global GDP, growing consumer confidence, and rising construction activity and building renovation/retrofit activity across the world is driving current growth in the market. Ongoing trends in the market include revival of interest in feature walls and the gradual replacement of paper-based wallpapers with non-woven wallpapers.
Future growth in the market is expected to be driven by increasing global population, rapid urbanization, burgeoning middle class population, and rising standards of living and the resulting need to build more residential and commercial spaces across the world. With urban population increasing at the rate of more than a person every second, by 2050 urban population worldwide is set to increase by over 2.5 billion totaling over 6.0 billion individuals. The scenario broadens the total available market opportunity for wall coverings.
Driven by growing emphasis on environment protection, the market is witnessing the launch of a wide range of eco-friendly interior paints, sustainable wall panels and wallpapers. Technological innovations such as ink-jet printing technology that allows tile surfaces to replicate any look, texture and design, is expected to kindle consumer interest and re-energize demand patterns in the market. Innovations that are poised to benefit the market in the near term include digital wall coverings; application of 3D technology in combination with laser cut relief, hand sculpting and engravings; indoor air quality enhancing wall coverings; sound-proof wall coverings; smart multi-purpose wall tiles; and feature-rich interior paints.
