Assessing the COVID-19 Effect: Sales of Window Coverings Decline Owing to Transport and Logistics Restrictions in Home Décor Industry – Future Market Insights

Window covering manufacturers are pushing for strategic collaborations with online distribution channels to increase sales, despite lockdown restrictions during pandemic

DUBAI, UAE / ACCESSWIRE / June 18, 2020 / As governments impose stay-at-home orders on local populations to counter the covid-19 crisis, new interior design events have been delayed, home décor sales have also slowed down. Further, people are not as likely to visit retailers to purchase window coverings. These factors, compounded with frequent supply disruptions will hurt the prospects of the window coverings market in the months to come.

The window coverings market is anticipated to grow at a moderate 4% CAGR throughout the forecast period 2020 – 2030. As per FMI analysts, the temporary slowdown of construction projects arising due to a shortage in materials and labor will impact the sales of window coverings. This trend is likely to continue till the end of lockdown restrictions. Recovery is expected to be sluggish, with only luxury products retaining pre-pandemic levels of demand in the short term.

“Novel tech improvements in hardware and automation in window covering designs are supporting sales. Growth in demand for smart homes will propel developments in the industry, including remote operations, and varied functionality. These trends will bode well for the window coverings market after the pandemic comes under control,” says the FMI analyst.
