Boom in e-Commerce Industry to Create Better Opportunities for Online Home Decor Market

  • Growth of the e-Commerce industry has created huge opportunities for manufacturers and distributors in the online home decor market. Producers and suppliers of home decor products are focusing on selling their products on various e-Commerce websites across the globe to cater to a comprehensive range of customers across the world. Online shopping has taken precedence over brick and mortar retail in various countries. Online reviews and feedback on home decor products such as furniture, furnishing, wall décor, and lighting also helps customers to choose the best products or accessories available in the market.

They are also providing attractive discounts, exchange offers, and installment schemes to customers to direct their attention toward their exclusive range of products.

Increasing Popularity of Home Décor Products: Key Trend of Market

  • Demand for home decor products, especially furniture, bedding, mattresses, rugs & carpets, and a wide variety of wall decor products, etc. is increasing the overall online sale of home decor products. People have moved from choosing traditional wooden furnishing to eclectic home decor designs, keeping in mind the comfort, luxury, spacing, and other needs of modern-day lifestyles. Living room furniture, beddings, carpets, wall hangings, and decorative lights are the preferred choice of customers. Customers are spending decent amount of money on the purchase of home decor through online modes of distribution.

Customer Preference for Physical Retail Experience to Hamper Online Home Decor Market Growth

  • Purchasing home decor products through online sales channels is becoming popular and individuals are buying home decor products from e-Commerce websites and various online home improvement retailers. However, majority of customers still prefer physical retail experiences to online experiences. Customers value the in-person evaluation of the size, design, material, and the significant feel of home decor products before making a purchase decision. This experience does not always translate into online stores. Customers are still inclined toward tangible traits such as color, pattern, style, and texture when evaluating products for their home. Hence, the ability to see, touch, and feel products as well as take products home immediately ranks highest among the reasons customers choose to shop in offline stores rather than online. These factors are anticipated to hamper the growth of the online home decor market in the near future.
