Man versus Machine: Manufacturers Straddle Traditional Designs with Modern Innovations

The rugs market is anticipated to progress at a modest CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period. However, scarce availability of handmade antique rugs due to shrinking artisan communities poses as a barrier for market growth. Hence, companies are investing in technologies that manufacture machine-made rugs with antique designs to meet the needs of users. For instance, Safavieh— a high-tech corporation involved with rugs furniture design, has kept innovative designs at the forefront to offer timelessness and character in antique rugs across households in the U.S. This is evident since the rugs market in North America is anticipated to generate the highest revenue by the end of 2027.

Manufacturers are increasing their production capabilities in handmade rugs made from natural fibers to meet ever-evolving needs of users. They are also tapping opportunities in synthetic-fiber machine-made rugs made with family-friendly designs. As such, the revenue of residential applications is predicted to continuously overshadow commercial applications during the forecast period.

Time-honored Techniques Improving Lead Time for Manufacturing Hand-woven Rugs

Manufacturers in the rugs market are generating incremental opportunities by experimenting with different materials such as cashmere, mohair, silk, leather, etc. For instance, SHIIR Rugs— a provider of artisanal rugs designed by leading interior designers, is increasing efforts to travel countries in order to explore ancient-rug making techniques using wool, silk, and leather materials. Manufacturers are collaborating with true cottage industries to ethically and responsibly manufacture rugs with a shared motive for creative exploration. Time-honored techniques are improving the lead time by onboarding laborers from developing economies of Asia Pacific.

Moreover, enhanced durability and clean-ability of rugs are becoming key focus points for manufacturers during their decision-making processes. Hence, manufacturers are extending personalized services in the rugs market to help users with the best material selection according to the foot traffic. On the other hand, customization is playing a pivotal role to meet specific budget parameters of end users.
