Online home furnishing opportunities are expected to continue growing over the next five years, particularly following the surge in e-commerce during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The homeware market was heavily impacted by coronavirus in 2020, but recent trends would suggest a rapid recovery. The UK market is growing at a faster rate than other retail markets, as customers opt for affordable options to give their homes a new look.
The market in the UK has already expanded substantially in the last decade, going from £10.8 billion to £13.6 billion by 2019. When you combine this trend with decorative accessories showing a growth of 22%, accounting for 12% of the homewares market by 2021, there are definitely some good opportunities for businesses to explore.
This increase will be supported by high street retailers, who have expanded their home ranges and introduced seasonal products while decorative accessories may also drive the market ranges through their trend-led, cost-efficient options for updating the look of a home.
So, how to make the most of these latest trends? What products can help you really stand out in the market? Take a look at the full range of sublimation products that we have on offer here.
