Report Overview

The global blinds and shades market size was valued at USD 13.09 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.2% from 2023 to 2030. Blinds and shades are protective coverings used to shield windows from dust and control how much light enters a space. While shades are formed of one or more pieces of cloth, blinds are rigid window coverings manufactured of horizontal slats. These coverings offer several benefits, including resistance to dirt and wetness, extreme durability, insulation, control over light, and maintenance of privacy. This remains a significant driver in the market's expansion.

U.S. Blinds And Shades Market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

The expansion of the blinds and shades market is anticipated to be boosted by an increase in the construction of residential and commercial structures. The need for blinds and shades is fueled by rapid urbanization and an increase in people's living standards. According to World Urbanization Prospect projections, 66% of the population would reside in urban and municipal areas by 2050, up from about 54% in 2014, which will increase demand for blinds and shades.

Both residential and commercial structures benefit from the aesthetic appeal and greater insulation that blinds and shades provide. Additionally, the thermal insulation, heat resistance, water resistance, durability, and energy-saving features of these blinds and shades are anticipated to increase consumer demand throughout the projected period. However, the availability of alternatives is anticipated to impede market expansion.

The competition has been maintained and the product portfolio has been improved by major competitors through a variety of techniques, including product launches and acquisitions. For instance, Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. introduced its own brand, ever home, in May 2022. Today, many homes offer adaptability with their aesthetic, energizing color scheme, and airy design. Their key categories include bedding, bath, outdoor décor, and interior decor. It also offers window treatment goods, such as freshly designed blinds and shades, within the interior décor category.
