However, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the growth of the market. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, customers display increased awareness, concern, and habit-formation behavior toward the environment. Consumers have increased their purchase frequency and are willing to pay more for sustainable products. This shows growing consumer awareness toward sustainability due to covid-19, which continues to favor market growth.

Moreover, the rising adoption of sustainable materials in furniture production to support the environment continues to drive the market. In addition, increasing adoption of eco-friendly housing projects by firms across countries such as Australia, China, Singapore, the U.S., and Canada, owing to client demand as well as the prominence of environmental regulations remain the key drivers of demand for sustainable interiors in the residential sector. This scenario continues to boost the application of environmentally friendly furniture as well as furnishings in the commercial and residential sectors.

Governments around the world continue to promote the construction of green buildings, mainly with the provision of funding and through various other incentives as well. For instance, in October 2021, the U.K. government announced new funding of 440 million pounds for green construction projects as part of a much larger net zero announcement. Incentives for achieving green building certifications are also provided by other countries. The U.S., for instance, has state incentive programs for LEED certification.

In addition, increased health risks caused by traditional furniture which releases harmful pollutants such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and causes allergies, migraines, and asthma continues to drive demand for eco-friendly interiors. This, in turn, has raised the preference for eco-friendly furniture produced with a minimal amount of chemicals. Therefore, consumers continue the adoption of sustainable furniture products.

With an increasing aim to reduce emissions, the rising prominence of sustainability as a prevalent trend in home design and renovation gains traction in the market. Growing acceptance of eco-friendly workplaces has also added to the growth of the market in the commercial sector. According to EPA, 8.5 million tons of office furniture is dumped into landfills each year. Therefore, there is high availability of sustainable materials to produce various types of furniture such as reclaimed wood, rubberwood, bamboo, rattan, and wicker.
