Owing to this increased competitiveness, some luxury interior fabric players are focusing on strategies such as mergers and acquisitions, collaborations or joint ventures, geographical expansions, and new product development.

Rising awareness about the benefits of and comfort offered by these luxury interior fabrics is boosting market growth. As lifestyles are changing, consumers are inclined towards good quality, comfortable, and visually attractive interior fabrics.

Product Insights

The upholstery products segment dominated the market and accounted for a revenue share of 52.7% in 2020. This high share is attributed to upholstered furniture such as beds, chairs, sofas, and cushions. Such products are witnessing significant demand since furniture, once upholstered, is more comfortable as it is padded and covered with a piece of fabric. Increasing purchasing power of consumers, along with improvements in the standard of living and changing lifestyles, has led to the development of luxury interior fabric-based upholstery for various types of seating furniture.

Furthermore, curtains have gained higher penetration among consumers. Curtains are widely used in most households as they provide multiple functions, such as providing privacy and blocking light. Given the fact that they are in plain sight and contribute to the ambiance, consumers pay considerable attention to the color, pattern, and material while purchasing curtains as they are considered an important aspect of interiors.

Despite its immense tensile strength, silk is generally prized for other reasons, such as its softness. Along with its incredible softness and durability, its lightweight nature has also widened its application into decorative pillows, curtains, as well as wall hangings.

While, jacquard fabrics are commonly used in home goods and upholstery, because of their thickness and texture. Although they are intricate in design, they tend to be stronger and thicker than many other types of weave. The hallmark of jacquard fabrics is that the design is woven into the fabric itself, rather than stamped, printed, or embroidered on top of it. Silk and cotton jacquard fabrics are utilized in high-end and traditional applications, while modern designers are integrating a wider variety of fibers, including linen and cotton blends.
