The COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the global industry. The key players witnessed supply chain discrepancies. COVID-19 has also resulted in a significant slowdown of the global economy and delayed supply chain activities. Widespread lockdown orders have spurred the demand for wallpaper among households. Several younger homeowners are spending more on home décor and remodeling activities. According to the statistics published by Klarna in May 2020, young homeowners utilized a major portion of their income on the garden and home products during the lockdown. In the coming years, the global market is expected to showcase promising growth with the advent of new graphic design and new production capabilities.

The manufacturers in the wallpaper industry segregate the products based on residential and commercial usage, as both types require different types of paper and differ in thickness and weight. The wallpapers used for residential purposes are usually available in pre-pasted or un-pasted styles. On the other hand, commercial wallpapers have several types based on thickness and usage. These wallpapers are passed through several tests and measures as these are used in high-traffic areas.

The increasing demand for stain-resistant and eco-friendly wallpapers is creating a huge demand for wallpapers among consumers. Several manufacturers are testing the humidity levels and providing products and solutions to combat issues regarding bacterial growth due to the wallpapers. Additionally, the companies like Sangetsu Corporation and York wallcoverings have launched several products which are stain and damage resistant in recent years.

Manufacturers are increasingly spending on marketing, sponsorships, and partnerships to widen their customer base. The direct-to-customer channel is highly profitable for brands that have consumer loyalty and have already invested in promotional activities to build a strong brand image and a loyal consumer base. Companies are also actively focusing on this sales strategy to increase brand loyalty among consumers. For instance, in January 2021, RoomMates Décor, a division of York Wallcoverings, a wallpaper manufacturer in North America, partnered with heritage design brand Waverly to debut a distinctively unique Peel and Stick Wallpaper program.

The wallpaper market is highly competitive due to the presence of a high number of companies with a vast strong brand image, geographic presence, and wide distribution networks. As key players across the globe focus on expanding their geographical presence, mergers & acquisitions are expected to rise in near future and contribute to industry’s growth. For instance, in June 2020, Grandeco acquired Holden Décor Ltd as a part of the company’s global expansion and to extend the wall decoration product landscape to become a Pan-European market leader. Such initiatives are expected to enable companies to enter the untapped market and widen their consumer outreach while contributing to growth.
