Wallpaper Market Size & Trends

The global wallpaper market size was valued at USD 1.80 billion in 2023 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.4% from 2024 to 2030. The rising adoption of home renovation activities coupled with technological advancements in printing techniques for wallpapers has been significantly driving the demand for wallpaper. Furthermore, rising disposable income, a shift in consumer preferences, and increasing DIY projects involving the usage of wallpapers are expected to drive the demand in the coming years.

U.S. Wallpaper Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

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 garden and home products during the lockdown. In the coming years, the global market is anticipated to showcase promising growth with the advent of new graphic design and new production capabilities.

Manufacturers in the wallpaper industry segregate the products based on residential and commercial usage, as both types require different types of paper, varying in thickness and weight. 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.

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 to provide products and solutions to combat issues regarding bacterial growth. Additionally, in recent years companies like Sangetsu Corporation and York wallcoverings have launched several products which are stain and damage resistant.

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 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 the near future and contribute to the 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.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

Market players are expected to increase their focus on innovation with increasing R&D activities. The number of mergers & acquisitions in the market is expected to increase over the forecast period as companies are focusing on expanding their geographic reach.

Wallpaper Market Concentration & Characteristics

Strategies such as mergers & acquisitions, partnership, and collaborating with other companies, designers, or celebrities, players can achieve new customers, distribution channels, and techniques, which would otherwise be difficult to access on their own. In March 2022, Graham & Brown Ltd partnered with British heritage brand Laura Ashley to launch a new line of wallpaper, which included 80 designs and several murals. The wallpapers featured “paste the wall” technology, making it easier for consumers to install it.

The wallpaper market is also subject to high regulatory scrutiny owing to the high demand and usage of the product. Regulations for wallpaper generally specified about safety standards, limits on volatile organic compound (VOC) emission from wallpaper. Also, compliance with standards related to sustainable sourcing of raw materials are to be included on the labeling requirements.

There are moderate number of direct product substitutes for wallpaper. Application of paint over the walls requires less tedious process thereby generating competition from the paint industry. However, wallpapers offers several advantages to homeowners who are looking for cheap and aesthetically pleasing wall décor.

The growing trend of home remodeling among the end-user is driving the product demand among consumers. High adoption rate of new products is observed among millennials, which is expected to benefit product consumption in the coming years. Understanding these demographics and their motivations is crucial for manufacturers and retailers to develop effective marketing strategies and target specific customer segments.

Product Insights

Vinyl-based wallpaper dominated the global market with a significant revenue share of around 37% in 2023.

The demand for vinyl-based products is anticipated to rise in the coming years on account of their damage repair characteristics and ease of use. Its fire-resistant properties make it a desirable choice for high-traffic areas like schools and medical centers.

Non-woven wallpaper segment is expected to register a CAGR of 5.4% from 2024 to 2030. The growing trend for DIYs is one of the major factors boosting the demand for nonwoven wallpaper. This wallpaper can be directly pasted to the wall and can perfectly hide cracks in the wall. They are easy to remove subsequently offering smoothness and an aesthetic look to the wall. Consumers in the market prefer nonwoven wallpapers as they support digital printing and effectively avoid the problem of molding.

End-Use Insights

Commercial wallpaper dominated the global market with a significant revenue share of around 52% in 2023. Growing urbanization, coupled with the expansion of supermarkets and hypermarkets to further extend their reach to maximum consumers, is anticipated to drive product sales through offline end-user channels across the globe over the forecast period. Moreover, a rise in the number of high-traffic spaces like bars, clubs, and restaurants across the globe is the key factor driving the demand in the commercial segment.

Global Wallpaper Market share and size, 2023

Residential wallpaper segment is expected to expand at a growth of 4.7% during the forecast period. An increase in internet penetration among the middle-class population, coupled with the rising use of smartphones and similar devices, is the key factor driving the popularity of online channels in the global industry.
