Window Blinds Revenue Analysis 2016-2020 Vs Outlook for 2021-2031

Historically, from 2016-2020, the market for window blinds expanded at a CAGR of nearly 5% as construction stakeholders increasingly incorporate sustainable practices, such as proper insulation and the introduction of green buildings.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, demand witnessed a considerable drop, attributed to a sluggishness experienced in the global construction industry, particularly the real-estate sector. During its height, urban areas became the epicenter, reporting 90% of all active cases, prompting authorities to implement stringent lockdowns, impacting residential construction projects. Eventually, the sluggishness faded, especially since Q4 2020, prompting projections to rebound.

However, the long-term impact of the pandemic is expected to linger, as commercial establishments continue enforcing remote working guidelines, resulting in the implementation of a limited number of building projects. Based on these broader developments, sales window blinds are projected to exhibit a moderate 4.4% CAGR from 2021 to 2031.

A majority of these outcomes are a product of enhanced insulation functions within building interiors. This includes deployment of window blinds to contain heat during cooler climates, and dissipating it during warmer months.

Increasing Thermal Insulation Requirements Boosting Window Blinds Sales in North America?
