“The essence of interior design will always be about people and how they live.

This is not an easy job”, said Albert Hadley, a renowned interior designer, while pointing out the importance of the interior designing industry.

Interior designing plays a prominent role in our everyday lives and makes our lifestyle more stylish and modern. It introduces us to elegance, aesthetics and helps to raise the functionality in our lives.

According to the report prepared by Technavio, the growth in demand from commercial infrastructure is contributing to the growth of interior design services. The report says that there are many key drivers and trends that would lead to the growth of the interior designing industry. Some of them are:

1. Rising Demand for Luxurious Spaces

Consumers are shifting towards leisure, resulting in rising shopping store renovations, the introduction of smart workstations, conglomerate’s business stores, and enhanced luxurious interiors in hotels. In addition, there has been a rise in demand for smart planning and technology integrated design services. This is leading to an increase in demand for innovative interior design that incorporates recreational activity areas, advanced IT infrastructure, and sustainable and wellness-focused designs.

2. Development of Government Institutes

The development of smart cities, smart government institutes, airports, healthcare, and infrastructure by the government will also boost the growth of the interior design service market during the forecast period.

3. Increasing Demand for improved residential spaces

The demand for luxurious personalized kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms and houses is also increasing among consumers. Urbanization and the rise in consumer awareness about the impact of the interior environment on lifestyle is resulting in increased demand for flexible spaces, living rooms, and other residential spaces. The residential space dominates the global interior design market owing to the growth in the income and purchasing power of the consumers and home-ownership rates.

Due to rising exposure to various cultures and global trends, people are getting exposed to new and unique designs and decorations, leading to consumers hiring interior designing services. This is prompting Interior designers to offer innovative design solutions that maximize space and ensures near-zero wastage. “The increase in construction activities and introduction of premium interior designing services are some other major factors that will boost market growth during the forecast period,” says a senior analyst at Technavio.
