In a bid to help consumers in making effective decisions apropos purchases of home textiles, style profiling has gained utmost importance by articulating preferences and narrowing down scope of choices of consumers. Several entrepreneurs, aware of challenges involved in product marketing, are tailoring their merchandizing strategies to organize their products on the basis of theme, instead of category. The global textile home décor market involves a long supply chain, which in turn adds to cost of the final product. Therefore, companies are focusing on remodeling the supply chain and trimming the price tags, by working directly with manufacturers.

Prevailing consumer confidence and broader economic trends directly impact demand for home décor textiles. With key economies across the globe making a steady recovery, a steady spike has been observed in consumer confidence over the past couple of years. According to Reserve Bank of India’s December 2017 round of Consumer Confidence Survey (CCS), Households’ current perceptions on the general economic situation improved and edged up towards the neutral level after five quarters of pessimism.
According to OECD’s Consumer Confidence Index (CCI), consumer confidence has witnessed a steady growth in the last couple of years. In February 2018, the OECD CCI was at 101.10 (with long term average at 100), signifying a positive perception among consumers on the economy. Positive perception on the entire economy is traditionally linked with increasing activities pertaining to home refurbishment. Sustained period of greater consumer confidence can be a key future growth determinant for the global home décor textiles market.
