Interior decorating and domestic furnishing: an important sector
The interior design and domestic furnishing sector is expanding. In 2013 this global market had an estimated worth of 2 billion dollars and is projected to become a 2.7 billion dollar market by 2017.
The Arab States of the Persian Gulf play a major role in this business sector’s expansion. In this region the United Arab Emirates is one of the leading countries, with its expenditures in interior decoration and furnishing estimated at 298 million dollars in retail sales.
Dubai’s role is particularly important. 2.2 million m2 of the city are dedicated to shopping and 500,000 m2 of this area are currently under construction.
The domestic decoration sector is seeing a large boom due to numerous hotel and residential projects which are underway. Domestic furnishing is also in high demand because of an increase in population. Dubai is also a regional tourist hub. This city’s rapid population growth, rising incomes, economic stability and increase in consumer consumption all contribute to the Emirates’ flourishing economy.
The 2020 World’s Fair will be held in Dubai because it is such an attractive destination for retailers. The country’s hotel industry will increase from 100,000 to 200,000 rooms in the next five years.
