THE EVOLUTION OF THE WOODWORKING INDUSTRY, INDIA AT THE FOREFRONT
Globally, Wood as a building material is becoming more relevant and attractive; CLT (Cross Laminated Timber) is observing a real boom. Shortage of the resource wood and increasing logistic costs are driving the search for alternative and lighter materials. Light weight panels and the usage of fast-growing materials as well as light materials are therefore witnessing an increased share in furniture production.
The demand for wooden furniture has increased manifold in India. The furniture market in India is moving from the unorganized sector to the organized industry to adapt to fast changes in the furniture market. India is the fifth largest furniture producer at a global level and the fourth largest consumer of furniture. The market was valued at $ 17.4 Bn in FY21 and is predicted to reach $ 37.7 billion by 2026, growing at a double-digit CAGR of 13.37% during 2020-2026.
Luigi De Vito, President, Eumabois (European Federation of Woodworking Machinery Manufacturers, SCM Group General Manager and SCM Wood Division Director is upbeat about the scope of the Indian market and Industry, “The furniture and flooring Industry in India is witnessing a great demand from the growing middle class, which in turn is attracting both international manufacturers as well as machinery and tooling suppliers to set up base in India. Companies like IKEA are establishing hubs in India to cater to the local demand, but also potentially to serve outlying regions like the Middle East which were otherwise being serviced through Europe. India enjoys a favourable place in the Asian market, it has the technology, the talent as also the demand. So, all in all it is for sure worthwhile to invest in India looking at the great potential the country has on offer”.
As a knowledge sharing forum, DELHIWOOD will feature multiple seminars on latest trends and innovations organized by leading Industry associations as well as Skill development programs organized by the Furniture & Fittings Skill Council of India.
