Unlock the latest in furniture & interiors at INDEX PLUS: Where Trends Meet Opportunity

The timing for INDEX PLUS couldn't be more opportune. The Indian Furniture Market size is estimated at USD 17.56 billion in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 29.86 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 11.20% during the forecast period (2024-2029). The Indian furniture industry is one of the leading producers, consumers, and exporters of furniture. The burgeoning demand for interior design services is fueled by factors such as the growing real estate market, rising income levels, urbanization, and the influence of social media on lifestyle trends.

Additionally, the rising demand for home decor products and handcrafted items underscores the tremendous potential of India's home furnishing market, making INDEX PLUS a must-attend event for industry professionals and enthusiasts alike.

Speaking on the occasion, Sonia Prashar, Managing Director, and Chairperson of the Board at NuernbergMesse India, spoke about the potential of the event, “India is the 5th largest producer and 4th largest consumer of furniture globally. In fact, the Indian interior design market is currently thriving at a remarkable 10.3% annual growth rate projected to reach $51.4 billion by 2028. By 2030 it will become the largest and youngest consumer market in the world.

In this favorable scenario, INDEX PLUS emerges as a dynamic platform for global enterprises and presents an unparalleled opportunity to forge new business ventures, strengthen existing ties, as well as engage with diverse buyers, industry leaders, and trade associations.
