Demand for window treatment stores is on the decline, as consumers increasingly consult general home improvement and decorations stores for their window needs on the basis of price and convenience. Over the past five years, the industry has been kept afloat by sales of customized products to affluent customers. IBISWorld expects total revenue for the Window Treatment Stores industry to decline over the five years to 2016. Over the five years to 2021, revenue is anticipated to continue its downward trend, but at a slower pace. The industry is expected to benefit slightly from increased disposable income over the next five years, which will lead consumers to spend more on curtains and specialized window furnishings. However, competition will continue to be the industry's biggest obstacle.
This industry includes specialty shops that retail indoor and outdoor window treatment products to consumers. Department stores, wholesalers, mass merchandisers and online retailers are excluded from this industry.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
