Omni-channel retailing provides customers with the option of multiple channels for shopping, and owing to its convenience, the channel is fast becoming the norm for the majority of vendors. This channel offers consumers with an option to order products online and get it delivered through brick-and-mortar stores on the same day at their convenience. This integration of physical and digital retailing is a major factor for the growing demand of such shopping experiences, especially for consumers who lead hectic lifestyles.”

Construction of commercial buildings is also anticipated to increase during the forecast period. Spending on non-residential construction in the US will likely increase by approximately 5% and reach $500 billion in 2019. As blinds and shades are used as essential items in both residential and commercial buildings, the growing construction activities will drive the market growth over the next five years.
Further, the report states that risk of strangulation will be one of the challenges against the growth of the market. Consumers prefer purchasing products that are cost-effective. The discretionary purchase behavior of consumers is posting a decline in the market as most US consumers for blinds and shades are price-sensitive. This also reduces the brand loyalty toward particular vendors as consumers tend to opt for value-for-money products. Lack of product differentiation and easy availability of similar products at varying price-points also tend to limit brand loyalty.
