Market Dynamic


Ready-to-assemble furniture (RTA) is a type of furniture that is easy to assemble and transport. Consequently, this type of furniture has become more popular and widely used than flooring materials. Moreover, the increased demand for RTA furniture contributes to its price since it requires fewer raw materials than other conventional types of furniture. Rising disposable income and urbanization, as well as expenditure on infrastructure improvement, mainly in commercial and residential sectors, are the major driving factors for the growth of RTA furniture.


Inkjet printers, essentially computer-controlled printers, can be used to print decorative surfaces like wall stickers using different types of inks, producing a wide range of design patterns and designs. This has made it more economical than decorative laminates, which are costly. Another advantage is that inkjet printers come with a wider color gamut than standard printing technologies. Thus, color tones or shades can be reproduced easily on the surface of various types of materials.


Over the past several years, the residential building industry has significantly recovered, a major factor in the decorative plastic and paper laminates industry’s sales growth. As lifestyle has become faster-paced, there is a growing desire for more vibrant and engaging public spaces. This new trend will lead to the exploitation of the visual potential of laminates in modern design. Laminated flooring is easy to install and can be adapted depending on the current configuration.
