Global Economy:

The global economy enters 2022 in a weaker position than previously expected. Rising energy prices and supply disruptions have resulted in higher and more broad-based inflation than anticipated in many emerging markets and developing economies. Global growth is expected to moderate from 5.9 in 2021 to 4.4 percent in 2022—half a percentage point lower for 2022 than in the October World Economic Outlook (WEO), largely reflecting forecast markdowns in the two largest economies.

Monetary policy in many countries will need to continue on a tightening path to curb inflation pressures, while fiscal policy operating with more limited space than earlier in the pandemic—will need to prioritize health and social spending while focusing support on the worst affected. In this context, international cooperation will be essential to preserve access to liquidity and expedite orderly debt restructurings where needed. Investing in climate policies remains imperative to reduce the risk of catastrophic climate change.

Indian Economy:

According to Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, the economic Forecast Summary published in December 2021 highlighted that, after the second infection wave that peaked in May 2021, the recovery was gaining momentum, and GDP was projected to grow at 9.4% in the fiscal year (FY) 2021-22 before reverting to 8.1% in FY 2022-23 and 5% percent in FY 2023-24. Inflation remained close to the upper band of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) but should ebb as supply chain disruptions are overcome.

The appearance of a new virus variant, especially if combined with a relaxation of attitudes, is the major downside risk, together with a less supportive global economic and financial environment.

The macroeconomic policy mix is well-balanced. The RBI stands ready to act forcefully if increases in global commodity prices feed into wages and then to core prices. The government is also committed to investing more in social and physical infrastructure, although well-targeted, direct fiscal support to vulnerable households and firms should also be increased.

Industry Structure and Development:

India Woodwork Industry is one of the fastest-growing industries in Indias economy. India possesses around 100,000 registered wood-ware units and more than 200,000 artisans along with countless other woodworking-related units in the sector. Wood has always been a major part of Indian handicrafts and various beautiful things are crafted out of it. India Woodwork Industry has not only specialized in serving an architectural purpose but also manufactures furniture both in traditional as well as ultramodern styles.

In the rural areas of India, furniture and other household utensils are carved out of wood in different shapes and styles.

The wood furniture market in India is competitive due to the presence of a large number of small and local manufacturers in the market, accounting for a larger share in production. Southern and Northern India has a high demand for furniture products, but it is in the South where most manufacturers and distribution networks exist. The need for kiln-dried hardwood lumber exported from the United States has been rising by the importers and manufacturers in the market.

The Indian wooden furniture market has enormous opportunities for manufacturers to innovate and deal with growing demand in the wood furniture market. Local manufactures are partnering with foreign manufacturers to improve their quality and designs in the market. The need for modular furniture provides immense opportunities for wooden furniture and hardware owners in the market. Furniture manufacturers are considering several factors while designing furniture, such as the furnitures functionality, look, feel, and value while designing furniture.
