Due to this, several announcements & collaborations have been done by the project developers for the construction of new hotels, mixed-use buildings, etc. For instance:

  • In 2022, IHG signed an agreement with Al Sraiya Hotels & Hospitality Group to open & construct a 200-room Hotel Indigo Doha Lusail, which is anticipated to be completed by 2023.
  • In 2021, Hayri Atak Architectural Design Studio revealed the design of an Eco-Luxury five-star hotel for Qatar, and it is expected to be completed by 2025. The designed hotel would constitute 152 rooms, an infinity pool, rooftop bars, a spa, saunas, gymnasiums, a beach, a mini-golf club, etc.                      

Furthermore, the growing influx of expatriates as well as the increasing national population in Qatar, have been shooting up the construction of high-rise residential apartments, housing units, etc. The number of expatriates is rising in Qatar due to numerous job opportunities & lucrative salaries with low tax rates policies. For instance, according to HSBC’s Group Expat Explorer Survey 2021, Qatar was one of the top ten countries for the expatriate to live & work.

Apart from this, the rising preferences of the elite society to shift towards luxurious residential societies, to meet their housing requirements is also magnifying the construction & sales of high-end villas, bungalows, and others. Hence, supporting the sales of home furnishing items, therefore, the numerous construction activities in the residential sector are presumed to upscale the requirement for home furnishing products in the forecast years.

Qatar Furniture Market Driver:

Rising Tourism Offerings in Various Segments - Qatar has always been known for its diversified tourism offerings, such as cruise tourism, sports tourism, business events, etc. Due to this, various commercial buildings have been developed, further amplifying the sales of home furnishing items over the historical years. In Qatar, cruise tourism is popular among inbound visitors due to the presence of tourist landmarks nearby Doha port, like Souq Waqif, the Museum of Islamic Art, the Doha Corniche, and the National Museum of Qatar, etc. In line with this, the government of Qatar targeted to attract around 500,000 cruise tourists by 2026.

With this variety of tourism offerings by the government, the country has also been focusing on developing as a destination wedding hub for tourists. Owing to this, a redevelopment & new construction of magnificent ballrooms & vistas catalyzed the demand for home furnishing items such as lighting fixtures, window coverings, and indoor furniture in the following years.                    

Qatar Furniture Market Possible Restraint:

Weighty Sales of Used Furniture in Qatar to Restrict the Market - The inclination of low-income customers in Qatar has been mostly to purchase used or second-hand furniture such as beds, sofa sets, dressing tables, etc. This is due to the high cost of new home furnishing products, which, in turn, creates hesitation among customers with low-income levels. Additionally, the presence of used furniture markets with economical price offerings in Qatar, such as Najma, Al Wukair, etc., have been providing plentiful options for low-income customers or blue-collar expatriates of the country. Hence, this is expected to limit the sales of new home furnishing items in the forthcoming period.        

Qatar Furniture Market Key Trend:

Growing Prominence of Online Sales - The growth in online retail stores in various sectors, such as apparel, home appliances, etc., has had a positive impact on the sales. Many brands, like The One Qatar, Home Centre, etc., have now started their operations online as well, with easy return & replacement policies. Apart from it, numerous online websites have hi-tech virtual reality (VR) & artificial intelligence (AI) embedded in them, allowing customers to have a real-life experience of buying furniture from the stores. Further, online platforms also provide the 3D feature to check if a particular type would suit their house decor or not. Thereby increasing online sales & positively impacting the market in the coming years. For instance, IKEA Qatar offers a full range of furniture services online right from selection to professional consultation, delivery, and assembly.  

Qatar Furniture Market Growth Opportunity:

Upcoming Residential Projects to Augment the Growth - Qatar is witnessing an influx of expatriates who are coming in search of better economic opportunities. The heavy influx has resulted in an increased demand for housing & residential units. Considering it, the government in the country is focusing on the construction of well-planned smart cities, which are predicted to house a large population. These smart cities would add more housing & residential units in the country, which, in turn, would create an increased demand for articles such as beds, sofas, shelves, etc., to make the housing habitable & look decorative. Hence, the construction of new housing units is expected to boost the sales of articles, therefore creating a conducive environment for the growth of the Qatar Furniture market in the coming years.
