A cabinet is a box-shaped, essential piece of furniture with drawers or doors for storing various items. Closed storage cabinets can be standalone or built or attached to a wall. They are typically made up of wood and usually have one or more doors and drawers or shelves. A cabinet intended to be used in a bedroom has numerous drawers that are usually placed one above the other in one or more columns. They are anticipated to be used for clothing and other related items and help in maintaining order. These cabinets may vary in width and height. For instance, wall cabinets can go all the way to the ceiling, utilizing even the uppermost inches for rarely used items. Closed storage cabinets either come pre-made in range of sizes or sometimes require assembly. In addition, consumers opt for semi-custom units as they offer more choice of dimensions to provide an exact fit for wall space.
Key factors driving the closed storage cabinets market are changes in lifestyle, rapid urbanization redefining the way interiors are conceptualized, and rise in demand for storage cabinets for cooking accessories. The market is expected to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period due to a rise in disposable income and the need for modular storage cabinets. Closed storage cabinets come in a number of designs and price ranges and can be customized according to consumer requirements depending on budget, taste, and personal preference. In addition, consumers can color-coordinate the cabinets with the kitchen or can contrast them with the house theme. The market is significantly driven by the residential construction industry and is expected to expand at a fast pace in the near future. In addition, an expansion in the construction industry in the emerging economies of Asia Pacific such as China and India is creating opportunities for the market.
