Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Wooden Interior Door Market

The COVID-19 pandemic, which emerged in China, affected several neighboring countries such as India, South Korea, and Japan. The pandemic significantly affected the wooden interior door market share in 2020. The imposition of a ban on commercial activities disrupted the industrial supply chain, from procurement of raw materials to supply of finished goods, and experienced delays in the wooden interior door market. There was a decline in demand for wooden interior doors from residential and commercial sectors due to delays in construction and restrictions on international trade as lockdowns were imposed on the borders of countries. All these factors limited construction activities, which hampered the wooden interior door market growth in the region in 2020.

However, in 2021, with the relaxation of lockdowns and the start of the vaccination process, the shipments of raw materials started again, and construction projects resumed. Furthermore, due to the growing disposable income of consumers and the rising number of renovations and construction activities, wooden interior door manufacturers from different regions are shifting their operations to various countries in Asia Pacific. Moreover, massive growth in the construction of office spaces in this region, along with the rapid expansion of the real estate industry, is expected to influence the wooden interior door market growth in APAC.
