HGH India: Home textiles, home decor, houseware, gifts. This is their eighth year in succession, and every year I have seen it growing. I’m so happy to see 700 exhibitors here. Outstanding exhibitorship and mind-blowing customers have come in today, on the first day in spite of the heavy rains just two days back. A big thumbs up to the HGH India team; the twelve to fourteen hours of work really worked well. We believe in HGH India and they made it happen. I’m also happy to note, I personally spoke to Mr. Arun Roongta, and he has confirmed to me that they will have a fourth hall next year. That news also gives us a feeling about how the show is coming up and what kind of response it will have. Actually, in the last five years, people have been looking at HGH India to come up with new ideas, new innovations and they look to HGH India as an exhibition where the newest trends are displayed and what direction the industry is heading to. I haven’t had the time to walk around, as I’ve been extremely busy with customers at my stand but I’ve heard that the footfall is about the same at every stall. I wish HGH India all the best and I’m looking forward to HGH 2020.

Mumbai, July 04, 2019: The second day of HGH India was action packed with innovations being witnessed by visitors from across 500 Indian cities. All the segments – Home Textile, Home Décor, Houseware and Gifts continued to attract interest. The concepts of Sleep Technology and Smart Cooking generated interesting conversations on changing lifestyle and a shift towards a healthier home.

As Indians move towards an upgraded lifestyle, consumers are focusing on healthier living and sleep technology and smart cooking are the important aspects that are gaining traction. Visitors could access unique products for smarter solutions of future homes at HGH India 2019.

Commenting on the success of the second day, Mr. Geert Boettger, Director, HGH India commented, “We are glad to see continued inflow of visitors from the morning and we hope that they will make the most of the extended hours till 9.30 pm today and tomorrow, Friday July 5, 2019. This year we have seen the industry react very positively to the idea healthy living in home products which strengthens our belief to launch the concepts of smart kitchen, sleep technology, Swachh Bharat at HGH 2020.”

Sleep Technology – Better sleep quality improves energy, productivity, health and overall happiness quotient of an individual. New technology like TENCELTM Lyocell fibres from Austria ensures better sleep quality with higher recovery rate and improved relaxation. The technology also maintains environmental balance by being integrated into nature’s cycle. The top benefits include biodegradability, minimal static charge, moisture management, prevention of bacterial growth, long-lasting softness among others. Indian brands like D’Décor and Featherlite mattresses are using this technology with blended cotton for offering best solution to the market. Other mattress brands like King Koil, Centuary, I Sleep, Duraflex have also been introducing new innovations to improve sleep cycles.

One of the Exhibitors, Harry Lumen, Brand Manager, Centuary Mattresses, shared his views, “Technology driven mattresses is the latest buzz in the industry. Consumers now want their wearables connected to their mattress to track their sleep habits. These mattresses can also record heartbeats, pulse, and sleep cycles. As a result of further development of this technology, mattresses are also hooked up to gadgets that can analyze your dream patterns. There is a lot of data recorded, and this is definitely going to revolutionize the mattress industry.”

Smart Cooking – In spite of the fast paced life and multiple dining options, enjoying a home cooked meal remains a comfort for the Indian household. To cater to the new age consumer, the cookware sector has adapted to meet diverse requirements coupled with functionality. To meet the demands of both traditional and modern cooks, the smart kitchen has emerged, run by technology, and is connected to the internet, and largely uses electricity over gas stoves. Products like induction based cookers, smart cookers, crockpots, insta-pots, nutri-fresh blenders, and more have emerged, with several innovative features. Some of the top brands of cookware that offer smart kitchen solutions were Stahl, Borosil, Wonderchef among others.

Rajiv Agarwal, Managing Director, Stahl, spoke about the transition taking place in India saying, “Pressure cooking is popular in India, however, we are still using a largely first generation version of cookers, as compared to our Western counterparts. The rest of the world has moved on to the third generation of pressure cookers, which work with intelligence, and run on AI. It will definitely be interesting to see the evolution in the sector over the next ten years.”

Smart cookware has also emerged as a popular choice, due to the increased health consciousness among Indians. Made using a variety of materials, including glass, enamel, non-stick coatings, stainless steel, and tri-ply, which use less oil, and ensure that nutrients are retained, and food is cooked faster.

This and more can be seen at HGH India 2019. After the first exciting two days of HGH India 2019, we look forward to another successful day on Friday, July 5, 2019.

The Trend Book reflects the influence of social and technological changes on home product market next year. Manufacturers, brands, retailers and professionals will find this trend book useful toinnovate their products, designs and sourcing to appeal to the aspirational Indian consumers.

The Four Trends unveiled under the theme are:

Flight of Fancy
Flight of fancy is a trend for everyone embracing the NEW: newest apps and high tech features are most welcome; for instance, latest gadgets and technology, performing almost everything and communicating with other gadgets. The aesthetics of this tech-savvy lifestyle asks for sensational colours and materials, based on futuristic visions of the past: neon-light in the dark, laser swords, sparkling starlight on the ceiling and polar lights: a drama created by contrasting dark and light, visualising speed and sensing electronic sounds. The corresponding colours are: blue in warm shades and greys, turquoise, violet, magenta, yellow ochre and apple green. Shiny velvet is a great issue, playful with the incoming illumination; but also a lot of synthetic materials and surfaces as neoprene or metallic effects jump into the eyes. Metal is lavishly used on furniture with sharp edges and strong shapes. Patterns vary between clear-cut geometric or otherwise opulent floral motives in exciting digital prints. In cosmetics, extravaganza and show-off is displayed most fashionable by a dark eyeshadow-palette reflecting a masculine luxurious tonus within the high-tech scene

The Flaneur
In comparison to many other societies, the Indian consumer is not convinced merely by the sound name of a brand. He searches for quality and is very much aware of value for money to make his choice. He is open to the world, a real flaneur, embracing beauty as well as function. At its time, Art Deco represented modernism and immediately turned into fashion. Its products included both individually crafted luxury items and mass-produced goods, but in either case, the intention was to create a sleek and discreet elegance, representing wealth and outstanding sophistication. The features of the flaneur-style are simple and clean shapes with less floral design as we know it from the Art Deco language, but in ludic interaction with symmetry and geometry. They reflect the striking modernity of machine made, bearing typical design features in relative simplicity, planarity, symmetry and unvaried repetition of elements. Pleasure and sensuality is celebrated, as well as theatre, beautiful chinaware, lovely laid tables in earthly colourfulness provides warmth. The colours are dimmed, soft and fancy as butterscotch, burnt coral, caramel, Pompeian red or zinfandel, combined with comfortable wooden furniture, heavy decorative textiles, becoming a great inspiration for jewellery design.

Juicy Beats
Juicy beats is inspired by fun, eternal spring and a most lovable and classic retro-style. It reflects the desire of people to change, to make a difference in their lives, to step out of routine, but still stay put in the group. Sweet feminine colours catch people on their bright side and emphasise on what might change our immediate surrounding into something a tiny little bit better. They open young peoples’ minds with new and good vibes, easy to put in practice without hesitation by this tiny retro-hint, they create passages and bridges for the ages to understand each other. The charming retro image of old photos of the 70‘s with bleached colours, highlighted by the colours of light reflections. Holography expresses this lifestyle, with its changing, almost moving colours, corresponding to light, bright as life can be: with playful stripes, dots, flowers, colour shading and blurring, all fresh and bright for wallpapers, home textiles and table ware, stationery and decorative objects.

Tribal Safari
The tribal safari trend reminds us that our planet Earth and all nature are an endless source of inspiration and deserves more attention in threatening times than ever before in history. Warm earthy colours take care of cosiness in the rooms, such to provide a restful refuge. With love for natural materials, we create a home that grounds us. Tribal Safari celebrates the scenery with the beauty of imperfection. Ethnic patterns and handmade-objects show off an uncomplicated leisure oriented ethnic trend. Dark woods, huge cushions, haptic surfaces, rugs and pottery add to an impressive surrounding. People are increasingly searching for an alternative to industrialised life and fast consumption and leading towards a sustainable future. In the coming years, aesthetically and internationally, the ethnic lifestyle will get a load of influence from Africa. We will see a lot of ethnical masks in interior decoration layers as well as ethnic inspired objects, for instance dream-catchers or ritual jewellery.

HGH India 2019, India’s largest trade show for home textiles, home décor, houseware and gifts is being held at the Bombay Exhibition Centre from July 2-4, 2019. The trends forecasted in ‘Beyond Shapes – Universal Future’ are also available compiled in a trend book, They have a physical manifestation at a generously dimensioned special area in HGH India 2019 named the Trends Pavilion in Hall 1.

Kochi Consumers Looking To Splurge On Home Decor

Kochi, April 10, 2019 – Kochi, the port-city of Kerala, is not only known for its scenic beauty but also as one of the important trading hubs of India. The steady growth of over 25% in demand for home products like home textiles, houseware, home décor and gifts make Kerala in general and Kochi in particular, a lucrative market for these categories. These growth figures clearly indicate that the city’s consumers have higher aspirations and more disposable income than the rest of the state and the country. Observing these trends, Mr. Arun Roongta, Managing Director, HGH India, the largest trade show for Indian Home Product market, addressed the media at Kochi on April 10, 2019.

Food, Clothing and Shelter – in the order of priority, are the basic needs for humans. Having met the need for food and clothing to a large extent, the urban middle class Indian is now aspiring for a better and smarter home which is consequentially reflected in the increased activity in the real estate and home-related industries. Thanks to a higher number of NRIs in Kerala, consumers have high international exposure and more disposable income than rest of India and are consistently looking to upgrade their homes and lifestyle. With people starting to look at homes as a reflection of their standards, homes have become a status symbol and as a result home textiles, home décor and houseware products are experiencing a demand surge in most parts of the country.

Mr. Arun Roongta, Managing Director, HGH India, shared his observations stating, “Compared to rest of the country we witness still a low participation by exhibitors and visitors from the southern states, particularly Kerala with only 8 exhibitors and 515 trade visitors attending HGH India. Retailers, Institutional buyers and Interior designers from the cities like Kochi, Trivandrum, Madurai, Bangalore and Hyderabad have increased their presence at the tradeshow owing to the establishment of hundreds of new stores and the expansion of the existing stores of home products. The average demand for home textile, home décor and houseware in these cities is growing at 25-30% which is above the national average of 20%.”

Speaking about the growth potential of Kochi, Mr. Abdul Nazar, Managing Partner of Mahmood Crockery, one of the largest houseware & home decor in the city said, “Mahmood crockery has grown from a small crockery store to a twin-storey full-fledged home products and retail store, housing a wide range of items sourced from across India and the world. HGH India has been a great sourcing hub for retailers like us. Premium and luxury products have seen rapid growth in demand. We look forward to HGH India every year to gain access to upcoming trends and increasing variety of decorative accessories and houseware products, to meet the demands of our customer base in Kochi.”

HGH India has seen an increasing number of visitors from Kerala, year after year. From 2017 to 2018 there was an increase of 35% in the number of visitors. Kochi being a leading urban center and the largest cosmopolitan metropolis in Kerala, it reflects the high potential of this state in contributing to the demand and supply side of home textiles, home décor and houseware markets in India. Many of the Indian as well as International brands of curtains, furnishing fabrics, durries & carpets, bed sheets, readymade mattresses, towels, cookware, cutlery, storage & plastic houseware, glassware, crockery, kitchen appliances, decorative accessories, wallpapers, etc. are increasingly trying to reach out to distributors and retailers in Kerala.

With the consumer demand growing at over 25% per annum, not only many of the existing stores specialising in these sectors are expanding their size and operations, many new stores are coming up all over the city.

Mr. Arun Roongta, Managing Director, HGH India a focussed trade show for the home products market in India, visited Ahmedabad to share the progress of the 8th annual edition of this show, with specific reference to Gujarat. Sharing some interesting insights, he said, “Ahmedabad, is among the richest cities in India with an estimated GDP of $68 billion. GSDP of Gujarat increased at a CAGR from 2011-12 to 2016-17 of 13.47 per cent. Besides, a large amount of industrial investments in different sectors and infrastructure makes it one of the most rapidly growing states in India. Cities like Ahmedabad, Surat, Vadodara, Rajkot, Bhavnagar, Gandhidham already have their traditional manufacturing and commercial base. Consumers in Gujarat have always valued decorating and upgrading their homes as part of their culture.

HGH India offers a platform for 700 brands & manufacturers from 32 countries to showcase their products and 35,000 retailers and institutional buyers from 480 cities and towns across India to source products from across India for their business.”

Interaction with leading retailers of Ahmedabad and Surat clearly reveals that demand for products like furnishing fabrics, wallpapers, curtains, blinds, readymade mattresses, bed sheets, decorative made-ups is growing consistently between 20% to 50%, depending on the item. Similarly, consumers in Gujarat are now increasingly preferring branded tableware, kitchen tools, cookware, kitchen appliances, storage & containers and general houseware. Both international and domestic brands are experiencing high market growth in the state of Gujarat.

Mr. Vinod Arora, Managing Director, Drape Shoppe, a leading home retailer of Ahmedabad, added, “Ahmedabad’s home textiles, decorative accessories and houseware market is growing by over 25% per annum. Consumers here are seeking improved designs and quality in the products they buy and are willing to pay a premium. This is a significant change in the profile of the market here and retailers will have to offer them products accordingly, in order to stay in the business. Shopping habits in the city have undergone a change. Consumers today seek comprehensive solutions for their homes under one roof and want to shop in a comfortable environment. Our new 30,000 sq. feet store is an example of how we have evolved, in keeping with the changing consumer lifestyle.”

On the supply side, Ahmedabad has always been recognised as a hub for textile processing in India, with one of the largest capacities for wide width bedsheet printing in its hundreds of process houses. Gradually, the city has also expanded to become an important production centre for plastic houseware. Besides, several manufacturers and importers of melamine, ceramic & pottery, decorative hardware, wallpapers and several houseware and decorative accessories have come up in cities like Ahmedabad, Surat, Vadodara, Vapi, Rajkot & Bhavnagar to cater to not only the rising demand within the state, but also in the national and international markets.

Rising number of Exhibitors and visitors from Gujarat at HGH India year after year clearly reflects the high potential of this state in contributing to both the demand and supply side of home textiles, home décor and houseware markets in India. We are confident that in the forthcoming eight edition of HGH India which is slated for July 2-4, 2019 in Mumbai, we will see even larger presence of brands, manufacturers, distributors, retailers and institutional buyers from Gujarat.”

UP’s emerging opportunities in Indian home products market

Lucknow, 6th March 2019: Lucknow, besides being the state capital, is a rapidly emerging mini-metro with its various infrastructure development programs. It is poised to become a centre of growth for Uttar Pradesh, one of India’s most populated states. Lifestyle changes in the city’s educated and aspirational youth, which are large in numbers, is leading to the growth of the home products market in this city. Lucknow is also one of the top emerging retail markets of India. Having analysed these opportunities, Mr. Arun Roongta, Managing Director, HGH India provided some interesting insights into the subject with the media in a press meet on 6th March 2019.

Uttar Pradesh houses India’s biggest and flourishing handicraft centres, which have carved a niche for themselves in the global markets with their uniquely created home décor, home textiles and houseware products. Lucknow’s Chikankari, Moradabad’s brass and metal work, Saharanpur’s wood crafting, Firozabad’s glass work, Bhadohi’s expertise in handmade carpets, Kanpur’s leather products and Agra’s marble work are well- known across the world. While all these centres have made their mark in the international market, they have not tapped the huge market opportunities offered by India’s domestic market in an organised manner. Today, India is one of the biggest global market for home products growing at 25% per annum. World’s leading brands and producers are focussing on India as their top 3 potential markets. There is no reason why the Indian exporters should not tap this market opportunity to their benefit and create their own brands in these segments. Uttar Pradesh must act in time to take the market lead in India.

Hence, Uttar Pradesh has a dual opportunity in the Indian domestic market to become a centre of activity for home products in India. While large cities like Lucknow and Kanpur are emerging big retail and consumption centres, various handicraft centres can emerge as leading suppliers across the country.

When we specifically look at Lucknow, a recent report by ANAROCK mentions that 35% of luxury retail consumption in India comes from Tier II and Tier III cities, making Lucknow among 11 other cities in the country, as the top retail destination. In the last couple of years many retail real estate developers have ventured into the city and some are expected to set up business in 2019. Given the changing lifestyle patterns, growing spending power and home being an important aspect of life, makes Lucknow a potential market of the growing home industry.

Speaking to the media, Mr. Roongta said, “Nearly 100 million of India’s growing middle class currently live in Tier-II cities, and are becoming the new target audience for many large retailers. Home is rapidly emerging as an important segment not only for metros but for mini metros like Lucknow where people are showing greater interest in buying home products. Retailers and wholesalers of Uttar Pradesh and specifically Lucknow can use HGH India as a platform to source innovative, world-class products to meet the growing demand of the urban population here. We are also committed to connecting the best of Uttar Pradesh to the retailers and distributors from all over India. Manufacturers from the state will find great business opportunities in a trade show like HGH India where retailers from across the country and other countries come to source home products. We welcome visitors and manufacturers to the upcoming eighth annual edition of HGH India from July 2-4, 2019 in Mumbai and experience a positive difference in their business.”

Tapping Into Hyderabad’s Eclectic Home Decor Market

Hyderabad, Feb 28, 2019: As Hyderabad, the City of Nawabs is experiencing over 25% growth in its retail buying since last couple of years and is expected to sustain this growth rate over the next few years, HGH India has decided to bring the twin cities’ home products market under its primary focus.

Taking the growth story forward in Hyderabad’s home market, consisting of home textiles, decorative accessories and houseware, is the city’s unique blend of tradition and modernity. Their co-existence is reflected in the rapidly growing number of home stores in the twin cities. The intricate traditional craftsmanship of Hyderabad resonates perfectly with its modern twin city, Secunderabad.

Offering innovations and new product ideas from over 30 countries across the world to the retailers, wholesalers, importers and distributors of this eclectic market is HGH India, the annual trade show for home textiles, home décor, houseware and gifts. Demand for these products in Hyderabad is growing at over 25% to 30% per annum, according to the city’s leading retailers for home products.

Mr. Arun Roongta, Managing Director, HGH India elaborated on what makes Hyderabad so lucrative for manufacturers, brands and retailers in all segments of home products during a media interaction at Hyderabad on 28th Feb 2019.

Describing the potential of Hyderabad market, he said, ‘Hyderabad is a city with rich cultural heritage and traditions which is rapidly adopting to the modern and contemporary lifestyle. With rising per capita incomes and growing affluence of consumers in this city, the demand for more innovative, time- saving and convenience-oriented home products is bound to grow here. HGH India is focused on bringing, high-quality products from reputed Indian and international brands, skilled craftspersons from across the country and innovative designers to the Indian retailers, who can in turn reach them to aspirational and upwardly mobile consumers. Hyderabad is vibrant and growing city with thriving consumption. Since we constantly strive to provide a business ecosystem to home retailers and manufacturers in order to showcase their creations through HGH India, we feel that HGH India is positioned to ensure big growth opportunities to everyone connected with home business in Hyderabad and the entire state of Telangana.

With Hyderabad increasing investments in manufacturing and service industries, migration from other states has reached an all-time high. This has led to a boom in demand for more houses, rented or owned along with all other allied products associated with setting up of new homes. The thriving start-up industry has enabled many, young, aspirational people with spending power to shift to Hyderabad, adding another dimension to growth in the city’s affluent population.

For four consecutive years, Hyderabad has ranked first in the ‘Quality Of Life Index’ in India. The city is invariably poised at the cusp of an artistic renaissance especially since the standard and quality of life has improved dramatically. The citizens of Hyderabad have developed a taste for the unconventional, merged with modernity, with a hint of its rich cultural heritage, and this reflects in their homes and choice of home décor. This generation considers home décor as a primary need and is willing to invest in unique and innovative products that set their homes apart. In keeping with this need to innovate, traditional Hyderabadi artisans are toiling to improvise and use their traditional skills to develop new designs, particularity in the carpet and upholstery market.

Elated with the rising demand, Suleman Hirani, Managing Director of Darpan Furnishings, a leading retailer of home textiles, decorative accessories and houseware products says, “One of the prime reasons that Darpan Furnishings could source the best products from across the country and bring it under one roof was our annual visit to HGH India. HGH India gives us access to large number of national and international brands and manufacturers who are out of our reach otherwise. It helps us to source innovative products, designs and superior quality products from the newer sources and offer them the consumers in Hyderabad.”

For textiles and objects, transparency effects are of interest as foils and vinyl, coloured transparent plastic and LED light décor. Vibrant colours are combined with black and white; neon colours give a striking accent.

Soft shades of Nature: An atmosphere of privacy and spa, cosy and comfort is created through this trend. The upholstery is held in fine textures for a relaxing upscale ambiance. Gentle colour fading, laces, net, shiny silk, mettallic yarn effects and sequins work are displayed mainly in floral décor.

A lot of velvet, rich jacquard and textured fabrics are introduced as being newly inspired by nature. Huge green plants or dark tinted wallpaper with blu-greenish vegetal design or bed linen indiscreet greens escort the mind into epicurean spheres of a connoisseur.

Ecological commitment is present against casual décor offering a hint of surprising harmony. The aesthetics of handmade products are applied to all kind of consumer goods.
