As a result of the pandemic, eCommerce witnessed a tremendous rise in 2020, which remains steady in 2021. LogiNext, the logistics technology firm backed by Tiger Global, today shared data that showed an upsurge in the demand for home office furniture (300% growth), living room seating like recliners (50% growth), and beds and mattresses (50% growth).
This demand for home office furniture comes amidst a massive change in consumer buying habits, which have transitioned to online models. Within this space, LogiNext has witnessed an overall 125% rise in orders for delivering big and bulky goods since January 2021 alone.
“Major retail outlets dealing in furniture, appliances, and mattresses are adopting technology to enable online sales of items which were previously unheard of. Throughout the last year and from the onset of 2021, buying behavior has drastically shifted and for companies to survive, adopting technology has been the only answer,” says Mradul Khandelwal, Co-Founder, LogiNext.
LogiNext also predicts that post unlocking, the trend of buying big and bulky goods is likely to stick, owing to an entirely new demographic coming online as well the convenience and safety it brings in.
