COVID-19 Impact on External Blinds Market:

The external blinds market dropped significantly during the COVID-19 pandemic, owing to lockdowns and slow progress in the construction industry, particularly in the real-estate sector. During the peak of the pandemic, metropolitan areas became the epicenter of cases, reporting 90% of active cases, causing authorities to impose strict lockdowns that hampered home development projects. The sluggish performance eventually diminished, notably since Q2 2021, encouraging estimates to improve. However, the pandemic's long-term effects are expected to remain as businesses continue to enforce remote working policies, resulting in the execution of a small number of construction projects.

 

During the pandemic, home renovations became more popular, although market sellers reported a drop in customized external blinds sales. This was also because of the ban on house visits. In addition, a sizable DIY industry arose as a means of facilitating "cheap home décor renovations." Trade shows were also cancelled or postponed.

The initiative/scheme received around 31 billion in funding as of August 26th, 2021.

Over the last three decades, Health Canada, a government of Canada department, has been striving to reduce the dangers associated with the use of corded blinds in Canada, prompted by an increase in the number of children dying as a result of this risk. To address this avoidable risk, Health Canada issued new corded blinds regulations in May 2019 that limit the size of loops and cord lengths on blinds (both ready-made and bespoke) sold across the country.
