2016 Outlook and State of the Industry

ASID is pleased to report that the interior design business is strong and growing. Several indicators suggest that interior design has fully recovered from the recession. But interior design isn’t just growing, it’s evolving, too. Macro-trends that affect all of us (Health & Well-being, Technology, Sustainability, Urbanization, Globalization, and Resiliency) are changing the topics we consider when working on design projects. And each macro-trend has its own set of sub-trends. Holistic design thinking and higher sustainability standards are identified as the most transformative, while designing for healthy behavior and the Internet of things are two of the fastest moving. Firms that don’t adapt to the trends are at risk of getting left behind, especially as threats loom such as those posed by increased international competition and the emergence of crowdsourcing. Join this session to examine these trends and determine how the industry’s outlook will affect you and your business.
