FEEDING THE DEMAND FOR INTERIOR TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS

HOME AUTOMATION

Favourable government initiatives towards energy efficiency, a resurgent construction sector, and the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT), will turn the Middle East smart home market into a US$1.86bn dollar industry by 2022, according to a recent study.

In the GCC, high per capita incomes and growing preferences for luxurious, networked and high-tech homes is also a key factor, with the UAE (US$203mn) and Saudi Arabia (US$182mn) comprising 38 percent and 34 percent respectively of the entire Middle East smart home market.

The two GCC countries will hold a similar market share right up to 2022, opening up plenty of opportunities for suppliers of home automation, security, entertainment, and energy management.

INTERIOR DESIGN TECHNOLOGY

UAE has always been at the forefront of technology adoption on flagship projects such as Al-Maktoum International Airport, Museum of the Future, Expo 2020 and many others.

New, innovative software is critical to the rise of parametric design, which is expanding the boundaries of the aesthetics and function of architecture. Different kinds of software can help architects and designers be more successful at various points throughout a project’s lifecycle. Design companies frequently present the design work using ‘live’ Virtual Reality and walkthroughs.

The future of interior design is being shaped by technology such as AI, AR / VR and automation and the rapid advances in this field are driving interest from interior designers, architects, consultants and contractors keen to give their project bid an edge over any rivals. If you are a high-tech innovative solutions provider, INDEX would be the perfect event to launch or build awareness around your products.

INDEX is such a great opportunity to meet people face-to-face. We were frustrated in not being able to interact and engage with people and demonstrate the quality and benefits of our solutions, and we were finally able to do that at INDEX. The show was very well organized. We cannot wait for the next one and are extremely satisfied with this years event.
