Along with the rapid shift toward urbanization, significantly rising infrastructure, and an increasing number of corporate offices, hotels, and restaurants, demand for decorative films and foils increased dramatically from the commercial sector.


The offline distribution channel dominated the global decorative films and foils market share in 2023.
