The DIY home improvement retailing vertical has observed a remarkable growth ever since the COVID-19 pandemic.

DIY enthusiasts across the world have been devoting time to complete home improvement projects on their own as skilled labour required for such activities has not been accessible for much of the time due to repeated lockdowns and persistent coronavirus cases. Majority of the DIY retailers are engaged in gardening practices to enliven the customers’ living spaces and keep them entertained during the lockdown situations. Such factors are driving the demand for DIY products and materials further up.

Do it yourself (DIY) is an umbrella term that mainly refers to the act of designing and modifying any project yourself. This practice allows customers to develop spectacular projects on their own without seeking professional help. The market’s target products are home improvement tools, equipment, and appliances that are used in building maintenance, plumbing and other home improvement jobs. Lifestyle changes have triggered interest in DIY interior design. In addition, the growing population of working women in developing regions and their participation in decision-making about home decor is also leading to an increase in the sales of DIY home improvement products. Using do-it-yourself products reduces long-term costs compared to outsourcing the work to expensive even if, skilled labour.
