Over the past few years, the utilization of wooden goods in home has increased as people have started using wood for furnishing cupboards, decorating and for other purposes. Apart from this, the demand for engineered wood furniture is rising in metro cities such as Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and other major cities.
