Market Dynamics of the Middle East and Africa Tiny Homes Market
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, opportunities, restraints, and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail below:
- Increasing usage of tiny homes in tourism activities
Tiny homes do not require permits in many parts of the world as they are considered vehicles. Many families have invested in tiny houses and then rented them to people. Some service providers even rent their tiny homes in various architectural and decor styles. These styles depict modern or minimalist to rustic or traditional as a unique alternative to the hotel stay. They equip the tiny homes with a kitchen, living space, bathroom, and sleeping area. Various factors, such as globalization, internet penetration, and growing social media influence, have boosted the demand for tiny homes. Furthermore, new lifestyles, higher disposable incomes, and increasing consumer environmental awareness create demand for tiny homes. This, in turn, is expected to act as a driver for the growth of the Middle East and Africa tiny homes market.
- Rising inflation leads to a rise in living costs
Interest rates on home loans have prompted consumers to seek more affordable housing options. Consumers are also becoming more interested in low-maintenance, energy-efficient, and environmentally friendly homes. The growing interest in and spending on such low-cost, environmentally friendly tiny houses is expected to drive up demand for tiny houses in the coming years. Thus, the Middle East and Africa tiny house market is likely driven by rising living costs and high home loan interest rates.
- Increasing popularity of affordable housing solutions and the tiny-house movement
The tiny homes trend is rising as it is an innovative, affordable housing solution. It requires less space, land, and cost to build and can be maintained with basic amenities. Money is saved on heating, cooling, property taxes, or home maintenance. There is a huge saving on electricity, water, and energy in tiny homes compared to large houses, which require more maintenance costs.
Tiny-house movement, also known as the small-house movement, aims to downsize living spaces, simplify, and essentially "living with less." According to INTERNATIONAL CODE COUNCIL, INC., a tiny house is termed a "dwelling unit with a maximum of 37 square meters (400 sq. ft.) of floor area, excluding lofts." People have made many efforts to increase the tiny house movement.
- Less burden of maintenance as well as environment friendly
The increasing use of clear metallic oxide coating on windows to control the temperature of tiny homes requires a significantly smaller number of electronic components and fixtures than in conventional homes. Due to less area and space, the maintenance cost is less compared to a conventional home. Thus, tiny homes have less maintenance burden and are environment friendly, which is expected to drive the Middle East and Africa tiny homes market.
- Shifting consumer preference toward the environmentally friendly homes
More consumers are also being more proactive in their pursuit of adopting a more sustainable lifestyle, whether by selecting products with ethical or environmentally sustainable practices and values or by no longer purchasing certain products because they have concerns about sustainability practices or values. For most consumers, adopting a more sustainable lifestyle starts at home, recycling, composting or reducing food waste. People are also increasingly choosing the tiny home lifestyle by embracing the philosophy and freedom that comes with downsizing the living space by simplifying and living with less.
Furthermore, factors including rising living costs, increasing environmental consciousness, and rising government initiatives are creating demand in the Middle East and Africa tiny homes market. Furthermore, shifting consumer preference toward environmentally friendly homes may provide opportunities for the growth of the Middle East and Africa tiny homes market.
- Introduction of sustainable 3D printed tiny homes
The use of concrete 3D printing technology, which incorporates digital technology and the application of material technology, helps in creating various shapes and designs. It allows architects to build various shapes, such as curves, spheres, and others, in much less time and cost. 3D printing technology is an upcoming technology in the construction industry. However, there is a need to upgrade the conventional or standard methods for construction with the help of technological advancements. This, in turn, provides new opportunities for the growth of the Middle East and Africa tiny homes market.
- Low preference towards tiny homes over conventional homes
Tiny houses don't require much land to build compared to conventional homes. But many towns make it difficult to build one. Zoning laws often include a minimum size for dwellings. Such as, in North Carolina, the tiny home must be at least 150 square feet to get a building permit, and 100 square feet must be added for every additional occupant. These zoning regulations can prohibit people from buying land and building their own tiny houses on it. Sometimes to get a loan to build a tiny home is another challenge. Sometimes it is 'impossible to take standard mortgage loans as banks don't consider a tiny house to have enough value to make good collateral.
- Growing number of residential buildings
Consumers who move to their new spaces and renovate older ones stay in residential buildings. Changing lifestyle and increased disposable income motivates consumers to live in buildings and big spaces to maintain their standard and status. Due to this reason, people prefer to stay in residential buildings. Thus, a growing number of residential construction is expected to restrain the Middle East and Africa tiny homes market.
- Unsuitable for large families and issues concerning resale problems
Tiny homeowners often struggle to regulate the temperature in their homes. As a result, water builds up on the windows, walls, and furniture. There is a lack of proper ventilation and cooling systems in tiny homes. Many people who move into tiny homes with the dream of traveling later realize that it is difficult to move home from one place to another. In most cases, a bigger truck is required to be attached, drastically increasing the costs. Also, the belongings need to be tied down so that they do not fall and break while moving.
