Looking for Further Growth, Kujiale is Betting On Its Intelligent Custom Bathroom Design
China's property market is expected to cool further in 2019. Bathroom full customization had emerged to lead growth in home design and furnishing industry. Kujiale has reacted to this with full enthusiasm.
China's real estate industry just had a tough year in 2018, most blame the curbings launched by Chinese Government to cool down the industry. The policy will bring great benefits to the general public, but not the same for the property developers. Furthermore, the latest Reuters poll result could add more pain and sorrow to Chinese house developers, the world's second-largest economy's property market is expected to cool further in 2019, with smaller price rises and falling home sales adding to the pressure. "There will be a significant downside risk in real estate next year - it's mainly due to more visible contractions in smaller tier-3 and tier-4 cities," said an analyst with China Institute of Real Estate Appraisers and Agents (CIREA).
