The interior design industry in India is thriving. Presently the industry is valued at about 2 lakh crore and growing at a rate of 7.5% CAGR; it is expected to reach 3 lakh crore by 2027. The growth in metro and tier 1 cities is fueled by rapid urbanization. Another reason contributing to the industry’s growth is the increase in the appetite to take professional interior design services in smaller cities.

Alacritys: Inception And The Journey So Far
Running a business enhances one’s ability to think out of the box and create an impact on society and industry. It is also about inspiring others and giving them a chance to earn their livelihood through you. Belonging to a Marwadi family, earning through her own set-up instead of getting paid monthly was ingrained into Ms. Trupti’s mind since childhood. Her passion for creativity and owning a business turned out to be the setting stone in the foundation of Alacritys in 2009, post-completion of her studies.
With teamwork, fairness, commitment, persistence, innovation, empathy, and Self-belief as their core values, Alacritys have successfully delivered 500+ residential and commercial architecture and interior design projects in Pune, Bangalore, and a few other cities across India, since its inception. Few of their imminent clients are Kalyani Carpenters, Kalyani Studio from Kalyani group, JKL India Pvt. Ltd., a telecom infrastructure company, Parasmani Hospital Pune, Procient Pune – manufacture of distillery machine, and Zimbra, Pune – a software company.
Alacritys base their entire success on their customer satisfaction. Their biggest recognition is getting half of their projects with people referrals. Some of the major milestones for the company since its founding are:
2009: Alacritys founded in Pune with a focus on commercial and residential projects.

Current Trends In The Industry
The current trend in the industry is to use software to simulate or generate 3D prototypes of architecture and designs. It helps customers to visualize and make necessary changes on the go. With the help of software, one can play with colors, styles, space, etc. Another latest trend in India’s design industry is parametric design, where features are shaped according to algorithmic processes.
After establishing themselves in Pune, Alacritys is focusing on expansion. The first phase of expansion is Maharashtra and Karnataka, and the next is the rest of India. In the next two-three years, they have plans to establish themselves in Bangalore, Mumbai, and other cities of Maharashtra and Karnataka and then expand further to the rest of the country. They intend to operate across pan India and want to attain specialty in commercial, healthcare, and hospitality sectors. Alacritys are working to tie up with other like-minded corporates and firms to expedite its business expansion and reach. They have plans to become design partners with companies operating across pan India and offer them architecture and interior design services.
