Plush blankets are known for their soft, luxurious, and cozy feel. They are made from high-quality materials, typically synthetic fibers such as polyester, microfiber, or fleece, which are woven or knitted to create a plush, velvety texture. The fibers are designed to be exceptionally soft and fluffy, providing a warm and comforting experience. Plush blankets are often thicker and heavier than traditional blankets and are known for their ability to retain heat, making them popular choices for colder climates or during the winter season. Moreover, lightweight, and breathable variations of plush blankets are also available, suitable for use in milder temperatures.

The rising disposable incomes, especially in emerging economies, have led to an increase in consumer spending on home goods and luxury items which is primarily driving the market growth. In addition, the rising product demand in home décor applications, such as decorative pieces and furniture coverings due to their texture and visual appeal, represents another major growth-inducing factor. Plush blankets are available in a variety of colors, patterns, and textures, allowing consumers to choose blankets that complement their home decor and add an aesthetic appeal to their living spaces.
