"Innovative Market Solutions to Help Businesses Make Informed Decisions"
The global flooring market size was valued at USD 376.44 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow from USD 395.19 billion in 2023 to USD 579.40 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period.
Flooring is a finishing material applied over a floor or subfloor structure to arrange for a walking surface. These products offer properties, such as resistance to scratches, dents, and moisture, and are very easy to clean. Majorly used products include ceramic tiles, vinyl tiles, carpets, and laminates, as they provide a smooth, clean, hard, and attractive surface to the floors. These benefits lead consumers to use these products during the development and renovation of residential and non-residential buildings. Increasing new construction facilities and the surging demand for residential buildings, commercial amenities, and healthcare facilities will drive market growth.
Delayed Construction Projects during Pandemic Restricted Market Growth
The pandemic severely impacted the construction industry globally. The restrictions in the movement of materials resulted in a shortage of raw materials. Furthermore, the lockdown rules and regulations constrained the contractors and builders to conduct their construction activities. This factor led to delays in new and current construction projects. In the first quarter of 2020, the architects and contractors canceled or postponed their construction plans in China, Japan, the U.S., and India. As per the 2020 U.S. Chamber Study, in July, more than 85% of contractors experienced construction project delays in the U.S. owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. This factor decreased the consumption of finishing materials in the same time span. However, government investment policies for building and enhancing healthcare facilities served as the key trend for market recovery after the COVID-19 impact.
Manufacturing of Sustainable Products to Present Lucrative Opportunities
Sustainable products manufactured from recycled material are emerging in this market. For instance, the demand for natural and recycled carpets has increased over time owing to the cost-effectiveness and support of the green manufacturing initiative adopted by the different governments of the U.S. and the U.K.
On the other side, manufacturers of products, such as Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT), Vinyl Composite Tiles (VCT), vinyl sheet covering for the floors, and rubber focus on reducing the product's Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) content. The VOCs pollute the indoor environment, affecting human health. Hence, reducing VOC content would increase the product’s sustainability. For instance, in November 2022, Tarkett S.A. launched its renowned Johnsonite brand of products. The brand's adherence to stringent material health, renewable energy, product circularity, climate requirements, water stewardship, and social fairness criteria provides a competitive edge to the company.
Moreover, leveraging the latest technology, companies may create new processes and systems to recycle product waste. Manufacturing products from waste will enhance the profitability of the companies while also benefiting the environment. Further, consumer preference for sustainable products will boost the product demand from the end-users.

Rapid Increase in Building & Construction Industry Globally is anticipated to Drive Market Growth
The rising population across the globe is surging the demand for residential and non-residential construction. During the initial stages of 2023, the global population crossed eight billion, expected to double by the end of 2050. Such rising population and urbanization have created massive space for the construction industry. This has increased demand for products, such as tiles, carpets & rugs, and hardwood floors owing to their wide utilization in construction structures. These products are utilized based on their requirements. For instance, hardwood floors are utilized in residential buildings as they deliver the utmost strength, a long life span, and a decorative touch.
People in emerging economies, such as China, India, and other ASEAN countries, have witnessed substantial improvement in their living standards and house purchasing power. Over the past few decades these aspects have played a key role in driving the demand for modern surface coverings, including carpets & rugs. Improved spending and the untapped regional construction industry will likely prompt new infrastructure and construction project initiation during the forecast period.
Additionally, developing countries in the Asia Pacific region are home to around 60% of the world population, and governments in these countries are taking initiatives to provide affordable housing. For instance, the Government of India runs Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Urban) and Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Rural) to provide affordable housing to the poor in urban areas & rural areas, respectively.
Growing Requirement for Aesthetics in Buildings Presenting Significant Demand for Flooring
The global population is increasing quickly and has created substantial demand for housing facilities for the people. The consumer keeps a keen eye on the aesthetic design and interior of the building while constructing or selecting a prebuilt home. As a result, several manufacturers focus on providing suitable aesthetic surface solutions and maintaining the house's interior, which meets specifications regarding impact resistance, strength, and durability. Moreover, several consumers also seek visual and touch aesthetics while selecting their products. Hence, such factors are expected to increase consumer investment in aesthetically superior products and drive the market's growth.
Volatility in Raw Material Prices to Limit Market Growth
Fluctuations in the prices of raw materials may limit the market's growth by affecting the manufacturer's profitability. Raw materials, such as vinyl, fibers, fiber composites, and resins, are primarily utilized in surface-covering products. Thus, increasing prices of these raw materials result in rising production costs and increase the price of the finished products. Hence, higher prices of the raw materials & finished products ultimately affect the demand for the flooring.
Moreover, the volatility in the prices and decreasing availability of the petroleum-based raw materials used in manufacturing certain products, such as vinyl surfaces for the floors, is anticipated to impact market growth. For instance, carpets and rugs are manufactured using crude oil-based raw materials, including polyester, nylon, latex and synthetic backing materials, various dyes, and chemicals. Hence, the volatility in crude oil prices is anticipated to limit market growth.
Non-Resilient Segment Dominated the Market due to Increasing Need for Easy-to-install Floor Coverings
By type, the market is segregated into non-resilient, resilient, and carpets & rugs. The non-resilient segment is further classified into ceramic, wood, laminate, and others. Similarly, the resilient flooring segment is sub-segmented into vinyl, rubber, linoleum, and cork. Also, the carpets & rugs segment is further divided into tufted, woven, and others.
The non-resilient segment accounted for the largest flooring market share in 2022, with the ceramic sub-segment being the most significant type. Ceramic tiles have a distant protecting layer on their surface, making them impervious to spreading pigment and water damage. They also provide a harder surface, easy maintenance, no allergy concerns, and durability. These properties increase their use primarily on residential floors. Laminate is a low-investment floor alternative, and it replicates stone, and wood floors. The growth of this segment is attributed to the increasing need for easy-to-install floor coverings.
In the resilient segment, vinyl is anticipated to boost the market owing to its moisture-resistant qualities and durability. Luxury vinyl tiles are highly preferred in residential and commercial buildings. In the carpets & rugs segment, the tufted sub-segment is the major type. The tufted carpet is widely adopted for wall-to-wall carpeting and is suitable for rooms with heavy furniture.
