The global flooring market size was USD 342.88 billion in 2020 and is projected to grow from USD 359.20 billion in 2021 to USD 517.74 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 5.4% during the 2021-2028 period. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with the product witnessing a negative demand shock across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a decline of 1.4% in 2020. The sudden rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

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 will provide growth opportunities for the market. Surging demand for residential buildings, commercial amenities, and healthcare facilities will drive market growth. 

Delayed Construction Projects during Pandemic to Restrict Market

The pandemic has severely impacted the construction industry globally. The restrictions in the movement of materials resulted in a shortage of raw materials. Further, 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 projects 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 will serve as the key trend for market recovery after the COVID-19 impact.

Increasing Remodeling and Renovations in Residential and Commercial Buildings to drive Market Growth

The increasing demand for remodeling and renovation in residential and commercial buildings is expected to spike the product demand. Nowadays, many people use renovation and remodeling methods as ideal choices for interior designing and to change the appearance and structure of buildings. Rising consumer expenditure for interior designing will surge the demand for remodeling and renovation. The use of these products for remodeling and renovation is increasing owing to their long-lasting and cost-effective properties that keep buildings up-to-date. Additionally, rising government investments to improve public recreational spaces, hospitals, schools, and transport facilities will lead to the consumption of these products. Hence, these factors will help to fuel the market growth during the forecast period.


Increasing Demand for Vinyl Flooring in Residential and Non-residential Buildings to Drive Market

Vinyl is utilized as a multipurpose material in tiling applications, wherein luxury vinyl tile is majorly used. It is preferred in applications where accidental spills are the main issues, as it offers moisture and mold resistance. In addition, this finishing material is increasingly gaining popularity in both residential and non-residential buildings owing to its lower cost, easy installation, and durability. Hence, the rising use of vinyl in residential and non-residential buildings will surge this market.

Rising Need for Multistory Buildings to Drive the Demand for Flooring Products

Multistory buildings are preferred over private houses in both residential and commercial sectors. Increasing population and consumer expenditure have led to demand for multistory residential buildings. Whereas, the growth in commercial multistory buildings is attributed to the rising industrialization and urbanization in developing economies. Government initiatives to develop smart cities are expected to increase the market demand. Additionally, the rapidly growing real-estate sector has further contributed to the growth of multistory buildings. Hence, these positive factors propel the demand for tiling during the forecast period.


Environmental Concerns Surrounding the Product’s Waste Management to Restrict Market Growth

The improper management of disposing and recycling of waste generated during the production or after-use of finishing materials is anticipated to hinder the market growth. Improper waste management can cause serious negative environmental impacts such as harmful infectious diseases, obstruction of drains, land and water pollution, and loss of biodiversity. The aforementioned factors could hamper the market development to some extent.


By Type Analysis

Non-Resilient Segment to Remain as the Dominant Type of Flooring during Forecast Period

By type, the market is segregated into non-resilient, resilient, and carpets & rugs.  

Non-resilient segments are further classified into ceramic, wood, laminate, and others. Similarly, the resilient flooring segment is bifurcated into vinyl and others. Also, the carpets & rugs segment is further divided into tufted, woven, and others.

The non-resilient segment accounted for the highest revenue share in which ceramic sub-segment is 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 mainly on residential floors. Laminate flooring 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 disrupt the market due to its durability and moisture-resistant properties. The increasing use of luxury vinyl tiles in residential and commercial buildings will significantly drive the market. Tufted sub-segment is the largest type in carpets & rugs segment. The tufted carpet is used for wall-to-wall carpeting. It is ideal for those rooms where heavy furniture is placed.
