Environmental Hazards Associated with Different Floorings to Hinder Market Growth

Flooring is one of the most essential components in any kind of building, both from aesthetic and durability points of view. To meet the escalating demand from households and commercial spaces for attractive, low-cost, and reliable solutions, manufacturers are increasingly developing innovative products to cater to these requirements. While this factor augurs well for the market growth, there are certain environmental disadvantages that these products carry.

Thus, flooring solutions carry a hefty environmental costs and rising awareness of these shortcomings is prompting many companies to develop eco-friendly products.
