The smart flooring market size was valued at USD 151.7 million in 2022 and is projected to grow from USD 230.1 million in 2023 to USD 5,873.3 million by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 58.9% during the forecast period. North America dominated the global market with a share of 37.64% in 2022.

Smart (intelligent) flooring is an integrated sensor & microelectronics underlay that can be deployed under any kind of flooring such as carpet, PVC, and laminate. It enables users to track people's speed, falls, spills, and gait without any need for pressure-based sensors. In addition to monitoring movements, some advancements also enable electricity generation. With such innovative features, the technology is being implemented in various areas by key players in the market. For instance,

  • In November 2021, the Pavegen pathway was installed at COP26 UNFCCC Pavillion. COP26 was a platform where Mark Carney and Mike Bloomberg discussed the U.K.'s approach toward sustainability. Every footstep across the array produced 2-5 joules of kinetic energy, turning into cash donations to help ocean clean-up charities.

With high-tech enhancements in the market, the growth of the global smart flooring market share can be attributed to several sectors, such as gaming, sports, healthcare, malls, and musical events.


The COVID-19 pandemic surged the demand for smart home products, and awareness regarding these products increased during this period. According to a survey, around 80% of consumers were unaware of smart home technology before the pandemic. Social distancing became the norm during the outbreak and products, such as smart cameras and smart security systems, gained traction across residential and commercial spaces.

The adoption of smart building technologies and connected equipment increased with the enforcement of new policies during the pandemic. The ability of smart building technologies helps to monitor and implement these policies, thus improving building efficiency.

Smart floors - one of the elements of smart buildings - also gained popularity during the pandemic as they ensured the safety of customers while lining up for coffee and food. For instance, the Australian Graphene Industry Association introduced On-Q-Mat, which used state-of-the-art technology to ensure social distancing.

Hence, smart flooring ensured social distancing during the pandemic. However, post-pandemic, the technology solutions will gain traction in residential and commercial spaces for various applications.

Smart Floors across Retail Sector and Kinetic Dance Floors to Augment Market Growth

Smart floors capture kinetic energy from human movement and transform it into electrical energy. This technology is being used on dance floors to generate electricity. As more companies are leaning toward sustainability, intelligent flooring solutions have gained immense popularity in recent years. According to the United Nations, heat and electricity generation is the most significant source of global greenhouse gas emissions, accounting for about 35%.

Along with key players, governments across the world have also recognized the importance of kinetic dance floors, which can harness power and generate electricity. Governments in several countries have started different initiatives to regulate the power of kinetic dance floors. For instance,

  • In December 2022 – A one-day event was organized by the Petroleum and Natural Gas Ministry of India, where renewable energy was generated through dance. The power generated through these floors was used to charge electric automobiles.

These initiatives are steadily impacting the market growth.


Rising Awareness of Benefits of Smart Flooring Solutions is Driving Market Growth

On the component level, floor sensors are mounted on devices to generate data. This data is used for several purposes, from people management to energy conservation.

IoT sensors have been popular in smart homes and buildings, typically installed in equipment or ceilings. However, with the recent advancements in IoT technology, users are becoming aware of the benefits of smart floors.

Furthermore, key vendors in the market are constantly partnering and merging with leading smart flooring companies to enhance their solution capabilities. This strategy combines the best of their expertise with the acquired firm's capabilities. As the market is still emerging, the vendors aim to develop their solutions according to their customers’ changing requirements.

Smart flooring technology also has potential applications in hospitals and other related medical facilities including retirement homes. This technology helps medical staff monitor a patient's condition in real-time, allowing them to follow their rehabilitation progress or know when a patient falls on the ground.


High Cost of Installing Relevant Software Likely to Curb Market Growth

Smart flooring is a sensitive floor system comprising sensors, walkable solar panels, interactivity, and big data. It uses lots of smaller circuits to integrate the larger ones. This dramatically increases the cost of integration and installation.

As the technology is still new and in its nascent stage, the installation cost of smart flooring is much higher than that of the traditional flooring system. This factor limits the implementation of this technology within small- and medium-sized enterprises and personalized home care systems.


By Component Analysis

Surge in Use of Smart Fabrics and Smart Carpets to Enhance Adoption of Hardware

There are two components in the smart flooring market - hardware and software. Hardware segment is expected to hold the maximum share during the forecast period.

Numerous applications of hardware solutions, such as sensors, smart fabrics, smart mats, and smart carpets, are driving their adoption. Various players and institutes in the industry are innovating their products by using smart technology. For instance,

  • In June 2021, MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) introduced an intelligent carpet that gives insights into human behavior. The carpet’s sensors transform kinetic energy produced by human movements into an electrical signal that helps in power generation. The smart carpet can be used in smart homes, healthcare centers, and gaming for self-powered personalized use.

These innovations will fuel the smart flooring market growth.

By End-user Analysis

Rising Usage of Smart Floors in Commercial Sector Will Drive Market Expansion

Smart flooring solutions are being used in commercial as well as residential. The commercial segment generated the highest revenue for the market in 2022, and might record the highest CAGR during the analysis period.

Corporate offices and plazas are more inclined toward adopting smart technologies as they provide an effective way for office staff to manage the functional space of these establishments. As the data can be directly sent to the control center or a mobile dashboard, it enables managers to monitor the building from any location.

The residential segment is also considerably growing due to rising requirements for personalized smart technologies for senior living and smart homes. Various key players in the market are forming alliances to deliver enhanced solutions. For instance,

  • In November 2021, Scanalytics announced its partnership with Ardex, one of the leading developers of high-performance building materials, to provide residential and commercial applications in intelligent flooring. The partnership leverages the existing data, software, and floor-sensing solutions along with Ardex’s intelligent floor systems.

  • In October 2022, Cini, Mosaic Design Studio's CEO, renovated an Opera-style mansion in Columbus for senior living. The renovation comprised high-tech technologies specially designed for senior living including smart flooring, lighting design, and many other facilities.
