The underlayment is a layer between the subfloor and the floor. The materials such as recycled plastic, foam, sponge rubber, crumb rubber, and felt are used to form underlayment. It is used to provide comfort underfoot and reduces the wear on the carpet. Furthermore, on the new floor, the underlayment adds warmth & softness and increases longevity by protecting from friction. It offers vapor barrier functionality, thermal insulation, crush-resistant, and highly indentation resistance. These benefits of underlayment surge its demand in various application such as tіlе flооrіng, lаmіnаtе flооrіng, hаrdwооd flооrіng, саrреt flооrіng, and vinyl flооrіng.

Rising demand for cork underlayment in the construction industry will fuel the underlayment market expansion.  The cork underlayment material is light weighted and extremely durable. It provides a cushioning effect, which makes the floor much more comfortable walking and standing on. Furthermore, the natural resistance of cork aids to eliminate the permanent dents or deformities, which is mainly caused by falling objects or heavy objects resting on the floor. It provides better sound insulation and resistance to moisture and heat. These factors increase the demand for cork underlayment in the construction industry, which further fuel underlayment market growth.

However, many consumers are unaware of the underlayment and its benefits, which act as a restrain in the adoption of the product. Hence, this is anticipated to hamper the market growth.
