Flooring is an integral part of any interior design and it directly affects user experience with that design. It serves as the foundation of any design and a good quality flooring enhances the look and appeal of the basic structure. It is the last material applied over a subfloor or floor structure to arrange for a walking structure. Carpets, ceramic tiles, laminates, and vinyl tiles are majorly utilized products as they offer an attractive, hard, clean, and smooth finish to floors. The increasing global population and the need for housing surge the product demand. Further, the rising industrialization and urbanization escalates the product demand in commercial applications.
The coronavirus pandemic gravely affected the operations in the construction industry. Supply chain disruptions, raw material, and labor shortages experienced amid the pandemic affected construction activities. Government’s orders to temporarily dismiss construction activities led to delayed construction and renovation projects. However, government and private investments to enhance and upgrade the healthcare sector invigorated flooring demand and are likely to be a key trend prevailing in the coming years. As per Fortune Business InsightsTM, the global flooring market size is projected to hit USD 517.74 billion by 2028. The mushrooming demand for healthcare facilities, commercial amenities, and residential buildings is estimated to uptick demand.
