Further, the growing penetration of prefabricated building manufacturers and the rising disposable income to invest in decorative buildings expect to fuel flooring sales. Moreover, increasing demand for LVT due to the ease of its availability, installation, and durability in a cost-effective manner, especially in the residential sector, is expected to drive the LVT market growth. Thus, during the forecast period, LVT flooring is expected to be a vital part of the flooring in the market.


High Demand for Luxury Vinyl Tiles

Luxury vinyl tiles are one of the most preferred flooring materials as they are the most durable and high-quality, with low maintenance at affordable prices. With factors such as stains, scratches, mildew, or mold, LVT is highly preferred in entry zones and heavy traffic areas. Luxury vinyl is available in a wooden look form with a soft underfoot feeling, available in a tile and plank form. LVT is mainly preferred for bedrooms, fancy areas, and living rooms of residence for a perfect finishing and classy look. Hence, the residential sector is expected to create considerable demand for the LVT flooring industry during the forecast period. Moreover, the cost of LVT is low compared to carpet and hardwood floors in the market.

Emerging New Technologies In Flooring Market

With the advent of modernization, the flooring industry is adapting emerging technologies in the market. Many companies are focusing on manufacturing engineered wood flooring products in the industry. Engineered wood flooring is one of the classic, timeless, modern floor coverings with improved material quality. Technology and manufacturing advancements have helped manufacturers create technologically superior and modified versions of hardwood flooring or engineered wood floors. With dimensional stability and superior moisture resistance features, engineered wood flooring is highly preferred for residential and commercial flooring. Some benefits of engineered wood flooring include a wide range of design and color options, easy to install and durable, and budget-friendly.


Lack of Skilled Labor

Most global building constructors, associations, and construction firms estimate that the lack of skilled labor will significantly impact construction activities’ productivity during the forecast period. Construction firms are looking for ways to cope with the skilled labor shortage. Such factors challenge the global construction industry, restraining the flooring market growth. Various laborers being deployed in flooring work at construction sites lack skills for carrying out their job. However, in most growing economies, flooring contractors provide dedicated training for employers in handling chemicals used for flooring and equipment used for flooring tiles applications.



The global non-resilient flooring market dominated the market and was valued at USD 243.22 billion in 2022. Growing urbanization and improving ruralization have increased the demand for carpet and ceramic flooring or non-resilient flooring in the market. This type of flooring is highly preferred for residential construction or remodeling houses. Apart from residential, many commercial spaces prefer non-resilient flooring, mainly carpet, which is highly observed in the hotel industry where flooring appearance mainly attracts customers with a soft- appearance.

Apart from non-resilient flooring, the demand for resilient flooring is also anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period. Increasing infrastructural activities such as growing demand for single housing or residents, increasing construction of commercial buildings in developing nations, and rising shift towards urban areas fuel the resilient flooring market.
