Non-resilient flooring, composed of rigid materials like ceramic tiles, engineered wood flooring, marble, terrazzo, and concrete, remains a solid choice, with ceramic tiles leading the market, accounting for over 50% of total flooring volume in 2019. Meanwhile, the carpets and rugs category gains popularity in spaces where comfort, noise reduction, and warmth are paramount.

Residential Reigns Supreme

In 2019, residential buildings dominated the global flooring market, contributing to more than 55% of the total market value.

Additionally, ongoing construction projects, both residential and commercial, along with urban development initiatives, are expected to fuel demand for various flooring materials, including vinyl, carpets, wood, and ceramic tiles, in the coming years.

Sustainability and Trends

Changing consumer preferences driven by urbanization and sustainability concerns have significantly impacted the flooring industry. Consumers seek low-maintenance options and flatter floors, while commercial and industrial spaces prioritize greener technologies to conserve energy. Flooring plays a substantial role in achieving sustainability goals, as it covers a large surface area and contributes to climate control within buildings.

Regional Leaders

Asia Pacific took the lead in the global flooring market in 2019, accounting for over 44% of the total market share, with China and India at the forefront. Rapid industrialization, urbanization, and housing development projects have propelled the regions flooring market. In the Middle East and Africa, urban development and construction projects have led to increased demand for materials such as ceramic tiles, vinyl, and concrete flooring.

North America, on the other hand, has seen a shift in preferences away from carpets and rugs towards other flooring materials due to increasing competition. High-end carpets and rugs, particularly those made from wool blends, continue to perform well in this market.

Competition and Innovation

The global flooring market is highly competitive, featuring a mix of global and regional players, including many small-sized enterprises and imports from cost-competitive emerging countries. Technological innovation is driving sustainable business practices, with companies developing innovative flooring materials, designs, and formats. Advances in technology have enabled manufacturers to create flooring with raised textures and intricate designs for enhanced aesthetic appeal.

In 2020, Welspun Flooring Limited, a subsidiary of the Welspun Group, launched a state-of-the-art US$145 million manufacturing facility in Telangana, India. This facility offers a wide range of innovative flooring materials, including carpet tiles, broadloom carpets, and greens.
