Automotive flooring are floor mats that are designed to safeguard the vehicle's original floor from wear, dirt, and corrosion. Automotive flooring keeps the vehicle interior clean and adds esthetic appeal to the vehicle interior. Automotive flooring is available in a wide variety of materials including nylon, polypropylene, rubber, and polyurethane. It is also available in various shapes, sizes, designs, and colors.
Rise in production of vehicles is a major factor that is projected to augment the automotive flooring market during the forecast period. Surging trend of utilizing vehicle floor carpets, owing to the enhancement in appearance of vehicle interior and protection of vehicle floor, is another key factor that is expected to boost the automotive flooring market. Stringent regulations by governing bodies of the automotive industry due to account of safety hazards have prompted OEMs and vehicle manufacturers to offer economical and safe automotive flooring. Automotive flooring offers numerous benefits such as durability, keeps the vehicle interior clean, easy maintenance, customized offerings, and ease of availability. These key advantages are expected to provide lucrative opportunities to the market. Increasing pressure from automakers to manufacture lightweight floorings is expected to lead to the development of new fabric material, which is likely to be expensive. This, in turn, is expected to hamper the automotive flooring market during the forecast period.
