A major trend in laminate tiles is the automation of processes to enhance efficiency and improve safety. Although labor is used to craft (shape) the product, the cutting of wood is done automatically, which brings down the manufacturing cost. Laminate flooring is designed with natural wood and offers a high degree of versatility. They are stain resistant and need little routine maintenance. Laminate tiles can be easily installed with minimal skilled labor compared to other alternative flooring materials. These factors are expected to enhance the demand for laminate tiles during the forecast period. Development and advancement in the printing and designing industry have made laminated floors look more realistic which has fueled the growth of the laminate tile market across the globe.
