Terrazzo Flooring Market: Overview
Terrazzo is a kind of hard surface flooring that is fabricated with the help of cement matrix or epoxy matrix composites. It is used to bind aggregates such as marble pieces, glass pieces, or other suitable aesthetic material. Terrazzo flooring falls in the category of green building materials, which are significantly used in the non-residential sector in educational institutes, universities, office lobbies etc. Terrazzo floors are preferred for their aesthetic appearance.
Factors such as rise in investment in retrofitting activities and increase in the importance of interior designing in the construction industry are driving the terrazzo flooring market. Terrazzo floors are not very common, as they add value to the room. Overall, terrazzo flooring is inexpensive in nature. However, the initial installation cost is higher compared to that of other traditional alternatives such as ceramic tiles, polished concrete surfaces, coatings, etc. The presence of these alternatives may hamper the overall growth of the terrazzo flooring market during the forecast period.

Increase in the use of eco-friendly structures and rise in custom-made designs in the commercial sector drive the market. In addition, a rise in the number of educational institutes and universities and increase in refurbishment activities are anticipated to fuel the terrazzo flooring market in the coming years. The educational institutes segment of the non-residential segment is expected to expand at a significant growth rate during the forecast period.
