The number of infrastructure projects in developing economies have sky-rocketed in the last few years. This has boosted the demand for construction materials. The global vinyl flooring market is one of the benefiters of this. The market is growing rapidly, and the future promises higher growth rates with players expanding footprints in developing nations.
The new-age flooring material is a combination of natural and synthetic polymers along with limestone-based materials. It is manufactured in different forms like luxury vinyl tiles, composite floor tiles, and vinyl sheets.
Global Vinyl Flooring Market: Drivers and Restraints
The steep rise in the number of infrastructure projects across the globe is the biggest driver of the global vinyl flooring market. Developing nations are increasingly investing in industries, residential complexes, offices, hospitals, and educational institutions. Further, the growth in the volume of renovation projects in developed nations is also a massive booster for the global vinyl flooring market.
Vinyl flooring is considered a resilient material. Its durability, low maintenance, and reduced price has made it one of the most-preferred flooring option. Further it is water resistant and easy to clean. Its potential to improve air quality makes them ideal for healthcare and educational buildings.
