Floor Laying Services Procurement Category Market Research Report Now Available from IBISWorld

Share Article

Prices displayed moderate growth over the past three years due to a surge in demand for nonresidential construction services; because corporate profit margins grew strongly during the period, companies had access to larger expenditure budgets. For these reasons and to help procurement professionals make better buying decisions faster, business intelligence firm IBISWorld has added a report on the procurement of Floor Laying Services to its growing collection of procurement category market research reports.

Prices are forecast to grow strongly in the next three years due to continued recovery in the nonresidential construction market and corporate profit margin growth; businesses will be keen to expand and renovate during the period

Floor laying services have a buyer power score of 3.3 out of 5, which implies that buyers have some leverage during the negotiation process. The moderate degree of purchasing power is the result of the fragmentation of the market. Only 0.4% of suppliers, including Spectra Contract Flooring, employ more than 100 people. To this end, buyers can pit suppliers against one another during the selection process to get the best prices. However, as the economy emerged from the recession, businesses began expanding their operations and renovating their premises. “These changes led to a surge in demand for nonresidential construction services and, thus, a rise in flooring installation prices,” says IBISWorld procurement analyst Kiera Outlaw.

As of 2013, a large majority of floor laying services suppliers employ fewer than 10 people, indicating a low level of concentration in the market. The large pool of suppliers indicates that buyers have a plethora of options to choose from when it comes to flooring installation service providers. However, the market also displays a low level of profitability in 2013. These factors offset a buyer's degree of purchasing power. “The large pool of suppliers allows buyers to pit suppliers against one another,” adds Outlaw. “On the other hand, the low level of profitability suggests that price differences among suppliers are not significant.”

Further eroding buyer negotiation power is the steady, moderate growth in flooring installation prices. This growth is largely the result of a surge in nonresidential construction activity following the recession. Private nonresidential construction increased in the three years to 2013. During the period, businesses experienced a return to greater discretionary expenditure budgets, which spurred installation demand and price growth.
