Wood Flooring: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) March 20, 2015
Follow us on LinkedIn – Wood flooring remains a popular flooring option worldwide. Wood represents a conventional building material that still continues to find favor among consumers, despite the availability of a wide range of flooring options. The trend is driven by the rising focus on eco-friendly homes. With homeowners focused on balancing the green and stylish quotient of homes, manufacturers of wood flooring have introduced a wide range of products inspired by the world of fashion. The ‘green’ image associated with wood provides the necessary impetus for demand growth. Unlike other flooring options, production of wood flooring consumes relatively less energy. Wood flooring production results in lower green-house gas emissions and thus a smaller carbon footprint. With growing concerns over pollution and its impact on the environment, consumers are increasingly seeking building materials that are renewable and environmentally safe. As a result, homeowners, builders, designers, and architects prefer wood flooring. Stringent government regulations calling for mandatory renovation of aging buildings, both residential and commercial, will help drive demand for building materials including wood flooring.
Manufactured floors/engineered flooring is growing in popularity in comparison to solid wood floors. Major factors driving growth in demand for engineered flooring include rising demand for flooring options that can be used in a wider range of applications. Environmentalists are encouraging a reduction in consumption of forest and plantation resources, which is possible with the use of engineered floors. Demand is also increasing for pre-finished wood flooring products that eliminate the need for scrapping and rubbing at the installation site. Most of these products are designed with a self-lock capability to avoid messy glues that take time to cure. Wood flooring is witnessing significant competition from laminate flooring. However, much of the impact of growth in popularity of laminate has been on mosaic wood flooring.
