Wood Flooring: A Global Strategic Business report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) March 29, 2010
Wood floors are considered as environment friendly, durable, and easy to clean. Wood floors are available in a wide range of wood materials with durable wear layers that withstand frequent maintenance and heavy stamping. Therefore, popularity of wood flooring is growing in both the commercial and residential markets. However, the wood flooring industry sales directly depends on the sales trends in the residential and commercial building industries.
Asia Pacific dominates the global wood flooring market as stated by the new market research report on wood flooring market. Although Europe and North America are the traditional markets for wood flooring, China has emerged as one of the major markets for wood flooring. This shift in market concentration resulted in the shift of manufacturing facilities from Western countries to China.
Owing to the global economic downturn, the timber supply took a plunge with insufficient wood stocks and not-so-large inventory volumes in 2008. Further, increase in the implementation costs of material grade, labor, manufacturing, logistics, and raw materials led to growth in the solid wood flooring's prices. The solid wood flooring' prices are expected to rise further in the next two years due to the rise in raw material costs.

Ltd., Anderson Hardwood Floors, Inc., BLC Hardwood Flooring, LLC, BOEN AS, Boral Limited, Chickasaw Brand Hardwood Flooring, F Junckers Industrier A/S, iLevel Company, Johnson Premium Hardwood Flooring, Koetter Woodworking, Inc., Shaw Industries, Inc., Tarkett AG, and Tembec Inc., among others.
