San Jose, California (PRWEB) March 31, 2015
Follow us on LinkedIn – The flooring industry is currently witnessing growth supported by the reviving construction activity in both developed and developing markets. Growing disposable income, urbanization, better credit availability, and recovery in home prices are fuelling residential construction projects, while increase in commercial, industrial and business activity is benefiting non-residential construction activity. Since its development, laminate flooring has attracted significant attention on par with wood flooring. The cost-advantage over other types of flooring products is encouraging homeowners, real estate agents, and remodeling contractors to replace hardwood, stone, wood, and ceramic flooring with laminate flooring. Low installation and maintenance costs of laminate flooring when compared to alternative wood floors, is expected to emerge as the single most important factor driving sales of laminate flooring as an affordable luxury. Apart from their durability and aesthetic appeal, innovation and advancements in production and designing methods bode well for the market. Some of the advancements that have occurred over the past few years include mechanical locking systems, high definition printing for creating realistic visuals, and wear layer protection to ensure longer life of floor covering. Innovations such as specialty laminates including chemical resistant laminates, and custom-made colors and patterns are expected to boost demand patterns.
Rising environmental awareness and increasing demand for eco-friendly flooring are expected to benefit sales of laminate flooring.
