Vinyl Growth Will Continue
VINYL flooring is primarily used in construction application of commercial and industrial locations. It is made from natural and synthetic polymer materials, including polyvinyl chloride and plasticizers. Vinyl flooring comes in the form of sheet, tile, and plank, specially tailored for residential and commercial use. The low costs, durability and ease of maintenance makes the flooring way more preferred option than other traditional modes, such as wood, concrete, ceramic, or marble. Other major advantages include scratch-free surface, resistance to withstand water and sunlight, availability in a huge range of colours, designs, and patterns.
Due to all those factors, vinyl flooring is preferred in non-residential constructions such as office spaces, shopping malls, resorts, and hotel accommodation. This contributes to the increase in demand for vinyl flooring in general. In addition, vinyl flooring has become the product of choice for flooring in many of modern healthcare and educational infrastructures.
In the past 10 years, manufacturers have released an impressive spread of new vinyl products, including vinyl sheet, luxury vinyl tiles (LVT), and vinyl composite tiles (VCT). These materials are utilized in making new and innovative decorative designs. The growth in consumer’s attention supports the growth of the vinyl flooring market.
On the other hand, vinyl is the most toxic chemical for both the human health and the environment, as it releases volatile chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects, respiratory problems, and many more serious chronic diseases.
Leading environmental justice and health-impacted organizations across the world have drafted stringent regulations restricting the market growth. The general growth in population, rise in investment in real estate, and high disposable income resulted in an increase in the demand for residential construction. Additionally, industrial development and urbanization with the constant expansion of new cities and towns have increased the demand for residential places. These factors are expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the vinyl flooring market in the coming years.
