Additional InformationSCOPE AND METHODOLOGY
The Catalina Report on Resilient Flooring is a guide to the growth and profit opportunities in the manufacturing, importing, and distribution of vinyl, linoleum, cork, rubber, and other resilient flooring. This comprehensive database covers U.S. shipments, imports and exports, residential and nonresidential markets, retail sales, factors affecting domestic demand and distribution, the cost structure of resilient flooring plants, the competitive environment, and the world market situation. In addition, global U.S. manufacturers and marketers are profiled in order to uncover competitor strategies.
U.S. resilient flooring sales are calculated from U.S. Department of Commerce statistics by collecting data on domestic plant shipments, subtracting exports, and adding imports (Section 1). Sales are calculated on a dollar and square foot basis and calculated as a share of total U.S. floor coverings sales (shipments minus exports plus imports) and hard surface flooring sales. Catalina does a similar calculation for vinyl sheet and floor tile, linoleum, rubber flooring, cork, and other resilient flooring products. Catalina also estimates sales of fiberglass-backed vinyl sheet products and luxury vinyl floor tiles (LVT). Section and report findings are summarized in our Executive Summary in order for readers to quickly review the present and future health of this industry and assess whether their company’s performance is in line with industry trends.
Section 2 analyzes U.S. shipments and imports. Shipments are for all domestic manufacturers, whether plants are owned by U.S.- or foreign-based companies, and whether or not plants specialize (50% or more of total facility revenues) in resilient flooring. Import data is derived from U.S. Customs records and analyzed by product and by major country of origin. Average value per square foot of flooring supplied by U.S.- and foreign-based manufacturers is also evaluated.
End-use markets and distribution channels are analyzed in Section 3. Resilient flooring purchases are provided for new residential construction and residential remodeling markets, new nonresidential construction and commercial contract markets, as well as transportation equipment markets. This data is based on U.S. Department of Commerce surveys. Section 3 also analyzes resilient flooring retail sales. In addition, U.S. export trends are included in order to determine foreign sales opportunities.
Catalina investigated the factors driving domestic demand and distribution by analyzing U.S. construction activity (Section 4). Residential housing statistics include data on new housing completions, existing home resales, and mobile home placements. Housing starts and residential building permits track current trends in new residential construction markets. The characteristics of newly constructed U.S. housing units are also provided. Total homeowner remodeling and repair spending is analyzed as well. Trends are also tracked on a region and state basis. In addition, data is provided on household demographics and economic trends. Nonresidential construction trends are tracked by type of building.
Catalina supplies data on the cost structure and profitability of U.S. plants specializing (50% or more of total plant revenues) in the manufacture and sale of resilient flooring (Section 5). U.S. Department of Commerce survey data covering these plants are supplemented with individual company profiles and sales data in order to provide growth- and profit-oriented strategies and company market shares. Annual reports, trade journals, and databases were searched (Section 8). A similar effort was made for global manufacturers to determine world market trends and worldwide market shares for ten leading manufacturers (Section 6). The Canadian market situation was evaluated as well. Catalina analyzed Statistics Canada shipments, imports, and exports.
Section 7 is an analysis of the U.S. and Canadian markets for rubber mats, stair treads, and cove base. Shipments, imports, exports, and price trends were analyzed. U.S. rubber mat, stair tread, and cove base plant operating ratios and profit margins were also investigated.
Action-oriented executives are urged to use this comprehensive statistical database and the competitor information to develop new products, penetrate end-use markets, target key demographic markets, expand global market sales, and initiate profitable operating strategies. Executives are urged to compute their own company’s market share and compare their company’s operating ratios to the industry’s averages as part of this process.
