Hard Surface Flooring

Hard Surface Flooring

US demand for hard surface flooring is expected to see annual growth of 6.1 percent through 2019. Gains will be spurred by increasing consumer preference for hard surface flooring, which is seen as being more attractive and having a longer product lifespan than wall-to-wall carpeting.

LVT Will Continue to See Above-Average Growth
Hard Surface Flooring products covered by the study include:
Vinyl (luxury vinyl tile, or LVT; vinyl sheet goods, and vinyl composition tile, or VCT)
Other Resilient Flooring (rubber, linoleum, and cork)
Decorative Tile (ceramic and porcelain tile)
Wood Flooring (engineered wood and solid wood)
Laminate
Other Non-Resilient Products

Vinyl flooring was the leading hard surface flooring material installed in the US in 2014 and will remain so through 2019. Continuing demand for LVT will drive advances. In addition to its low cost and ease of installation, consumers select this material because of its favorable appearance, such as a high-gloss surface. Moreover, manufacturer efforts to offer a broad range of products -- such as planks and tiles that closely resemble natural wood and stone -- have spurred homeowners to use LVT during remodeling projects.

Replacement and Remodeling Activities Spur Demand
Markets (New and Replacement and Remodeling) analyzed in this study include:
Residential (single-family, multifamily, and manufactured housing)
Nonresidential (office & commercial, institutional, industrial, and transportation & other)
Transportation Equipment (motor vehicles, aircraft, & other craft)

Hard surface flooring sees extensive use in both residential and nonresidential structures because of its durability -- most products have longer lifespans than carpet and are easier to clean. Going forward, home and business owners will increasingly replace older or worn carpeting with hard surface flooring -- such as LVT or decorative tile -- to reduce maintenance costs and impart a more attractive interior appearance.

Market Leaders Benefit from Offering Multiple Product Categories
Hard surface flooring suppliers to the US include Armstrong, Congoleum, Crossville, Florida Tile, Interceramic, Kronotex, Mannington Mills, Mohawk, Mullican Flooring, RPM International, and Tarkett.
