Manufacturer Owned Stores are the Most Preferred Distribution Channel

In China, flooring can be purchased from retail stores and even the internet, but there are no buying groups or home centers promoting flooring. The majority of retail stores are owned by flooring manufacturers who also install and service the floor. The retail channel in China is very fragmented, with the 50 largest retailers accounting for less than 5% of the total market.

When it comes to purchasing flooring, there are a number of retail options available in the country. A major factor affecting where flooring is purchased is that flooring is considered a building material, not a home decoration, and is often grouped with plumbing fixtures and lighting. Flooring manufacturer-owned stores and home products/design malls are the largest retail outlets for flooring in China. Manufacturer stores (Nature, Elegant Living, Power Dekor, for example) can be stand-alone units or showrooms located within large, multi-story structures where other home products, such as plumbing and lighting fixtures, are sold. These are the most preferred channels for the purchase of flooring products in the country.
