Key Market Trends

France is One of The Prominent Markets for Floor Covering in the Region

France is witnessing increased sales of floor covering products. The country is experiencing rising demand, especially for resilient flooring products such as vinyl flooring. The sales of LVT vinyl floors are continuing to grow in France. This market segment now represents nearly 21% of the volume of resilient floors laid in the country.

The boom in LVT sales in the country can be attributed to rising demand for flooring products in the housing, shopping, and to a lesser extent, hotel sectors. The office sector is also witnessing an increasing penetration rate for LVTs.

In non-resilient flooring, France is also witnessing an increased demand for ceramic tiles. There is an increasing demand for designer ceramic bathroom, and home décor products from the residential sector of the country contributed by factors, such as high population growth, rising incomes, and a growing middle class.

Growth in Vinyl Flooring Segment in the Region

Resilient flooring is experiencing the highest growth in European countries. LVTs are one of the key drivers in this phenomenal growth. The growth in LVT flooring has come about because of the unique properties of this product, making it ideal for home and commercial applications. It meets the creative demands of designers, but it is also extremely durable and sustainable.

Vinyl is an excellent insulator. Homes with LVT flooring have a reduced heat transfer into the ground, therefore using less energy to heat in winter and cool in summer. Another sustainable benefit of vinyl flooring is its suitability for recycling. LVTs have safety and health benefits as well. Unlike carpets and wood, LVTs are not flammable. As a result, they do not contribute to the spread of fire through a building. These factors are increasing the demand for vinyl tiles and other vinyl flooring products in the region.

In Europe, the manufacturers are introducing LVT's with a wide choice of decors and formats, varied choice of implementation method, the possibility of non-glued installation, modularity, and renovation facilitated by the possibility of replacing each individually damaged plank/slab. As the LVT market becomes more established, manufacturers are differentiating their products through performance characteristics. Innovations in surface finishers are providing consumers with greater scratch and stain resistance.
