World market for Wood Flooring is projected to reach 16.2 billion square feet by 2024, driven by the steady global recovery in construction projects over the last couple of years in most countries worldwide; growing concerns over the environment and the ensuing preference for wood as a green building material given its lower carbon footprint and renewable characteristics when harvested through sustainable forest management practices. Benefits of wood flooring that makes it a special favorite among homeowners include easy maintenance and durability; enhances indoor air quality (IAQ) by repelling dust, animal dander, pollen, mould and mildew; flaunts a versatile classy elegance that complements almost any interior design theme; improves acoustics in a home by reducing hollow sounds and vibrations; comes available in a wide choice of wood species in myriad colors; as a poor conductor of heat it absorbs less heat and allows more circulation of heat resulting in reduced energy bills; and helps enhance the rental value and sale price of homes. Other major factors driving growth include stringent government regulations calling for mandatory renovation of aging buildings; growing demand for hard wearing and natural-looking floors; development of easy to install wood flooring designs such as standard angle locking technology, glueless-click lock installation, snap and lock installation; growing popularity of factory finished hardwood flooring for its lower risk of stains and discolorations associated with onsite finishing and longer durability; rising commercial value of solid wood parquet flooring for its anti-allergy flooring characteristics; and widening product choices in terms of colors, textures, patterns, strength, and wood floors manufactured from a variety of rare and exclusive wood species. Europe represents the largest market worldwide. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market with a projected CAGR of 5.9% over the analysis period, led by rapid urbanization and resulting housing and real estate development; preference for tropical wood flooring in rich, beautiful and luxurious designs; launch of affordable engineered wood flooring solutions; and expanding middle class and their changing attitude towards flooring decors. The region is famous for tropical wood growing in rainforests and moist broadleaf forests such as Mahogany, Teak, Ebony, Rosewood, Narra, and Chloroxylon also known as the East Indian Satinwood Lumber.
