LVT is cost-effective by almost thrice the price of hardwood flooring. One has to spend a significant amount in treating and refinishing the hardwood to maintain it properly.
LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Technavio’s global vinyl flooring market research report forecasts the market to grow at a CAGR of over 5% during the forecast period.
The implementation of augmented reality (AR) in the flooring industry will be one of the major trends in the global vinyl flooring market during 2018-2022. Previously, when a customer ordered a sample of flooring material online, the sample would be so small that it made it difficult for the customer to visualize how the floor would look after installation. But with the introduction of AR floor visualizer applications in the flooring industry, the consumers can modify the design of rooms or homes without the need to view samples physically. Some major flooring vendors have also been leveraging AR and VR technologies on their websites.
Global vinyl flooring market: Low cost and easy maintenance
LVT is cost-effective by almost thrice the price of hardwood flooring. One has to spend a significant amount in treating and refinishing the hardwood to maintain it properly. The cost of hardwood raw material is also high when compared with LVT, for which PVC and calcium carbonate are usually used. Commercial builders prefer LVT as LVT is durable and can withstand high-traffic areas.
According to a senior research analyst at Technavio, “The maintenance of LVT is easier than hardwood floors. Hardwood flooring requires regular maintenance checks, whereas LVT does not. Furthermore, LVT can be installed more quickly than hardwood flooring. Therefore, commercial and residential builders prefer LVT over other hardwood flooring. The low cost and easy maintenance of LVT will drive the growth of the global vinyl flooring market.”
