As, Industrial Flooring are extensively used in oil & gas industry, the growth in this industry will drive Industrial Flooring market growth.
However, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, globally functioning of various manufacturing end-use industries are hindered, owing to which the demand for industrial flooring product has substantially decreased, which is limiting the Industrial Flooring market growth during the outbreak.
Concrete flooring held the largest share in the Industrial Flooring market in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.0% through the forecast period. Factors such as lower concrete costs, superior performance and tensile strength make it the most commonly used material for industrial floor construction. It provides improved wear & tear protection from heavy machinery and ground equipment. In Resin Flooring type, the epoxy resin is the widely used resin, owning to its extensive properties such as low porosity, strong adhesion, excellent chemical resistance, durability, anti-sagging, and bond strength.
Heavy Duty (>4mm) held the largest share in the Industrial Flooring market in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.9% through the forecast period, owning to long life span as compared to other types when used in constant fork lift truck traffic, hard plastic wheeled trolleys with some impact. In developing countries, stringent worker safety and product hygiene regulations are also in place. As a result, advanced flooring systems must be implemented by companies to avoid floor deterioration and damage and to ensure hygiene as well. Various government bodies such as the USDA, the FDA and the EU have set laws and regulations, and standards in the workplace. As a result, it is steadily becoming necessary to install advanced flooring system. Which is further influencing industrial flooring market growth.
Healthcare held the largest share in the Industrial Flooring market in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 8.0% through the forecast period. Withstanding traffic from persons, gurneys, and heavy machinery, hygienic problems are critical to the construction and maintenance of floors for health care facilities. Industrial flooring combines strength and durability with excellent sanitation and minimal maintenance. Therefore, it is widely used in healthcare facilities. In addition, its demand is also increases from automotive and transportation industry. According to International Trade Administration (ITA), the Chinese government is expecting automobile output to reach 35 million by 2025. In addition, according to International Energy Agency, in 2018, 3.29 million electric vehicles deployed globally and the number will increase up to 125 million by 2030. Therefore, these growths are indicating the need for more automotive manufacturing plants, which is expected to influence industrial flooring market growth.
APAC dominated the Industrial Flooring market with a share of approximately 48% in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 7.1% through the forecast period. For many sectors, from automotive, aerospace to building and construction, countries such as China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and India are manufacturing hubs. Due to the availability of cheap raw materials and labor, global players are shifting their production base to the Asia-Pacific region. According to Boeing, between 2012 and 2018, the world added a net 176 airports. Most of these (165) were in the Asia-Pacific region. In addition, the construction of 17 new airports are planned by 2030 in the Asia-Pacific region that will further influence industrial flooring market growth.
Currently, most of the companies related to automotive, aerospace, electronics, healthcare, chemicals, and so on, are expanding their production facilities in order to fulfill the demand and cement their position on the market. Owning to this, the manufacturers are establishing warehouses to store their products, vehicles, machineries, in a high manner. The industrial flooring is majorly driven by the transportation logistics, and warehousing, where the products, and other stuffs are being packed and kept. In general, the growth rate of the warehousing segment is higher, and one of the major segments contributing to a rapidly growing logistics industry is the warehousing business. So being the major segment of logistics and the major part for manufacturers in terms of storage, the warehouses need a proper facility to keep the product safe. If the heavy machineries are kept, the impact on the floors, majorly, are very high, due to which, the floor needs long life performance materials to keep their floor safe. Also, the new storage facilities are now integrated with automation machines and logistic robots to keep the products in a categorize manner, and also saves time for storing. But this automation machines and logistic robots are heavier in weight, which majorly increases the loads on the floor, and as a result, the floor of the warehouse cannot withstand for longer duration. Due to this reason, the warehouse owners are now using industrial flooring products to increase the durability of warehouse floors, and to increase the strength of the floors.
The cost of industrial flooring varies and depends on the thickness of the material used and the service supplier used. In most cases, the average cost of industrial flooring typically turns out to be greater than the cost of conventional flooring for end-use industries. In addition, the application and expense of industrial flooring mainly depends on the operating sector of a given sector. High flooring costs are therefore expected to have an impact to some degree on the growth of the industrial flooring industry. Competitors often concentrate on making tiles that can survive heavy duty activities, the cost of which is much greater. These variables could limit the growth of the demand for industrial flooring.
The worldwide crisis of COVID-19 is leading to calls for action from a wide range of stakeholders including manufacturers, vendors, distributors, and consumers. Decline in business for at least five months during 2020 coupled with lower demand from a few major markets has put pressure on the profitability of industrial flooring manufacturers and vendors. However, the negative impact of COVID-19 on Industrial flooring to be compensated over the medium to long term future. In addition, the pandemic has forced builder and contractors to delay or cancel many construction projects which has led to a million and billions of losses. Also, due to the shutdown of various industrial projects and the decline in the production of industrial products, the plan of expanding the production facility to meet the market demand have also been delayed. These delayed and cancelled projects have led to decrease in demand for industrial flooring and hence the industrial flooring market growth has also restrained.
