The migration of new generation in a region establishes more opportunities and platform for companies to invest, which alternatively increases the demand for construction flooring chemicals.

The emergence of technology and manufacturing firms on account of look east policies by developed economies such as One belt, one road, make in India plans, are driving the construction and chemical industry. Multinational companies are setting up their outposts covering Asia Pacific region, South Africa as well as parts of Europe, to facilitate the increasing demand for construction flooring chemicals.

Product Insights

Epoxy resins are having low or high molecular weight which has at least two epoxide groups. Vinyl is one of the alkenyl functional group, which is polymerized with the aid of radical initiator or catalyst. Polyurethanes is a polymer which is primarily composed of organic units connected by urethane links, whereas poly methyl methacrylate are transparent thermoplastics which is often utilized in sheet form as a light weight or alternative to glass having properties such as shatter resistance.

Over the past few years, Ineos, developed Hypersal which consist of tailor-made resins for impregnation of decor, overlay and balance papers, along with hardeners, wetting agents and release agents in order to increase production efficiency.

Forbo Holdings, developed Acoustic linoleum which is capable of reducing impact sound by 14dB (ISO 717-2). It is a twin layer linoleum built up from 2 mm Marmoleum and a 2 mm Corkment backing

LG Chem developed EQ floors, which is a multi-layered vinyl flooring having application in backing sound insulation. The product has excellent shock absorption, sound insulation properties up to 24 decibels, has superior durability by reinforced wear layer, and has properties of anti-bacterial and Fungicidal treatment.

Application Insights

The commercial sector dominated the market, accounting for 51.4% of total volume, in 2016.
