Industry Insights

The global fiberglass flooring market size was USD 531 million in 2015 and is expected to witness immense growth on account of its rising usage in residential, commercial, and industrial applications. Construction growth in emerging countries such as China and India owing to rapid industrialization, population growth, and urbanization is likely to spur growth.

Fiberglass is used as a backing material in vinyl flooring products including luxury vinyl tiles, vinyl composite tiles, and vinyl sheets. Fiberglass exhibits superior properties as compared to felt backing including non-allergen and longer lifespan, making it a viable option, which is anticipated to increase its share tremendously over the forecast period.

Rapid expansion and capacity addition by various industries including automobile manufacturing, telecom, and semiconductor coupled with the growing number of office buildings in the U.S. will spur the demand for fiberglass floorings. Moreover, terminal expansion of the Los Angeles Airport, Philadelphia Airport and Newark Liberty Airport is likely to create substantial growth opportunities for the market over the next nine years.

Fluctuating prices of raw materials along with difficulty in sourcing them are expected to serve as a major challenge for the flooring manufacturers over the forecast period and also restrict growth for fiberglass.

Application Insights

Commercial construction was the dominant segment and accounted for 52.1% of the overall revenue share in 2015. The growing requirement for office buildings, retail stores, shopping malls, hotels, cafes, hospitals, theme parks, and leisure centers will drive the demand for fiberglass floorings in the commercial construction sector over the forecast period.
