Increasing government spending on infrastructure development on non-residential structures is expected to play a vital role in augmenting demand for flooring. Moreover, the emergence of India, Taiwan, and Mexico as the upcoming manufacturing hubs will not only result in the establishment of factories but also, in a significant population migrating close to these centers, resulting in the development of new cities or expansion of the existing towns.
