- Returning confidence in the private commercial sector and the continuing growth of LVT (luxury vinyl tile) has seen modular floorcoverings increase by 22% between 2012 and 2017.
- Carpet tile is the dominant sector; however, pressures from competing modular floorcoverings have muted value growth over the last 2-3 years.
- LVT continues to outperform the wider market but the sector is increasingly subject to increased competition levels and significant downward pressure on prices.
- Imports play a significant role for the market with carpet tile, LVT/vinyl tiles and ceramic/porcelain tiles having significant import penetration levels.
- More modest annual growth rates of around 2-3% are currently forecast to 2021, reflecting the current uncertainties surrounding the Brexit process, increased competition and further pricing pressures.
