From a global perspective, vinyl flooring has developed earlier and is widely popular in Europe, America, Japan and South Korea in Asia. In contrast, vinyl flooring developed relatively late in China and began to enter the domestic market in the 1980s. Until 2000, the whole vinyl flooring industry was in the primary exploration stage; From 2000 to 2004, vinyl flooring began to enter the initial stage of development in China; From 2004 to 2008, vinyl flooring was gradually recognized by the market. Especially with the successful holding of Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, domestic sports vinyl flooring and commercial vinyl flooring were gradually affirmed by domestic customers. More and more stadiums and competition venues began to choose professional sports vinyl flooring; Since 2008, China’s vinyl flooring has entered a stage of rapid development, and the whole market operation tends to be mature. Domestic southeast coast and developed cities have become popular in a large area, such as some supermarkets, hospitals, schools, office buildings, factories and other places have begun to be used
Compared with foreign countries, there is still a certain gap in the popularity of vinyl flooring in China, but after decades of development, people have recognized vinyl flooring. At present, plastic flooring is widely used in medical treatment, elderly care, education, commerce, office, sports, fitness, workshops and other places. Vinyl flooring has occupied a very important position in floor decoration materials. According to the statistics of China Resilient Flooring Association, the production of Vinyl flooring in China has increased steadily. By 2021, the production of plastic flooring in China was 1191 million m2.
Although vinyl flooring technology is imported from abroad to China, China’s export volume of vinyl flooring cannot be underestimated. The domestic demand of plastic flooring is almost in direct proportion to the export volume. With the advantages of low labor cost and complete industrial chain, China has become the largest producer and exporter of vinyl flooring. The export volume has increased steadily from 2014 to 2019. Even thought the world is affected by the pandemic in 2020, the export volume of vinyl flooring still maintained a high growth of more than 10%. China’s export countries of vinyl flooring mainly include the United States, Canada, Germany, Southeast Asia and many other countries, of which the number exported to the United States is the largest, accounting for nearly half.
PVC flooring is still a fast-growing industry in China, and the industry competition is increasing day by day. More and more people are involved in the PVC flooring industry. Some people come in and some leave. After a period of baptism, the whole industry can only leave enterprises that put products and services in the first place. The time after the pandemic is both a challenge and an opportunity for the PVC flooring industry
It is really fast growing of China vinyl flooring market, included export, domestic consumption and total production. According to the Chinese Vinyl Flooring Factory Association Report, the vinyl flooring grows more than 10% each year for the last 20 years. And it is forecast that the vinyl flooring market will keep growing for the next 10 years by at least 8% each year.
LVT is the one with very fast growing, homogeneous vinyl sheet flooring, heterogeneous vinyl sheet flooring, and ESD sheet vinyl flooring are also enjoy fast growing too.
In recent years, vinyl flooring represented by sheet sheet, LVT, SPC and WPC has become a building decoration material with an increasingly wide range of applications because of its light weight, wear resistance and flame retardant. The production and sales volume has shown explosive growth. In the future, domestic demand and export will become a strong engine for the development of domestic PVC flooring. The broad market and rapidly growing demand attract more and more enterprises to enter this field, and the PVC flooring industry is ushering in the opportunity of rapid development.
Installation technology requirements are higher and higher
The unlimited requirements for the safety of decorative materials and the insatiable pursuit of decorative effects will greatly change the simple installation process of existing vinyl flooring. In order to better show the colorful decorative effect of vinyl flooring, the requirements for the technical level of installation companies and installation personnel will be higher and higher, which will promote the more mature construction technology and the more standardized industry.
The industrial division of labor is becoming more and more detailed
With the more and more extensive use of vinyl flooring, a relatively standardized sales and installation system has been slowly established, with detailed division of labor. Suppliers are very familiar with materials and performance. They are the best construction organizers, and have become one of the most remarkable characteristics of this industry.
Resource integration promoted large-scale production and strengthened industrial concentration
The number of output enterprises of vinyl flooring is large, and the production technology level of each enterprise is different, resulting in different quality of floor products and poor large-scale production capacity. With the improvement of environmental protection index requirements and the diversity and personalized development of consumers’ needs, enterprises with scale effect, advanced technology and strong capital will occupy greater competitive advantages, and finally form large-scale enterprises with brand effect to realize resource integration.
Technology driven R & D and continuous technological innovation
In order to meet the more stringent requirements of environmental indicators and consumer needs, the vinyl flooring industry needs to carry out product development and design closer to the market in order to improve the core competitiveness of products.
