Introduction & Scope
STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
The objective of this report is to provide business planners, investors and other professionals with quantifiable market measurements and analyses that can help them
formulate strategic business plans and make key investment decisions.
REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY
Residential flooring is a $11.7 billion industry in North America that defines the livelihood of nearly 6,300 flooring contractors and almost 73,000 manufacturing employees who produce flooring products, as well as the distributors that carry these products. Although the industry was hit hard by the economic downturn of the last decade, the residential flooring industry remains a vital part of the economy and is projected to continue a healthy growth trend throughout the remainder of the second decade of the 21st century.
This BCC Research study is a comprehensive reference work that defines and describes the residential flooring industry. In the preparation of this document, we have read,
analyzed and condensed information from industry sources, trade literature, producer and distributor websites, and other reference material. The industry is diverse, highly
creative and dynamic. The range of products currently on the market is very broad, far exceeding the ability of any sole distributor to stock and wider than most industry
observers may realize. Many smaller producers today have the capability of growing into major brands tomorrow. Some of these future success stories will ride the wave of
demand for new and innovative products such as light transmissive carpeting and realistically simulated stone and wood surface laminates that are increasingly shaking
up the status quo among mainstream residential flooring alternatives.
