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 This Study
Residential flooring is a $14.8 billion industry in North America that defines the livelihood of nearly 16,000 flooring contractors and almost 95,000 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 forecast period. This BCC Research study is a comprehensive reference work that defines and describes the residential flooring industry. In the preparation of this document, BCC Research has 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

Scope of Report
Following are brief summaries of the chapters included in this report. The Chapter One summary presents the report’s scope, methodology and structure, as well as brief overviews of each of the report’s chapters. Chapter three provides a high-level overview of the residential flooring industry, including historical, current and future industry perspectives, as well as a look at current, and anticipated manufacturing issues and trends. The chapter also covers current market conditions in the new construction and renovation residential segments. Chapter three also includes an overview of industry trade organizations, such as the National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) and the North American Building Material Distribution Association (NABMDA). The chapter also discusses the key trade shows that residential flooring manufacturers and other industry participants attend, such as one of the industry’s largest events, The International Surface Event: Surfaces—StonExpo/Marmomacc—TileExpo. The chapter also details the primary trade media that cover the industry, such as Floor Covering News.

Product types in the residential flooring industry are in a constant state of evolution and at different stages of innovation in an effort to meet changing market needs and demands. Chapter Four provides a detailed look at seven different residential flooring categories—carpet, ceramic tile, hardwood,
laminates, stone, other resilient and vinyl—including associated new products and technologies, and applicable environmental programs and incentives, as well as government regulations and requirements affecting each flooring type. Chapter Four provides a comprehensive overview of the residential flooring market size and growth in North America through 2021. A preview of residential flooring value by region is provided here, setting the stage for more detailed breakdowns by distribution channel and by product category, both in this chapter and in Chapter Five: Market Definition. For the purposes of this report, BCC Research has analyzed Southeast, Northeast, Midwest, Southwest, West regions in the U.S., as well as Canada, to complete our North American residential flooring research.

Chapter Four also includes a breakdown of residential flooring expenditures by flooring type—carpet, ceramic tile, hardwood, laminates, stone, other resilient and vinyl—through 2021 in million squares and million dollars for the six key industry distribution channels: floor covering stores; furniture and home
furnishing stores; home improvement centers and building materials supplies dealers; general merchandise stores; electronic and online sales; and direct sales.
Finally, growth projection data analysis for this chapter covers residential flooring volume by product type though 2021 in million squares and million dollars.
For the market definition part of this report in Chapter Five, BCC Research analyzed the two primary residential flooring segments in North America: new construction and renovation. The residential flooring analysis contains expenditure and share data for the years 2015 and 2016, as well as projections for 2021 along with the compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) for the years 2016 through 2021. We have also provided a detailed analysis on the following six North American regions: Southeast, Northeast, Midwest, Southwest, West and Canada.
