Carpets & Rugs to 2015 - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

Demand for carpet and rug products in the US is projected to rise 7.9 percent annually from a weak 2010 base to 16.5 billion square feet in 2015. Tufted carpet and rug products, particularly broadloom carpet, will continue to dominate demand. Nylon will remain the dominant face fiber material, while polyester fibers displace polypropylene.

This study analyzes the 17.8 billion square foot US carpet and rug industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2010, and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by material (face fibers, primary backing, secondary backing, adhesives), product (e.g., tufted, woven, needle-punched) and market (residential building, nonresidential building, transportation equipment).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 32 industry players, including Mohawk Industries, Shaw Industries and Beaulieu.
