Carpets & Rugs

Growth in both demand and shipments will result primarily from an expected recovery in the US housing industry; residential markets accounted for over three-fifths of total demand in 2010.

US demand to rise 7.9% annually through 2015

Demand for carpet and rug products in the US is projected to increase 7.9 percent annually from a weak 2010 base to 16.5 billion square feet in 2015, accounting for about 64 percent of total floor covering demand. Shipments of carpets and rugs will total 15.3 billion square feet in 2015, valued at $14 billion. Growth in both demand and shipments will result primarily from an expected recovery in the US housing industry, which was hit hard by the recession and the sub-prime loan crisis. Residential markets are key to carpet and rug manufacturers, as these markets accounted for over three-fifths of total demand in 2010.

Carpet tile to gain market share from small base

Tufted carpet and rug products, particularly broadloom carpet, will continue to dominate demand. These “wall to wall” carpet products remain the industry standard and offer the best combination of economy, durability and aesthetics to the greatest number of consumers. Nevertheless, modular carpet (carpet tile) is an important contributor, particularly in nonresidential markets. Improvements in appearance, durability and styling options, coupled with advantages in the installation of new tiles (particularly in occupied spaces) and replacement of damaged tiles, have dramatically increased the popularity of modular carpet. Demand is expanding outward from the office and commercial sector into many nonresidential markets, and even into residential markets.

Nylon to remain dominant fiber material

Nylon will remain the dominant fiber material used in the manufacture of carpet and rug products. However, polyester has displaced polypropylene as the second most used face fiber material. Polyester fibers, made from recycled beverage bottles, have improved greatly in terms of durability, feel and appearance in recent years, and their cost advantage continues to benefit these fibers.

Carpets and rugs to maintain market position with hard surface flooring

Carpet and rug products will continue to remain locked in competition with hard surface flooring products such as ceramic and vinyl tile, hardwood flooring and laminates. The competitive advantages of carpet and rug products, such as total installed cost, as well as their tactile and aesthetic qualities, will allow these products to maintain their significant market position. In some cases, as with area rugs and throw rugs, these products complement, rather than compete with, hard surface flooring.

Study Scope

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.
