US demand for hard surface flooring is projected to advance 1.6% annually through 2024 to 12.5 billion square feet valued at $19.8 billion. Gains will be supported by:

  • the overall shift among consumers and end users to installing hard surface flooring instead of carpets
  • rising interest – especially among homeowners – in installing luxury vinyl tile (LVT) because of its low cost and favorable aesthetic and performance properties
  • continuing preference for flooring materials that provide a wood look to floors, supporting demand for both hardwood flooring and materials that can re-create that look, such as LVT and decorative tile

Commercial Markets Affected by COVID-19 Pandemic More Than Residential Market

The COVID-19 pandemic negatively affected both residential and commercial flooring demand in 2020:

  • The commercial market was more harshly affected, as many businesses closed or cut back on operations. This drop in revenues caused many firms to cancel flooring replacement projects in that year. Furthermore, the commercial flooring market will continue to be negatively affected in 2021, as changing work and consumer patterns will mean fewer office buildings, retail sites, and restaurants will need to be built.
  • In the residential market, heightened consumer interest in home improvements and repairs – a number of which included installing new flooring, especially products that could be installed as part of a DIY project – nearly offset the declines in the spring.

Consumers Continue to Specify Hard Surface Flooring

Hard surface flooring has overtaken installed carpeting as the leading installed flooring in the US. Consumers opt for hard surface flooring because of its longer lifespan compared to carpeting and its superior resistance to stain and damage caused by moisture and wear. In many cases – especially in the residential market – hard surface flooring will also be specified because of its favorable aesthetics. Many people prefer the look of wood or stone flooring because of its warmth or natural appearance, and it is now commonly installed in parts of the house (such as living areas and bedrooms) where carpeting traditionally dominated.

LVT Will See the Fastest Growth of All Hard Surface Flooring Materials

Demand for LVT surged over the past decade to become the leading hard surface flooring material installed in the US, and it will post the strongest demand gains going forward. Use of LVT has been spurred by its low cost, ease of installation, and favorable performance properties. Through 2024, demand for LVT – in both residential and commercial markets – will be promoted by:

  • its ability to resemble such materials as hardwood and natural stone flooring

manufacturer efforts to offer products more suited in commercial structures, such as those with stone or wood-plastic composite backings
