Product Update: Ultra-Soft Carpeting Promotes Demand

Ultra-soft carpeting has seen strong gains in demand, particularly in residences, as homeowners look to add to the beauty and comfort of their homes. Consumers increasingly install plush carpeting in living rooms and bedrooms to add warmth and create a physically comfortable environment. Manufacturers will continue to promote the use of ultra-soft carpeting by offering products that have pleasing visuals without sacrificing durability and stain resistance.

Key Findings in the Carpets & Rugs Study:

Rising Residential Construction Activity Spurs the Installation of Carpets & Rugs

Demand for carpets and rugs in the US is projected to advance 4.5 percent annually to 14.6 billion square feet in 2019, valued at $16.2 billion. Increases in housing starts and strong interest in home renovation projects, such as the removal of worn or out-of-style carpets and rugs, will spur demand. The installation of new carpeting can improve a home’s appearance and boost its value. However, hard surface flooring, which has taken market share from carpets and rugs in the floor covering market over the past decade, will continue to do so going forward.

Carpet Tiles Will Gain Share of Tufted Carpets & Rugs

Tufted carpets and rugs account for the majority of carpet and rug demand by area because of their low cost, ease of installation, and favorable aesthetic and performance properties. Robust advances in building construction activity will drive demand for tufted carpets and rugs. Among the different tufted products, carpet tiles will post strong gains because of their ease of installation and ability to be removed in case of staining or premature wear and tear. Broadloom carpeting will continue to capture the majority of tufted demand because of broadloom’s low cost and consumer desire for wall to wall carpeting.

New Housing Offers Superior Growth Prospects

New housing will see the fastest gains in carpets and rugs demand through 2019. Carpets and rugs are often installed in newly built houses because of their moderate cost, ease of installation, and favorable aesthetics. Residential remodeling and replacement will continue to account for the largest share of carpet and rug demand as homeowners replace older or worn carpets and rugs with newer products that offer enhanced visuals or improved stain resistance. In the commercial market, demand for carpets and rugs will be supported by rising spending on office and commercial and institutional construction, the market segments where carpets and rugs are used most extensively. Nonetheless, carpets and rugs will face fierce competition from hard surface flooring, which consumers often see as offering more durability or a more attractive appearance.

Study Coverage

This Freedonia industry study analyzes the $11.6 billion US carpet and rug industry. It presents historical demand data (2004, 2009, and 2014) and forecasts (2019 and 2024) by material (e.g., face fibers, backing, adhesives), product (e.g., tufted carpets and rugs, woven carpets and rugs), and market (e.g., residential, nonresidential buildings, transportation equipment). The study also details industry structure, evaluates company market share, and profiles 37 industry players, including Beaulieu of America, Mohawk and Shaw.
