Chinese demand for hard surface flooring will rise 7.3 percent annually through 2010. Ceramic floor tile will remain dominant while laminate flooring will lead gains among the major products. The housing market will outpace the nonresidential building segment, spurred by ongoing privatization, higher incomes and further growth in larger new homes.

It presents historical demand data for 1995, 2000 and 2005 and forecasts to 2010 and 2015 by flooring product (e.g., ceramic, laminate, wood, stone, bamboo, vinyl, rubber, cork); market (e.g., residential, nonresidential, transportation equipment); and region (e.g., Northeast, Central-East, Central-South).
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 35 major players including DareGlobal, Guangdong Fotao, Hangzhou Nabel, Guangdong Dongpeng, New Zhongyuan Ceramics, Foshan Oceano).
