    Market Highlights

    For industrial environments, there are a variety of flooring solutions, each with different characteristics. It is a big challenge for the company to simultaneously maintain its flooring along with the business operations. This gives birth to huge repair and maintenance costs. Therefore, it is vital for companies to invest in durable, resistant, and low-maintenance floors. Industrial floors are majorly classified according to the material from which they are made, which can be epoxy, polyurethane, and MMA. The company must understand the type of industrial floor that is best suited for its operations. Cost, durability, aesthetics, and maintenance requirements are some of the major criteria in the selection of the type of flooring. Currently, epoxy and concrete are referred to as the best industrial flooring options.

    Epoxy flooring is the preferred choice for industrial workplaces, which is commonly selected because of its high versatility and durability. Epoxy flooring is made from several strong epoxy layers, as opposed to just one layer in epoxy coating. Therefore, it can withstand constant and heavy traffic and is also easy to clean and maintain.

    The industrial Flooring market witnessed a moderate decline of 4.3% in 2020 amid the pandemic. However, the market experienced robust growth of 32.1% in 2021, due to an increase in construction activities, increasing significance of safety and environmental regulations, and an abrupt increase in raw material prices. In the long run, the industrial flooring market is likely to register at a promising CAGR of 5.3% to reach US$ 6.1 Billion in 2028.

    The market for industrial flooring is gradually consolidating every year as many companies are engaged in mergers & acquisitions to quickly gain a market-leading position and to tap the growing opportunities in the briskly expanding market. For example, in 2021, RPM’s division Carboline acquired Dudik Inc., a standalone world leader in high-performance coatings, flooring, and tank linings. Similarly, The Sherwin-Williams Company acquired Tennant Coatings in 2021, and COVESTRO Group acquired Industrials & Functional Materials Business from Royal DSM, which will enhance its global network.
