The North American luxury vinyl tile (LVT) market has witnessed substantial growth for the past couple of years. The market accounted for a volume of 325.2 million square meters in 2020, and it is expected to reach almost 474.5 million square meters by 2026, registering a CAGR of more than 6% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, North America was under lockdown from mid-February 2020, which restricted the construction of housing and building projects. The lockdown restrictions limited the new purchases of LVT flooring owing to uncertainty in the economy and purchasing power parity in North America. The market, however, is anticipated to bounce back during the forecast period with the changing situation and customers’ approach toward the pandemic.
The demand for luxury vinyl tiles is expected to be driven by the growing construction industry, the rise in renovation and remodeling, and the rising popularity of tiles. An increase in real estate investments has led to the growth of the construction industry. The rise in the construction of commercial buildings, such as commercial complexes, educational institutes, and offices, increases the demand for luxury vinyl tiles in this market. Growth in the number of housing projects worldwide will increase the demand for luxury vinyl tiles. Apart from this, rising technological advancements in the manufacturing process have also led to a growth in the vinyl flooring market in terms of performance, installation, and design. Factors such as increased expenditure on the remodeling of construction activities impact the market positively. Moreover, reforms and regulations introduced by governments, to strengthen the growth of their infrastructure and real-estate industries, may lead to the growth of the construction industry and drive the demand for luxury vinyl tiles in the structure. With the improving living standards, the consumers are inclined toward better interior decoration and aesthetics, mainly for flooring, fueling the market for luxury vinyl tiles.
