Carpet tile segment among other product types will dominate the modular flooring market during the forecast period

Carpet tile flooring is a type of flooring that can be used as an alternative to the more commonly used broadloom (roll) carpet. They provide the warmth and underfoot comfort expected of a rug and are available in its pre-sized squares and planks, patterns and materials. Modular carpet tiles are four times more efficient than full width carpets. Modular tiles are not only easy to install, but also much easier to store and even easier to replace the same color and design after years of use. Carpet tiles are gaining popularity in commercial settings, such as restaurants, retail stores and the hospitality sector as well as in the residential segment. They are easy to maintain, easy to install and offer unique designs for a comfortable environment. They allow for faster installation and reduced waste. The acoustic characteristics allow the use of carpet tiles in areas where sound insulation is required. This flooring material is gaining popularity due to its cost-effective nature, durability and range of aesthetic design, thanks to the integration of new technologies.

Workplace segment to witness a higher CAGR during the forecast period.

Workplaces require special attention, as busy work hallways require durable floors that can withstand heavy foot traffic and are easy to clean and maintain. Factors to consider when choosing modular flooring for workplaces are aesthetics and functionality. In addition, budget, traffic, design and maintenance requirements play a significant role in installing the right workplace flooring. Modular flooring suitable for workplaces should also be commercial grade.

Floors suitable for workplaces can withstand daily traffic and the movement of chairs and other furniture. Another important thing to consider in the workplace is noise. Depending on the type of work, most workplaces require a quiet environment. A carpet is a suitable option for sound insulation; however, it may not be ideal for busy workplaces as they can add to additional cleaning and maintenance. In such a situation, hard surface floors such as laminate or engineered wood and luxury vinyl tile can work if an underlayment is installed to reduce noise.

Considering work safety as a major aspect, non-slip or non-slip flooring is necessary. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), floors and flooring materials directly contribute to more than 2 million fall injuries per year. Trends such as office layouts with adequate wayfinding and office zoning measures in accordance with government guidelines are essential for workplace safety. By embedding signage into the floor, employees have a clear, constant, and visual reminder of how to navigate the workplace. Modular flooring solutions such as carpet tiles and luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) offer multiple varieties in terms of colors and patterns, which can be used independently and together.
