This segment currently accounts for a 37% share of the global wood flooring market.

The engineered wood segment dominates the market, due to the increasing number of manufacturers who prefer this product due to its positive attributes including cost effectiveness and dimensional stability. Engineered wood offers a good substitute for hardwood and concrete; thus resulting in increased demand for the segment. The solid wood segment is expected to benefit from the increase in commercial applications of solid wood in public places such as theaters, restaurants, spas and hotels.

The evolution of lifestyles, the growth of the urban population in Asia Pacific region, increasing spending on home renovations and improvements and increasing consumer demand for eco-friendly materials are some of the major growth drivers that are increasing the demand for wood flooring.

With refinancing, housing and renovation trends remaining strong, the outlook for timber sales is promising. The generally positive outlook and stable demand for wood flooring is also boosted by advances in materials and technology, including water-resistant products and digital printing. New constructions and greater penetration of high-end markets are also boosting the market outlook.

Going forward, the preference for green products is expected to revive consumer interest and reinvigorate demand patterns. Wider planks, long planks, lighter and natural wood colors and matte gloss finishes are some of the emerging trends seen in the wood flooring space. The growing popularity of modern minimalist design is a prime factor driving the demand for white oak flooring.

Manufacturers are developing engineered products with hard cores such as minerals and strong polymers to endow wood flooring with waterproof properties. Adding coatings to engineered products seals the edges.
