The global market for Carpets and Rugs is projected to exceed US$40 billion by 2024, driven by the encouraging recovery in residential and commercial construction spending and the growing preference for modular carpet solutions. Few of the benefits of carpeted flooring driving adoption rates in the market include higher thermal resistance/R-value and the ensuing energy efficiency benefits; lower noise and sound acoustic effects; improved air quality given carpets low VOC emitting characteristics as against traditional flooring; imparts elegance and style; and low maintenance load. Carpets are also safer with reduced risk of slip-and-fall accidents, a feature benefit that is driving adoption in the growing number of senior housing facilities. The United States and Europe represent large markets worldwide, supported by cold climatic conditions that make warm and comfortable carpets the preferred flooring choice. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market with a projected CAGR of 4.8% over the analysis period, led by factors such as presence of leading carpet manufacturing countries such as China and India, rapid urbanization, expanding base of middle class population and the corresponding rise in demand for well provisioned houses, lifestyle upgrades and increased spending on home furnishings and interiors, and robust demand for decorative rugs.
