Flooring Industry

The North American flooring market is dynamic and growing. Product development, particularly in resilient flooring, is on the rise. According to industry group Resilient Floor Covering Institute (RFCI), resilient flooring is second only to carpet in floor covering sales in North America.  The Resilient flooring category includes vinyl sheet flooring, vinyl composition tile (VCT), luxury vinyl tiles and planks, linoleum, rubber, cork, and other types of synthetic flooring.  One of the fastest growing categories is luxury vinyl tile.
