1. Vinyl Flooring Market Trend
It is no secret that laminate flooring is one of the most popular flooring choices in the market. But ever since the US “poison floor” incident, exports decreased 70% which brought a huge negative impact to laminate floor manufacturers. In the recent years, the United States has continuously raised the threshold of imports of wood products. Just a few months ago, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), published a rule for the implementation of the 2010 Formaldehyde Standards Act for wood products which are imported and locally produced in the US. While the US is China’s largest market for wood product exports, the implementation of this rule will negatively impact China’s export of composite wood products. Therefore, we are expecting growth in the export of SPC rigid vinyl flooring in the coming years.
