Laminate flooring market predicted to grow in the UK

The European Producers of Laminate Flooring Association (EPLF) has announced that its members sold 447 million square metres of laminate flooring last year, slightly down on the 2018 figure of 454 million.

One of the reasons for the small decline in 2019 sales is that exports to several regions – including Asia, Latin America and Africa – fell.

During the second half of 2019, sales of laminates improved by 1.1% compared to the first half of the year, and this upward trend is expected to continue in 2020.

Germany is the largest market for laminate flooring in Europe, selling 50 million square metres in 2019, a decline of 5% on the 2018 sales of 52 million. Britain did better than many European countries, selling 32.6 million square metres of laminates in 2019, a 9.5% increase on the 29.8 million in 2018. The UK is the third largest market for laminate flooring behind France and Germany.

The EPLF is a German-based organisation that represents the leading manufactures of laminate flooring in Europe.

Laminate flooring in Cheshire rooms remains a popular choice for users who want flooring that looks like natural wood but comes at a lower price. Laminate flooring is long-lasting and easy to maintain, which is why so many Cheshire businesses have installed laminate in high-footfall areas.

Modern printing technology has created premium quality laminate flooring that looks realistic for Cheshire people who love the look of natural wood. It is expected that more Cheshire individuals and businesses will choose laminate flooring in 2020.
