The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “GCC Flooring Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024”, finds that the GCC flooring market size reached US$ 11.3 Billion in 2018. Flooring refers to a finished layer that provides a clean, durable and impervious leveled surface. It generally consists of two main components, namely the floor base and floor covering. The floor base offers support to the floor covering, which includes a layer of materials such as marble, tiles or mosaic. The GCC countries are currently experiencing increased participation of the private sector with an enhanced focus on sustainable economic growth and expansion of non-oil industries. These developments have encouraged the renovation of existing infrastructure as well as the construction of new buildings across the region, which in turn, is leading to higher demand for various flooring products.
