Underlayment Market to Grow Astonishingly Backed by Increasing Construction Activities Reported Worldwide: Fortune Business Insights™

The global underlayment market size is expected to grow substantially in the forthcoming years owing to the use of floor covering by commercial and residential construction industries. These are of huge utility as their purpose is to provide a smooth, flat surface for the floor covering. These are made of many different materials, such as plywood, hardboard, and cement board. These are few of the common choices by the construction industry, states Fortune Business Insights™, in its report, titled, “Underlayment market size, share & industry analysis, By Type (Foam, Felt, Polyethylene, Rubber, Cork, Plywood, Others), By Application (Tile Flooring, Laminate Flooring, Hardwood Flooring, carpet Flooring, Vinyl Flooring, Others), By End-Use (Residential Buildings, Commercial Buildings) and regional forecast 2021-2028”. To give floors cushioning, there is a significant rise in the demand for cork underlay rugs. This helps in eliminating dents and deformities of the floor. Apart from that, it also provides sound insulation and resistance to heat and moisture.

The rising demand for underlayment has led companies to come up with new innovative products to help the market grow. Leading manufacturers, such as Torlys introduced one such innovative underlay material in the year 2020, which will be easy to use as it is a self-adhesive and doesn’t require external glue to stick. The brand is named Versalay. It is compatible with the floor heating system, smoothes out the floor irregularities, and is 1.8 mm thick material that will provide comfortable cushioning to the floors.

Driving Factors

Rising Commercial Construction to Drive the Market Growth

A specialized range of products has expanded the market significantly. Earlier, only carpet used to dominate, but the ascent of rigid LVT products in recent years have taken the market as these are soundproof in nature.

In commercial constructions, these are of huge importance, especially in corporate and hospitality sectors, where people are occupying multiple levels, and ceilings are lower in height.

The other dominant factor for the rapid growth of this market is tighter timelines and high pressure on the construction industry for several years. Also, too often, it’s concrete curing is forced to yield.  As commercial construction happens over a period of time, moisture and salt hamper the concrete. To prevent this, the underlayment industry has developed a range of solutions, from moisture barriers and sealants to rapid-drying and adhesives underlay materials, which is also easy to install. All these properties are positively impacting the market growth.


Regional Insights

Asia Pacific to Dictate Fueled by Rapid Urbanization and Rising Number of Renowned Companies

These two developing countries are rigorously involved in construction and manufacturing for boosting their economy.  According to a report by PRB, both China and India are expected to have an urban population of 340 million by 2030. This will create tremendous opportunities and new ideas in the construction industry, both for commercial and residential purposes. Using underlay materials in multistory buildings, specially cork ones, helps in reducing the sound steps or any sort of noise both within the room and in the space below.

On the other hand, the European region is also keeping up the pace in the market as it is expected that 3.3 million homes will be constructed in the next 14 years. By the year 2030, the U.K. is expected to spend USD $6TN on construction works, which, in turn, will promote the demand for underlayment in the region.
