Increase in manufacturing activities along with improvements and repairs of existing floorings in the manufacturing units, is raising demand for better and more superior materials and solutions for the construction of industrial flooring. This, in turn, is boosting the demand for coatings, sealants, polymers, caulks, cement and asphalt additives and other construction chemicals used in floorings that are long lasting, cost-effective, and high performing. Government policies are further promoting and incentivizing use of energy saving and eco-friendly products. This will open up fresh opportunities for flooring material manufacturers, consultants, and installers to offer innovative flooring solutions that will also bring added benefits of energy conservation and sustainability.
