European Flooring Market Continues to Recover

According to ITTO, the European ‘real-wood’ flooring industry continues to experience moderate growth, benefiting from encouraging economic developments, especially in construction activity.


Compared to the same period last year, provisional results for the first half of 2017 point to a continuation of the positive parquet consumption trends observed in 2016 and during the first quarter of 2017.


These are the main conclusions of the market discussion of the Board of Directors of the European Federation of the Parquet Industry (FEP) when they met in September 2017.


The promising developments reported by FEP members were registered in all countries where FEP members are present, with no single country reporting a decline in consumption.
