GRASP FUTURE MARKETS OPPORTUNITIES
China and the greater Asia Pacific region offer unparalleled emerging opportunities for the floor covering industry. With most of the world economies suffering from recession, in 2010 China’s GDP grew 8.7%. China’s government has placed new emphasis on increasing consumerism and its citizens’ standard of living and has shifted its focus from an export led economy to increasing domestic consumption making China among the fastest growing economies in the globe and the world’s second largest luxury market.
But how does this create the largest floor covering market in the world? According to the China Index Academy, 60% of China’s citizens will migrate to urban settings by 2020, generating the largest migration and the largest demand for new urban construction the world has ever seen. This booming urban growth is producing an unprecedented domestic demand for floor covering. Between 1.6 and 1.9 billion square meters of new floor space will be built by the end of this decade in China. This demand for floor covering, installation methods and innovative solutions is unprecedented in world history and DOMOTEX asia/CHINAFLOOR is THE platform from which to reach these emerging opportunities.
Exhibiting in the center of this booming market also gives our exhibitors critical exposure to Asian business customs, culture and market channels. DOMOTEX asia/CHINAFLOOR is the best channel for the international industry to learn about and enter the largest floor covering market in the world.
