Entrance Matting Market size is expected to showcase significant growth from 2021 to 2027 driven by improved superior product quality, durability, and appealing designs. The availability of a wide range of entrance matting along with great versatility is likely to boost the industry share. The market increased substantially due to its widespread adoption by end users for different applications. Advancement of new technologies, such as 3D weaving, provides customization of shape and size of mats and provides additional features as per customer’s requirements. This technology also reduces production time, lowering overall costs.
Industry players are continuously investing in R&D to develop cost-effective entrance mats with different types of composite materials that are highly efficient for a wide range of applications. Consumer awareness and government regulations toward environment are poised to drive the eco-friendly floor mats in the near future and increase the demand for floor mats made of plant-based materials such as natural rubber, coir, jute, sisal, wool, and others. Natural materials used to manufacture entrance mats are projected to replace synthetic materials as they are free of chemical irritants and allergens. The usage of such entrance mats in residential and commercial applications will further escalate the revenue generation of entrance matting market size.
Growing industrialization, new housing, and commercial building constructions, such as apartments, hotels, offices, and hospitals, are factors boosting the growth of the world market. The increasing need for cleanliness, importance of health, and safety will augment the demand for entrance matting.
Increasing disposable income and shift toward entrance matting for indoor and outdoor usage will propel the sales in developing countries. New and innovative flooring solutions, such as marble, vitrified tiles, wooden, and laminate flooring, will boost the utilization of floor mats to protect them from scratches and damages. Consumers are also preferring layered mattings for better functionality and pleasing appeal as home furnishing is a trending activity, and these factors are fueling the market growth.
Based on materials, the entrance matting market share is classified into synthetic, natural, and others. Synthetic materials, such as nylon, polyester, polypropylene, synthetic rubber, and vinyl, will witness a considerable growth owing to the benefits offered by these materials including durable, flexible, elastic, high or low water absorbency. Compared to other natural fibers, synthetic fibers are usually more water, stain, heat, and chemical resistant.
Industry participants are developing several synthetic and bio-based fibers that can be manufactured with less energy and reduce greenhouse gas emission. For instance, PTT (Polytrimethylene Terephthalate) is more environment friendly as it requires 30% less energy and decreases 63% greenhouse gas emission compared to nylon-6.
Based on type, the entrance matting market is divided into absorbent mats, anti-slip mats, anti-fatigue, anti-static mats, drainage mats, scraper mats, walk-off mats, wiper mats, and others. Walk-off mats are anticipated to capture decent share on account of increasing demand from the commercial sector. Entrance matting serves as the first line of trapping dirt from entering the building to maintain better indoor air quality. The scraper mat demand is also increasing due to its properties such as absorb moisture, not typically affected by grease or oil. Scraper mat surface provides increased traction when wet to minimize the risk of falls.
Based on usage, the entrance matting market is segmented into indoor and outdoor. Outdoor entrance mats will account for a significant share over the forecast time frame. Outdoor mats have superior toughness, durability, and damage resistance. The type, thickness, and materials used in manufacturing entrance matting depend on indoor and outdoor usages.
The entrance matting market looks promising with opportunities in residential, commercial, and industrial sectors. The majority market is captured by the residential sector in the form of different applications. Other than residential, it is also used in hotels, hospitals, gyms, shopping centers, offices, and factories to maintain clean interior floors.
The APAC entrance matting market share is estimated to grow exponentially on account of rising sales of apartments, villas, duplex, as well as commercial properties such as offices, hotels, hospitals, and others. Moreover, the presence of multiple mat manufacturers in India and China offering a wide range of premium quality mats will further accentuate the market demand.
