Interior designers and architects are now more keen on turning their attention to parquetry in order to produce attractive interiors for commercial buildings. This is especially true for those working in the hospitality and sports sectors. There has been a boom in the hospitality and tourism industries in countries like Brazil, India, Indonesia, the Philippines, and France.

Key Market Segments:

Low Impact and Moisture Resistance Capabilities of Wood Flooring Limits Its Adoption

These conditions can cause damage to flooring products. Ceramic tiles, resilient floorings, and carpets may at times appear more attractive than wooden flooring.
