SUMMARY OF MAJOR FINDINGS

The decline in the $20 billion (manufacturers’ dollars) U.S. floor coverings market accelerated in the second half of 2008 and dropped at even sharper rates in the second half of 2009, as the domestic economy went into a severe recession. The drop in 2009 will be the fourth consecutive year of declining sales. This unprecedented industry contraction reflects the 39.0% drop in total U.S. housing demand, the deep cut in U.S. household wealth, and the recent downturn in nonresidential markets as the recession moved through the entire economy. All industry sectors were adversely affected by the decline in U.S. floor coverings sales. However, lower priced products, such as carpet and vinyl flooring, are outperforming overall industry trends as consumers shifted down market as unemployment rates rose. Consumers are also turning to home centers to purchase flooring in a search for the best product prices and the lowest installation costs. The above trends are causing industry profit margins to decline sharply. As a result, manufacturers are cutting capacity, employment levels, and capital expenditures to reduce costs. This has resulted in the consolidation of industry sales into the leading manufacturers and marketers.
