Pre-Event Report- CII Industrial Floorings

Industrial Floorings: Challenges and Opportunities


Modernisation in every industry has created demand for innovative solutions pertaining to flooring products. Global industrial flooring market is also driven by the growing concern towards improving workplace aesthetics as well. Various manufacturers are taking operational factors into account such as movement and activities taking place within the building premises. Global industrial flooring market is driven by the growth of industrial, commercial and healthcare sectors.  Rising urbanisation and modernisation of industries are the key growth drivers for the global industrial flooring market. In addition, development of innovative construction solutions with the growing demand of sustainable products is a big opportunity for the industrial flooring market. Growing economies such as BRICS nations are expected to be the key driver for the growth of global flooring market in next few years.



Flooring industry is at the rising edge and the designers, developers and users are still to be educated on the accessible technology. There is need provide a common platform for stakeholders of flooring industry to discuss technology, methodology, new materials and testing procedures on various issues related to industry.

As an initiative, the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), Western region, will provide a common platform for flooring industry and its stakeholders to come together and discuss about the issues faced, latest technology on offer and its application by organising a 2-Day National Flooring Conference, A Technology Conference on Industrial Flooring – Challenges and Opportunities at The Lalit, Mumbai on
12th and 13th September 2017.



Limited shell type stalls would be available for companies who are interested to exhibit their products.
