The global rubber flooring market can be considered a part of the sustainable flooring industry. Here, the primary function of manufacturing such flooring units is to reduce the pressure on the ecosystem by providing superior functionality and extended life. Sustainable flooring, as a whole, can become one of the better flooring types in terms of environmental protection as well as maintaining human health and safety. Conversely, most rubber used in the global rubber flooring market today is synthetic and therefore not completely sustainable.

Previously, rubber flooring was manufactured from rubber trees, which makes it a completely renewable resource. However, increasing demand for rubber required the use of chemical intervention. Compounds such as styrene-butadiene rubber have been in use and act as replacements for natural rubber. It is manufactured from butadiene and styrene copolymers and offers multiple advantages such as easier maintenance and installation, while reducing the need for extra insulation and soundproofing.
Growing Need for Static Control Flooring Boosts Global Rubber Flooring Market
The primary driver for the global rubber flooring market is the growing need of electrical and electronics manufacturing companies for static control flooring. Rubber provides the best solution to control and prevent static electricity, which can be detrimental to circuits that are being manufactured in these plants. The global rubber flooring market is therefore driven by demand from all places that require static control flooring, spanning from manufacturing companies to transportation and assembly locations of electronics.
Another advantage that rubber flooring provides is the anti-bacterial properties that synthetic rubber can provide. Most rubber floorings manufactured today provide high resistance against bacteria, thereby curtailing their propagation. Rubber floorings are also relatively easier to clean, making it convenient to use them in hospitals, pharmacies, and other healthcare locations where the lack of grip precludes the use of anti-bacterial tiles. Rubber floorings are also widely used in operating rooms and similar environments where the risk of transmission of diseases is otherwise high.
Booming Industries Promote Global Rubber Flooring Market
Other than the healthcare benefits of rubber floorings, this market is also driven by a currently booming construction industry. The increasing availability of infrastructure is increasing the scope of using rubber floorings. Other places where rubber floorings are used include kitchen areas in homes and restaurants, retail stores where the handling of heavy or precarious items is required, and gyms, where rubber can help reduce foot fatigue. Rubber can absorb the impact of feet easier than regular wood or ceramic floorings. This allows an individual to exert more force while reducing the overall fatigue caused by constant impact of the feet on the floor.
The key players that operate in the global rubber flooring market are Dinoflex, OTS Company, Inc., RB Rubber Products, Rephouse Ltd., and Nora Systems. Each player has made a major contribution to the global rubber flooring market in terms of manufacturing units and innovations.
