Foreign carpet development trends and conditions
Analysis of the development history, production situation, domestic and external use of household and commercial carpets, as well as the overall trend of the carpet industry.
In 1791, the first carpet factory in the United States was established in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Today, there are 239 carpet manufacturers in 21 states in the United States.
In 1996, the United States used the US dollar to calculate the production value of the carpet industry of 10.1 billion US dollars, retail value of about 15.5 billion US dollars.
In 1950, the US carpet industry exported 81.1 million square meters. The annual export volume is about 1.3 billion square meters.
In the 46 years from 1950 to 1996, the price of carpets increased by 85.7%; the price of new car carpets increased by 266.9% over the same period; the price growth rate of integrated goods was 367.8%. It is estimated that ten of the largest carpet companies in the US carpet industry produce 90% of carpets and rugs; five of the largest carpet manufacturers produce 72.4% of carpets and rugs. Georgia, USA, produces more than 74% of all American carpets and rugs. There are 171 239 carpet manufacturers in the United States located in Georgia.
In 1950, woven carpets accounted for 80% of the carpet's market share in square yards. But now it only accounts for 1.4%. In 1950, tufted carpets accounted for only 20% of the market share, but now it has reached 90.8% of the total carpet production. Currently, other structural carpets (such as: knitted carpets, needle-punched carpets, knitted carpets, crochet carpets, etc.) account for market share. 7.8%. Carpets account for 70% of all land parcels in the United States. In homes, offices, schools and other facilities, the annual carpet replacement rate is about 67%.
According to statistics on the production of carpets in 1996, about 25.1% of the final consumption is in the commercial market, and the rest is in the civilian market. Among the total carpet market (74.9%), about 56.0% are residents' own consumption, and 19.0% are commercial commercial markets (for example: regional housing, apartment housing, mobile housing). In the current US export market, the value of 11.11 million square meters of carpet is 757 million US dollars, and in 1970, only 61.86 million square meters worth 25 million dollars. But the competition in the carpet export market is getting more and more fierce. In 1970, American carpet exports accounted for 51% of the world's total, but now only 45%. Today, more than 70 countries are producing tufted carpets.
The five largest countries and regions that accept US carpet exports are: Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Japan, and Hong Kong. The five largest suppliers to the United States are India, China, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Belgium.
Europe, Belgium, the United Kingdom and Germany are the three major tufted carpet manufacturers in Europe. In recent years, they have developed at different speeds. In 2005, Belgium's tufted carpet production accounted for 14% of all tufted carpets in Europe and increased in 2010. By 24%, the production of tufted carpets in the UK accounted for 14% in 2005, and in 2010 less than 10% Germany remained only around 10%. In addition, the production of tufted carpets in the Netherlands, Sweden and Denmark also increased rapidly. In 2010, the polypropylene filament used in the production of tufted carpets in Western Europe was about 242.5 million square meters, and the nylon filaments were about 357.7 billion square meters. In 2010, the needle-punched carpet consumed polypropylene 100%, accounting for 69%, and consumed polyester 26.5kt (18.3%). Consumption of nylon 173kt (11.9%). At present, the number of carpets occupied by people in Europe is 3.3 square meters per person.
At present, the market for tufted carpets in Japan has shown a trend of shrinking. However, depending on the purpose, some areas are expected to maintain the status quo or continue to expand. The place where the retail store sells the "post" indicates that the size unit has the whole roll of the "post", and the "simple carpet" which is also sold in units of the "post" is also sold in the size of a centimeter. There are many varieties such as rugs. Among them, the scale of the market is shrinking, which is the “posts” and “simple carpets” sold on the premise of the entire room.
The Rug (small carpet) market, where users need to lay a part of the floor room, is expanding. Japan's carpet sales mainly include two forms for decorative contractors and general consumers. The part facing the decoration contractor is the carpet used for the hotel, office building or residential building. The wide-format carpet market currently sold to decorative contractors in Japan is shrinking every year. The data shows that the production area of wide-format carpets in 2010 was almost halved compared to 2002. One of the main markets for wide rugs is the Superior Apartment. And it is increasingly starting to switch to the floor. This has become a major factor in the shrinking of the currency market. Commercial facilities such as hotels are another major market. Also due to the economic downturn, the period of re-conversion has been extended. Also. Newly built hotels are also used by foreign carpet manufacturers and wholesalers because of the large number of European and American companies.
The market for home rugs sold in stores is also affected by the economic downturn, which is slowly shrinking. According to the sales trend in the Japanese market, the market for larger sized carpets, such as 4 placards and 6 placards, is shrinking, and the market for small sized carpets such as 180 cm is expanding. Now in order to meet the needs of the market, some Japanese manufacturers have begun to actively develop Rugs with high added value.
In recent years, Taiwan’s unit price of export products has generally fallen sharply. Many Taiwanese carpet companies, which were mainly exported to the outside world, have intensified their efforts to develop the domestic mainland market. In addition, due to the suspension or construction of some domestic new construction and reconstruction projects in the past two years, the domestic carpet home market has developed rapidly. Some Taiwanese carpet companies that originally only used engineering projects began to develop the home market for the characteristics of mainland consumption.
