Advantages of SPC Compared with WPC and LVT

-Compared with WPC flooring, SPC flooring has the following advantages:

1) The cost price of SPC floor is low, and the price of SPC floor is positioned at the middle-level consumption; For products with the same thickness, the terminal price of SPC floor is basically 50% of that of WPC floor;

2) Thermal stability and dimensional stability are better than WPC floor, shrinkage problems are well controlled, and customer complaints are less;

3) The impact resistance is stronger than that of WPC floor. The WPC floor is foamed. The strength of the bottom plate is mainly guaranteed by the wear-resistant layer on the surface, and it is easy to sag when encountering heavy objects;

4) However, because WPC flooring is a foaming product, the foot feel is better than SPC flooring and the price is higher.

-Compared with LVT flooring, SPC flooring has the following advantages:

1) SPC is an upgraded product of LVT, and the traditional LVT floor is positioned at the middle and low end;

2) LVT flooring has simple technology, uneven quality. The sales in the U.S. flooring market have dropped by more than 10% every year. Since LVT flooring has gradually been accepted by developing countries in Latin America, Asia and other regions.

In the next few years, if there is no large-scale technological revolution or innovation, it can be predicted that the PVC floor market will grow at a rate of about 15% per year, of which the growth rate of the PVC sheet floor market will exceed 20%, and the PVC coil floor market will further shrink. In terms of products, SPC flooring will become the most main product in the PVC flooring market in the next few years and will continue to expand its market capacity at a growth rate of about 20%; WPC flooring follows closely, and the market capacity will grow at a slightly lower rate in several years (if the production cost can be reduced through technical transformation, WPC flooring is still the most competitive competitor of SPC flooring); The market capacity of LVT flooring will remain stable.
