The world of wood floors has been gaining in popularity, and there are several reasons why. In developing countries, middle-class consumers are growing and the trend will continue into the future. However, there are a few important factors to consider as we look to develop new technologies for wood flooring. In the end, the future of the industry depends on sustainability. Here are three reasons why sustainable wood flooring is the way to go. o Consumers are more willing to spend more for more beautiful floors.
o High-definition digital printing: Another emerging technology that could revolutionize the industry is digital printing.
