Demand for Sports Flooring to Decline amid COVID-19 Pandemic

The onset of the novel COVID-19 pandemic has played a key role in halting or delaying several projects across the building & construction sector. Stringent lockdown regulations, restrictions on internal as well as cross-border transportation, and measures to contain the transmission of the virus have resulted in the closure of gymnasiums, yoga centers, and other indoor and outdoor sporting facilities due to which, the demand for sports floors is expected to remain lower than usual. Moreover, due to the current economic status in several regions and the negative impact of the pandemic, several projects are either on hold or expected to be delayed. However, as governments scramble to construct makeshift COVID-19 centers and permanent healthcare facilities, market players could potentially tap into these opportunities to generate revenues during the pandemic. While the market growth across the first two quarters of 2024 is expected to remain sluggish, the sports flooring market is expected to show signs of recovery toward the end of 2024 and the first quarter of 2024.
