Recently, the first China (Shanghai) Bamboo Products Expo was held in Shanghai. The expo puts forward the concept of “whole bamboo home”, which closely links bamboo products with people's home life and provides more choices for people's household items. In recent years, due to the deep-rooted concept of low-carbon environmental protection, bamboo has gradually been favored by the building materials market, and the advantages of green products of bamboo products have also been recognized by consumers. The bamboo flooring, which is in an important position in bamboo products, has also attracted people's attention.
China has abundant bamboo resources. Bamboo species in China account for nearly 60% of the world's bamboo species and 27% of the world's bamboo forest area. Moreover, the traditional culture of our country also gives the bamboo a noble "humanistic spirit". The bamboo and plum, orchid and chrysanthemum are collectively hailed as "the four gentlemen in the flower", and Su Shi has the famous saying that "it is better to eat without meat, not to live without bamboo". . However, bamboo has always been at the edge of China's building materials market, especially bamboo flooring. Although it is widely accepted in the European and American markets with high-carbon flooring with low carbon environmental protection, its development in the domestic market has always been sluggish, so that it is domestic. 90% of bamboo flooring is exported.
After the Copenhagen conference, countries around the world called for the concept of “low-carbon and environmental protection” and increased the protection of forest resources. The cost of solid wood flooring rises, and the high cost makes many people scream. On the other hand, the consumption of wood by solid wood flooring is huge; laminate flooring and laminate flooring can reduce the consumption of wood more effectively, but formaldehyde is often exposed. The problem of exceeding the standard.
In this case, bamboo flooring has gained an opportunity for development with its absolute advantage of low carbon and environmental protection.
There are abundant bamboo resources, strong productivity, and good development opportunities. So, can bamboo flooring be freed from the edge of the flooring market and integrated into the mainstream market?
In this regard, the reporter interviewed Huang Changxing, deputy secretary general of the Shanghai Interior Decoration Industry Association. Huang Changxing told reporters: "As far as the current situation is concerned, bamboo products and bamboo flooring are highly likely to become mainstream products in the market. As people's understanding of low-carbon environmental protection deepens and consumer concepts become more and more rational, consumers are concerned about bamboo. With the new understanding of the products, coupled with the government's support and the bamboo products, the timing of the development of bamboo products is very mature. I personally believe that the bamboo flooring will be well utilized in the next five years. This is not to say that bamboo flooring or bamboo products will replace wood flooring or wood products, but will get rid of the marginal status of the past and enter the mainstream market, and there will be a situation of 'coexistence of bamboo and wood'."
Of course, it is not enough for an industry to stand in the market and ultimately occupy the market with opportunities. Seizing the opportunity and turning the opportunity into an effective development booster is the king of success. As far as the bamboo flooring industry is concerned, the current development opportunities are undoubtedly unprecedented. However, bamboo flooring companies really have to grasp this opportunity, there are still some difficulties to break through.
The single color of bamboo flooring is a prohibition for many consumers, especially compared with the many colors of the laminate flooring. It is even thinner and the space is too small; the consumption habits formed by the wooden floor on the consumer are also a big resistance. How bamboo flooring enhances effective publicity when wood flooring is widely recognized, so that consumers can fully recognize bamboo flooring.
The development of the bamboo flooring industry can not only reduce the deforestation of a large number of forests, but also provide consumers with more choices and enrich people's lives. With the deepening of the concept of low-carbon environmental protection and the development of the bamboo flooring industry, bamboo flooring can achieve breakthroughs in the flooring market and become the mainstream of the flooring market.
