The research study covers the present scenario and growth prospects of the global industrial floor mats market for 2017-2021. The report also classifies the market into two end-user segments, including industrial ergonomic floor mats and industrial entrance floor mats.
With a wide range of benefits, the consumption of industrial floor mats is increasing in various manufacturing industries. Manufacturing industries involve tasks such as packaging, warehousing, and quality inspections that require workers to stand for prolonged periods. Another factor contributing to the increased consumption of mats is the demand for healthy and safe working environments due to various programs and workshops.

Technavio analysts highlight the following four factors that are contributing to the growth of the global industrial floor mats market:
Incorporation of multiple safety features in mats
Vendors offer industrial floor mats that increase productivity, improve hygiene and appearance, and decrease back and neck injuries. However, various other features of industrial floor mats such as slip and chemical resistance, anti-microbial, oil and grease resistance, and aesthetic appeal have enhanced product performance. These features have helped end-users select mats based on their requirement, which has influenced the market positively.
Sarah Haque, a lead research analyst at Technavio, says, “Anti-microbial and anti-fatigue mats include anti-microbial formulas that resist the growth of bacteria, fungus, and other harmful microorganisms. These mats are ideal for industrial kitchens where professionals work for long hours.”
Demand from manufacturing industry
To address the constant discomfort at work like swelling in the legs, lower back pain, and muscular fatigue, employers provide anti-fatigue mats to increase efficiency. These mats help in proper blood flow and offer bounce, which avoids the constriction of muscles. Manufacturing industries such as paper and textile mills, food processing plants, and automotive parts manufacturing require workers to stand for long periods of time.
Provision of lightweight industrial floor mats
“One of the challenges associated with industrial floor mats is their weight, which made them difficult to move and place. However, vendors in the market have resolved this issue by offering lightweight mats that are easy to place and move. Vendors invest in R&D to develop lightweight materials and designs that make mats maneuverable,” asserts Sarah.
Rising ergonomic concerns
Prolonged standing renders workers vulnerable to musculoskeletal disorders, which involves injuries or pain in the musculoskeletal system such as ligaments, nerves, joints, and tendons. The rising number of occupational injuries is forcing employers to build robust workplaces that are safe. Proper risk management and preventive solutions can help create safe workplaces. Rising workplace injuries have resulted in stringent workplace regulations, driving the consumption of industrial floor mats. Standing for prolonged period also reduces a worker's efficiency.
