German parquet production experiences 4.1% fall

14.05.2018 − 

Last year a total of 7.53m m² parquet to a value of €195.2m was produced in Germany. The production volume was thus 4.1% lower than the figure of the previous year whilst the production value declined by only 0.2%. These figures were published by the German Parquet Industry Federation (VDP) based on production statistics of the Federal Statistical Office. The only marginal decline in the production value, according to VDP, is due in the first place to price increases which manufacturers implemented in response to higher prices for raw materials.

Predominantly responsible for the decline in production volume over the entire year was the area of multi-layer parquet. The statistics indicate a decline of 4.3% to 6.98m m² compared to the preceding year for this type of parquet. The corresponding production value, at €180.3m, was nevertheless just marginally below the value of the previous year. German strip parquet production declined by 4.7% to 222,069m², although it was possible to increase the production value by 1.6% to €7.8m. In the area of mosaic parquet manufacturing, manufacturers secured a slight increase in terms of quantity to 323,964m² as well as in terms of value to €7.1m.
