Parquet markets grew for the most part in first half

19.09.2017 − 

The positive performance delivered by most European parquet markets has continued in the second quarter after a slight growth in the first three months of this year. The Board of Directors of the FEP, which met on 1 September, believes that the industry is cur-rently benefiting from the good state of the construction sector throughout Europe.

In a market overview published on 11 September, the FEP provides information about developments in 13 countries. Only Spain, Finland, Norway and Switzerland delivered a stable performance, while the other nine countries registered growth.

The markets enjoying growth are Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland and Sweden. The Dutch market fared especially well, which the FEP said had achieved a 7% growth on the back of strong home building activity. Growth rates of 1-4% have been reported for the other markets.
