Stone plastic flooring has been popular for decades in the United States, Europe, Japan, South Korea and other places, and has basically replaced laminate flooring. At present, the domestic stone-plastic floor is still a new thing. In recent years, the external sales of stone-plastic flooring have increased at an annual rate of 20%, and the internal sales have grown steadily at a rate of 10% per year.
The stone-plastic floor is synthesized by high-temperature calcination of PVC resin and stone powder, without the use of glue and other substances. Because its components are stone powder and resin, another major advantage of stone-plastic flooring is flame retardant. In addition, its super wear resistance is comparable to laminate flooring, with a service life of up to 10 years.
China is the most important producer of vinyl flooring, and there are many enterprises engaged in vinyl flooring production. More than 95% of the SPC and WPC are made in China.
China is one of the largest producers of vinyl flooring in the world, mainly supplying the Canadian and US markets, and flooring imported from China can be cheaper than competitors in the US and Europe.
Compared with Vietnam and other Southeast Asian countries, China has a complete industrial chain, with stable supply of color film, wear-resistant layers, UV and other raw materials, and guaranteed delivery.
Since 2015, due to the exposure of some quality problems, China suppliers’ sales of laminate flooring in the European and American markets plummeted. Flooring factories had to actively reverse the bad impression. It coincided with this period when SPC stone-plastic flooring suddenly turned overtaking and became popular in Europe, America, Southeast Asia, Japan and South Korea.

The best SPC flooring brands in the world are basically made in China, like the first-class Armstrong flooring, which has been producing commercial PVC flooring for many years, and more than half of them are produced in China.
So this thing, "Made in USA" is nothing more than an American brand that looks high-end and makes you spend more money.
Many flooring manufacturers, including MSI, Armstrong, CFL, Shaw, mostly source their flooring from China.
