Bamboo flooring continues to evolve, benefiting from advancements in click installation technology and a strand-woven manufacturing process that has led to a range of new looks far different than the classic “horizontal” and “vertical” styles.

Additionally, following the recent preliminary investigation ruling by the U.S. International Trade Commission and the possibility of increased tariffs on engineered hardwood flooring imported from China, manufacturers of bamboo flooring products are positioned to increase their reach in the North American market.

Cork and bamboo flooring products are not included in the scope of the preliminary investigation. The next step of the review process is being handled by the U.S. Department of Commerce, including countervailing and antidumping duty investigations. At press time, the results of the countervailing duty determination were expected to be released last month, with the preliminary antidumping determination to be issued in mid-May.
