    The Mexico City market of floors made with domestic wood was compared with that of floors made with imported wood to present a general panorama of this market. A questionnaire was formulated and applied in different previously selected enterprises. These companies manufacture, sell, or install wooden floors. The results of the analysis showed that the highest demand for floors corresponds to those made with American oak (Quercus rubra) with 35% of the market, followed by tzalam (Lysiloma bahamensis) and domestic oak (Quercus sp), each with a demand of 23%. The floors made of imported woods were more expensive than those made of domestic wood. The marketing channels are characterized by complicated networks of intermediaries. It is concluded that, in general, there is considerable demand for wooden floors in Mexico City’s metropolitan area. However, the market offers a small diversity of both domestic and imported species, and customer options are reduced.

    Keyworks: stave, parquet floor, wooden floors, wood block flat.
