$ 1499




The global ceramic tiles market was worth around US$ 66 Billion in 2017, representing a CAGR of 10.4% during 2010-2017. The market is further projected to cross US$ 100 Billion by 2023, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.2% during 2018-2023. Ceramic tiles are thin slabs predominantly made of naturally occurring minerals like clay, silica sand, feldspar and dolomite. Compared to their counterparts, ceramic tiles are durable, provide substantial resistance to high temperature and can withstand exposure to caustic or acidic chemicals. Apart from this, owing to their lightweight, anti-skid and anti-bacterial properties, these tiles are preferred for use in hospitals, hotels, laboratories and pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities where hygiene is of prime importance. Further, due to their aesthetic appearance and availability of different product variants, ceramic tiles have emerged as a good alternative to hardwood and other flooring products like marble, concrete, etc.

Global Ceramic Tiles Market Drivers:

  • Ceramic tiles provide different glaze options and styles which range from traditional to western. With consumers seeking stylish and less expensive flooring options, the demand for ceramic tiles has significantly increased over the past few years.
  • Ceramic tiles manufacturing is an environment-friendly process as they are mostly composed of naturally occurring minerals. Recent technological advancements have also enabled the manufacturers to further reduce the emissions of carbon and other harmful gases during the production of ceramic tiles.
  • The arrival of new processes, such as incorporation of spray drying of clays, pressing and firing of tiles, etc., and special equipment for selection, manipulation and control, have enabled the manufacturers to produce ceramic tiles in different shapes, sizes and textures.
  • Rapid industrialization, rising urbanization rates and inflating per capita income, especially in the emerging economies such as China, India, Brazil and Russia, have resulted in the increasing construction in the residential, commercial and industrial sector, thereby, escalating the demand for flooring products like ceramic tiles.
