Ceramic & Porcelain Tiles Market: Introduction
In terms of value, the global ceramic & porcelain tiles market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2019 to 2027. Ceramic tiles are important materials that are used in bulk by their single-largest end-user, i.e. the construction industry. Positive outlook for the construction industry is estimated to propel the global ceramic & porcelain tiles market in the next few years. Flooring is an integral part of residential and commercial structures. Flooring holds significance in applications ranging from residential houses and commercial institutions, such as hospitals, to transportation infrastructure such as airports and railway stations. Carpets, rugs, tiles, wood, and laminates are some of the key products used in the flooring industry. Tiles, especially ceramic and porcelain tiles are widely used products in flooring applications.
Increase in Prices of Raw Materials in Ceramic & Porcelain Tiles to Hamper Demand
Major raw materials employed during the manufacturing of ceramic tiles include feldspar, kaolin, bentonite, and silica sand. High consumption of raw materials in end-use applications other than ceramic tiles (especially glass, thermal and electric insulation, paints, refractories, and food packaging) has led to sharp increase in prices of raw materials since 2010. This is expected to adversely affect the global ceramic & porcelain tiles market during the forecast period. The presence of a wide range of end users of feldspar, clay, and industrial sand leads to high demand for these materials, which increases their prices. This is anticipated to hamper the global ceramic & porcelain tiles market in the near future.
Prices of ceramic and porcelain tiles are determined by end users. Suppliers are expected to reduce their margins in order to sustain in the competition. Similarly, prices of ceramic and porcelain tiles are volatile owing to dynamism of the global economy and trade policies. This makes it difficult for suppliers to adopt a single pricing model.
