Quartz versus Granite: Which is better?

Both engineered quartz and granite are equally strong but quartz is more flexible than granite, which makes the former less likely to chip or crack. However, granite costs much less than engineered quartz but requires sealer in a periodic manner to maintain its durability. Since quartz is non-porous, it does not require sealing and provides a maintenance-free kitchen work surface for users. Hence, manufacturers in the U.S. engineered quartz surface market are increasing the availability of countertops that are stain-resistant to boost their uptake in the market.

Home improvement TV shows and real estate agents are always in the pry to introduce new materials in interior designing. This has led to the popularity of engineered quartz surfaces that are increasingly replacing granite. Manufacturers in the U.S. engineered quartz surface market are boosting their production levels, since customers consider quartz materials to be more sustainable as compared to granite.

High Shipping and Installation Costs of Natural Stone Boost Popularity of Engineered Quartz

Engineered quartz is one of the most common manufactured products in the manmade stone segment. Manmade quartz is much cheaper as compared to natural stone materials. Since natural stone supply is currently suffering, the cost of natural stone can be further aggravated due to additional shipping costs as per the distance of quarries from the market. In this way, manufacturers in the U.S. engineered quartz surface market are at an advantage when it comes to competition with natural stone products. Moreover, surface treatment and installation costs for natural stone is higher than that of engineered quartz.

Manmade quartz is being highly publicized for interior applications such as cabinet tops, door jambs, and for window sills. Quartz has become a fitting choice in bathrooms, wall backsplash, and vanity top applications. Manufacturers are increasing efforts to boost the availability of engineered quartz in different colors, patterns, and styles to mimic the aesthetics of natural stone products.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, manmade stone manufacturers are educating customers about various disinfection techniques to avoid exposure to the infection through contaminated surfaces. High cost of shipping and installation of natural stone products has led to increased uptake of engineered quartz products. However, exposure to silica in engineered quartz can lead to issues of lung transplant and increased mortality rate in workers. Hence, companies in the U.S. engineered quartz surface market should abide with regulations given by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to avoid adverse events in workers. Companies should adopt environment-responsible production practices to reduce VOC emissions in the environment.

Engineered Quartz Surface: Overview

  • Engineered quartz surface is a strong, durable, designer‐friendly, versatile, and low maintenance material. Thus, engineered quartz surface is an ideal material for kitchen. It is also used in other relevant applications in flooring, stairs and walls.
  • Engineered quartz surface is composed of approximately 93% quartz particles and 7% binding resins and additives. As a raw material, quartz is crystallized silicon dioxide (SiO2), which is usually white or transparent in color. It can also be found in various other shades if comes in contact with natural impurities during formation. It is found either in a pure state or present in other compounds. Quartz is used to make a wide range of products, outside the realm of engineered quartz surfaces, due to its hardness and resistance to acids.
  • Engineered quartz surface uses a scientifically calibrated mix of natural substances such as quartz grains with resins to create non-porous, super-strong materials that can be developed in different colors, patterns, textures, and finishes
  • Engineered quartz surface has become a highly popular choice for modern kitchens and bath spaces in residential and commercial projects across the globe
  • Engineered quartz surface for countertops are proprietary blends of quartz and resin that are fabricated into slabs. These can then be cut to desired sizes. Quartz is a hard material; thus, engineered quartz surface is also a highly durable material. Engineered quartz surface is ideal for usage in modern living.
  • Most engineered quartz surfaces are known by their brand names such as Maestro, Cambria, Caesarstone, and Silestone

Key Growth Drivers of U.S. Engineered Quartz Surface Market

  • The construction industry in the U.S. is expected to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period. Residential construction in the country is anticipated to experience slow but stable growth in the near future.
