Vitrified Tiles: Introduction

  • Vitrified tiles are a mixture of quartz, feldspar, and sand. These tiles are produced by using the hydraulic pressing method, wherein the mixture is heated at a certain temperature to form a glass type mixture before converting it into tiles. These tiles are widely used for outdoor and indoor applications, as these are highly water resistant. Additionally, these have high frost resistance due to low water absorption capacity. These tiles have high flexural strength of 35N/mm2 and high breaking strength 700N. Vitrified tiles can be employed in wet areas, such as kitchens and bathrooms, as these are non-porous. These tiles are also utilized in the commercial sector, including corporate offices and hotels, due to their esthetic appeal and high durability. Vitrified tiles have a glossy and smooth texture; thus, they are easy to clean. 

Key Drivers and Restraints of Global Vitrified Tiles Market

  • Rise in demand for tiles with high esthetic appeal, durability, and ease of installation is driving the vitrified tiles market. Vitrified tiles are costlier than their counterparts such as ceramic tiles. Vitrified tiles also require expensive adhesives to maintain stability. This is likely to hamper the vitrified tiles market during the forecast period.
  • Emergence of advanced printing technologies, such as digital printing, 3D printing, water jet technology, and anti-microbial glaze technology, is expected to provide lucrative opportunities to the vitrified tiles market. For instance, digital printing technology aids in color enhancement of tiles, while anti-microbial tiles help reduce microbes on the surface of tiles.
  • Launch of absorbent materials, which are used to produce concrete materials, in the construction industry is creating new opportunities in terms of water control in concrete
  • Growth in population & urbanization and rise in disposable income of consumers are some of the factors that are boosting the global vitrified tiles market
