Ceramic tiles are produced by an amalgamation of clay, sand, quartz and water. Due to their light weight along with anti-skid and anti-bacterial properties, these tiles have gained traction in different construction sectors around the globe.
Moreover, they are more durable, can withstand exposure to acidic or caustic chemicals and are resistant to high temperature as compared to their counterparts. These tiles are mostly used in hotels, laboratories and hospitals where hygiene is of utmost importance. Moreover, as there are different product variants available in the market, they are preferred over other flooring products like concrete and marble.
Ceramic tiles offer different style and glaze options in both wall and floor tiles, ranging from traditional to western. With inflating income levels, consumers now look for stylish and modern flooring options which is greatly influencing the market growth. Moreover, growing construction activities and rapid industrialization, especially in India, China, Brazil and various GCC countries, have carved a huge demand for ceramic tiles for flooring and other requirements.
Further, these tiles do not put enormous strain on the environment as they are manufactured using naturally-occurring minerals in an eco-friendly manner. In addition to this, progress in technology has led producers to further reduce the emission of harmful gases while manufacturing these tiles and also incorporate special equipment for selection, control and manipulation to launch them in various sizes, textures and shapes.
Looking forward, the market is anticipated to reach a value of $107.2 billion by 2024, projecting a CAGR of 7.2% during 2019-2024.
