Artificial Marble Market is projected to worth USD 45,306 Million by 2027, registering a 11.20% CAGR during the forecast period (2020-2027).
The market growth can be attributed to the rising consumption of artificial marble for furniture, kitchen countertops, walls, and floor applications. Most homebuyers now prefer to have artificial marble for its significant advantage over natural marbles, such as cost-efficiency, ability to remodel and shaped as per the user's preference, high durability, ease-of-maintenance, and cost-savings.
High-quality cultured marble resembles natural marble. Besides, rising artificial marble uses for aesthetic appeal drive the market growth. Moreover, the burgeoning construction industry worldwide escalates market demand.
The COVID-19 outbreak has severely affected the artificial marble industry, resulting in the closing down of several manufacturing facilities across the globe. It has created new and amplified existing challenges, grappling sector participants with the contractual implications of the lockdown. Apart from the contractual issues, COVID-19 initially added to the pipeline uncertainty and project funding issues.
Industry players faced significant hurdles in delivering on their strategies to respond to the shortage of skilled workers, elevated with the tightening of immigration restrictions due to COVID-19 and the impact of these restrictions on overseas specialist labor availability. Overall, Coronavirus has given the industry a shake-up to address some of the entrenched contractual positions that have historically been adopted by the market players.
They are trying to deliver on the significant project pipeline, fostering investments. However, COVID-19 level 4 restrictions have also created significant new opportunities. Not only have things changed, but there are plenty of opportunities for transformation and revitalization in the construction sector.

The governments also took up some unique initiatives to tackle the skills shortage, improve the skills of workforces, and increase the construction sector's productivity levels. Also, it is expected that the product demand in the end-use sector would pick up following the uplift of the lockdown in numerous countries.
The worldwide market appears fragmented due to the presence of several established industry players. Global vendors are increasingly facing fierce rivalry from each other and from local firms, who are growing aware of the regulations and suppliers in the industry. Matured players seek opportunities to deeply integrate across the extended value chain while focusing on the expansion of production facilities, R&D investments, and M&A activities to gain a larger competitive share.
