Global Ceramic Tiles Market Overview

According to the MRFR analysis, The ceramic tiles market size was valued at USD 388.1 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 710.2 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 6.9% from 2022 to 2030.

Ceramic tiles are a mixture of clays and other natural materials, such as sand, quartz, and water. They are primarily used in houses, restaurants, offices, shops, and so on, as bathroom wall and kitchen floor surfaces. They are easy to fit, easy to clean, easy to maintain and are available at reasonable prices. Ceramics show good strength and can withstand high temperatures and acidic materials, but are brittle, and weak in tension and shearing. Applications include floor tiles, pipes, bricks, cookware, tableware, sanitary ware, pottery products, gas and fire radiants, kiln linings, glass and steel crucibles, knife blades, disc brakes in vehicles, watch cases, and biomedical implants. Ceramic tile is like porcelain tile, and while some companies use the terms interchangeably, they are actually very different. Ceramic tile is not as dense and has a higher absorption rate

COVID-19 Impact on the Global Ceramic Tiles Market:

The COVID-19 pandemic is having a substantial negative impact on the construction industry, although the legal repercussions differ from region to region and contract to contract. On the contractual side, there is more focus on the international consulting firms, which provide guidelines and standards such as FIDIC (International Federation of Consulting Engineers) and NEC. The current stage of the pandemic has made construction projects difficult to complete. The almost zero construction activity at project sites has further put a strain on several manufacturers and developers’ financial situation. The ceramic tiles market has been showing steady growth over the last few years in India. However, the sector was hit badly amid the COVID-19 pandemic as India’s GDP fell drastically in 2020.

Market Dynamics


  • Growing construction industry in developing countries to fuel market demand

  • Rising population and spending on home re-modeling will boost market demand

The Demand for the ceramic tile industry is driven by expanding construction sector across the regions. The growth of the construction industry in developing countries is one of the market drivers. The rise in investments made by the governments to build and renovate infrastructure for the public welfare of the nations.

The increasing population is followed by the increase in demand for the ceramic tiles market. Moreover, the population shift from rural to urban areas has elevated the growth rate even further. The governments of the different countries are associating with private firms to improve the infrastructure of the residential sector to provide housing to the growing population.


  • Stringent environmental regulations and raw material price volatility

Governmental regulations pertaining to the carbon emissions in the production of ceramic tiles market growth. Critical challenges that are affecting the market negatively include concerns regarding the environmental impact caused by the production of ceramic tiles. Natural gas is one of the major cost components of the tiles manufacturing and it accounts for nearly 25% of the sales revenue. Gas price is determined on the basis of some formula, and it varies from place to place. Thus, strict environmental regulations and laws as well as the price volatility will restrain the market growth.

  • Technological advancements and applications in upcoming construction projects

Manufacturers are focusing on technologically advanced and environment-friendly production of ceramic tiles. Market players are utilizing advanced technologies for product development and to offer alternative solutions. For instance, Pamesa Ceramica SL is manufacturing dry-pressed ceramic tiles in Spain, which have high water absorption property that will provide more strength and high density. The implementation of advanced digital printing is a key trend gaining popularity in the ceramic tiles market. Digital printing enables manufacturers to offer a wide variety of designs of ceramic tiles to their customers to make their experience unique and modernized.

Supply Chain Analysis

  • Common materials used to produce ceramic tiles include white clay, talc, sand, feldspar, illitic and kaolinitic clay, dolomite and calcite. The manufacturer will quarry and refine them. Also, they will bring the materials to the manufacturing plant and store them separately. Once the raw materials are processed, a number of steps take place to obtain the finished product. These steps include batching, mixing and grinding, spray-drying, forming, drying, glazing, and firing. Many of these steps are now accomplished using automated equipment.
