The global ceramic tiles market size was USD 50.84 billion in 2020 and is projected to grow from USD 54.41 billion in 2021 to USD 77.82 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 5.2% from 2021-2028. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with products witnessing a negative demand shock across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a decline of 9.7% in 2020. The sudden rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

Ceramic tiles market growth is driven by the increase in construction activities combined with the growing investment by the countries in the development of infrastructure. The properties such as high durability, water-resistant, cracking resistance, and aesthetic appeal, are increasing the product demand. The preference for ceramic tiles during the renovation and restructuring of houses, shops, malls, and other facilities is surging the market globally. Furthermore, factors such as the rising population and increasing disposable income are supporting market growth.

COVID-19-Associated Disruptions to Obstruct Market Growth

The coronavirus outbreak has reduced global productivity and affected several economies around the world. The still nature of manufacturing facilities has led to a decrease in the production rate. Lockdowns, temporary shutdowns of non-essential industries, and declining demand from customers have resulted in a recession and created a significant impact on the ceramic tiles market. Construction activities and government infrastructure projects were put on hold due to the imposition of restrictions. The pandemic also impacted residential construction investments. As per Edi.cer (S.p.a.), investments in the residential construction sector in 2020 dropped by 10.3% compared to 2019.

Rising Demand for Digitally Printed Ceramic Tiles to Boost Market Growth

Digitally printed ceramic tiles are a recent trend in the market. Consumers prefer digitally printed tiles due to their intricate designs, which help in improving the aesthetic appeal. Additionally, the development and use of new technologies for printing designs on tiles have helped manufacturers to maintain uniformity in designs. Increased expenditure by consumers and the emerging need for innovative interior decor have led to a rise in the consumption of digitally printed tiles.

Rising Renovation and Replacement Activities to Accelerate Product Demand

Renovation and replacement activities due to the availability of disposable income at hand will propel the demand. Ceramic tiles are aesthetically advanced and provide functionality such as slip resistance, scratch resistance, and anti-bacterial properties. This makes them an ideal option as compared to their counterparts. Consumers from North American and European countries are spending hefty sums on improving the appearance of the wall and floors in their houses and office spaces. This is one of the major factors fueling the demand.


Growing Construction Industry in Developing Countries to Fuel Market Demand

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 development of public recreational spaces, schools, hospitals, and public transport has led to increasing product consumption. A rise in expenditure by the government to improve public places like train stations and airports to meet the premium standards has led to a rise in demand. This also enhances the visual appearance of the infrastructure. Furthermore, rapid industrialization activities and increasing construction of commercial buildings in developing countries will propel the during the forecast period.

Rising Population and Urbanization Will Boost Market Demand

The population has been growing exponentially for the past few years. The governments of different countries are associating with private firms to improve the infrastructure of the residential sector to provide housing to the growing population. The onset of the construction of smart cities has also increased the demand. Moreover, the rising need for multi-story residential buildings over private houses has increased product consumption per area of land, thereby boosting the ceramic tiles market.


Stringent Environmental Regulations to Restrict Market Growth

Critical challenges that are affecting the market negatively include concerns regarding the environmental impact caused by the production of ceramic tiles. This industry is one of the significant contributors to air pollution. Polluting elements such as suspended dust particles, smoke and unburnt particles from fuels, aerosol particles, and paint and glaze spray particles are released during product manufacturing. Regulations on the utilization of raw materials, post-industrial recycling, the use of anti-polluting manufacturing equipment, and the development of technologies to minimize harmful emissions have raised the production cost of these tiles. Hence, rising government regulations are expected to restrict market growth.
