Driven by the construction industries of emerging countries, tile production increased at an average annual rate of 6.4% from 2005 to 2014, increasing from 7.1 to 12.4 billion sq.m of tiles. Similarly, consumption grew from 6.7 to 12.1 billion sq.m (average annual growth of 6.7% over the last decade).

This report provides a complete analysis of the performance of world ceramic tile manufacturers and their evolution during the last decade, from 2005 to 2014.

It comprises a portrait of the world ceramic industry in more than 75 countries.
Table and graphs report data on production, consumption and export volumes in aggregated areas and single countries as well.

The report provides a detailed analysis of geographical areas as well, and is a powerful integrated tool containing organised data that will help entrepreneurs and managers drawing up the best manufacturing and commercial strategies at company or group level.

The global figures for production, consumption and international trade of ceramic tiles have been increasing rapidly at a global level for a number of years, seemingly unaffected by the economic crisis and production trends in the various markets. However, examining the data in greater detail we find that the situation is more complex than might appear at first sight. In this report we firstly group the countries by geographical regions and then look in greater detail at the specific situations in each of the main countries operating in the international ceramic tile market.

While most tiles are produced for sale in nearby markets, we find that at least one tile in every ten is shipped to an area not in the immediate vicinity of the place of manufacture. We will see that China is not only the largest producer and consumer of ceramic tiles but is also the biggest exporter to more than 60 countries worldwide, although Italy and Spain retain their leading positions in a significant number of markets. We will discover that the regions with higher rates of urban population growth also display higher growth rates in tile consumption. We will see that Asia is the region in the world that consumes the largest volumes of tiles, although the highest growth rates are in African countries; that Italy is maintaining its market shares better than Turkey; and that the United States has undergone a profound change in the structure and origin of its imports over the course of a decade. This study sets out the data in a simple and clear fashion with the aim of providing the reader with a document that can be consulted immediately and simply as a work tool. It also provides an overview of the entire international sector and the outlook for present and future trends.
