2022-02-08 Comments

According to the WK-chem Research “Global Porcelain Slab Professional Survey Report 2022, Forecast to 2027”, Advanced digital printing is transforming the porcelain slabs market. With the help of digital printing, manufacturers are able to produce more sophisticated products that meet consumer requirements. The evolution of the printing technology has encouraged manufacturers to develop products with unique designs, patterns, and vibrant colors that meet aesthetic needs of end users. Such innovations are boosting the growth of the porcelain slab market. The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for the 2022-2027 period is projected to be 4.8% base on WK-chem Research regression analysis model.
Analysts’ Viewpoint:
“Porcelain is denser and therefore heavier to handle than other ceramic tiles. For this reason, it is generally more expensive. Being harder, it is more difficult to cut and drill and requires specialist tools, which can hamper fitting and increase costs. Hence, companies should gain expertise in technologies that deploy minimal installation steps and that cater to easy-to-remove attributes during repair works.” said Ben, Senior analyst, WK-chem Research.
Market insight:
Porcelain is made from fine clay and a mineral called kaolinite. Feldspar, silica, and mineral oxides often come naturally in the clay, improving strength and color. This mix of clay and minerals is heated at incredibly high temperatures. Porcelain is very dense and non-porous. This is what gives porcelain its water- and bacteria-resistances. Porcelain also resists staining, which is crucial for a countertop. Porcelain is 30% stronger than granite. Porcelain countertops are dense, and because of this, they can have greater strength than other popular materials, even without being as thick. Porcelain countertops better resist chipping, cracking, scratching, and general wear. Porcelain is also rated for exterior use. This gives it a huge advantage if you have areas on your porch or patio that are more exposed to heat, humidity, or even wind and rain. Moreover, easy installation, coupled with, the availability of ceramic tiles in a wide range of colors, texture, and dimensions, is anticipated to increase their popularity for wall and flooring applications. The construction industry has experienced a severe economic downturn in 2020 due to the outbreak of COVID-19. The global construction industry is facing challenges such as construction site closures, labor shortages and supply chain disruptions. In addition, the development of the epidemic has negatively affected the porcelain plate supply chain, disrupting growth in 2020.
Competition Landscape:
Some of the major players in the Porcelain Slab market are Daltile, Florim, Marazzi, Grupo Lamosa, Guangdong Winto Ceramics, Spinora Tiles and others. Manufacturers are focusing on expanding their production capacities for porcelain slabs in order to meet the demand from the building & construction sector.
Segmentation of Porcelain Slab Market:
Segmented by Type, the Porcelain Slab market is divided into Unglazed Type, Glazed Type. Aspects like slip-resistance, abrasion-resistance, and maintenance are very important to consider when choosing between unglazed and glazed porcelain slab. Unglazed slabs are thicker than glazed slabs, and due to their density, chemical-resistance, and lack of porosity, they are better suited to areas with lots of moisture, such as washrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms. In terms of safety, they are the better option. They are also more resistant to scratches, which makes them a great choice for areas with heavy foot traffic, such as outdoors, train stations, airport lobbies, and retail stores. Based on the application, the Porcelain Slab market is divided into Commercial and Residential. In terms of application, residential was a highly lucrative segment of the global porcelain slab market. This trend is likely to continue in the global porcelain slab market during the forecast period. Porcelain Slabs are widely employed in the residential sector. The segment is expected to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period. The new residential sector is anticipated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period. Revival of the building & construction industry is estimated to propel the demand for ceramic tiles in the globe during the forecast period.
Porcelain Slab Market: Regional Analysis
On the basis of Geography, the Porcelain Slab market is classified into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the world. In terms of volume, Asia Pacific constituted major share of the global porcelain slab market. This can be ascribed to extensive growth of the construction sector and technological advancements in the region. Demand for porcelain slab is high in China.
