Ceramic Tiles Industry in India

Ceramic Tiles today have become an integral part of home improvement. It can make a huge difference to the way your interiors and outdoors look and express. The Indian tile industry, despite an overall slowdown of the economy continues to grow at a healthy 15% per annum. Investments in the last 5 years have aggregated over Rs. 5000 crores. The overall size of the Indian ceramic tile industry is approximately Rs 18,000 crore (FY12). The production during 2011-12 stood at approx. 600 million square meters.

The Indian tile industry is divided into organized and unorganized sector. The organized sector comprises of approximately 14 players. The current size of the organized sector is about Rs 7,200 Crores. The unorganized sector accounts for nearly 60% of the total industry bearing testimony of the growth potential of this sector.

India ranks in the top 3 list of countries in terms of tile production in the world. With proper planning and better quality control our exports (presently insignificant) contribution can significantly increase. The main product segments are the Wall tile, Floor tile, Vitrified tile and Industrial tile segments. The market shares (in value terms) are 20%, 23% 50%, and 7% respectively for Wall, Floor, Vitrified, and Industrial tiles. The tiles are available in a wide variety of designs, textures and surface effects. They cater to tastes as varied from rustics to contemporary marble designs in super glossy mirror finishes.

The industry also enjoys the unique distinction of being highly indigenous with an abundance of raw materials, technical skills, infrastructural facilities despite being fairly capital intensive. A total of over 5,50,000 people are employed in the sector. Out of this, 50,000 people are directly employed and 5,00,000 are indirectly associated.

A major change that took over the ceramic tiles industry, was the introduction of Digital printing technology for wall tiles and porcelain tiles. These new entrant product types are said to be the tiles of the future. Internationally these tiles are already the major sellers. These category of products account for almost 50% of total tile sales by value in this industry. These new products and the conventional wall & floor tiles have together made the organized industry grow to a formidable Rs. 7,200 crores industry. This coupled with a spate of expansions by many players make the industry look very promising in the future.

The Indian Industry has developed an export market although at the lower end, but this reality could change as Indian exports are rising at an accelerating growth annually. The top-end of the global export market is presently dominated by China (36.8%) and Italy (15.1%) (Source: Compiled using information from Corporate Catalyst India, ASCER, Ceramic World Review and other associations.)
