Decorative Tile

Gains will be driven by a rebound in new housing, office and commercial construction and the increasing use of tile as a durable, low maintenance flooring alternative to carpets and rugs.

US demand to rise 5.1% annually through 2017

US demand for decorative tile is forecast to rise 5.1 percent per year through 2017, reaching 3.0 billion square feet, valued at $5.3 billion. Gains will be driven by a rebound in building construction spending. The new housing market will see double-digit annual demand growth as housing completions rise from their low 2012 base. Nonresidential demand will also rise at a robust pace, spurred by strong growth in office and commercial construction spending and increasing use of tile as a durable, low maintenance flooring alternative to carpets and rugs.

Dominant ceramic tile to lose market share

Ceramic tile accounted for the largest share of decorative tile demand in 2012 and is expected to remain the leading product type in 2017. Ceramic tile demand is supported by its low cost, and perception as a modern, fashionable surfacing material. However, ceramic tile will lose market share going forward to stone and porcelain tile, which are seen as having better aesthetic and performance properties

Natural stone to overtake porcelain as second largest

Natural stone tiles are expected to overtake porcelain tiles as the second largest type in area demand terms by 2017. Gains will be spurred by strong residential demand for natural stone flooring. Homeowners are increasingly opting for granite tile flooring because granite is an attractive, durable material that improves the appearance of a room and increases home values. Moreover, natural stone flooring can also be installed in such structures as hotels, high end resorts, and shopping malls to create more aesthetically pleasing interiors.

Porcelain tile demand will advance over seven percent per annum through 2017, gaining share in both residential and nonresidential markets. Porcelain tiles are durable, slip-resistant, and can be made to resemble such materials as hardwood and natural stone, but at a lower cost. Homeowners can install porcelain tile as an inexpensive way to enhance the appearance of their homes. Gains will also come from increasing use of the product in nonresidential structures, where unglazed porcelain tile finds use in areas with heavy foot traffic, such as shopping malls, office buildings, and health care and educational facilities. However, more rapid growth will be checked by competition from natural stone flooring, particularly in the residential market, as more affluent homeowners opt for stone because it connotes luxury.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the 2.3 billion square foot US decorative tile industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2002, 2007 and 2012, and forecasts for 2017 and 2022 by product (e.g., ceramic tile, porcelain tile, stone tile, tile adhesives), application (e.g., flooring, wall coverings, countertops), and market (residential, nonresidential, nonbuilding and transportation).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 35 industry players such as Mohawk Industries, Grupo Lamosa, and Internacional de Ceramica.
