Global Countertops

This report forecasts to 2024 global demand for countertops by material, market, and major world region in square meters. Material segments include: solid surface; laminate; granite; marble and other natural stone; engineered stone; porcelain slab and sintered stone; and other materials such as bamboo, concrete, and stainless steel. Reported markets encompass: residential and nonresidential. Major world regions include North America, Western Europe, Asia/Pacific, and all other regions.

To illustrate historical trends, world, material, market, and regional demand (including material and market segments) are provided for 2009, 2014, and 2019.

This report analyzes the global market for residential and nonresidential countertops (also called benchtops or worktops in some parts of the world), including kitchen, bathroom, and other (e.g., laundry and bar) countertops for the new construction and remodeling markets. In this report, countertops are defined as countertop surfaces, as well as edging and backsplash, but not countertop materials used as wall coverings.

Countertops used in applications other than residential and nonresidential buildings – such as in recreational vehicles, ships, and boats – are excluded. Surfaces installed on tables, rolling utility carts, and other furniture are also excluded from this report.

Integrated sinks were included in demand if they featured functional counter space on either side of the sink (only the counter space itself was included in the countertop estimate – the sink itself was excluded). If the integrated sink only featured a small edge or lip, the entire integrated sink was excluded.

Tile made from granite, marble, or other natural stones are included in the other materials category.

For purposes of this report, all engineered stone data is at the slab manufacturer's level.

Demand for countertops is measured at the installation level.

Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading companies, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
