This study analyzes the global market for engineered stone countertops (also called benchtops or worktops in some parts of the world), which includes engineered quartz, engineered marble, and polymer concrete. Demand is segmented in terms of:

  • market:
    • residential buildings, including new and remodeling applications in single-family detached houses, single-family attached houses (e.g., townhouses), apartment and condominium buildings with multiple dwelling units, and manufactured homes
    • nonresidential buildings, including new and remodeling applications (e.g., office, retail, lodging, institutional, and industrial buildings)
  • area of installation
    • kitchens
    • bathrooms
    • other areas (e.g., residential finished basements and dining rooms, hotel lobbies, retail customer service areas)

Engineered Stone Countertops

How will the COVID-19 coronavirus impact the global economy? The Freedonia Group is tracking recent developments and analyzing their impact in an easy to follow Economic Impact Tracker.

In this study, 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 included as part of the nonresidential market. This includes countertops used in applications such as recreational vehicles and boats, aircraft, cruise ships, and rail equipment.

Surfaces installed on tables, rolling utility carts, and other furniture are excluded from this study.

Historical data (2009, 2014, and 2019) and forecasts for 2024 and 2029 are provided for countertop demand by type, market, and room in square meters on a country-by-country basis. Global demand is also provided in dollars.

Demand is measured at the slab manufacturer level and prices for countertops are measured at the fabrication level.
