Ceramic Tiles Market Analysis

The Malaysia Ceramic Tiles Market size is expected to grow from USD 36.20 billion in 2023 to USD 45.48 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 4.67% during the forecast period (2023-2028).

The ceramic tiles market, which is one of the leading variants of the flooring market, has suffered several setbacks during 2020 due to the sudden COVID-19 pandemic. Malaysia, as one of the world's major producers of ceramic tiles, was one of the hardest hit by the virus outbreak, which resulted in a lack of finished tiles on the market. However, the construction sector, a major ceramic tile market, has been hit hard by COVID-19, resulting in revenue losses for the ceramic tile industry.

The Malaysian ceramic tiles market is expected to witness strong growth over the forecast period owing to factors such as the rising standard of living, increasing construction activity in the residential and commercial sectors, and growing urbanization. Furthermore, the number of households in the country is anticipated to increase by 2021, driving the demand for residential units, which will directly impact the ceramic tiles industry's growth in the country. The increasing number of commercial units in the future will also witness an increased demand for ceramic tiles.

The southern and central regions of Malaysia witness the highest sales of ceramic tiles in the country due to the high number of commercial and residential buildings located in these regions. The exports of Malaysian tiles are also increasing exponentially, with an increasing demand for wall and roof tiles. The companies are also constantly coming up with product variations in terms of designs, sizes, and variants, which are expected to further propel the demand for ceramic tiles in upcoming years.

Porcelain Tiles are the Dominant Category

Most newly constructed houses and commercial complexes use ceramic tiles for flooring due to the ease of installation and the availability of ceramic tiles in varied forms, based on the user's requirements. The prices of porcelain tiles are also relatively higher when compared with other ceramic tile categories, which causes a higher revenue generation by this segment. Porcelain tiles can be used for both indoor as well as outdoor applications and can be used on floors and exterior walls. Porcelain is the major choice in places where there is higher moisture content and increased foot traffic as they are slip-resistant in nature.
