Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Ceramic Tiles Market in the UAE 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Ceramic Tiles Market in the UAE: Emirates Ceramics, Granitto Al Khaleej Ceramics and RAK Ceramics

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Al Anwar Ceramic, Aljawdah Ceramics, Al Maha Ceramics and Saudi Ceramic

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Demand for ceramic tiles used by construction contractors is increasing gradually. However, the market is largely dominated by international vendors, especially from China and Europe. Domestic vendors are putting in huge effort to form a firm foothold in the market. Though RAK Ceramics, which is the largest supplier of ceramic tiles in the world, is situated in the UAE, it is unable to fulfill domestic demand. The majority of the tiles manufactured by the company are exported worldwide. However, at present, the amount of tiles exported is gradually decreasing. Vendors are focusing on fulfilling domestic demand on priority and domestic construction contractors are also opting for these tiles. Thus, import of tiles is also receding.”

According to the report, the population of the UAE is rapidly increasing and is expected to reach 11 million by 2020. This increase in population is creating demand for residential, commercial, and infrastructure development in the country. Construction of large-scale infrastructure development projects such as airports, railways, highways, and mass transit systems is expected to increase during the forecast period to cater to the needs of the growing population. This is expected to create market opportunities for ceramic tiles, primarily in residential and commercial buildings, since ceramic tiles are durable, easy to maintain, and economically priced compared to marble and granite floorings.

Further, the report states that availability of low-cost imported tiles is negatively impacting the profit margins of domestic ceramic tiles manufacturers.
