London, United Kingdom, 2007/01/26 - Report Buyer, the online destination for business intelligence for major industry sectors, has now added a new report on the growth and potential of the U.S. ceramic tile market to its collection.
“Ceramic Floor and Wall Tiles in the U.S.,” anticipates the U.S. ceramic tile market value will top $3 billion in 2010 due to strong growth in the residential and construction sectors.
The popularity of tiles as an affordable alternative to other floorings, such as hard wood, has increased as manufacturers continue to innovate with bolder colours, exotic patterns and unusual shapes, larger tiles, and tiles resembling natural materials, such as wood, stone, textiles, and even animal skins!
A boom in kitchen and bathroom renovation drove spending on ceramic floor and wall tiles to $23 billion in 2005. In addition, the non-residential construction sector also continues to add to the buoyancy of the market, which is expected to continue its growth pattern. However, it will continue to be extremely competitive as domestic manufacturers struggle to keep market share and margins in the face of growing pressures from low-cost imports.
This informative report contains comprehensive data on U.S. shipments, imports and exports, end-use markets, purchaser demographics, and the competitive environment. It identifies key issues and trends affecting the marketplace, and profiles major marketers along with manufacturer and retailer strategies.
“Ceramic Floor and Wall Tiles in the U.S.” is available in pdf format from Report Buyer.
