Indian Ceramics Asia provides a welcome opportunity to meet up with customers, most of whom are making substantial new investments aimed at increasing production capacity and productivity, but most of all aimed at reducing energy and production costs while increasing efficiency.
The Indian ceramic industry holds the potential to become the largest producer in the world, as the industry is looking to almost double its turnover by 2024. In the last couple of years, the Indian ceramic tile industry has further strengthened its position as a global tile player and as the world’s second-largest manufacturer, consumer and exporter behind China.
In 2021, India’s tile producers chalked up another astonishing success with total exports of 483 million sqm (up 19% in 2020), an achievement that has helped the industry recover more rapidly from the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
To talk of “double-digit” growth is a significant understatement. When in 2014 India’s exports passed the 100 million square metre mark for the first time, it was the result of an 85% upturn, followed by increases of 31% in 2015, 39% in 2016, 23% in 2017, 20% in 2018, 31% in 2019 and 21% in 2020. Exports also continued to grow in 2022.
