Description

The UK Ceramic Tiles Market Report identifies the latest trends in the UK tiling industry, and provides details on the market landscape.

Current Landscape of the UK Ceramic Tiles Market

The ceramic tiles market recovery from the pandemic was very strong. However, as inflation and interest rates have risen, it is now deterring large ticket expenditures. This has been compounded in September 2022 by the major financial market turbulence threatening house moving activity with mortgage availability issues.

 

Ceramic Tiles Market Share and Key Industry Trends

The issues faced by the ceramic tiles market have not been purely based on the highly disruptive pandemic, Brexit also introduced and sustained challenges, particularly with importing since 90% of the UK market is supplied by imported products. The Ukraine conflict is contributing to the challenge of obtaining raw materials used for ceramic tiles.

The commercial ceramic tiles market will remain stronger than the DIY/retail ceramic tiles market, but both sectors will come under pressure during this period of financial uncertainty.

  • UK Ceramic tiles market size: The ceramic tiles market recovered from COVID-19 induced conditions and the estimated value of the market size rose to £423.8 in 2022.
  • UK ceramic tiles market share: Spain is the dominant importer of ceramic tiles to the IL, accounting for 32% of imports.

 

Future Trends in the UK Ceramic Tiles Market

Sluggish growth is expected in the wider economy, but interest rate reductions and lower inflation will return the housing RMI market to growth. When compounded with an element of pent-up demand expected in coming years, the ceramic tiles market will slowly recover alongside home and bathroom renovations, new housing and commercial building activity.

Expert Analysis from an Industrial Specialist

This report, written by Terry Leggett, a leading analyst in the Industrial sector, delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends in the ceramic tiles market and add expert context to the numbers.

The ceramic tiles market entered a period of very strong demand following the initial highly disruptive impact of COVID-19. Even after the initial pent-up demand, conditions remained favourable and demand was very strong. However, conditions in 2022 are changing strongly as the year progresses, and the prospects for 2023 and 2024 have deteriorated strongly for large sections of the market.”
