The Growth of Construction Industry

Ceramics are widely used in the construction industry that is growing at a steady pace all over the world, specifically in developing regions. The demand for construction in the housing as well as commercial sector is increasing because of growing economies, urbanization, per capita income, and spending, GDP growth, population expansion.

In addition, the fulfillment of the demand for better aesthetic design, and structural reliability and sustainability of buildings without a significant increase in prices has been achieved due to the effective use of ceramics. Sustained demand for ceramics from the construction sector will continue to remain a key driving force for the ceramics market across the globe.

Availability of Abundant Raw Material

The primary raw material in the production of ceramics is clay that consists of many minerals, with silica being the primary one. Clay and silica are obtained through external or natural sources, as well as through internal sources. Internal sources include recycling waste tiles and waste produced during the manufacture of tiles. Thus, the raw material for production is available in abundant quantities, which enhances the production of ceramics.

Clay is found in three raw forms: bentonite, fuller’s earth, and kaolin. The increase in clay production indicates an increased demand for clay across various purposes – of which ceramics and construction are the primary ones. Hence, the availability of clay in abundant quantities drives the ceramics market globally.
