Tiles made from ceramic materials are referred to as ceramic tiles and find extensive applications in the construction business. Based on application, ceramic tiles can be classified into floor tiles, wall tiles, industrial tiles, and vitrified or porcelain tiles. Ceramic tiles are lightweight, corrosion-resistant, durable, they show consistency in color and easy to maintain.
These properties make them a much preferred option for use in the construction industry, which is driving the Canada ceramic tiles market. Moreover, ceramic tiles are used to decorate homes. This can present several opportunities in the market. However, there is high volatility in the prices of raw material such as bentonite, feldspar, silica sand and kaolin. This is a main restraint likely to hinder the growth of the Canada ceramic tiles market. Other aspects such as emission of greenhouse gases and particulate matter while processing of ceramic tiles, especially during drying and machining operations, hamper the growth of the ceramic tiles market.

Ceramic is non-metallic, inorganic, and typically crystalline in nature. It is chemically composed of nitride or oxide or carbide materials. Sometimes, partially crystalline elements such as silicon, glass, and carbon are also considered as ceramics. Different ceramics are manufactured through specific processes, of which the common process is to heat and subsequently cool the material to a certain temperature. Naturally, ceramics are strong, brittle and hard in compression, but are weak in tension and shearing. These properties make ceramics resistant to harsh environments and caustic or acidic materials. Owing to these differentiating characteristics of ceramics, they find applications in a variety of products which are categorized as:
- Structural: This includes ceramic applications in roof and floor tiles, pipes, and bricks
- White ware: This includes ceramic applications in wall tiles, cookware, tableware, sanitary ware, pottery products, and more
- Refractory: This includes applications in gas and fire radiant, kiln linings, glass and steel crucibles, and so on
