Increase in Raw Material Prices and CO2 emissions during ceramic tile production May Hamper Overall Ceramic Tiles Demand
- Major raw materials employed during the processing of ceramic tiles include feldspar, kaolin, bentonite, and silica sand. After the economic crisis of 2008, prices of these raw materials have been increasing across the world
- High consumption of these raw materials in other Application applications (especially glass, thermal and electric insulation, paints, refractories, and food packaging) has led to sharp increase in their prices after 2010. This is anticipated to affect the ceramic tiles market during the forecast period.
- The recent shift toward consumption of these raw materials in other industries (such as feldspar in the production of fiberglass) has led to shortage of raw material supply in the ceramic tiles market to a certain extent
- Presence of a large number of Applications of feldspar, clay, and industrial sand leads to higher demand for these materials. This, in turn, increases their prices
- Various production processes are employed in the processing of ceramic products such as tiles and sanitary ware
- Processing of raw materials such as clay and silica sand results in dust formation and emission of particulate matter and greenhouse gases. Particulate matter and greenhouse gases are emitted primarily during drying, firing, and machining operations during the manufacture of ceramic tiles.
- Emission of carbon dioxide during the manufacture of ceramic tiles is anticipated to hamper the ceramic tiles market during the forecast period
