Glass Tiles Market: Introduction

Glass tiles are one of the traditionally used as a construction material in the areas of partitions, door and window shields, facades as well as ceiling and flooring. Glass tiles are ideal in use for applications such as residential, commercial and industrial and others. Technological breakthrough in the tiles leaded glass tiles to increase popularity in recent years. There are different manufacturing process used for manufacturing glass tiles reforming glass to tiles. Reforming or manufacturing methods such as smalti, sintered, cast and fused which gives different color, size and shape for the end user.

Also, there are two prime methods used for surface treatments of the tiles which are slumping and etching. Glass tile is an organic product which we can get after the fusion to a rigid condition without any crystallization. Sodium and calcium oxides, silicon dioxides are the inorganic products by which glass tiles are made inorganic. Also, American National Standard Specifications for the Installation of Ceramic Tile (ANSI) has evaluated three new standards for the installation of tiles.

However, the performance of glass tiles which are installed is depends on bonding substrate and dimension stability of the underlying structure. Also, glass tiles possess a predominant advantages over ceramic tiles due to its better maintenance and high aesthetic qualities. Abundance of cheap raw material is may increase the production capacity in the manufacturing industries for fulfilling the customer requirement. However, fusibility and presence of the important components in the glass categorize the glass tiles for different applications.

Glass Tiles Market: Dynamics

Rapid growth in urbanization and the subsequent generation of construction projects in the real estate sector have been the key driving factors for the rise in global glass tiles market which is expected to augment in the upcoming years. Also, increasing civic infrastructure and commercial space such as airports, HORECA, shopping malls, hospitals, office and institutional buildings and others are expected to offer significant scope for usage of glass tiles thereby aiding in the market growth. Another factor which has been instrumental in the growth of glass tiles usage is due to in its aesthetics and inherent characteristics such as offering warmth and lighting under natural light thereby reducing the energy consumption. With the builders resorting towards conformance to LEED ratings, the glass tiles market growth is expected to be tremendously benefited in lieu of the same.

However, Glass tiles are relatively expensive when compared to other material types such as ceramics, polymer, metal and rubber. This factor can prompt the end users to switch to the substitute materials. Also, glass tiles are difficult to install, expert installing peoples are needed for the installation which yields extra cost for installation of the glass tiles. These factors may hinder the growth of the global glass tiles market substantially.

Advanced manufacturing methods for glass tiles manufacturing which might give competitive price offerings to the end users compared to other types could increase the growth of global glass tiles market. Emerging countries such as India, China, and Indonesia are the key destinations for the manufacturers to have an ample of opportunity to expand their sales and distribution network. As of instance, glasses which are recyclable with high purity and quality are in high demand from the end users.

A major scope of opportunity acting as value proposition for market participants of glass tiles market can arise targeting of refurbishment based projects and developing customized solutions for the end users.

COVID-19: Impact

With the Covid-19 pandemic harshly impacting on the construction sector in several prominent regional markets in the current year, resulting in stagnation of construction activities, retardation of materials supply especially in exports and import markets, the glass tiles market is also understood to be affected in the same tune for the 3 quarters of the present year. The rebound in the market growth of glass tiles is expected not to be sooner than the upcoming 4-6 quarters of the next fiscal with the resumption of construction sector activity.
