USA, tile consumption continues to rocket

The American market continues to grow. Expected annual growth of 6% per year until 2010.

American consumption of ceramic tiles is expected to grow by 6% per year until 2010. This huge jump in volumes - according to figures released by Tiles International-Ceramic World Web - continues to fed by a steadily rising level of imports (+11.5% in 2003) and local production, also starting to increase its sales. Final data for 2004 showed an increase of 3.5%: that’s 64.4 million square metres! In 2004 internal consumption was 293.3 million m2 (+9.9% compared to 2003), the bulk of which was accounted for by floor tiles. Ceramic tile is now the third most popular flooring material in the USA, with a market share of 11.2% (in first place is carpet with 67.5% and vinyl with 13.8%). Italy maintains its leadership status in the medium-high quality import bracket, with square metre prices rising by 12%.
