Ceramic Industry in India

The ceramics industry in India is growing at a CAGR of 15%. Ceramic industry in India is more than 100 years old. It comprises mainly of ceramic tiles, sanitary ware, tableware and more recent the technical ceramics. The heavy clay industry in India offers a big market. However due to the unorganized characteristic of this sector it is not possible to ascertain the market size The future looks bright as many corrective measures are being taken by organized players in the industry.

The overall world production of ceramic tiles is around 11,913 million sq., and in this India's share is about 750 Million sq.

Considering all these aspects it can be easily said that the job profile of a Ceramic Technologist has a lot of growth prospects in the future.
