Overview of the Indian Ceramic and Glass Industry

Ceramic Industry

The ceramic industry in India came into existence about a century ago and has matured over time to form an industrial base. From traditional pottery making, the industry has evolved to find its place in the market for sophisticated insulators, electronic and electrical items. Over the years, the industry has been modernising through new innovations in product profile, quality and design to emerge as a modern, world-class industry, ready to take on global competition.

The Indian Ceramic Industry ranks at 8th position in the world and produces around 2.5% of global output. The industry provides employment to 550,000 people, of whom 50,000 are directly employed. Gujarat accounts for around 70 % of total ceramic production.

Glass Industry

Fuelled by growth in sectors like real estate, infrastructure, retail, automotive and food and beverages, the country's glass industry will acquire a market size worth 340 billion by 2015 from 225 billion at present. The organised glass industry as in 2013, employs 30 lakh people directly and provides indirect employment to 5 lakh people whereas the unorganised sector employs around 5-6 lakh people. About 75 per cent of the total glass industry is concentrated in Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. The highest employment in the glass industry is in Gujarat followed by Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh.
