Overview of the Glass & Ceramics Sector in India
The ceramic industry in India is about 100 years old. Ceramic products are manufactured both by large and small enterprises with wide variance in type, size and standards. Though ceramic manufacturing units are spread across India, most of the units are concentrated in Morbi, Surendranagar and Khurja. Only a few units have state-of-the-art-technology, and manufacturing facilities for production of quality ceramic goods. All sub-segments of Indian ceramic industry, viz., tiles, sanitary ware, tableware, ornamental ware, etc. have both organized and unorganized players, with the latter having substantial share in production.
During 2008, India was the 24th largest ceramic trading nation in the world and accounted for a share of around 0.9% in total ceramics trade. During the period 2001 to 2008, India?s ceramics trade increased from US$ 143 million to US$ 738 million at a CAGR of 22.2%. The increase in trade was led by a rise in imports, which increased from US$ 60.9 million in 2001 to US$ 523.8 million in 2008, at a CAGR of 30.9%. India?s ceramic exports on the other hand increased at a CAGR of 12.8%, from US$ 82.3 million to US$ 214.5 million.
Currently, India?s ranking in world ceramic tile production stands at #3 (China and Brazil are the top 2) and is growing at an annual growth rate of 15% contributed largely by urbanization, a boom in the retail industry, and optimism in India?s economic outlook. Ceramic production today is a sizeable contribution to the country?s GDP (with a turnover of 18,000 crores) at 600 million sqmts p.a.
A total of over 5.5 lac people are employed in the sector. The ceramic sector makes an important contribution to the economy, housing sector, export earnings and employment of India. With the growth in the housing sector the demand of ceramics is expected to increase considering the competitiveness of Indian tiles in the international market.
