Furthermore, the rising adoption of reuse and recycling of building materials by key players is expected to propel market growth in the forthcoming years.

Product Insights

Mineral wool segment inclusive of fiberglass, cast mineral fiber, and wet felt led the product segment and accounted for about 42% of the revenue in 2020. This is attributed to the superior characteristics such as less weight, acoustic insulation, recyclability, and thermal insulation, leading to an increase in product usage in several end-use industries.

Tin, aluminum, and steel are the commonly incorporated metals in manufacturing, offering a clean, hi-tech, and crisp interior display, and are available in several colors. Ceiling tiles made of powder-coated metals offer better finishing along with great corrosion resistance, thus driving the demand over the forecast period.

Gypsum accounted for a major share in revenue in 2020 and is expected to witness a CAGR of 8.8% over the projected period. This is attributed to the numerous benefits provided by these tiles, such as easy installation, less weight on structure, and easy repair and maintenance. These tiles are widely used in several modern office complexes in the U.S. for aesthetical feature enhancement.

Rapidly increasing demand for different types of ceiling tiles is anticipated to increase the pressure on materials like gypsum, metals, and mineral wool. The market of ceiling tiles made up of other materials such as polycarbonate, wood, and PVC is expected to witness stabilized growth over the coming years, to decrease the utilization rate of commonly used materials.

Application Insights

Non-residential application led the ceiling tiles market and accounted for about 92% share in revenue in 2020. This is attributed to the rapidly rising construction activities of commercial buildings around the globe. Investments in several developing countries such as India, Brazil, and South Korea towards the development of the non-residential construction industry are expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period.

Ceiling tiles are widely used in several commercial places such as hospitality, healthcare, and retail in medical hallways, corridors, operation theatres, diagnostic centers, and clinics. These tiles are majorly used for highlighting of aesthetics of commercial and cultural buildings and for enhancing the thermal & acoustic insulation properties.

Global ceiling tiles market share, by application, 2020 (%)
