Fireclay tiles are tiles made of refractory clays known as fireclay. These refractory clays are widely used for manufacturing ceramics, tiles and firebricks. Tiles made of fireclay consist of materials such as fine-grained micas, quartz, and other organic substances such as sulfur. Hence, most of the materials in fireclay are recycled. Fireclay tiles are primarily used to withstand high temperatures and extreme chemical and thermal stresses. These tiles usually have low thermal conductivity with greater energy efficiency. Fireclay tiles are widely used for high temperature applications where other ceramics would melt. Major applications of fireclay tiles include residential, commercial and other applications that involve industrial manufacturing.
The global market for fireclay tiles is expected to exhibit significant growth on account of its superior thermal properties when compared to conventional clay tiles. Growing food industry is expected to boost the demand for fireclay tiles over the forecast period. Increasing demand for low thermal conductivity materials that are environmental friendly is also expected to have a positive influence on fireclay tiles demand in food processing industry. Growing awareness regarding fireclay tiles as a better alternative to similar materials is expected further boost the market growth. In addition, growth of global construction industry is expected to fuel the demand for fireclay tiles over the next several years. Moreover, abundant availability of raw materials is expected further fuel the market growth. Increasing technological innovations to develop better composites of fireclay tiles is expected to provide opportunities to market participants. However, volatile prices of raw materials are a major restraint to the market growth.
The market for fireclay tiles in Asia Pacific is expected to register significant growth. Increasing construction activities in emerging markets of India and China is expected to drive the market growth in this region. North America and Europe are expected to grow considerably on account of growing awareness regarding fireclay tiles in residential and commercial applications. Some of the major participants in the global fireclay tiles market include RAK Ceramics, Crossville Inc., Atlas Concorde, Fireclay Tile Inc., Porecelanosa Grupo, Gruppo Ceramiche Ricchetti, Mohawk Industries and Mulia Industrindo
