The global fireclay tiles market is anticipated to grow moderately over the forecast period. 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 the food processing industry. Growing awareness regarding fireclay tiles as a better alternative to similar materials is expected to further boost the fireclay tiles 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 to further fuel 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 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.

The global construction industry once booming due to the residential and commercial construction in China and the U.S., has been affected by the suspension of the construction activities across the impacted economies. The construction industry in the U.S. is expected to take a major hit due to labor shortages and the lockdown imposed by the government during COVID-19, which is expected to be aggravated by the resulting supply chain issues and financing pressures due to the non-adherence to the completion times. The report will account for Covid19 as a key market contributor.
