France is one of the largest markets in the European ceramic industry. The French ceramic market is majorly driven by thriving home-décor market of the country which employs ceramic products such as bricks and roof tiles, sanitaryware and tableware. The French market has been crowded by a majority of unorganized participants such as importers, traders and wholesalers. The French market is witnessing stiff competition from the developing countries including China and Brazil, who have been exporting cheap ceramic products in order to capitalize on the lower-segment of the French market. These products are relatively cheap and therefore provide price advantage and are thus greatly favored by customers looking for decent products at cheaper prices.

According to the research report, the sales revenue of France ceramic industry is projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.9% over the period of 2013-2018 and exceed USD 4.9 billion by 2018, majorly due to advent of favorable government policies which will motivate house renovation activities in France.

“The rising awareness amongst the customers related to the applications and quality in the country will aid the market of ceramic products in France in the near future. Additionally, it is expected that the industry will further develop with an increasing number of large sanitaryware, tableware and tiles manufacturers in the country”, according to the Research Associate, Ken Research.
