Medium-size Tile is Getting Popular in Linyi

01 Jan 2019/CTW

At present, the three main product series of tile markets are big slabs, functional tiles and contemporary style tiles. Before they became popular in the market, it was marble tiles that dominated the market. However, the market of marble tiles also changed this year. As the enterprises in Foshan, Gaoan, Jiajiang, Neihuang, Zibo, Linyi, Faku, etc. launched the full body marble tiles in succession, the homogenization of marble tiles occured in early 2017. At the end of 2017, the price fell continually due to the price war, and this momentum remained the same in 2018. The head of a tile factory in Linyi signed, “In 2018, the price war of 800×800 (mm) full body marble tiles came so suddenly.”

The president of Fuyijia Ceramics You Jiabing said, “Nowadays, the prices of 800×800(mm) full body marble tiles are around RMB 20 for one piece in some production areas. If that continues in 2018, the prices of 800×800 (mm) marble tiles will definitely suffer larger shock, which will massively impact the market.”

Therefore, a new “niche” product appeared in the market. It was niche because its market is relatively small compared with that of functional tiles and contemporary style tiles. However, many dealers and OEMs in Linyi tended to choose 600×1200 (mm) floor tiles and 300×800 (mm) wall tiles, and full body medium-sized tiles with more specifications and a thickness ranging form 7-8 mm. With differentiation, these medium-sized tiles can bring profits for the tile dealers this year.

While You Jiabing said, Fuyijia Ceramics chose to produce the 600×1200 (mm) medium-sized tiles which are easier to be received in the market. “At present, the products of 900×1800 (mm) and above ones are not convenient for use of home space and transportation Considering the convenience of final home decoration and the market of big slabs, we finally chose to produce the 600×1200 (mm) medium-sized tiles.”

Unlike Fuyijia Ceramics, Jiabao Ceramics has begun to enrich its product system since 2017. It can be basically said that it has achieved the full range of categories and specifications as there are 900×1800 (mm), 600×1200 (mm) and below ones with three different thickness of 5.5 mm, 7.3 mm and 11.3 mm respectively, which have adopted the techniques like rustic style, terrazzo and marble texture.
