About This Report


Revenue for the Ceramics Manufacturing industry has slowly inched upward over the past five years in line with the broader economic recovery, but growth has been limited by fierce import competition. Ceramic pottery, dinnerware and bathroom fixtures have increasingly been sourced from low-cost manufacturers abroad, expanding the importance to the industry of advanced ceramics used in electronics manufacturing. Although ceramics manufacturers have turned to exports for revenue, import penetration will continue to pose a major threat to the industry. As a result, the industry is expected to underperform the economy as a whole over the next five years, even as improved consumer incomes and confidence boost demand for its products.

This industry comprises establishments that primarily manufacture advanced ceramic materials and components, pottery and plumbing fixtures made of clay or other ceramic materials. Most commonly, products are porcelain, also called vitreous china. This industry does not include ceramic tiles, which are produced by the Clay Brick and Product Manufacturing industry (32712).

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
