The global COVID-19 epidemic, along with the accompanying slowdown in economic activity and negative impact on production and demand, caused major challenges for manufacturers, particularly in the first and second quarters of 2020. Because international markets have in certain cases collapsed, ceramic tile imports have surged and exports from German firms have declined dramatically.​

Germany is one of the major markets for ceramic tiles in the European region. The country has the benefits of highly developed and most advanced ceramic products like roof tiles, bricks, sanitary ware, etc. The significant consumer expenditure on residential and housing construction is another factor that benefits the market growth. The booming prospects of the construction sector are attributed to state investments and low-interest rates. The rising demand for new residential infrastructures is the principal factor influencing the German ceramic tiles market growth. Germany is one of the major producers of kaolin in the European region.

In Germany, the ceramic tile market has grown in a similar way. Imports of tiles in 2020 climbed by 9.8%, totaling 113.6 million square meters. According to statistics, average import prices range from 4.00 to 13.85 euros per square meter. Frequently, larger volume was purchased at a lower price. Italy's imports remain stable at roughly 60.2 million square meters, followed by Turkey (14.7 million square meters), Spain (11.2 million square meters), Poland (11.2 million square meters), and the Czech Republic (7.5 million square meters).​ The increased imports can be explained by the fact that after their home market collapsed, manufacturers in other countries shifted to the stable German market. At the same time, this shift means that German manufacturers, who export around a third of their products, have lost a significant export market in some situations.​
