The Iran Ceramic Tiles Market size is estimated at USD 1.44 billion in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 1.84 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 4.97% during the forecast period (2024-2029).

The COVID-19 pandemic significantly affected the construction sector, which is sensitive to economic cycles. It had a direct effect on the usage of ceramic tiles in construction. The pandemic negatively influenced the demand and production of ceramic tiles in Iran.

Iranian ceramic tiles are exported to the market of 48 countries. The most important are Iran's neighboring countries, such as Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Central Asian countries. It had the highest exports (74%) to Iraq, with about 131 million sq m. So the largest market for Iran's ceramic tile is limited to a few neighboring countries. The largest target markets for Iranian ceramic tiles are Iraq, Pakistan, and Afghanistan.

On the other hand, due to the severe recession in construction in the country, an important part of ceramic tiles production is in the warehouse of companies and depot sales agents. It caused unhealthy competition in the domestic and export sectors. In this way, some manufacturing companies reduced the price to sell products. Lowering the quality caused the products to deviate from the defined standards, which is considered a threat to the industry.

Also, most companies are operating with lower efficiency due to the recession compared to production capacity, and the consumption of ceramic tiles decreased due to economic conditions.

Iran Ceramic Tiles Market Trends

Rising Construction Activity is Driving the Market

Iran's construction sector is expected to grow by 2.5% in real terms in 2023, following annual growth of 1.8% in 2021. It is then expected to register an annual average growth of 3.6% during 2023-26, supported by government investments in the energy, oil and gas, petrochemicals, infrastructure, and industrial sector. Construction in Iran is expected to grow 8.4% in 2023, but that figure is contingent on the revival of the Iran nuclear deal in the first half of the year.

The sector's output will be supported by government expenditure under the 2022 budget announced in December 2021. The government released a budget of IRR 36.3 quadrillion (USD 111.69 billion), projecting IRR 9.3 quadrillion (USD 28.61 billion) in revenue and IRR 13.9 quadrillion (USD 42.76 billion) in spending. It will benefit the ceramic tiles market in Iran.
