In 2017, modern rustic tiles and the products of large-size category are more hot-spotted and have entered the mainstream and their market share will be further enhanced.
Traditional products such as polished tiles, micro-crystal tiles and glazed tiles are still the major profitable products on the market and will still occupy a relatively high market share for a long period of time.
Buyers from the emerging markets like Southeast Asia and East Europe increased while many buyers from USA also choose CeramBath as the platform to purchase their target products.
