Innovation, quality and design are the cornerstones of DBL Ceramics’ innovative approach to establish better living standards for their customers
Ceramic Industry of Bangladesh
Only a decade ago, Bangladesh had to depend mostly on imported tiles but now rising domestic demand, triggered by increased construction of houses and their renovation or remodelling, has led to the boom of local tiles industry over the period.
Now, besides the local investors, some foreign investors have come into the scene, leading to further expansion of the market.
According to tile manufacturers, the domestic tiles market is expanding every year, which caters to almost 80% of local demand. If the sector is able to attract even more investment with infrastructural facilities, it will become an exporting target for the manufacturers in the region.
The population is always a power for any country if properly utilized. Bangladesh has reduced its population growth than before but still, it is increasing at a rate of 1% p.a. As a result, the market is on the up and it will stay this way for the next couple of decades according to specialists.
For this increasing population, we need more housing solutions. As a result, it is predictable that Bangladesh will have more demand for ceramic tiles in the coming future as well.
With that, there is another point to take note of. People are experiencing a change in lifestyle because of the increasing buying capacity. People used to consider ceramic tiles as luxurious products in Bangladesh not long before. But over the period of time, tiles have become a necessary element for almost every household for both urban and rural alike. Not that people are using generic tiles only but the market is getting ready for specially designed products like Technical Porcelain, Sugar Effect Tiles etc. DBL Ceramics has the privilege to say that they introduced these products in the Bangladeshi market for the first time.
