Global porcelain tile market: Introduction of 3-D porcelain tiles and geometric tiles
The 3-D porcelain tiles are gaining popularity among interior designers and buyers. These tiles are manufactured using 3-D printing technology. The printing process is the same as a personal printer where the four main colors (blue, yellow, black, and brown) are combined to create several different designs on the porcelain tiles. The 3-D porcelain tiles are usually used in interior wall decorations.
“The manufacturers offer porcelain tiles of different shapes, sizes, and colors. During the forecast period, the hexagonal tiles are anticipated to make a huge impact on shower floor styling. Such geometric tiles can enhance the perception of space in small bathrooms and help in the formation of creative designs in larger bathrooms, spa areas, or makeup areas,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on construction.
