QUESTIONI see that you have stats posted for the total Ceramic Tile sales for floor coverings at almost $3 Billion. Does this include other forms of tile, and the sales for tile use in showers, walls, backsplashes and other placements? If not, what is the total sales for tile in those areas as well?
ANSWERANSWERS - In 2015 the ceramic tile consumption in USA was estimated at $3.1 billion dollars in wholesale dollars. It includes all types of applications. It includes porcelain tile, which is a type of ceramic tile.
It is hard to break down the percentage used for floor versus wall, because many floor tiles are used on walls.
