This is the 12th edition of the UK Floor and Wall Tiles Market report featuring a comprehensive review of the floor and wall tiles market. Undergoing major changes in the last 2-3 years, the UK floor and wall tiles industry has seen significant growth in imports, which has led to an increasingly fragmented marketplace.

The UK floor and wall tiles market is a mature market that is dependent upon demand emulating from both the residential and the commercial sectors. Primary influences include housebuilding activity and commercial construction output, in addition to overall trends in the underlying economy, which will impact on business and consumer confidence levels.

The UK floor and wall tiles market recovered strongly in 2021, after pandemic restrictions were lifted, supported by pent-up demand in the residential RMI sector, also by the uplift in new housing and commercial construction activity.

Import penetration of floor and wall tiles in the UK saw a significant increase at this time and is currently estimated at around 75-80%. The small number of UK-based producers has meant that suppliers have increasingly sourced tiles from overseas to extend their ranges and to defend their market shares.

In 2022 the UK floor and wall tiles market continued to show good growth, albeit at a steadier pace. Market value has been influenced by the ongoing effects post pandemic but also by the inflated cost of imports, given the ongoing weakness of Sterling.

With the cost-of-living crisis and the challenges currently facing the UK economy, we anticipate that the overall UK floor and wall tiles market is likely to show only marginal improvement in the short term, followed by more positive annual growth rates from 2025 to the end of the forecast period.

The leading floor and wall tile manufacturers can be identified as Johnson Tiles (part of Norcros Group Holdings) and Porcelanosa UK. Other significant UK suppliers include Mandarin Stone, Original Style, Welsh Slate, Sarsen Stone, Armatile, Craven Dunhill & Co, Burlington Slate and H & E Smith.

Given the fragmented nature of this market, there are many other organisations involved in the supply or import of tiles to the UK. These include those companies that are based overseas but have subsidiaries in the UK. For example, RAK Ceramics UK, VitrA UK, Grespania UK and Villeroy & Boch UK.
