According to a recent Emergen Research study, the global marble market will be worth USD 15.94 billion by 2027. The key factors driving the market include a shift in consumer lifestyle and marble’s heat and fire resistance. With the increased use and availability of explosives, as well as advancements in mechanical systems, marble can be easily shaped into a variety of shapes. This contributes to the overall appearance of end-use applications. Marble is now used to construct city halls, religious homes, and other structures.
The marble market has been slightly impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak because the majority of marble quarries and production units are located in coronavirus-affected countries. In addition, major marble manufacturers have their headquarters and primary subsidiaries in the impacted countries. The disruption caused by the COVID-19 outbreak has impacted the marble market’s supply chain due to low demand from the construction industry. The temporary halt in construction activities in many countries in the first half of 2020 has slowed the operation of the marble market. However, in response to the rapid demand from emerging economies such as China and India, marble manufacturers are offering their products for residential and commercial infrastructure development.
The marble market is highly fragmented, with even startups looking for value-add opportunities in the market landscape. Marble Innovation, a new marble contractor in Paola, Malta, is investing in environmentally friendly marble manufacturing machinery. Companies in the marble industry are investing in cutting-edge machinery that uses CNC (Computer Numerical Control). They are expanding its manufacturing capacity to produce facades, staircases, kitchen countertops, and shower trays, among other things. Manufacturers work with local distributors to expand their business through exports to hundreds of countries.
