Iran's Sanitary Ware Market

July 15, 2017

Executive Summary

What the ceramic sanitary ware industry produces is one of the major interior fittings in all buildings across the world. Today the industry in question is making special headway thanks to technological advances. The ceramic sanitary ware sector, which has more to do with the appearance, has always been one of the key industries associated with the construction sector in Iran. It should be noted that the advances of the sanitary ware industry have helped eliminate some of the diseases the human body develops ergonomically [ergonomic hazards]. That’s why many countries across the globe, including Iran, are seeking to improve the quality of their sanitary ware products.   

European countries have placed a special focus on the sanitary ware industry. Some countries in Asia too have concentrated their efforts on the progress of this industry in recent years, but most Asian nations are importers of sanitary ware products.

This report takes an analytical look at the status, imports, and exports of the sanitary ware industry, which comprise the following:
1.    Bathtubs and showerheads.
2.    Bath, sink, and basin taps.
3.    Different types of hoses and pipes.
4.    Different types of ceramic sanitary ware such as western style toilets, squat toilets, toilet bowls, etc.
5.    Kitchen sinks, hand or wash basins, bathroom pedestal basins.
6.    Bathroom flooring (floor tiles).

It is worth mentioning that the exact volume of domestic sanitary ware production is unclear. However, it should be noted that Iran’s sanitary ware industry has failed to maintain its competitive market and is now in a slump due to sluggish demand in the housing sector.
