Morbi (Hindi : मोरबी) is the most promising ceramic tiles manufacturing hub of India, is a city located in Saurashtra region of Gujarat.
Here are the key points which makes this city the next big thing in international ceramic arena:
Home to more then 500 tiles manufacturing units spread within a strip of 30 kms x7 kms
Cumulative investment of approx Rs. 4000 Crore.
Manufactures almost 90% of total ceramic production in India.
Total installed capacity of 1.8 million Square Meter tiles per day.
Gives direct and indirect employment to over 600,000 people across India.
World's 2nd largest tiles manufacturing zone.
8-A National Highway between Morbi and Wankaner is flanked by all the industries related to tiles manufacturing. The road between Pipli & Jetpar village is bergeoning with many new digital tile plants. A large number of small-scale ceramic pottery manufacturing units are also located around Thangadh. Thus Wankaner, Thangadh and Morbi form the Ceramic triangle. These units also cater to export market (Middle East, African Countries, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, etc.). In the recent years Morbi has also became an important manufacturing outsourcing zone. Many leading ceramic companies like Kajaria ceramics, HR Johnson, Asian tiles and Somani Tiles are outsourcing their requirements from Morbi.
The region around Morbi (i.e. Wankaner, Dhuva, and Thangadh) is a virtually untapped ceramics zone. It is India's newest and most promising ceramics production hub with scores of innovative and enthusiastic tile and sanitary ware manufacturers, all of which represent key future sales targets for equipment, raw materials and service suppliers. The pace of production capacity growth in this region has been explosive and this trend is set to continue for the foreseeable future.
By installing industrial gas line in this zone GSPC has fueled the growth of Indian tiles production segment. Gas is the key cost driving factor in production process of ceramic and vitrified tiles. Gas line has ensured continuous supply of this important input.
The vicinity of the city with major ports (such as Kandla and Mundra) also lowers down the transportation costs and thus helps exporters of ceramics from the region. The region will surely be one of Asia's key driving forces over the next 10 years.
