Well-known Morbi ceramic industry is going to strengthen its production capacity. According to industry sources approximately 40 new units are going to start within one year. Since decline in Chinese made ceramics in the local market, the entrepreneurs are encouraged to venture in this industry. This will bring fresh investment of more than Rs.250 crore.

The industry has recently faced stiff situation because of global recession. This also affected the total production of this region. However, now the Morbi ceramic industry is reporting good figures.

“Building construction has once again shown boom in the last three months. And as it’s effect the demand of wall, floor and vitrified tiles has also increased subsequently. According to the information we have currently there are 40 new units under pipeline” Said Ramjibhai Detroja, secretory, Morbi – Dhuva Glazed Tiles Association

an important ceramic production hub of India.

But as there is going to be a boom in tiles segment in future, we already sold our sanitaryware unit and are establishing the unit of wall tiles “said Shreyash Patel, M.D. , Morbi based Claris Ceramics Private Limited.
