An engineered stone is also known by the name of agglomerated stone made up of composition of resin binder, quartz, quartzite, pigments and additive. An engineered stone is widely available on the surface of earth, occurs in natural form of silicate mineral with composed silicon oxide commonly known as quartz. This quartz is converted into engineered stone in the form of slab or blocks for end use applications. An engineered stone can be produced in various shape, texture and colours according to its required application and needs. It can be a fine or coarse in texture based on manufacturing process, and can also produce by combining it with glass or other material to give reflective or sparkling appearance. An engineered stone finds its use in various applications commonly indoors such as flooring, walls and in kitchen. Engineered stones are highly resistant to heat and scratch, and are highly durable thus widely being used in fireplace. Owing to high living of standard and luxurious lifestyle, the global market for engineered stone anticipated to grow at significant CAGR in near future.

Global Engineered Stone Market Dynamics

Development of attractive and aesthetic infrastructure is key driver for increasing usage of engineered stone across the globe. Due to its elegant appearance, an engineered stone has been popular choice for home application such as use in vanities, kitchen countertops, walls, flooring, etc. Engineered stones are resistant to bacterial growth and thus help in maintaining hygienic environment, which is prominent factor driving the global engineered stone market.

Rapid growth in construction and building industry is increasing the demand for engineered stone across the globe. Properties such as non- porous and durability makes engineered stones suitable for applications in hospital food facilities, canteen and commercial buildings. Engineered stones can be produced in large size and its non-porous nature allows it to be used in wet area such as washroom, swimming pool, shower and bath tub, etc. Engineered stones find its potential use in wide range of applications accelerating its growth and demand in the global market

Engineered stone Market Trends

Increase awareness about pollution mitigation is creating opportunities for the production of recyclable engineered stone which is expected to fuel the global market over the forecast period. Some products made by engineered stones such as porcelain sink, liquor bottles, wine bottles, beer bottles and perfume bottles, etc. consist of approximately up to 70% recyclable material allowing recycle of products. Also an eye capturing appearance and robustness of engineered stone increases its use in work of art which in turn is anticipated to create several growth opportunities in the global market.

Engineered Stone Market Restraints

The cost of the engineered stone is higher than other stone depending on its production process and the form of engineered stone can be a restraining factor for global engineered stone market. Also the engineered stones are vulnerable to staining by chemical products, cleaning products like acids and oil, etc.  Whereas, a stone known as Stonemark gives stainless surface even after coming in contact with chemical products, oil or cleaning products, etc. this stone is integrated with water solution to provide stain resistance property acting as a substitute for it.
