ACIMAC research Dept/MECS anticipates to Ceramic World Review the key figures of the 9th edition of the annual report “World production and consumption of ceramic tiles”.
The Italian ceramic and brick machinery industry reported a 54% increase in turnover in the first half of 2021 compared to the first half of 2020 and a 12.8% increase over the same period in 2019.
Clear improvement in sales of ceramic machinery and equipment: according to the Mecs-Acimac research centre, the first quarter of 2021 closed with 33.3% growth in sales. Strong performance in both exports (+38%) and the Italian market (+27.3%)
The first signs of a recovery are emerging in 2021. Causes of concern include rising prices of raw materials, components and maritime freight transport.
