The Indian ceramics industry has grown exponentially over the past two years as the industry changes speed, including the continuous shift from unorganized to organized organization, shifting of product focus with a growing share of Glazed Vitrified Tile (GVT) and Polished Vitrified Tile (PGVT), growing global penetration of large slabs, implementation of best-in-class technology and innovation to manufacture products suitable for global markets. Transformational changes like GST, RERA, eway invoice and others have paved the way for the industry to move from an unorganized to an organization. This is of considerable importance as the industry has been dominated by an unorganized segment.
