 Brazilian ceramics on the rise

The Brazilian ceramic tile industry is a major player on the world market, ranking third in production and consumption. It is also the sixth largest exporter in the world, with sales to more than 110 countries on all continents.

Last year Brazil produced 792.9 million square meters and earned US$392 million from exports, with the USA as its main destination.  

Sustainable cladding

Brazilian ceramics are some of the greenest in the world, produced with respect for the environment and intelligent use of natural resources. The Brazilian production process has the lowest energy and gas consumption in the world and uses 30% less water than other major producers. Manufacturing waste is returned as raw material to the production line and water is treated and reused (closed cycle).


Ceramics of Brazil

Created in 2001, the sector project for the Brazilian ceramics industry, Ceramics of Brazil, is promoted by Anfacer (National Association of Manufacturers of Ceramics for Tiles, Sanitary Ware and Congeners) in partnership with ApexBrasil (Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency).

The aim is to promote Brazilian exports of ceramic tiles and sanitary ware, supporting the Brazilian ceramics industry in its efforts to enter the international market through promotion and participation in international fairs and events, commercial intelligence, among other specific actions.
