There is very large demand for most types of Jura limestone in tile form, with particular evidence on the retail market. Most German Jura limestone manufacturers have well-developed tiles production lines, which is in line with German tradition of high productivity and efficiency. Tiles are quicker to produce and there are less variables to control, which will make the whole production process smooth and efficient.
This tiles production expertise has been also stimulated from consistent large demand from the US market, which has been a reliable client for many years. In addition, several larger projects in places like the Middle East require finished tiles, which also highlights the importance of this finished product in the Jura limestone market.
The tiles export market is mostly dominated by the main types of Jura limestone: Jura Beige Light and Dark, and Jura Grey. These limestones have huge demand in tile form and demand is often larger than supply. In addition, there is a growing interest for more commercial materials like the Jura Cocktail that presents a certain uniformity and lower prices.
The main markets for the export of Jura limestone tiles are by far the USA and the United Kingdom. These two countries represent the bulk of Jura limestone tiles export, mostly for retail and some occasional final projects. In terms of direct tiles supply for larger projects, the Middle East dominate the market, with demand for low priced competitive tiles coming from Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and UAE.
