1.Quartzite market size and future development trends
In 2005, China ’s artificial stone market capacity was 200 billion yuan. Conservatively estimated that the current quartz stone products account for 3%, there is a market space of 6 billion yuan. As the product technology and market continue to mature, the quartz stone market is gradually activated and consumer demand keep growing. In terms of market channels, all brands adopt self-built channels and wholesale. The current quartz stone product market is similar to the stone market 20 years ago and the artificial stone market 10 years ago. The situation of quartz stone products will be 300% per year in the next 3 years. The speed is increasing and there is huge market space.2. Analysis of the demand for quartzite on the countertop materials at home and abroad
At present, the main countertop materials at home and abroad are natural stone, artificial stone, quartz stone and so on. Among them, quartz stone countertops are most favored by the market for their quality.A. natural stone
Natural stone is divided into marble, granite, microcrystalline stone, jade and other natural stones with natural texture, which is more beautiful, but natural marble has porosity, easy to deposit grease, and natural marble is brittle, and can not be made more than 1 meter countertop Tables made of natural marble have seams, and these seams are also prone to accumulate dirt and affect hygiene. Natural stone is hard, and it is corrosion-resistant, abrasion-resistant, waterproof, fireproof, and easy to clean. It is a traditional countertop material. However, the length of natural stone cannot be too long, sometimes it is difficult to meet the length of the kitchen countertop, and granite has strong radioactivity. If it exceeds the standard, it will cause harm to the human body; Although marble looks strong and durable, it is actually resistant to dirt It is not strong. If dripped with a heavy-colored liquid such as soy sauce, it will easily penetrate into the texture and be difficult to clean. Natural stone countertops once accounted for less than 80% of the total market. With people's pursuit of quality of life and health, natural stone countertops can no longer meet people's needs, and the market share has dropped sharply to only about 20%.B. Artificial stone countertops
Some additives are made by vacuum casting or compression molding. Its main features are colorful, no pores on the surface, strong toughness, stain resistance, impact resistance, wear resistance, easy to clean. Its artificial stone, such as deformation, adhesion, turning, is a polymer composite material, which is unique in the treatment of natural ore powder, resin, pigment and parts; because the surface has no pores, oil and water stains are not easy to penetrate into it, so it is resistant to Strong staining power; seamless bonding at any length. The two adhesives of the same material can be ground together after grinding. But artificial stone is easy to be scratched, its hardness is not enough, and its antibacterial and environmental protection are not ideal.C. quartz stone countertop
Quartzite is made from quartzite crystals, resins and trace pigments under vacuum conditions by using isomerization polymerization technology to make large-size plates. Its quartz crystal body is as high as 93%, which makes the texture more rigid and compact. Decorative materials can not match the characteristics of wear resistance, pressure resistance, high temperature resistance, corrosion resistance, and anti-penetration. The rich combination of colors gives it the texture of natural stone and a beautiful surface gloss. Quartz countertops have unparalleled advantages over other materials, and have been sought after by people as soon as they are produced, but due to the slow maturity of technology, some domestic businesses have been able to produce quartz countertops, but the production capacity is not high, so the price of quartz countertops is also Extraordinarily expensive.
