Market Drivers: Technological Advancements in Electric Tile Cutter
Rising demand for ceramic tiles as preferred material for floors and wall coverings is expected to increase demand for electric tile cutters, which is compact, lightweight, and affordable, and is available in less mature markets. Therefore, due to increasing demand for compact and advanced tile cutters, manufacturers are adopting innovative technologies to replace the manual tile cutters in the market. For instance, porcelain tiles are the most popular tiles that are widely used in the market and it requires precise and well finished cut, which cannot be achieved using angle grinder or manual tile cutter. Therefore, manufacturers are focused on advancements in technologies by adding features such as multi-point braking system, dust collection technology, angular measurement features, and others for precise and angular cutting of tiles. Therefore, technological advancements in electric tile cutting machines is one of the major factors driving growth of the electric tile cutter market across the globe.
For instance, in December 2014, G.M.C. s.r.l., an Italy-based company, set up a CFT project, which is funded by European Union (EU). In this project, G.M.C implemented an innovative technology that replaces the conventional tile cutting machine that produces mud, water, and dust by ultrasound technology that eliminates the need for water, thereby saving energy and water.
