Initiatives by the public sectors of developing nations to improve access to sanitation are a major factor for the growth of the ceramic sanitary ware globally. Historically, the awareness regarding personal hygiene was low in developing nations. Therefore, the ceramic sanitary ware market had limited growth and development. However, due to the multiple initiatives taken by the governments of developing countries, the awareness about hygiene and proper sanitation is increasing. According to the latest data by the WHO, 45% of the global population used the safely managed sanitation service in 2017. This number is expected to increase in the coming years due to the rising public awareness, professional marketing of sanitation to those lacking the access, and initiative of the private sector in public sanitation. Moreover, the changing lifestyle and increasing purchasing power of the middle-class population are expected to drive the demand for the ceramic sanitary ware market between 2020 and 2025.
