Why source ceramics from China?
Would you like to import exclusive tiles from China for your project to save half the cost? Tiles made in China are among the most popular in the world for their exceptional quality. With its materials and technology, cost-effective production solutions and huge potential domestic and regional markets, China has become a leading global tile manufacturer.
Many importers choose to import tiles from China because production costs in China are at least 50% lower than in other countries. This is because most countries in the world do not impose anti-dumping duties on Chinese tiles. Depending on the type of tile and the supplier, Chinese tile exporters are also entitled to a 13% tax rebate from the Chinese government.
Many importers choose to import tiles from China because the cost of production in China is at least 50% lower than elsewhere. The reason is that in most countries around the world, there are no anti-dumping duties on Chinese tiles.
The most common complaint from importers of tiles made in China is how to choose the best quality, competitively priced tile supplier in China. There are more than 3,000 tile suppliers in China, most of which produce about 25,000 square meters of tiles per day.

- Guangdong Province
- Fujian Province
- Shandong Province
