Both domestic and global bathroom product markets enjoy strong growth prospects.
China has long been the world's largest ceramic tile producer and consumer, accounting for over40% of global production and consumption. Demand for sanitary products will further increasewith the rise of residents' indispensable income, accelerated urbanization drive, fast growth of realestate market and increasing demand for apartment renovation. The level of China's bathroomproduct market concentration is quite low. More resources are tilted to leading companies amidthe M&A boom. In the future, the industry profit margin will further increase.
