Latest trends in the U.S. Stone Industry (Shelby Township, MI)

According to Natural Stone Industry Magazine.The American market has seen a lot of growth in the last decade, the principal increase has been in the residential market, specially for granite counter tops. Over 3000 new small companies have entered the market to fabricate granite kitchen countertops and bathroom multicoloured or granites with movement. They appear to be the only two markets with the right colours appealing to home owners. Prices have dropped drastically by 40% for granite, making it the leading hard cover surface material in demand. Brazilian granite slabs have dropped in price almost 40% in the last three years, in part due to the devaluation of its currency.

China is increasing its sales to United States yearly at double digit figures and taking over the monument business (as are major producers of Indian granites), and branching into the commercial market such as hotels and restaurants, and now some into office buildings. They are specially strong in granite flooring and the Chinese market is looking to compete on all levels of production with any foreign producers to increase their percentage of this large market. It appears that in granite mostly China and India are competing heavily against each other to take orders at the lowest prices ever seen in this market, and prices have dropped by as much as 50% on Indian granites in the last decade. To give an example, 10 years ago Absolute Black granite tiles cost $5.00 per square foot and today the price is $2.50/SF for the same quality.
