Cersaie 2022: The Future of Bathroom Ceramic Design in the Face of the Ukraine War and Rising Raw Material Prices


The 39th edition of the Cersaie, the international exhibition of ceramic tile and bathroom furnishings, is set to take place in Bologna, Italy, from September 26 to 30, 2022. With the ongoing Ukraine war and the constant rise in raw material prices, the event is highly anticipated by industry players to showcase the latest trends and innovations in bathroom ceramic design. However, with the challenges faced by the industry, what can we expect from this year’s event?

The global ceramic tile industry has faced numerous challenges in the past year due to the Ukraine war, which has caused disruptions in the supply chain, as well as the rising cost of raw materials such as natural gas, which is a crucial component of ceramic tile production. Despite these challenges, the Cersaie exhibition remains a vital platform for industry players to showcase their latest products, technologies, and services.

One of the main trends that we can expect to see at this year’s event is the continued use of ceramic tiles and slabs that imitate natural stone and marble. This trend has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its ability to provide a luxurious look and feel to bathroom spaces without the high cost and maintenance of natural stone. However, some manufacturers will also showcase glass decorations for an added touch of elegance.

Apart from the exhibition, Cersaie 2022 will also feature a rich calendar of events, including press conferences, meetings on architecture and interior design under the “Costruire Abitare Pensare” (Building, Living, Thinking) theme, and technical and informational seminars in the “Città della Posa” (Tile Laying City). These events will provide opportunities for industry players to network, share knowledge and ideas, and learn about the latest industry developments.

Despite the challenges faced by the industry, the Cersaie exhibition remains a critical opportunity for manufacturers and designers to showcase their latest products and solutions to an international audience. With the ongoing supply chain disruptions and the rising cost of raw materials, the industry players will undoubtedly face challenges in meeting consumer demands and staying competitive. Nevertheless, the exhibition provides a unique opportunity for them to connect, share knowledge, and innovate to create the future of bathroom ceramic design.

The Cersaie 2022 exhibition promises to be an exciting event for the ceramic tile and bathroom furnishing industry, bringing together industry players from around the world to showcase their latest products, technologies, and services. With the ongoing Ukraine war and rising raw material prices, the exhibition will undoubtedly provide an opportunity for manufacturers to address these challenges and showcase their innovative solutions to an international audience. If you’re in the industry or are interested in the latest bathroom ceramic design trends, be sure to attend this year’s event in Bologna, Italy.
