Natural Stone Branch of Italy Showing Sustained Strength in Export Part 1

Updated:2013-06-17 10:44:11

Italy’s natural stone branch shows sustained strength in exports as was calculated for 2012 by the Carrara-based Internazionale Marmi e Macchine (IMM): an increase by a strong 9.8% by value and 4.17% by tonnage as compared to 2011.

High-end, value-added products were also up: a positive development. But the up-side holds true for only one part of Italy’s stone branch: closer examination is needed to determine whether exports truly made up for recessive demand according to a press release.

All in all Italy exported natural stone valued at a total of 1,810,421,274 € (~ 2,362 billion US-$). This equaled 4,178.259 t by weight coming again close to the pre-financial-level. The basis of the analysis is figures of the Italian Bureau of Statistics Istat.

Among the palate of stone varieties, marble was the front runner: broken down to value-added products exports were up +17% and reached 815,221,000 € or 885.119 t (+6%). The average price per ton was 921 € in this category, up by +11.2%. Spreading across all types of stone included in the statistics the average value/ton was 221 € (previous year: 224 €); Granite was also up (+3.2% to 549 million €) but receded in tonnage (-2.35% or 599,000 t).
