Taowei News As the largest country with the largest population in Africa and the largest economy in Africa, Nigeria attracts more and more foreigners to do business with its huge market potential and many market opportunities, despite the many problems it is facing. Among them, Agric Market, an important distribution center of bathroom building materials in the north of Lagos, Nigeria, gathers a large number of bathroom building materials, such as tiles, faucets, basins and toilets and other products.
Over the past few years, new products such as smart toilets are gradually gaining a tendency to be in high demand among the elite population. The high disposable income of local consumers, growing demand for luxury and high quality home furnishings, and increasing popularity of smart home furnishings have given a positive impetus to the growth of the bathroom market.
Also, the bathroom market is expanding with the increasing demand for bathroom products in terms of design, color, brand, and size. Coupled with the increase in infrastructural facilities in Nigeria, growing awareness of health and hygiene and abundant availability of raw materials are driving the growth of the market for products such as toilets and bathtubs. In addition, factors such as rapid urbanization, branded products, and strong demand for substitution are also contributing to the growth of the sanitary ware market in Nigeria.

CDK Integrated Industries Ltd, a local manufacturer of sanitary tiles in Nigeria, has significantly reduced its production capacity due to the lack of basic manufacturing facility infrastructure and production environment in the country. However, the lack of infrastructure has made it impossible to produce products at low cost. This has led to Nigeria’s major reliance on imported products. Most of the ceramic products on the local online home website newcoolmex are CDK.
