One is least durable and five the most. Ceramic and porcelain tile with high PEI ratings withstand high traffic nearly the same.
Porcelain tile is capable of withstanding a little higher foot traffic because it is denser. The greater density is due to the formation of finer clays under higher pressure and temperatures. Porcelain tile can be used outdoors, because it is more moisture resistant.
Ceramic tile can be used only indoors. Depending upon the tile variety, porcelain tile is sometimes more expensive than ceramic.
