Global Kaolin Market, 2014-2024: By Properties Type (Hard Kaolin, Soft Kaolin, and Sandy Kaolin), By Technology (Water-Washed Kaolin and Calcined Kaolin), and By Application (Paper, Ceramics, Fillers, Paint, Rubber, Plastics, Refractories, Fiberglass, Cosmetics, and Others).
Kaolin is a mixture consisting principally of the mineral kaolinite and containing varying amounts of other minerals such as muscovite, quartz, feldspar, and anatase. It contains mainly the clay mineral kaolinite (Al2O3(SiO2)2(H2O)2) and a hydrous aluminosilicate. It appears as odorless white to yellowish or grayish powder. Kaoline is insoluble in water but darkens and develops an earthy odor when wet. Kaolin is a soft white clay that is an essential ingredient in the manufacture of china and porcelain.
Kaolin can be categories based on properties into hard kaolin, soft kaolin, and sandy kaolin. Based on technology it can be classified as water-washed kaolin and calcined kaolin. The water-washed process is widely used in the production of hydrous kaolin as the process helps to retain water in the clay. Water-washed is the most widely used method to process crude kaolin into finished kaolin products. Kaolin functions as an abrasive, absorbent, anticaking agent, bulking agent, and opacifying agent in cosmetic formulations. Kaolin widely use in the paper industry to fill and coat the surface of paper. Kaolin improves paper appearance, which is characterized by gloss, smoothness, brightness, and opacity. Kaolin is also found application as a filler in rubber, paint extender, filler in plastics, ceramics manufacture, ink, adhesives, insecticides, medicines, food additives, bleaching, adsorbents, cement, fertilizers, crayons, pencils, detergents, porcelain enamels, paste, foundries, linoleum, floor tiles, and textiles. Kaolin has wide are of end use industry application included paper, ceramics, fillers, paint, rubber, plastics, refractories, fiberglass, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.
The global kaolin research report sheds light on the market circumstances by carrying out primary and secondary research for more than 320 hours. As per the report, the global kaolin is growing at a fast pace and increasing its geographical footprint rapidly. The global kaolin is valued at US $ xxx million dollars in 2019 which is forecast to grow at CAGR of xx% and reach a massive US $ xxx million dollars by the end of 2024 in value.
The growth is comparatively higher in APAC region due to rising demand from end use industry. The major growth driver for kaolin is the huge demand from paper industry due to expansion of packing and printing industry. Also, high demand for ceramic tiles in the construction industry due to growing urbanization and population is propelling the growth of kaolin market in the region.
Kaolin enjoy wide usage across all major regions in the world including Europe, APAC, North America, Middle East, Africa, and South America. These regions serve large number of manufacturers and supplier and are hence responsible for the growth of kaolin globally. The companies that lead global market are, Imerys, Quarzwerke Gruppe, Thiele Kaolin Company, Sibelco, KaMin and CADAM, LB Minerals, Daleco Resources, Burgess, and Bright Industrial.
The research process includes the market segmentation of the global kaolin, identifying the growth determinants of every market segment and market forecasts. All the market forecasts are done in accordance with the inputs taken from the global kaolin industry experts from across the global industry.
