Global Kaolin Market

Global Kaolin Market- By Process (Water-Washed, Airfloat, Calcined, Delaminated, and Surface-Modified & Unprocessed), By End-Use Industry (Paper, Ceramic & Sanitarywares, Fiberglass, Paints & Coatings, Rubber, Plastics), and By Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East, & Africa)- Global forecast from 2020-2027.

Global Kaolin Market Overview:

Kaolin is a non-metallic mineral, a kind of clay mainly composed of the kaolinite clay mineral. The pure kaolin is white, soft, and delicate and has excellent physical and chemical properties such as plasticity and resistance. The kaolin majorly used in the papermaking industry, rubber, paint, and ceramic material.

Global Kaolin Market Insights

The global kaolin market expected to increase market value by USD 7.5 billion, fueling CAGR in the forecast period from 2020-2027. The market demand for kaolin is growing due to the rising demand for paper packaging, emerging ceramic tiles demand in the construction sector, and an increasing end-to-end commercial activity. It contributes to the growth of the global kaolin market.

Kaolin has excellent particle size, high whiteness, low iron and titanium content, etc. It is mainly used for catalyst carriers and chemical raw material. With the global economy slowly recovering and gradually stabilizing, the global demand for kaolin will grow slowly, primarily moving to high-end products. Affected by the rising costs of transportation, mining, fuel, and electricity, the prices of kaolin products, especially high-end products, will rise. The demand for kaolin for papermaking in the international market is relatively high. With the increase in the consumption of coated paper, this field will be the focus of competition for kaolin companies at home and abroad. The kaolin market for ceramics is still huge.

Moreover, the industry’s development situation will continue to increase its environmental protection efforts. A large number of small kaolin mines have shut down for rectification, and kaolin production capacity gradually concentrated in large-scale, high-quality mining areas.

The development direction of the kaolin industry is to develop intensive and comprehensive utilization of mineral resources, use of new technologies and new processes to optimize the mining and dressing process, and realize the full usage of resource recycling economy.

Besides, with the continuous integration of the kaolin industry, leading companies in the industry are expected to further grow bigger and stronger with their resource endowments and technological advantages.

Growth Driver

The deep processing technology is booming

With the continuous deepening of the research on kaolin and the development of the downstream industry’s demand structure to the mid-to-high end, the market’s demand for high-quality kaolin is higher than the overall market growth. Kaolin continues to carry out research and industrial application of deep processing technologies such as iron removal, grinding and ore blending, and improve the whiteness, fineness, and plasticity of kaolin mineral products and other physical and chemical indicators to enhance the quality of product stability. Thus, with the rising in-depth study of kaolin, the application field of kaolin continues to expand and has begun to be used in chemical catalysts, medicine, cosmetics, aerospace materials, and other areas.

Increased requirements for building green mines

Kaolin production enterprises have been relatively extensive, and the production process has caused severe damage to the mining and the surrounding environment. As people started paying more and more attention to environmental protection, in recent years, the government around the world has increasingly demanded green mining development. Therefore, more strict regulations on mining, beneficiation, smelting, the greening of mines, and supervision also strengthened. The environmental protection requirements of the process will be higher and higher, thus propelling the market share for the global kaolin market.

By Process Segmental Analysis

Based on the process, the global kaolin market segmented into Water-Washed, Airfloat, Calcined, Delaminated, and Surface-Modified & Unprocessed. The calcined segment estimated to dominate the maximum share of the global kaolin market. It is mainly due to calcined kaolin provides maximum brightness and opacity for the finished product. It is increasingly used by coatings, paints, paper, fiberglass, and rubber industries, which in turn has contributed to the high global demand for calcined kaolin.

By Application Segmental Analysis

Based on the application, the global kaolin market segmented into Paper, Ceramic & Sanitaryware’s, Fiberglass, Paints & Coatings, Rubber, Plastics. Paper segment dominating the largest market share in the global kaolin market. It is mainly due to the emerging kaolin use as a filler in paper production. It also improves various other properties of paper, and as a paint filler, kaolin has ink absorption and ink pigment inhibition, which in turn enhances the printability of paper. Moreover, kaolin in the paint and coating industry mainly used as a filling skeleton in the production of paint and coatings. Also, kaolin has excellent dispersion, and stable chemical properties, corrosion resistance, and fire resistance, as an additive in paint production can improve the adsorption capacity and covering ability. Therefore, kaolin properties will help in driving the market demand for the global kaolin market.

By Region Segmental Analysis

Based on geography, the global kaolin market segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa. The Asia Pacific is the world’s fastest-growing global kaolin market, accounting for the largest share. It is mainly due to the various stringent rules and regulations by the government regarding human health safety, emerging demand for paper packaging, and growing construction activities fueling market demand for the global kaolin market. Moreover, an increasing need for plastic, ceramic, rubber, and paints contributes to the use of kaolin in the construction industry.
