Food Industry, Pharmaceuticals, Cosmetics, and Others are Likely to Escalate the Growth

Bentonite is a commercial name for the naturally occurring clay that predominantly consists of montmorillonite.  Bentonite is formed from weathering volcanic ash. The bentonite has a high water absorption capacity that causes it to expand and swell. The bentonite has different types, depending upon the respective dominating elements including potassium, sodium, aluminum, and calcium. The swelling action or absorption of bentonite is depending on it’s the ion exchange capacity. The most common use of bentonite is in drilling fluids. The bentonite in the flush fluid lubricates and cools the cutting tools while protecting against corrosion.

Combinations of water and bentonite can perform a multitude of functions in the industry including drilling, binder, purification, absorbent, groundwater barrier and many others. Growing consumption of bentonite in industrial applications is the key factor that drives the growth of the bentonite clay market. 

In addition, the rapidly mounting demand of bentonite from various end-use industries such as construction, paper and pulp, Agriculture, Ceramics, Food industry, Pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and others are likely to escalate the growth of bentonite market. In agriculture, the Bentonite is used as an ion exchanger for soil improvement and conditioning. Bentonites play a vital role in the formation of wine, edible oils, and fats as it removes impurities in oils, and enhance clarification and protein stabilization.

Furthermore, Bentonite is significantly used in the metal casting and foundry applications. The rising metal casting and foundry applications coupled with the growing automotive industry are anticipated to boost the demand of the bentonite market. Moreover, the growing use of bentonite in the cosmetic, water treatment and personal care products is projected to create several growth opportunities for the bentonite market. The awareness about the wastewater treatment is rising the demand for bentonite is also increased as it has high adsorption capabilities, and they are easily available at low prices.
