Market Overview

Kaolin is a type of clay formed by thermal weathering of feldspar in the earth’s crust. Kaolin can be found naturally in kaolinite mineral or can be synthetically produced. Synthetic kaolin is highly used due to fewer impurities than the naturally available kaolin. Kaolin is used in various application such as manufacturing of paper, ceramics, fiberglass, construction, paints & coatings, cosmetics, and others. Among these, the paper segment accounts for a major share of the global market owing to the increasing demand for paper packaging in various end-use industries such as consumer goods, food & beverage, and others. Increasing demand for chinaware, tiles, and others is likely to propel the market growth. Moreover, kaolin is extensively used in concrete manufacturing to enhance its splitting tensile, compressive strength, and flexural strength, which is further driving the market growth. The increasing use of kaolin in cosmetic & personal care products due to their cleansing and exfoliating properties has augmented the market growth. It is also used for diarrhea treatment and as an absorbent along with pectin in the treatment of food poisoning or dysentery.
