Kaolin Market Growth by Industry Size, Share, Revenue and Forecast Up to 2023

Market Overview

Kaolin is a type of clay that is derived from kaolinite mineral found in the earth’s crust by thermal weathering of feldspar. Kaolin, also known as china clay, is an odorless white to yellowish powder and exhibits various properties such as glossiness, brightness, abrasiveness, and viscosity.

The global kaolin market is primarily driven by the increasing demand for the product in the paper industry. About 40% of kaolin is used for filling and coating of paper. When mixed with cellulose fiber, it enhances the opacity, printability, texture, and color of the paper sheet. Kaolin is an excellent substitute of calcium carbonate as a filler due to its easy availability and competitive price. Furthermore, the use of kaolin in the production of chinaware and porcelainware is driving the market growth. Kaolin is used in the production of biodiesel through transesterification of vegetables, which is projected to propel the market growth further. The increasing environmental concerns and need for reduction of carbon emissions have influenced the use of biodiesel, which has augmented the market growth. Moreover, the product is identified as a food additive by the Food and Drug Administration, which is likely to offer a number of opportunity to the food & beverage industry. Favorable regulations from India Food Safety & Standards and EU Regulation 1169/2011 have created new opportunities and are expected to drive the global market over the assessment period 2017-2023. The increasing use of kaolin in pharmaceuticals and personal care products due to its absorptive capacity and antibacterial nature is fuelling the market demand positively.
