Overview of the Industrial Clay Market
Clay is a kind of soil that is a collection of a number of minerals as well as traces of organic matter and metal oxides. Minerals utilized in industrial purposes are known as industrial clays. Bentonite, palygorskite-sepiolite, and kaolin minerals, among others, are some of the common industrial clays. These minerals stay rigid and hard even at high temperatures. They are utilized in industries such as paints, ceramics, rubbers, refractories, catalysts, and cement, among others.
In terms of applications, the industrial clay market is segmented into sanitary ware, tableware, and medical applications, primarily endodontics. All three applications are enjoying steady growth at present, thanks to the booming construction industry and growing demand for cosmetic dentistry. In terms of the value chain of the market, they comprise industrial clay manufacturers, distribution channels, raw material suppliers, and end users such ceramics, paper mills, and paints, among others.
In terms of geography, the industrial clay market is segmented into four regions, namely North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World (RoW). Among these, Asia Pacific is expected to be one of the most swiftly developing markets for industrial clays owing to rapid development of numerous industrial processes in which these materials are utilized. Rising infrastructure activities worldwide are also expected to propel the demand for industrial clays.
Nevertheless, the threat of substitution of such minerals by other minerals such as bauxite and calcium carbonate, among others, may restrain the growth of the industrial clay market in the coming future. In addition, rising prices of these clays could also hamper their demand in the forthcoming future. Constant research and development on the utilization of these clays as bio-ceramics is predicted to establish new opportunities for the industrial clay market in the near future.
