- Size, Trend, Share, Opportunity Analysis, and Forecast, 2014-2025
Global Kaolin and Metakaolin Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% from 2017 to 2025. Kaolin is an aluminum silicate derived from the clay mineral kaolinite. Metakaolin is the dehydroxylated form of kaolin. Metakaolin is a pozzolan, a material used in cement as an additive to enhance the uptake of calcium hydroxide thereby helping in increasing the compressive strength of cement. In addition, many advantages, such as reduction in pore size, increased durability, superior adhesion strength, enhanced water retention, reduced alkali-silica reaction (ASR), enhanced sulfate resistance, reduced chloride migration, lighter color, freeze/thaw resistance, acid resistance, reduction in CO2 emission, and reduced setting time are offered by metakaolin.
The global kaolin and metakaolin market is segmented based on the applications of kaolin, applications of metakaolin, and geography. Based on the applications of kaolin, the market is divided into paper, ceramics, paints, fiberglass, rubber, cement, and others. According to applications of metakaolin, the market is bifurcated into concrete, mortar, and others. Geographic breakdown and deep analysis of each of the aforesaid segments have resulted in the following regions: North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
The top players in the global kaolin and metakaolin market include Thiele Kaolin Company, Imerys S.A., I-Minerals Inc., Quarzwerke GmbH, SCR-Sibelco N.V., KaMin LLC, BASF SE, LB Minerals S.R.O.., Kaolin AD, and Ukrainian Kaolin Company.
