Research and Markets Logo

The kaolin market is estimated to be USD 4.56 Billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 5.70 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 4.6% from 2017 to 2022.

The increasing demand for kaolin from various end-use industries, such as paper, ceramics, fiberglass, paints & coatings, rubber, and plastics, is expected to drive the growth of the kaolin market during the forecast period. Kaolin distinguishes itself from other industrial clays, owing to its fine particle size, increased brightness, and pure coloring. It is used in the development of ceramics as well as a surface coating pigment on high-quality glossy paper.

Based on grade, the calcined segment of the kaolin market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Calcined kaolin is used in the development of paints & coatings, ceramics, and engineered plastic cables. Emerging countries in the Asia Pacific and South American regions, such as China, India, and Brazil, are considered as key markets for calcined kaolin.

Based on end-use industry, the paper segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the kaolin market in 2017, in terms of value. Ceramics is the second-largest end-use industry segment of the kaolin market. Kaolin improves various properties of paper, such as ink absorption and ink pigment holdout, low linting tendency, and roughness, which, in turn, enhance the printability of paper. Thus, the increasing use of kaolin in paper production is projected to drive the growth of the paper end-use industry segment.
