Kaolin Market: Overview

Kaolin is a special type of clay which is found in the pure white form. The compound is also known as Chinese clay. The name kaolin is derived from a Cantonese word which means “high ridge”. High Ridge is a location to the hill in south-eastern part China where the clay was first discovered and utilized. In the 7th and 8th centuries, the people in China used kaolin to make porcelain. The key ingredient of kaolin is kaolinite. Kaolinite is the hydrous form of aluminum silicate which is formed through the decomposition of minerals such as feldspar.

\The white form of kaolin can either be naturally occurring or can be achieved after processing that removes mineral impurities and other color bearing chemical compounds. Paradoxically, most of the kaolin deposits are not found in China. Kaolin deposits are also found in the U.S.When compared to the other industrial clays, kaolin can be distinguished on the basis of its particle size and pure coloring. 

Kaolin is a specialty chemical which is experiencing the highest growth rate in developed as well as developing countries. Rapid industrialization activities followed by technological advancements in the emerging nations are going to propel the market growth during the projected span. The escalating popularity of the paper and ceramic industry is the key aspect that is going to boost the kaolin market trends. The emerging economies are facing a huge shift in terms of infrastructural growth. With the aid of the government and its initiatives, the construction sector is thriving.

This is because the change in consumer trends, as well as the lifestyle, has given impetus to the construction of smart cities & smart buildings across the region. In recent times, kaolin is being massively utilized in cement for construction activities as the product improves the durability of the cement and also makes it efflorescence-free. These factors are predicted to contribute towards the kaolin market growth over the forecast period.
