Report Description

Zeolites Market
Zeolites Market

Global Zeolites Market is expected to grow at a significant rate of around 4% during the forecast period. Zeolites are microporous, three-dimensional crystalline solids of aluminum silicate. Zeolites have small openings of fixed size in them which allow small molecules to pass through them easily, but larger molecules cannot pass through them; that is why they are sometimes called molecular sieves. In addition, Zeolite is a crystalline solid structure composed of silicon, aluminum, and oxygen. They are microporous, crystalline-hydrated aluminosilicates, obtained by hydrothermal crystallization of aluminosilicate gels. Their porous structure makes them suitable for use in detergents, petrochemistry, nuclear technology, refrigeration technology, concrete, and others.

BASF SE, Honeywell International Inc., Tosoh Corporation, Arkema Group, Zeochem AG, Clariant AG, Zeolyst International, W.R. Grace & Co., KNT Group, Gordes Zeolite are some of the key players in the market. Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate customers with hi-tech and innovative products/technologies.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst product type, natural product type category is expected to witness a higher CAGR during the forecast period”

Based on product type, the market is segmented into natural and synthetic. The natural product type category is expected to witness a higher CAGR during the forecast period owing to its growing usage in construction & building materials, soil remediation, animal feed, wastewater treatment, and many others. In addition, natural zeolites can hold about 50.0% of their weight in liquids without swelling. Due to their excellent absorption capacity, they are added to many pet litter and are also used in soil remediation. It is also used in water treatment applications where ion exchange properties play an important role in radioactive waste treatment from nuclear reactors, gas refining, oil production, and wastewater treatment.

“Amongst application, adsorbents category is expected to showcase significant growth over the forecast period”

Based on application, the zeolites market has been classified into adsorbents, catalysts, detergent builders, construction & building materials, animal feed, wastewater treatment, soil remediation, and others. The adsorbents category is expected to witness significant adoption of zeolites during the forecast period. This is mainly due to the rising demand from industrial gas drying applications. Since synthetic zeolites are used for the removal or separation of H2O, CO2, and SO2 from low-grade natural gas or noble gases or formaldehyde from natural gas streams. This is further used in liquid or gas phase separation processes as adsorbent. Thus, the demand for adsorbents is increasing in various industries.

“APAC held a significant share in the market”

APAC is anticipated to grow at a substantial CAGR during the forecast period. This is mainly due to the high demand from China, Japan, Indonesia, and India. The growth of the Asia-Pacific zeolite market is attributed to the region’s rapid urbanization and ever-changing lifestyles. In addition, the growing demand for automobiles in the region has led to high consumption of petroleum products such as gasoline and diesel, thus increasing the demand for fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) catalysts. Furthermore, zeolites are increasingly used in the production of lightweight building materials and are an important factor in the production of asphalt concrete.
