Global Kaolin Industry Analysis

Kaolinite or kaolin clay are industrial minerals that are used as a raw material in ceramics, food additives, medicines, cosmetics and as a light diffusing element in white incandescent bulbs. In the paper industry, this is used as a paper coating that enhances the smoothness, printability, and gloss of the paper. Additionally, it also addresses the issues of paper opacity and ink receptivity on the paper. The growing influence of kaolin in the production of paper packaging is deemed to infuse profits in the kaolin market. In the construction industry, kaolin is used for manufacturing ceramic sanitary ware and tiles. Kaolin furnishes the products with improved gloss, plasticity, shrinkage, colour, and rigidity. The broadening demands for ceramic products in the construction and building industry and the increasing investments towards infrastructural development are the key factors for kaolin market growth. Adjacent to the construction sector, the paints and coatings industry is also an extensible employer of kaolin. Applying kaolin in paints and coatings articulation optimizes the paint’s properties such as opacity, dispersibility, gloss, pigment suspension, sheen control, and filling traits. Accumulating demands for paints and coatings in the construction and the automotive industry will nurture substantial profits in the global kaolin market.
