Zeolite Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2017-2022



Zeolites are solid minerals composed of aluminium, silicon and oxygen which form a framework of cavities in between that can hold water or other small molecules. This three-dimensional crystalline structure is also known as molecular sieve due to the gaps in it. Zeolites are either mined from the volcanic rocks or synthesized industrially on a large scale from aluminosilicate gels. These microporous compounds have a wide range of applications in industries such as refinery, biogas, construction, detergents, agriculture, medical, nuclear, etc. The recently published report by IMARC Group, titled “Zeolite Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2017-2022”, finds that the global zeolite market reached a value of more than US$ 33 Billion in 2016. 

Zeolites are largely used in the production of laundry detergents as substitutes for phosphates on account of their water softening properties. Restriction on the usage of phosphates due to environmental concerns has stimulated the demand for zeolites. This has further been supported by a rising demand for detergents in the emerging regions. Further, zeolites are extensively used as catalysts and adsorbents in the oil refining and petrochemical industry. This can be attributed to their stability, cleansing ability and superior activity which help in the production of high quality transportation fuels and chemical products. A surging demand for fuels and chemical products worldwide coupled with a growing emphasis by the governments to use cleaner fuels has further enhanced the market growth. Owing to these factors, the market is expected to reach a value of US$ 42 Billion by 2022, exhibiting a CAGR of around 4% during 2017-2022.
