Global Bleaching Clay Market to Reach US$ 2.5 Billion by 2032, Impelled by Rising Utilization of Edible Oils

July 18, 2022 | Chemical & Materials

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Bleaching Clay Market Report by Type (Natural, Activated), Application (Refining of Vegetable Oils and Fats, Refining of Mineral Oils and Lubricants, and Others), End User (Food and Beverage, Cosmetics and Personal Care, Chemicals, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," the global bleaching clay market reached a value of US$ 1.6 Billion in 2023. Bleaching clay refers to a powdered material that is widely used for removing impurities from edible oils. It is a tasteless, odorless and non-toxic beige powder that is composed of attapulgite, bentonite and sepiolite. It helps in removing unwanted substances from the oil. It is generally mixed with water that is added to the oil, aids in reducing the content of chlorophyll and decomposes oxidation substances. Since edible oils contain various contaminants that are harmful to human consumption, there has been a significant utilization of bleaching clay in order to make the oil safe for consumption.

Global Bleaching Clay Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by the increasing product demand from the food and beverage industry. This is supported by the rising utilization of edible oil in the preparation of numerous food items. In line with this, the augmenting demand for premium and high-quality edible oils due to the growing health consciousness and changing dietary patterns of the masses is creating a positive market outlook. Along with this, continual technological advancements in manufacturing processes in order to procure superior quality bleaching clay are providing an impetus to the market growth. With an enhanced focus on sustainable development, there has been a considerable rise in the adoption of biofuel, which has facilitated the uptake of bleaching clay across the globe. Other factors, including the escalating applications of bleaching clay in the formulation of beauty products, the rising customer spending on personal care products due to the widespread preference for maintaining an aesthetic appearance, and extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players, are also positively influencing the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 2.5 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 5% during 2024-2032.
