The global nepheline market size reached US$ 178.71 Million in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 206.13 Million by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 2.3% during 2023-2028. The rising adoption of nepheline syenite as an alternative source for potassium and aluminum, the increasing usage of nepheline syenite in the formulation of paints and coatings, and a considerable rise in the extraction of rare earth elements (REE) represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Nepheline refers to a fine-grained aphanitic igneous rock that is primarily composed of nepheline and pyroxene. Among its components are nepheline, microcline (potassium feldspar), and albite (sodium feldspar), along with mica, magnetite, and hornblende. Usually white, yellow, grey, green, or reddish in appearance, nepheline aggregates are compact and granular in texture and translucent with a greasy luster. Nepheline exhibits a similar structure to tridymite, an aluminosilicate of potassium and sodium, comprising two polymorphic groups. As a result of molten magma being devoid of silica, nepheline contains much lower silica content and higher alumina content while being characterized by high chemical durability and improved thermal endurance. Nepheline is widely used in weather-resistant paints due to its ability to impart weather resistance and a glossy finish to the end product. It also finds widespread applications as a filler in plastics and foam rubber.
Nepheline Market Trends:
The rising adoption of nepheline syenite as an alternative source for potassium and aluminum mining activities is majorly driving the global market. This can be attributed to an enhanced focus by the key players on the implementation of an integrated approach for the extraction of potassium and aluminum from silicate minerals. In addition to this, the escalating demand for nepheline in numerous end-use industries, such as electrical and electronics, medical equipment, and automotive, as a raw material is positively impacting the market. Moreover, the increasing usage of nepheline syenite in the formulation of paints and coatings is providing an impetus to the market. Besides this, significant growth in the construction sector across the globe is also propelling the demand for nepheline. The market is further propelled by continual technological advancements in the manufacturing of plastic and plastic by-products, which is creating a positive outlook for the market. Apart from this, a considerable rise in the extraction of rare earth elements (REE) is creating lucrative opportunities in the market. Also, the rapid product utilization in the formulation of ceramic tiles and utensils is fueling the market growth. Some of the other factors contributing to the market include rapid urbanization and industrialization, the rising popularity of plastic products in numerous end-use applications, inflating disposable income levels and extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players.
