Ulexite Market Analysis

The global ulexite market size reached 981.2 Thousand Tonnes in 2023. By 2032, IMARC Group expects the market to reach 1686.1 Thousand Tonnes, at a projected CAGR of 6.20% during 2023-2032.

  • The glass industry is the largest consumer of ulexite, due to its ability to reduce the melting point of raw materials to improve their optical purity. Ulexite helps enhance the properties of glass to ensure that the glass produced is clearer, durable, and chemical and thermal resistant. For instance, the global flat glass market generates close to 106 million tonnes annually with 320 flat glass manufacturers that operate on 560 sites according to the International Year of Glass in 2022. There are about 650 manufacturers of glass containers globally, with a presence on some 1200 sites and a combined production output of close to 95 million tonnes a year. Additionally, some segment consists of about 230 manufacturers on some 400 sites, producing close to 8 million tonnes of glass annually for domestic glass and tableware. Thus, there are 1200 companies present on a combined 2160 sites operating in the industry, with combined production estimated at a staggering 209 million tonnes of glass a year. It does not include companies connected to glass fiber production, art glass, specialty glasses, and numerous secondary industries. As global construction is growing, the demand for architectural glass is also increasing, while automotive production requires more automotive glass. Collectively, the wide range of uses in expanding industries drive up the ulexite market.
  • The growing urbanization leads to an increasing demand for building materials, including glass that uses ulexite. For instance, the United Nations reports that the share of the global population living in urban areas to reach 68% in 2050. Experts predict that the urban population will increase, resulting in an additional 2.5 billion people living in cities by 2050. According to the latest data, roughly 90 percent of this growth is expected in Africa and Asia. As global urbanization increases, the demand for the raw material for glass, ulexite is also increasing. The population is expected to increase and to meet consumer demand, the number of commercial buildings, bridges, and utilities will be constructed increasing the ulexite-derived products such as glass for windows, facades, and internal fixtures owing to the expanding urbanized areas.
  • Ulexite acts as a supply of boron, which is a critical component of plant growth and development. Boron is obtained from ulexite and is vital in different physiological processes inside plants, including cell wall structure, flowering, and fruit development. With the increase in agricultural activities and the need for fertilizers, the demand for ulexite is surging globally. For instance, the global agribusiness size in 2023 was $3.3 trillion. IMARC Group predicts that the worth of the marketplace will rise to $4.3 trillion by 2032, increasing at a CAGR of 2.89% between 2024 and 2032. Therefore, with the intense growth of agribusiness, there is a growing necessity to increase crop output and boost agricultural production to fulfil the rising need for food globally.

Product Description

Ulexite, chemically known as sodium calcium borate, is a naturally occurring mineral that is mainly present in arid regions, as white crystal aggregates that maintain a fibrous structure. It is composed of hydrated sodium calcium borate hydroxide through the process of mining and subsequent beneficiation. The mineral is extracted from underground deposits, processed to eliminate impurities, and further crushed and ground to acquire the desired grade of the substance to be used for further applications. Ulexite is widely used across various industries such as the glass industry for its unique optical properties and for acting as a flux to decrease the melting temperature of glass and ensure transparency. Besides this, ulexite is also used in agriculture to generate boron-containing fertilizers as a vital micronutrient for various crops. Moreover, ulexite is employed in the manufacturing of ceramics, enamels, and specialty chemicals due to its boron content and established optical properties.
