“The kaolin market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.6% between 2017 and 2022, in terms of value.”

The kaolin market is estimated to be USD 4.56 billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 5.70 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 4.6% during the forecast period. The demand for kaolin from the paper industry is growing at a significant pace. Kaolin is primarily used as a filler and coating pigment in the paper industry, owing to its unique properties. However, the availability of low-cost substitutes is acting as a restraint to the growth of the kaolin market.

“The calcined segment is the largest and the fastest-growing grade segment of the kaolin market, in terms of value.”

Based on grade, the kaolin market has been segmented into calcined, water-washed, and surface-modified. The calcined grade segment of the kaolin market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the increased consumption of calcined kaolin in various applications, such as paints & coatings, ceramics, pigments, and engineered plastic cables.

“The Asia Pacific kaolin market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2017 to 2022, in terms of value.”

The Asia Pacific region is the largest market for kaolin, globally. The kaolin market in the Asia Pacific region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, in terms of value. China, Japan, India, South Korea, Australia, and Rest of Asia Pacific are considered for market analysis in this region.
