Report Overview

The increasing application of zeolites in various sectors, such as agriculture, construction, petrochemical, etc., is driving its market growth. Additionally, rising hygiene concerns and the growing demand for detergents are projected to drive the market throughout the forecast period.

Global Zeolite Market- Industry Trends & Forecast Report 2027

The global zeolite market was worth USD 545.2  Million in 2020 and is further projected to reach USD 749.9 Million by the year 2027, growing at a CAGR of 4.8% in the forecast period (2021-2027).  The growing demand for zeolite is attributable to its increasing application in various sectors, such as agriculture, construction, petrochemical, etc., and the increasing penetration of synthetic zeolite due to its consumption of detergents. Moreover, governments around the world have implemented strict regulations regarding the disposal of waste caused by detergents and other chemicals, which significantly contribute to water pollution. Furthermore, Zeolites are used as cation exchangers to combat water pollution, which in turn is driving its market growth.

Global Zeolite Market- Overview

Minerals such as zeolites are made up of aluminum and silicon compounds that are commonly used as commercial catalysts and adsorbents. Zeolites contain a negatively charged honeycomb structure into which molecules can be absorbed from the environment.  This substance is prominently used as a drying agent in detergents. Among other things, it is used in air purifiers as well as for domestic and commercial water purification. Zeolites can also be used as dietary supplements or medicines to treat and manage various conditions, including herpes, cancer, diarrhea, etc.

Global Zeolite Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Increasing Environmental Awareness

Natural zeolites are considered safe for human health as well as the environment. Zeolite-based products are used for removing heavy metals and organic contaminants in products such as detergents or cement which pollute the environment and harm the human body. Thus, they are increasingly used as adsorbents and catalysts in soil amendment, cement manufacturing, and water purification processes. Zeolites are expected to enjoy lucrative growth opportunities during the forecast period due to increasing pollution levels and environmental consciousness.

Growing Construction Activities in Emerging Economies

Construction activities, especially in emerging economies like China, India, Japan, etc., are a major driving force for the global zeolite market. Zeolites are commonly used as a cement blending material for reacting with calcium ions or calcium hydroxide. Engineers have successfully used zeolites for their adsorption properties to overcome various construction challenges. Zeolites are effective concrete additives because they increase the compressive strength of concrete and facilitate durability by reducing the amount of permeability. Also, it can reduce the amount of cement required to produce concrete. Such applications are fueling the growth of the global zeolite market.

Restraints

Easy Availability of Substitutes

Although zeolite can be used for various purposes, the availability of substitutes acts as a major obstacle to the growth of the global zeolite market. Its adoption may be limited by the presence of transition metals, such as cobalt, zinc, manganese, or iron. It is also possible to substitute zeolites easily with elements such as silicon, germanium, titanium, etc. These materials, like zeolites, act as catalysts and may inhibit the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Zeolite Market

The COVID-19 pandemic broke out in a way that no one could have anticipated. Critical economic activities like manufacturing and distribution channels had to be shut down in order to contain the outbreak.  Therefore, the restrictions directly and negatively affected the growth of the global zeolite market. As a result of lockdown restrictions in different parts of the world and a shortage of labor, major end-users of zeolite (water treatment, petrochemical, construction, etc.) halted their manufacturing and operations, which resulted in significant losses to the global zeolite market.

Global Zeolite Market - By Product Type

Based on product types, the global zeolite market is segmented into natural and synthetic.  The natural zeolite segment accounted for the largest share of the market owing to its wide application in areas such as soil management in agronomy and horticulture, and as a filler in paper. However, synthetic zeolites are expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period due to their increasing use as catalysts in the petrochemical industry. Synthetic zeolites are also less expensive than their counterparts, which increases their market potential.

Global Zeolite Market - By Application

Based on applications, the global zeolite market is segmented into adsorbents, catalysts, detergents, and other applications. Among these, the detergents segment accounts for the largest market share. The high use of detergents in households and commercial spaces is one of the major driving factors for zeolites. As zeolites replace phosphorus in powdered laundry detergents, they soften the water as well as reduce environmental impact. In addition, zeolite is becoming increasingly popular as a catalyst for the hydrocarbon industry, which will likely increase its demand during the forecast period.

Global Zeolite Market - Regional Insights

Geographically, the global zeolite market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle-East & Africa. The Asia-Pacific region dominates the global zeolite market due to the increasing use of zeolite for water treatment and construction in the region. For more than ten years, China has been using zeolite as a mineral admixture for concrete production. With the increasing use of zeolites to produce bio-based products such as medical-grade oxygen, other emerging economies, such as India and Japan, are also catching up with China.
