MarketsandMarkets projects that the perlite market size will grow from USD 1.51 Billion in 2017 to USD 2.20 Billion by 2022, at an estimated CAGR of 7.78%. The perlite market is expected to witness high growth as a result of the rapid urbanization, large-scale investments in the building & construction sector, and the rising number of construction activities in emerging economies.

This report has been segmented on the basis of form, application, and region. The industrial sector is projected to be the fastest-growing segment in the perlite market during the forecast period. Expanded perlite finds diverse applications in the industrial sector, ranging from high-performance fillers for plastics to cement; as a filtering agent for petroleum, water, and geothermal wells; and for cryogenic insulation that requires insulation for extremely low to medium and high temperature including insulating concrete, refractory bricks, and underfloor insulation. Safety certifications from regulatory authorities present opportunities for manufacturers to strengthen their position in the perlite market, in order to maintain the quality and performance standards of perlite.

In terms of value, the expanded perlite segment is projected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to factors such as introducing high strength to concrete with less water content and easy workability. Expanded perlite finds applications in several industries including agriculture & horticulture, construction, industrial, and food & beverages.

Perlite Market

Currently, the Asia Pacific region is the largest consumer of perlite products. China, the US, and Germany are among the major markets of perlite. The Asia Pacific perlite market is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The rising number of infrastructural activities as well as the large population in China and India drive the growth of the Asia Pacific perlite market. Additionally, other emerging economies such as South Africa and countries in the Middle East and South America are experiencing high demand for construction. The rapid urbanization in these countries demands faster and cheaper construction of buildings and facilities without compromising on the quality. Additionally, the increasing number of government investments in infrastructural constructions provide the potential for the growth of the perlite market in these countries.

Factors such weak economic conditions in many European countries as the aftermath of the financial recession of 2008–2012, fluctuating costs of raw materials, and infrastructure in developing countries might restrict the growth of the market. The global perlite market is dominated by players such as Imerys Minerals (UK), Keltech Energies (India), Duprι Minerals (UK), Amol Dicalite (India), IPM Group of Companies (Philippines), Bergama Mining Perlite (Turkey), Supreme Perlite Company (US), Genper Group (Turkey), The Schundler Company (US), and Whittemore Company (US). These players adopted acquisitions and expansions as the key growth strategies to expand their presence in the perlite market.
