Water Washed is expected to account for the largest market share in forecasted period, in terms of both value and volume.
The most popular procedure for transforming raw kaolin into its finished products is the water-washed process, also known as wet processing. This process calls for the raw kaolin to go through a number of processes, including screening, grinding, centrifuging, slurring, blunging, and chemical treatment. The market is expanding as a result of rising demand, especially from the building and construction sector. Notably, the water-washed method is often used to produce hydrous kaolin because it helps keep the clay's water content between 12% and 14%.
Ceramic & sanitary wares are expected to witness the highest CAGR between 2023 to 2028
Due to its beneficial qualities, kaolin is widely used in the ceramics and sanitary goods industries and is expected to grow with the highest CAGR. It is the perfect material for creating ceramic whiteware products, such as porcelain items, insulators, and refractories, due to its high fusion temperature and white-burning properties. Kaolin is also a suitable material for the creation of porcelain electrical insulators due to its outstanding dielectric characteristics and chemical inertness. Kaolin is prized for its dimensional stability, high fusing point, low water content, and remarkable green strength in refractory applications. It gives whiteware goods dimensional stability, smooth surface finish, and dry and fired strength.
Asia Pacific account for the largest market share in the global kaolin market
Asia Pacific region dominated the global kaolin market in 2022 by holding the largest market share.
