World Kaolin

As Quoted In Industrial Minerals

Global demand for processed kaolin clay products will reach 24.8 million metric tons in 2013, based in part on an improved paper market, which will offset a slower ceramics market. Strong growth in developing Asian countries will account for most new kaolin demand, with China alone claiming over half of the global gain.

This study analyzes the $3.1 billion world kaolin industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by market (e.g., paper, ceramics, refractories, paint, rubber), world region (e.g., Asia/Pacific, Western Europe, North America) and for 20 countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 32 industry players, including Imerys, KaMin and BASF.
