Dublin, Nov. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Diatomite Market by Type, by Application: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2021-2031” report has been added to from offer.

Diatomite Market was valued at USD 1.4 Billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 2.4 Billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 5.7% from 2022 to 2031.

Diatomite is a natural rock, and it is soft siliceous sedimentary, which is quite easily crumbled into a fine powder containing white or off-white color. Diatomite particle size varies from less than 3 mm to more than 1 mm. Depending on the granularity, diatomite powder can possess an abrasive feel, similar to pumice powder, and ends up with a low density due to its high porosity.

The basic chemical makeup of oven-dried diatomaceous earth is 80-90% silica, 2-4% alumina, and 0.5-2% iron oxide. Diatomaceous earth is the fossilized remains of diatoms, which is a type of hard-shelled protist. It is mainly used as a filtration aid, mild abrasive in products such as metal polishes and toothpastes, heat insulator, absorbent for liquids, mechanical insecticide, matting agent for coatings, anti-blocking agent in plastic films, porous support for chemical catalysts, activator in blood clotting studies, kitty litter, reinforcing filler in plastics and rubber, a stabilizing component of dynamite, and soil for potted plants and trees such as bonsai.

The diatomite market has witnessed significant growth due to factors such as infiltration of broader applications, aggregates, fillers, absorbents and others. Diatomite is a common ingredient used in the production of Portland cement. It is widely used in filtration, which has various uses including beer and wine production, pharmaceutical manufacturing, food and beverage processing, and water filtration.

It is also increasingly in demand by the paints and coatings industry. Since diatomite regulates permeability, provides strength, and improves coating adhesion by increasing the volume of the contents, it is used as an ingredient in paints and coatings. It is used in crop protection chemicals such as insecticides, fungicides, rodenticides, etc. In medical and healthcare applications, diatomite is applied in DNA purification, liquid absorption and filtration.

Additionally, it is used in agricultural applications including hydroponics, nutrient marker in livestock, and other specialty applications. However, government regulations on diatomite due to health concerns and expensive mining and processing of diatomite might impact the growth of this market in the near future. Nevertheless, there are opportunities for market participants to invest in this market, with the steady growth of the construction and agriculture sectors.

The diatomite market is segmented on the basis of type, application and region. Based on type, the market is categorized into natural, calcined and flux calcined. Based on application, the market is categorized into filtration, cement additive, filler, absorbent, and others. Based on region, the market is studied North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Key players operating in the global diatomite market include Caltron Clays & Chemicals Pvt. ltd, Decalite Europe NV, Diatomit CJSC, Imerys Filtration Mineral Inc., Kuraray Co. Ltd., Nova Industries Ltd, Reade International Corp., Seema Minerals & Metals, Showa Industries CO Ltd and US Silica Holdings Inc.
