Zeolites Market By Form (Natural, Synthetic), By Application (Catalyst, Adsorbent, Detergent builders, Others) - Growth, Future Prospects And Competitive Analysis, 2017 - 2025

Tectosilicates have been commonly established as zeolites. Zeolites are found in nature as well as synthesized by chemical processes. The properties of zeolites vary depending on the synthesis method and the source materials used, and thus their applications as adsorbents, catalysts, detergent builders, and so on.

Zeolites in nature often form as crystals in small cavities of basaltic rocks over the years or as volcanic tuffs or glass altered by the interaction with saline water. These natural zeolites are formed in a number of geological environments, such as alkaline deserts, lake sediments, ash ponds, and marine sediments, at relatively low temperatures under natural conditions.

By product type, zeolite market segmentation includes natural zeolites and synthetic zeolites. On the basis of application, the global zeolite market is segmented into catalysts, adsorbents, detergent builders, and others. The market size and forecast of each application and product type are presented for the period 2015–2025, along with their respective CAGRs% for the forecast period2017–20255

Based on form, the zeolites market is categorized into two segments:

  • Natural
  • Synthetic

By form, zeolites market segmentation includes natural and synthetic forms, of which, in 2016, the natural form dominated the market in terms of revenue contribution and is further expected to remain dominant during the forecast period of 2017 to 2025. In 2016, segments accounted for more than 55% of the total market share. Natural zeolite is widely used as a catalyst, adsorbent, detergent, etc.

However, during the forecast period of 2017 to 2025, synthetic zeolite is expected to be the fastest-growing segment of the zeolite market, owing to the rapidly growing demand for synthetic zeolite as a catalyst, adsorbent, and detergent builder. Synthetic zeolites are widely used in the catalyst application segment as they have a well-defined pore structure and adjustable acidity. Synthetic zeolites are also useful in fluid catalytic cracking and hydrocracking processes in the petrochemical industry.

Based on applications, the zeolites market is categorized into the following segments:

  • Catalyst
  • Adsorbent
  • Detergent builders
  • Others (dietary supplements, wound care, silver zeolite, etc.)

Among considered applications, the detergent segment held the largest market share in 2016, accounting for more than 60% of the total demand for zeolites, and is expected to maintain its dominance through the forecast period.

The increasing use of zeolites as refrigeration adsorbents due to their non-flammability, non-toxicity, and natural availability is a key factor driving growth in the zeolites market. Some of the other factors fueling the zeolites market's growth include the rising consumption of household laundry detergents in high-population nations such as India and China. Furthermore, the increasing use of zeolites in the petroleum industry is expected to drive demand in the coming years. The major trends governing the global zeolites market include the increasing use of zeolites as catalysts in several end-use industries.

In the fiscal year 2016, Europe and Asia Pacific were the largest regional markets for zeolite. China and India are potential zeolite markets in the Asia Pacific over the next five to six years. Growing consumption of zeolite as a detergent builder and absorbent, especially in China and India, along with commercialization measures for zeolite as an absorbent in various end-use industries, is likely to fuel the zeolite market's growth. Also, the market is estimated to lose its share in developed regions to developing regions in the next few years.

The demand for zeolite from the European market comes from the rise in demand for automotive or transportation fuels and fluid catalytic cracking catalysts. The European zeolite market is expected to grow at a significant rate in the upcoming years.
