Key Market Trends

Agriculture Industry to Dominate the Market

  • Due to their high ion exchange and water retention capacity, the natural zeolites are extensively used in fertilizers and soil amendment procedures. Zeolites are also used to increase the ammonia retentivity of the soil.
  • In the fertilizer industry, zeolites trap undesirable metals and prevent the intake of heavy metals in the food chain. Zeolites trap metals, like copper, cadmium, lead, and zinc. Due to high ion exchange capacity, zeolites are seen as effective carriers of herbicides, fungicides, and pesticides.
  • The North American agriculture sector is growing at a steady pace, owing to the decrease in the demand for fertilizer, as well as the drop in grain prices in the domestic market and at the global level. The margin for growers declined, which, in turn, reduces the economic potential of farmers to buy fertilizers for crops.
  • In Europe, there is an increase in the consumption of biofuel and bioenergy, which has increased the demand for fodder crops. Large amounts of fertilizers are used to cultivate fodder crops, because of which the demand for zeolites is expected to increase.
  • The aforementioned growth in the global agriculture industry is likely to contribute to the demand for zeolites, during the forecast period.
Zeolites Market Key Trends

Asia-Pacific to Dominate the Market

  • Asia-Pacific region dominated the global market share. In terms of GDP, China is one of the largest economies in the world.
  • Though the growth in the country remains high, it is gradually diminishing as the population ages and the economy is rebalancing from investment to consumption, manufacturing to services, and external to internal demand.
  • China has increased focus and efforts toward combating high levels of environmental pollution in the country. The 13th five-year plan targets the issue, and in 2015, the government published the Water Pollution Prevention and Control Action Plan, aiming to halt the heavily polluting sectors from contaminating water resources.
  • However, China’s most recent environmental report remains negative, suggesting that 61.5% of groundwater and 28.8% of key rivers were classed as ‘not suitable for human contact’. In order to reverse the state of severe water pollution, China requires high-grade wastewater treatment technologies, thereby, increasing the demand for zeolites in the country.
  • China is a hub for chemical processing, accounting for a major chunk of the chemicals produced globally. The country is the largest producer and consumer of zeolites in the world. China's refinery capacity constitutes around 15% of the world’s refining capacity.
  • Moreover, many refineries in the country have planned to increase the capacities over the next few years, to meet the increasing demand for various chemicals and petrochemicals. With the growing demand for various chemicals globally, the demand for zeolites from this sector is projected to grow, during the forecast period.
