As per the study, the market was estimated to grow from USD 1.62 Billion in 2021 to USD 2.81 Billion by 2028 at a CAGR of 8.1% during the forecast period 2022-2028.

Bentonite is a colloidal clay mineral, formed from weathering volcanic ash often in the presence of water. It is a naturally occurring clay, prominently consisting of montmorillonite, having high water absorption capacity, which results in its expanding and swelling.

The swelling action of absorption of bentonite is contingent on its ion exchange capacity. The Bentonite market is segmented by product type into sodium, calcium, sulphur, and others and by application type into foundry sands, cat litter, iron ore pelletizing, refining, drilling muds, civil engineering, and others.
