Rise in Usage of Expanded Perlite as Absorbent to Boost Opportunities for Global Expanded Perlite Market

  • Expanded Perlite has high absorption property due to the formation of cavities formed while expanding perlite by subjecting it to high temperature.
  • It is often mixed with soil in order to filter stormwater runoff as well as solidify industrial sludge as it can efficiently absorb large amount of water without adding more volume to the sludge post absorption.
  • Various drivers have bolstered the utilization of expanded perlite in water quality management. Moreover, water treatment end-use industry segment is predicted for exponential growth in the expanded perlite market and the global expanded perlite market is expected to grow at a modest CAGR during the forecast period. Thus, the concept of storm water filtration is acquiring popularity in the market for expanded perlite. Likewise, special attributes of expanded perlite are benefitting stakeholders in order to carry out storm water filtration. This is evident since expanded type segment accounts for the larger share of the expanded perlite market as compared to unexpanded/crude segment.
  • High surface area, neutral pH, and porous surface texture of expanded perlite have made it a preferred choice among stakeholders opting for storm water filtration. Likewise, the Washington State Dept. of Transportation have developed roadside media filter drains that incorporate horticulture-grade perlite, and agricultural gypsum held in place by crushed rocks to filter suspended solids and other pollutants from roadway runoff.

Wide Accessibility of a Substitute Items to Hamper Global Expanded Perlite Market

  • One of the key application of expanded perlite is in the brew business, where in it is used for sound sealing applications and warm application. However, the materials such as diatomaceous shake, barite, and polymeric froths are the major substitutes of perlite hampering the market growth in this industry.
  • Wide accessibility of a substitute items is a main consideration expected to limitation growth of the worldwide perlite market. In addition, stringent adherence for utilization of perlite by government in development division is another factor expected to hamper development.

North America to Provide Lucrative Opportunities in Global Expanded Perlite Market

  • There is a higher emphasis on green building, energy saving, and superior construction products due to the varying climatic conditions in the North America. Expanded perlite is a preferred material in green buildings, as it reduces energy consumption for heating and cooling.
  • The U.S. is among the top five producers of perlite and expanded perlite. The market size of the U.S. is more than four times that of Canada. Most perlite production is concentrated in the U.S. It has eight perlite mines spread across the West and mid-West region and more than 47 expanders located across the U.S.
  • Demand for expanded perlite is high in the construction sector primarily due to the reviving residential housing sector in the U.S., post the 2008
  • Major industry players including Aegean Perlites SA and Perlite-Hellas are engaged in backward integration during crude perlite mining in the North American region.
