World market for kaolin to grow

13 April 2012

The world market for kaolin is projected to grow 3.7%/yr through 2015 to 28.4Mt, valued at nearly US$4bn, according to a new study from the Freedonia Group.

This represents a significant acceleration from the relative stagnation of the 2005 to 2010 period. Growth in demand will be fuelled by a generally stronger economic climate worldwide, with especially rapid growth in developing economies. The largest gains will be seen in China, which will account for 37% of the growth between 2010 and 2015.
