The Global Bentonite Market Size is expected to reach USD 3414.63 Million by 2030, at a CAGR of 7.4% during the forecast period 2022 to 2030. The demand for bentonite is anticipated to rise due to the construction industry's continuous global expansion. Furthermore, it is anticipated that during the forecast period, the value of the bentonite market would be driven by expanding organic farming and an increase in the number of water treatment facilities globally.

 

Market Overview

Bentonite is a kind of clay that is typically created when volcanic ash is altered. It is mostly made up of the smectite mineral montmorillonite. When making moulding sand for the production of iron, steel, and non-ferrous casting, bentonite is employed as a bonding agent. Additionally, bentonite has potent colloidal qualities, which cause it to expand several times in volume when in contact with water, creating a thick and gelatinous fluid.

 

Bentonite is an essential material for many applications due to its special swelling, water absorption, hydration, thixotropy, and viscosity characteristics. Due to its thixotropic qualities, better support, and lubricating capabilities for thick walls, bentonite has long been employed in civil engineering applications, notably in tunnelling applications. Additionally, bentonite's absorption qualities make it a useful substance for treating sewage. Bentonite is also often used in drilling mud for water and oil wells. Sealing borehole walls, removing drill bits, and lubricating the cutting head are the main responsibilities of the position.

 

Pharmaceuticals employ bentonite to absorb/adsorb processes that enable paste production. These include moist compresses, eczema anti-irritants, industrial protection lotions, and calamine lotion. Other personal care items that include bentonite include face creams, baby powders, sunburn paint, mud packs, and baby powders. These elements favourably affect the expansion of the bentonite market worldwide.

 

The construction sector is expected to benefit from a high focus on infrastructure expansion in nations like Brazil, Argentina, India, China, and Malaysia due to increased public spending. The ore pelletizing process is being used more often as a result of rising demand for high-grade iron ore, which might further drive the global market for bentonite. Rising steel and iron production in developing nations like China, India, and Japan has increased demand for iron ore.

 

Bentonite slurries' ability to stabilise the building sector, along with the exorbitant expense of using steel liners, is driving up demand for the commodity. Bentonite slurries don't seep into the surrounding soil, keeping their place in the dug pit and preventing a sealing effect. Therefore, it is anticipated that throughout the forecast period, the superior performance of bentonite in a variety of sectors would drive the bentonite market share. Closures of facilities, issues with the supply chain, and the general economic downturn have all had an influence on the bentonite market trend. China is a significant industrial powerhouse and the greatest producer of raw materials in the world.

 

Furthermore, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared a global health emergency since the COVID-19 sickness has spread to almost 180 countries globally. Global COVID-19 effects are already being seen, and they will have a significant impact on the bentonite market over the next years. The adoption of new drilling and fracking techniques thanks to quick technical development in the United States has made hydrocarbon extraction more cost-effective, which has increased oil and gas output and further accelerated demand for bentonite. The existence of numerous top producers, including Minerals Technologies Inc., Black Hills Bentonite, CETCO, and Halliburton, as well as abundant bentonite deposits in the U.S., primarily in the state of Wyoming, may drive market expansion.

Segmentation Analysis

  • In 2021, the Sodium segment accounted for the largest share of the Market, with 31.6% and a Market revenue of 567.53 Million.

Based on the product, the Bentonite Market is categorized into Sodium, Calcium, Sulphur and Other. In 2021, the Sodium segment accounted for the largest share of the Market, with 31.6% and a Market revenue of 567.53 Million. Throughout the forecast period, the Sodium segment is anticipated to maintain its leading position. Sodium bentonite is used to seal sewage lagoons, city landfills, and stock and recreation ponds. It is quite good in reducing road and highway dust. One of the least expensive and most efficient ways to treat permeable soils is with sodium bentonite.  Because of its high swelling capacity, sodium bentonite is used as a binder in foundry sands because greater swelling bentonite has a higher strength in the water condensation zone. The need for foundry sand has grown in the workshops and factories that produce components for the steel, construction, and automotive industries. Additionally, this opens up a significant market for sodium bentonite manufacturers.

 

  • In 2021, the Foundry sands segment accounted for the largest share of the Market, with 22.3% and a Market revenue of 400.50 Million.

Based on the application, the Bentonite Market is categorized Foundry sands, Cat litter, Iron ore pelletizing, Refining, Drilling muds, Civil engineering and Others. In 2021, the Foundry sands segment accounted for the largest share of the Market, with 22.3% and a Market revenue of 400.50 Million. Throughout the forecast period, the Foundry sands segment is anticipated to maintain its leading position while expanding at the fastest CAGR this is a result as for the preparation of moulding sand used in the production of iron, steel, and nonferrous casting, foundry bentonite is primarily used as a bonding ingredient. It generates green sand moulds with strong flow ability, compact ability, and thermal stability for the manufacturing of high-quality castings because of the special qualities of foundry sand bentonite.
