Clay is a chemical composition of minerals, metal oxides and organic dyes known for their hardness and ability to maintain hardness even at high temperatures. With the growing popularity of 3D printing, there is a growing demand for industrial clays which are increasingly being used in the design of 3D models of cars and appliances. Some of the most common industrial clays are the minerals kaolin, bentonite and sepiolite parigolsquite. They are used in many industries such as rubber, catalysts, ceramics, refractories, concrete and paints. Mainly used in coatings of fireplaces, boilers, glass fusing, ceramic furnaces and high temperature furnaces. It is used as a shield for heat generators installed in power plants and houses with chimneys. It is also increasingly used in construction projects to make buildings fireproof..

COVID-19 Impact analysis

  • COVID-19 disease began to spread around the world in early 2021, infecting millions of people worldwide, and major countries around the world enacted foot prohibitions and work stoppage orders. Most industries, with the exception of medical supplies and life support products, have been severely impacted, and clay industries have also been severely impacted.

As the coronavirus pandemic worsened, the entertainment industry, like most other aspects of life, fell into chaos..

Top Impacting factor

Increased spending on infrastructure development, especially in emerging markets, in response to government initiatives to increase domestic output is expected to play a key role in growth of the global industrial clay market. In addition, demand for industrial clay is driven by strong growth in end-consumer industries such as paint and construction. On the other hand, intrinsic threats to substitutes such as bauxite and calcium carbonate prevent the market from reaching its full potential. Rising clay prices are also expected to negatively impact market growth. However, the ongoing R&D efforts and the advent of bioceramics are poised to provide the market with many growth opportunities..
