Zeolites are microporous, aluminosilicate minerals which is generally used as commercial catalysts and adsorbents. They are three dimensional, tetrahedral, crystalline minerals of aluminosilicate earth metals which belong to the acidic catalysts. It has a high melting point, a high-pressure resistance and a high oxidation resistance.
Global Zeolite Market Dynamics
- Rising demand of zeolites in air purifiers
The high demand for zeolites is expected to increase rapidly due to the increase in use of zeolites as air purifiers and dehumidifiers. The zeolites have high adsorption and retention capacities even at high temperatures. The rising demand for zeolites is projected to drive the market's growth.
- Rising demand of natural zeolite
The development in population and migration of people from rural to urban areas, depletion of freshwater sources and scarcity of consumable water overall the world have increased the requirement for desalinated water. The natural zeolites are also used in water treatment applications where their ion-exchange property plays a vital role in the management of radioactive waste which has produced from petroleum production, nuclear reactors, gas purification and wastewater treatment. Also, these zeolites can absorb about 50.0% of their weight in liquid without expanding due to the exceptional absorption capacity. The rising demand of natural zeolite mainly in water treatment applications is anticipated to drive the market's growth rate.
- High demand of zeolite in petrochemical industry
Rising demand of zeolites from petrochemical industries is expected to lucrative opportunities for market growth. The rapid growth of the petrochemical industry has generated an expansion in the demand for zeolites for the manufacturing of several gases and chemicals. Also, growing investments in petrochemicals are expected to augment the demand for the zeolites during the forecast period. For, instance, the Abu Dhabi National Oil Co. (ADNOC) and Reliance Industries Ltd. have decided to construct a petrochemical plant worth USD 2.0 billion in UAE. This collaboration will lead to the establishment of a new project at Ta’ziz.
Furthermore, diversity in the usage of zeolite in end-user industry and rapid urbanization will further generate new opportunities for the global zeolite market during the forecast period of 2022- 2029.
- Toxic nature of synthetic zeolites
Some zeolite dusts are considered as nuisance dusts because of their toxicity. Zeolites is also used in personal care products, raising major concerns over their potential toxicity. Zeolites are a complex group of silicates which can cause pulmonary diseases if inhaled. Moreover, when synthetic zeolites are used as catalysts, they are prone to clogging, which could lead to toxicity. Therefore, toxicity is a main limitation in the use of synthetic zeolites and act as major market restraints, for the growth of the zeolite market during the forecast period.
