Global Kaolin Market is segmented on the basis of application and region. Kaolin is a naturally occurring substance generally found in soils that have developed from the chemical weathering of rocks in moist and hot climates. Kaolin is a “hydrated” aluminum silicate. It exists naturally as clay prepared for pharmaceutical purposes by washing with water for removing sand and the other impurities. A good example of such a climate is the tropical rain forest. It is also termed as “White clay”, “China Clay”, “White Cosmetic clay”, Kaolinite clay, “Hydrated Aluminum Silicate”, amongst the other names. It is an essential ingredient in the production of porcelain and widely used in the making of paper.
In its natural state kaolin comes across as a white, soft powder that principally comprises the mineral kaolinite, which, under the electron microscope, is seen to comprise roughly platy, hexagonal crystals ranging from about 0.1 micrometer to 10 micrometers or even greater. The crystals are likely to take book like and vermicular forms, and infrequently macroscopic forms approaching millimeter size are found. Stringent labeling requirements for food packaging by several governmental regulations such as U.S. FDA’s Food Labeling Guide, India’s Food Safety & Standards and EU’s Regulation 1169/2011 has created new opportunities. Kaolin has a variety of other uses in products including paint, rubber, cable insulation, specialty films and fertilizers. New uses are being discovered regularly, and confirm that the mineral will remain in demand for a long time. Kaolin Market is classified, by application into Paper, Ceramics, Paint, Fiberglass, Rubber, and others.
