The global kaolin market is primarily driven by the increasing demand for the product in the paper industry. About 40% of kaolin is used for filling and coating of paper. When mixed with cellulose fiber, it enhances the opacity, printability, texture, and color of the paper sheet. Kaolin is an excellent substitute of calcium carbonate as a filler due to its easy availability and competitive price. Furthermore, the use of kaolin in the production of chinaware and porcelainware is driving the market growth. Kaolin is used in the production of biodiesel through transesterification of vegetables, which is projected to propel the market growth further.
