Zeolites can be defined as hydrated three-dimensional microporous aluminosilicate minerals which find their applications in water filters and as water softeners. Zeolite minerals have a relatively porous structure which makes them suitable for usage in detergents, petrochemical, nuclear, refrigeration, concrete, and various other end-user industries. Structure of zeolites mainly encompasses silicon-oxygen-aluminum linkages, which form pores of identical size on the upper crest of the mineral. Zeolites have regular internal cavities and interconnected channels of distinct sizes and shapes. The varied internal structure of zeolites is attributed to a diverse crystal structure and chemical composition. Globally, increasing demand of zeolites in major end-use industries is expected to remain the prime growth driver for zeolites during the period of study.
Geographically, Europe dominated the zeolites market driven by government support for the production of bio-based chemicals, utilization in the disposal of nuclear waste and abundance of the natural zeolite in major consuming nations. Europe was followed by North America and Asia-Pacific as second and third largest market for zeolites market. Asia Pacific is projected to have the fastest growth, on account of growing infrastructure investment in China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, and other Southeast Asian countries.
