Increasing oil drilling and construction activities across the world is expected to create increasing demand for bentonite between 2021 and 2031, finds Future Market Insights (FMI) in a new study. According to the report, the market is expected to reach US$ 2.37 Bn by the end of 2031. Through the course of the forecast period it is expected to record solid growth, especially since developing economies are expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities.
Bentonite is a highly colloidal clay mineral containing variety of accessory minerals such as quartz, feldspar, calcite and gypsum. Properties such as water absorption, swelling, viscosity, hydration and thixotropy makes bentonite a valuable material across various industries. Chemical and mechanical properties of bentonite materials can be altered through various additions and combinations of raw materials, which is based on application or use of finished product.
Bentonite is known for its versatile nature and application in numerous industries such as construction, oil & gas, food, pharmaceutical, foundry and among others. Of these, the oil industry is expected to remain dominant, accounting for nearly one-fourth of bentonite sold globally.
