Application Insights

Halloysite has high demand from the cosmetics industry, for manufacturing cosmetics like lotions, creams, and gels. The product offers immobilization of solid ingredients and liquid ingredients. Polymer manufacturers also utilize halloysite as an additive to enhance physical properties like strength and melting point. The product is used as a filter in polystyrene, polyethylene terephthalate, and polyvinyl chloride.

In addition, increasing demand for ceramics from the HORECA sector along with the high spending on home décor is boosting demand for halloysite. The ceramics application segment is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.7% from 2018 to 2025, in terms of revenue. Halloysite nanotubes offer a high crystal shape and aspect ratio, which improves the strength of coatings & paints. The use of halloysite also eradicates fungal growth on the wall with the help of paint coatings. These benefits are projected to foster the demand for the product.

Regional Insights

In 2017, Asia Pacific led the market with the highest market share due to the increasing adoption of clays in the region. Europe's market is expected to lose its share to the developing countries owing to the declining growth of the healthcare sector across Germany, France, and Italy.

In Germany, the demand for halloysite is expected to witness significant growth. The increasing use of products in Li-ion batteries is gaining traction in the market. The growing adoption of electric vehicles is boosting the demand for batteries, which in turn, is supporting market growth.

Global halloysite market

In the Asia Pacific, the growing construction & building industry is driving the growth of ceramics. Additionally, low maintenance costs and product prices are projected to spur halloysite market growth.

Top brands such as Unilever and P&G have manufacturing units in China and India owing to lower manufacturing costs. These key companies offer a wide range of personal care and cosmetics products. Moreover, halloysites are widely used in moisturizing & personal care items as filler. This is expected to proliferate the demand for the product.

In 2017, Asia Pacific accounted for USD 17.4 million in the overall market. Additionally, the growing medical industry is boosting the demand for ceramics products.

Impact of COVID-19

COVID-19 outbreak has abruptly disrupted the supply chain of the market. Most of the ceramics, polymer manufacturers have shut down their production from February to April in 2020, especially across the Asia Pacific and European markets.

Coronavirus has caused an economic slowdown; thus, ceramic manufacturing companies are facing challenges due to a lack of working capital. In the Asia Pacific, China is a major player in the halloysite production industry. Disruption in the supply of raw materials in China and lack of labor force has impacted the market growth.

Halloysite Market Share Insights

The market is moderately competitive with the presence of limited players. Small manufacturers focus on developing products with enhanced quality which is boosting the demand for halloysite in the ceramics sector.

Halloysite clay is present in different grades based on its purity levels. Key players in the market focus on producing high-quality halloysite using advanced grade materials.
