Global Expanded Perlite Market: Overview
Perlite, an amorphous volcanic glass having high water content, is essentially formed from hydration of obsidian. It is found in volcanic regions and can expand significantly when heated. Expanded perlite is obtained after perlite processing and milling. Water molecules are released during the expansion process, resulting in the lowering of its density and weight. It has excellent insulation properties.
Global Expanded Perlite Market: Key Trends
At the forefront of driving growth in the global expanded perlite market is the massive uptick in construction activities worldwide, particularly in the emerging economies. This has substantially upped demand for ancillary materials resulting in high uptake expanded perlite. Another factor stoking growth in the market is the increasing horticultural activities in which expanded perlite is a sought after ingredient for the formulation of soil aggregates, owing to its significant water retention properties.
Another factor slated to positively influence the market is the growth in the beer industry in the relatively underserved markets. Expanded perlite finds application in filtration in breweries, particularly beer. Countering the growth in the market, on the other hand, is the presence of substitutes for most applications. Perlite can be supplanted by materials such as barite, diatomaceous rock, and polymeric foams for thermal insulation and soundproofing applications.

Global Expanded Perlite Market: Market Potential
Owing to its excellent insulation properties and ability to expand substantially, perlite is used as an insulator in soil aeration, paint, plaster, ceramics, bricks, insulating panels on walls of wells, and concrete fillers. Many business organizations are coming up with projects to generate perlite on account of its strong demand due to the aforementioned applications.
The segment that will hold out substantial growth opportunity for players in the global expanded perlite market is the booming oil and gas industry. Perlite finds application in filtration and process aid applications in water treatment plants, mining, and shale gas drilling activities. It helps to hold water in soil, soil aeration, and facilitates thermal insulation in oil wells.
Further, the explosive construction segment will also drive growth in the market. This is because expanded perlite is used in the formulation of boulders, cement mixture, concrete additives, masonry, and bricks. Expanded perlite is chemically inert, non-toxic, and insulates against thermal, electric, and audio conduction. Because of the aforementioned unique perceived benefits, it is used in the formulation of personal care products such as soaps and scrubs. This will also lead to their demand in the near future.
