Global Cristobalite Market Insight August 4, 2022 Comments

Global cristobalite will increase steadily over the next five years. According to the WK-chem Research, “Global Cristobalite Professional Survey Report 2022, Forecast to 2027”, the increasing rate of building construction across the world is driving the demand for artificial stones which is contributing to the growth of the Cristobalite Market. The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for the 2022-2027 period is projected to be 4.11% base on WK-chem Research regression analysis model.

Analysts’ Viewpoint:
“Air monitoring is being conducted by manufacturers to reduce the exacerbation of COVID-19 infection in factories. Cristobalite is acquiring prominence in several products such as anti-blocking additives in PP (polypropylene) and PE (polyethylene) films, silicone sealant compounds, and engineered stones made from PMMA. However, safe synthetic materials are emerging as a competitive alternative to cristobalite and natural quartz. Hence, companies in the cristobalite market should expand their business in applications that mandatorily require the material such as in outdoor paints & plaster and dental impression composites. High-degree of abrasion and scratch resistance of cristobalite is preferred in ceramics and artificial marble products”, said Diane Patel, Senior analyst, in WK-chem Research.

Market insight:
The increasing rate of building construction across the world is driving the demand for artificial stones which is contributing to the growth of the Cristobalite Market. Cristobalite has a color of white, bright, or sometimes colorless also Talking about its properties it is highly durable in nature and high resistance to chemicals and scratching. This reason makes Cristobalite in engineering stone and for the variety of applications like floorings, bathrooms, etc it is a perfect fit. These factors are contributing to the growth of the market. The demand for cristobalite has exceeded that of supply. So, it is a highly lucrative market for investors. Major factors that are expected to boost the growth of the cristobalite market in the forecast period are the swiftly growing of the construction industry, the increasing demand for cristobalite in the engineered stones market because it enhances the functionality of the stones and the rise in the demand for nickel-based chemicals. Furthermore, the increasing demand for titanosilicates that are including cristobalite due to the membrane technology which is utilized in water purification, petrochemical, and pharmaceutical industries and the increase in the catalysts and automotive applications are few of the factors further anticipated to propel the growth of the cristobalite market in the timeline period.
However, Cristobalite affects human health for a long duration, and in some cases, it may cause cancer. Also, it irritates the eyes and nose and thus governments have regulations on the production of Cristobalite. Correspondingly, with many substitutes available in the market, it may hamper the growth of the Cristobalite Market in the nearby future. On the other hand, the increase in the cost of processing of wollastonite in the commercial form and the strict government guidelines on the production of cristobalite because cristobalite can cause various health hazards like irritation to eyes and nose which can also lead to lung cancer, reproductive damage, and tuberculosis are few of the factors that are most likely to impede the growth of the cristobalite market in the near future.

Competition Landscape:
Based in Antwerp (Belgium), Sibelco is the largest producer of cristobalite, with production capacity of 70,000 tons/year. In October 2017, the company officially opened its third cristobalite kiln in Belgium in order to cater to the rising demand from customers across the globe. It adopts the latest technology to synthesize cristobalite. This WK-chem Research market report is designed to help clients improve their market position, and in line with this, this report provides a detailed analysis of several leading cristobalite companies that include: Sibelco, C.E.D. Process Minerals, Inc., Hoben International Limited, Goldstar Powders India., Silmer SAS, Quarzwerke Gmbh, Donghai Changtong silica powder CO.,LTD., Lianyungang Changtong Silica Powder Co. Ltd, Heraeus Holding, Jinyu Advanced Material Co., Ltd., Momentive, Solvay, Evonik Industries AG, Tosoh Corporation, among other domestic and global players.

Segmentation of Cristobalite Market:
According to the type, the market for cristobalite is divided into: Sand Form and Milled Flour Form. Cristobalite found in sand form is a natural crystalline, non-metallic mineral with the chemical composition of SiO₂•nH₂O. It can be crushed into a powder and shaped for use in ceramics, refractories, and insulation materials. Cristobalite sand is a high-performance dielectric material that can be used to manufacture electrodes and it replaces other types of materials such as SiO. It has excellent electrical characteristics, low-temperature coefficient, ultrahigh insulation resistance, and chemical stability at elevated temperatures. Sand Form is usually used in architectural applications and cementitious products such as concrete mix and grouts.
According to the application, the market for cristobalite is divided into: Artificial Marble, Glass & Ceramics, Paints & Coatings, Foundry Casting, Metallurgy, Industrial Chemicals, and Others (including Adhesives & Sealants, Polishing, and Abrasives). The paints and coatings segment is forecasted to grow at the fastest pace in the forecasted period. Demand for cristobalite is high in the paints & coatings industry due to its various characteristics such as relatively high Mohs hardness of 6.5, high brightness, relatively low refractive index, easy wettability, high inertness in various media, and transparency for UV-radiation (suitable for UV-curing processes).

Cristobalite Market: Regional Analysis
In terms of geography, the global cristobalite market has been segmented into: North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, South America, and the Middle East and Africa. Asia Pacific is the leading consumer of cristobalite across the globe. The region is expected to lead the global cristobalite market, in terms of volume and value, during the forecast period. Rapid urbanization and rise in demand for cristobalite are boosting the demand for cristobalite in Asia Pacific.
China and India are major consumers of cristobalite, as these are rapidly expanding economies in Asia Pacific. The region is also the leading producer of paints and coatings, plastics, and adhesives. Furthermore, glass and ceramics industries in Asia Pacific have been expanding significantly.
