Key players of the market include SCR Sibelco NV, 3M Company, and Anglo Pacific Minerals Ltd., among others. The market for nepheline syenite reached a volume of 5062 thousand metric tons in 2020. The industry is further expected to grow with the rising demand for glass and ceramics.
Increasing ceramics demand across major end-use industries, such as construction, electrical and electronics, and medical devices is expected to be the critical factor driving the global nepheline syenite market over the forecast period. The increasing glass demand in the end-use segment is likely to propel the market growth. Nepheline syenite, like feldspar, when added to ceramics and glass products, lowers the melting temperature of ceramics mixture and increases resistance to scratching and breaking of glass, respectively. Therefore, the growing ceramic and glass industry, on account of surging demand from end-use industries, is expected to drive the global nepheline syenite market over the next six years.
Along with this, an increasing nepheline syenite application in end-use products, such as refractories, pigments and fillers, construction facades, and countertops is further anticipated to impact the global nepheline syenite market positively. However, increasing propane, natural gas, rising fuel oil prices and escalating transportation costs are expected to hinder the market growth over the foreseeable period.
