Global Diatomite Market Outlook

The global diatomite market size reached approximately 2.44 MMT in 2023. The market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.1% between 2024 and 2032, reaching a volume of around 3.22 MMT by 2032.

 

Key Takeaways

  • North America is expected to dominate the market over the forecast period.
  • Natural diatomaceous earth is expected to constitute a major portion of the diatomite market share.
  • Diatomite is used as a filler in paints and dry chemicals, a mild abrasive in polishes, and an insulation material in moulded shapes, among others.

 

Diatomite is a sedimentary rock rich in silica. It mainly contains the petrified remains of diatoms, which belong to the algae family. Diatomite is a single-celled organism and possesses a porous structure, which makes it highly suitable for usage as an insulation or filtering material.

 

The global diatomite market is being propelled by the extensive use of the product in filtration applications, especially in the production of beer and wine, due to its excellent solids removal properties. The demand is also driven by its applications in agriculture as a natural insecticide, in industrial operations for its absorbent qualities, and in the production of various products such as paints, plastics, and toothpaste. Environmental concerns and the shift towards natural products have further fuelled the demand for diatomite, making it a preferred material across multiple industries.

 

Key Trends and Developments

Growth of the edible oils industry; expansion of existing production facilities; increasing usage of diatomite as a pesticide; and rising demand for diatomite from the construction sector are the major trends favourably impacting the global diatomite market size.

 

Date Company Details
Feb 2024 Showa Chemical Industry Co. Ltd partnered with African Diatomite Industries Limited to boost Kenya’s economic growth and expand the reach of diatomaceous products globally
Jan 2024 Calgon Carbon Corporation completed the acquisition of New Mexico-based Benchmark Tank and Bloomfield Machine and Welding (company) and planned on increasing its market presence in the country of Mexico
Feb 2021 Dicalite Management Group introduced Harvest Hero, which is a range of horticultural products composed of essential minerals like diatomaceous earth and perlite, to promote healthy plant growth.
May 2020 Dicalite Management Group named Maroon Group as the exclusive distributor of Microlite branded products in North America.

 

 

Trends Impact
Growth of the edible oils industry Diatomaceous earth is commonly utilised as a filtration material for refining edible oils, in a process called precoating.
Expansion of existing production facilities Key players are expanding their production facilities of diatomite to meet its growing demand in the construction, edible oils, and agricultural sectors.
Increasing use of diatomite as a pesticide. Diatomaceous earth is extensively used as an insecticide as it is an eco-friendly method of eliminating ants, cockroaches, bed bugs, and other small insects.
Robust growth of the construction sector Diatomaceous earth is utilised in the construction sector to improve the properties of concrete mixes and improve its workability.

 

Global Diatomite Market Trends

The growth of the edible oils industry is expected to positively contribute to the market growth of diatomites, as diatomaceous earth is extensively used in the filtration process of edible oils. Its natural filtering properties help in clarifying oils and removing impurities, ensuring the purity and quality of the final product. As the demand for high-quality edible oils increases globally, the need for effective filtration solutions like diatomaceous earth is anticipated to rise in the coming years.

 

The increasing use of pesticides is contributing to the growth of the diatomite market as diatomaceous earth is a natural, non-toxic pesticide that is effective against a wide range of garden pests. Its mechanical action dehydrates insects by absorbing the oils and fats from their cuticle. As awareness of the environmental and health impacts of chemical pesticides grows, there is a shift towards safer, sustainable alternatives like diatomaceous earth, especially in organic farming and gardening.

Natural diatomite is expected to constitute a major portion of the global diatomite market share in the coming years

Natural diatomaceous earth is expected to dominate the global market in the forecast period. Its widespread use is attributed to rising demand in filter aid and absorbent applications, primarily due to its natural, non-toxic properties and effectiveness in various industrial, agricultural, and filtration processes. The preference for natural diatomaceous earth underscores the growing inclination towards environmentally friendly and sustainable products, reflecting broader consumer and industry trends towards natural solutions.

 

The demand for calcined diatomite is increasing due to its enhanced properties, such as higher porosity and absorbency compared to natural diatomite. This makes it particularly suitable for use in filtration applications, including water purification and the food and beverage industry, where higher purity and efficiency are crucial. Its improved characteristics also make it desirable in applications requiring lightweight and high-strength materials, contributing to its growing popularity across various industries.
