Perlite Market by Form (Expanded Perlite and Crude Perlite), Application (Construction, Agriculture & Horticulture, and Industrial), and Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America) - Global Forecast to 2022

“Perlite market projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.78%”
The perlite market size is estimated to be USD 1.51 billion in 2017 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.78% to reach USD 2.20 billion by 2022. The market is driven by factors such as the increasing urban population, increasing industrialization, and large-scale investments in the construction sector. The construction industry is evolving continuously; huge differences are witnessed in the structures built today as compared to the ones built over a decade ago. Increase in the disposable income of the middle-class population in developing countries and changing preferences in terms of construction methods are increasing the reliance on advanced construction materials and technologies, which is driving the perlite market. Lack of awareness regarding perlite and its benefits, along with unstable costs of raw materials might restrain the demand for perlite.

“The expanded perlite segment held a larger share of the perlite market in 2016.”
The expanded perlite segment dominated the perlite market in 2016 and is projected to grow at a higher rate during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to its various properties such as high insulation, acoustic properties, and excellent water retention. It also has a high water density that is beneficial for the healthy growth of plants and hence witnesses a high demand from the horticultural sector. Perlite increases the strength, durability, surface finish, and resistance to withstand adverse climatic conditions as per design specifications/requirements without compromising on the quality of the concrete structure. The rising demand for durable, lightweight, and efficient raw materials in the construction industry is expected to boost the perlite market through the forecast period.

“Asia Pacific region is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period”
The Asia Pacific market is projected to be the fastest-growing during the forecast period. The major factor driving the growth of the market is the large-scale government investments in the building & construction sector in the region. Additionally, the increasing population and rising income accelerate the per capita spending on construction. The markets of China and India are projected to be lucrative due to their ongoing and upcoming infrastructural construction projects as well as the increase in consumer spending on construction activities.
