Global Synthetic Zeolite Market Size

The global synthetic zeolite market is projected to grow from USD 5.7 billion in 2021 to USD 6.4 billion by 2026 at a CAGR value of 2.5% from 2021 to 2026.

The growth of the synthetic zeolites market can be attributed to the rising demand for detergents clubbed with increasing global population and increasing awareness regarding the use of zeolites in specialty applications.

Zeolites can be classified as natural zeolites and synthetic zeolites. Across different industries, more than 100 types of zeolites are used which are processed synthetically. When the volcanic ashes meet the natural water through lakes, this reaction results in the formation of synthetic zeolites. There have been several experiments and researches that tried imitating these reactional processes in laboratories, however, these experiments require high temperature and high-level synthetic silicates, making them costlier than the natural zeolites. Hence, researchers use cheap raw materials like natural zeolites or waste material in synthesizing zeolites.

Also, while producing synthetic zeolites, other silica-based materials like volcanic glasses or minerals made of clay are utilized in the process.  Synthetic zeolites naturally have a diverse range of properties and forms. The crystallization process and the reactions in chemical materials, as well as the temperature, pressure, and the time taken during this process results in different types of synthetic zeolites.

Research have showcased the better beneficial features of synthetic zeolites for applicational purposes as compared to natural zeolites. The capacity of synthetic zeolites to absorb metal ions at a comparatively much greater rate than natural zeolites makes it a more favored one among the end-user industries. Synthetic zeolites also facilitate larger pore sizes compared to the natural zeolites thus enabling a better sorption process for the industrial users to use in their applicational purposes. These larger pore sizes in synthetic zeolites are also capable of a higher level of oil sorption compared to the small pore natural zeolites which can cause blockages and defusion. Synthetic zeolites also have high adaptability to various chemical characteristics and a very consistent quality that can cater to various applications in different fields.

COVID-19 has had a negative impact on the chemical industry owing to production shutdowns and closure of non-essential stores across the globe. These measures reduced the sales of essential chemicals and led to losses for most of the synthetic zeolite manufacturers. With restrictions being eased and workers returning, the industry is expected to bounce back during the forecast period.

global synthetic zeolite market

Global Synthetic Zeolite Market: By Framework

Based on the framework, the market is segmented into Linde Type A, Faujasite, and MFI. Linde Type A will be the fastest growing segment in the market. Linde Type A is formed from various processes of aluminum and sodium powder, along with aluminosilicate molecules. Linde type A is basically an alumino-silicate zeolite. This framework corresponds to have sodium ions which can be exchanged with other positively charged protons like calcium and potassium. These are majorly used in the ion exchange-based application.

Faujasites are also a silicate-mineral based families which have varied quantity of calcium and sodium in their formulation. However, these are very rare minerals, and thus sometimes act as the alternative counterpart for Linde groups.

Global Synthetic Zeolite Market: By Pore Size

Based on the pore size, the market is segmented into 3A-7A, and 7A-10A. Zeolites usually are available in pore sizes from 1A to 10A, hence, the market for 1A to 10A will be the fastest growing.

These pore sizes facilitate organic mineral separation and the size selection mostly depends on the applicational purposes. Many industries majorly used zeolite types that have pore sizes between 7A to 10A which enable better separation and greater absorption during any industrial application. Zeolites like type X which belong to the faujasite family, also prefer to have higher pore sizes ranging from 8A to 10A which are being used in industries for gas absorptions.

Global Synthetic Zeolite Market: By Function

Based on the function type, the market is segmented into ion exchange, molecular sieve, catalyst. Amongst these, the ion-exchange resin is tremendously used in various kinds of end-user industries and hence is also one of the largest segments in the market.

These ion exchange zeolite functions enable to exchange of one ion of sodium to one ion of calcium. This ion exchange functionality is mainly used in water treatments, to disinfect or remove certain substances, they are also highly used to build detergency.

Global Synthetic Zeolite Market: By Application

Based on the application, the market is segmented into detergent builder, drying, separation, and adsorption, catalytic cracking, specialties. Synthetic zeolites are most dominantly used in the detergent industry and hence this segment is ought to be the largest segment in the market.

Detergent builders require high ion exchange functionalities as well as high absorptional qualities. As these synthetic zeolites facilitate more open and larger size pores compared to the natural zeolites, they execute better results when utilized in the detergent builders.

Global Synthetic Zeolite Market: By Type

Based on the type, the market is segmented into Zeolite A, Type X, Type Y, Ultra-Stable Y (USY), and Zsm-5. Zeolite A is majorly used across various industries and for various applications owing to its features of three dimensional pore structures, which enables better absorption through ion exchange functionalities.

A-type zeolites also have very well defined structural channels that enable them to be useful in high pressure situations. These qualities of high absorption of industrial liquid as well as gas, encourage demand for A-type from the detergent industries. It helps remove substances causing pollution and disinfection. However, the faujasite family of chemical reaction which includes type X zeolites provides comparatively larger pore sizes of 8A to 10A, which facilitates even better absorption in the industries which require drying and separation applicational processes.

Global Synthetic Zeolite Market: By Region

Based on region, the market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Central and South America, Middle East & Africa, and Asia Pacific regions.

North America is the largest shareholder of the market. However, Asia-Pacific region is the fastest growing segment in the synthetic zeolite market. The APAC region has witnessed enormous demand for absorbents in sectors like water purification, agriculture, chemicals, and also the oil and gas sector.

Awareness among the consumers regarding environment friendly detergents and implementation of stringent restraints on the use of phosphates, have helped increase the demand for synthetic zeolites in in the APAC region.
