What is Perlite?

Perlite is a naturally occurring volcanic glass that is mined and processed for use in a variety of applications, including construction, horticulture, and industrial processing. It is formed when obsidian, a type of volcanic glass, is subjected to high heat and pressure. When it is heated to a high temperature, the water trapped within the glass expands, causing the glass to puff up and become porous. This process is called expansion. Perlite has a number of properties that make it useful in various applications. It is lightweight, has a high insulation value, and is able to retain moisture while also allowing excess water to drain away. In construction, it is often used as a lightweight aggregate in concrete, plaster, and insulation materials.

According to the new market research report "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 2025", published by MarketsandMarkets™, The global perlite market size is expected to grow from USD 1.4 billion in 2020 to USD 1.9 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 6.3% during the forecast period. Perlite is used across applications, such as construction, horticulture & agriculture; industrial is the key end-use industry owing to the wide applications of this perlite.

Perlite Market Demand

The demand for perlite depends on a number of factors, including the strength and durability of the material, its insulating properties, and its versatility in a range of applications. The demand for perlite has grown in recent years as the material has become more widely recognized and used in a range of applications. In construction, perlite is used as a lightweight aggregate in concrete and plaster, as well as in insulation products. In horticulture, perlite is used as a soil amendment to improve drainage and aeration, and as a growing medium in hydroponic systems. In industry, perlite is used as a filter aid, a carrier for catalysts and pesticides, and in the production of glass and ceramics.
