Aug 2nd, 2011

LONDON – Both perlite and vermiculite industries are sensitive to new technologies and trends appearing in the end-use markets, namely –construction and horticulture. The production of both minerals is focusing on volume expansion and has been growing during the post-crisis period. It is notable that a relatively large share of the global vermiculite market (around 39%) belongs to Southern Africa.

Today the key trend of both the perlite and vermiculite markets is the geographical shift of demand. The construction and horticulture segments in the developing countries are moving forward at a far quicker rate than in the mature economies although the global crises affected all the regional markets for the minerals is a negative way. The demand for perlite and vermiculite is moreover driven by the technological advances and the new applications of these minerals.
