Wollastonite Powder Market Size To USD 459.3 Million By 2030

Published Date : 17 Nov 2022

The global wollastonite powder market size accounted for USD 246.24 million in 2022 and is predicted to hit around USD 459.3 million by 2030, poised to grow at a CAGR of 8.1% during the forecast period from 2022 to 2030.


Wollastonite is a naturally occurring mineral that is most white to yellow-brown. It has strong force, characteristics of firing, and the ability to minimize crazing. It is chemically composed of calcium, oxygen, and silicon. The chemical formula of wollastonite powder is CaSiO3. It is generally known as metasilicate calcium. It has strong strength, the ability to decrease crazing, and the characteristics of shooting. As silica and alkali source, in ceramics manufacturing. Used in the manufacture of wall tiles, ceramic insulators semi-glass bodies, glazes, thermoplastics, adhesives, and abrasives for ceramic bonding. Wollastonite was found to be useful for its reactivity in acid conditions as an additive and soil conditioner to plant fertilizer. It provides lasting protection counter to soil acidification, in comparison to lime or calcite. Wollastonite has also been used in several countries as a sluggish transporter for insecticides and pesticides. 

Growth Factors:

The Wollastonite powder industry will register significant growth in the next 10 years, owing to the rapidly expanding construction industry across the globe. Growing adoption of wollastonite powder for end-use applications in the rubber, ceramics, and plastic industries in the emerging as well as developed economies worldwide is among the major factors boosting the growth of the target market in the next few years. In addition to this, wollastonite powder is widely used in the manufacturing of fire-resistant insulating boards and cement boards owing to its lightweight. Property which is supporting the growth of the wollastonite powder industry.

Further, wollastonite powder is the most cost-efficient material among all the reinforcement materials in the usage of whitewares and ceramics which is anticipated to augment the growth of the wollastonite powder industry in the coming years. Wollastonite powder is widely preferred among ceramic industries as it offers excellent benefits including low emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) and low ignition loss, hence the major companies in the wollastonite powder market is increasing their manufacturing capacities in order to enhance their market position. 

However, strict government regulation associated with greenhouse gas emissions may hamper the growth of the target market in the near future. Also, the material cost and cost of wollastonite powder associated to aqueous carbonation in the great consumption of energy can impede the growth of the global market over the forecast period of time. Nevertheless, the growing adoption of ultrafine wollastonite along with the increasing application of synthetic wollastonite is a key trend witnessed in the target industry. This trend will continue to fuel target market growth in the near future.
