Transparency Market Research has published a new market report titled, According to the report, the attapulgite market
was valued at USD 238.5 million in 2013 and is likely to reach USD 418.8 million by 2020, expanding at a CAGR of 8.3%
during the forecast period from 2014 to 2020. In terms of volume, the global demand for attapulgite stood at 1,391.8 kilo
tons in 2013.
Increase in oil rig drilling activities, growth of the healthcare industry and rise in construction activities are some of the key
factors driving demand for attapulgite. Attapulgite is widely used in offshore oil and gas drilling activities, especially in
North America, as the mineral swells and forms gel structures in salt water. Additionally, rising demand for innovative cat
litter absorbents is expected to fuel market growth during the forecast period. Cat litter absorbent manufactured using
attapulgite clay effectively absorbs urine as it passes through the mineral layer, leaving a clean surface for the next use.
However, stringent mining regulations, especially in the U.S., are likely to hamper the overall growth of the market.
Nonetheless, use of attapulgite in novel applications such as cosmetics, chemicals and paper is anticipated to offer new
opportunities for market growth.
