Diatomite is a naturally occurring rock, and it is soft, siliceous sedimentary, which is quite easily crumbled into a fine powder containing white or off-white color. The particle size of diatomite is ranging from less than three ?m to above 1 mm. Depending on the granularity, diatomite powder can possess an abrasive feel, which is similar to pumice powder, and found with a low density due to the result of its high porosity. The basic chemical composition of oven-dried diatomaceous earth includes 80-90% silica, 2-4% alumina, and 0.5-2% iron oxide. Diatomaceous earth consists of fossilized remains of diatoms, which is a type of hard-shelled protist. It is basically used as a filtration aid, mild abrasive in products such as metal polishes and toothpaste, a thermal insulator, absorbent for liquids, mechanical insecticide, matting agent for coatings, anti-block in plastic films, porous support for chemical catalysts, activator in blood clotting studies, cat litter, reinforcing filler in plastics &rubber, a stabilizing component of dynamite, and soil for potted plants & trees like bonsai..
The diatomite market has witnessed a significant growth owing to factors such as wider application infiltration, aggregates, fillers, absorbents, and others. Diatomite is widely used as an additive for the manufacturing of Portland cement. Filtration is also one of the major applications of diatomite, and this filtration is used for a range of applications such as water purification, pharmaceutical manufacturing, food and beverage processing, beer & wine-producing, among others. Furthermore, there is an increasing demand for diatomite from the paints and coatings industry as well. Diatomite is in use as an additive in paints and coatings since it controls permeability, adds strength, and enhances coating adhesion by increasing the volume of the content. In crop protection chemicals, diatomite is applied insecticides, fungicides, rodenticide, and among others. In medical & healthcare applications, diatomite is applied in DNA purification, absorbent, and filtration of liquids. In addition to that, diatomite is further used in agricultural applications, including hydroponics, nutrient marker in livestock, and other specialty applications. However, government regulations on diatomite due to health-related issues and costly extraction & processing of diatomite may impact on the growth of this market in the near future. Nevertheless, with the steady growth in the construction industry and agriculture industry, there are opportunities for the market players to invest in this market.
