According to latest research by Persistence Market Research, Expanded Clay market is set to witness high paced growth between 8% and 10% during 2021-2031. The market for expanded clay is estimated to increase due to the growing level of urbanization and growth of construction industry in developed and developing countries where infrastructure development involves creation of complex yet sustainable structures.
Due to the functional properties of lightweight concrete with the advantage of being efficient and long-lasting aggregate suitable for a number of applications, it is widely used in the construction industry for house construction, building roads and walls, or developing drainage solutions.
In addition to that, the sustainable construction material is estimated to increase in demand as it increases efficiency of the constructed structure. As expanded clay is used in the formulation of lightweight concrete, its market is projected to witness increasing demand given the above mentioned factors.
Also with its versatile applications in the field of agriculture and even in water treatment facilities, the future demand is estimated to get a boost in the coming forecast period.
Expanded clay aggregates are widely being used in the field of agriculture as substrate material for constructed wetlands given to their phosphate removal ability, conductivity, hydraulic and plant rooting, mechanical strength and its resistance to clogging.
Various manufacturers are laying great emphasis on the sustainable and clean nature of the product as it is fully recyclable, reusable and is decomposable in nature. Due to these peculiar features, it is used for extensive and intensive roof gardening, which is a fast growing trend in the industry of interior decor.
Expanded clay also has its applications in water treatment facilities and in geotechnical structures such as in railway track support. It helps provide efficient drainage of the structural layers of the road due to its water absorption capacity and excellent thermal insulation.
US is one of the most prominent markets for expanded clay, and also has significant presence of numerous manufacturers which can be found all over the regions of North America. As the United States is the one of the largest construction market and is known for building high raise infrastructure with complex designs, the market in this region is projected to provide significant opportunities in the upcoming decade.
Another advantage for this regional market is the prominent presence other diverse sector which use the product, such that the demand is not excessively dependent on the construction sector alone. The key manufacturers have focus on research and development for new innovations, and products are distributed across all of the sectors.
Manufacturer associations also have partnership with other technical organizations (ACI, ASTM, etc.) to ensure that it has product quality, life-safety, and professional integrity too.
