Expanded Perlite Market Overview

Expanded perlite is a formless natural volcanic rock which has a property to expand when heated at suitable temperature (760-980 degree Celsius). Further, it has a number of properties such as low bulk density, high heat resistance, low sound transmission, high surface area, low thermal conductivity, chemical inertness and light weight which make it more acceptable in industrial applications. These expanded perlites are highly used in constructional products.

Market Size and Forecast

Global expanded perlite market is anticipated to expand at a robust compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.4% during the forecast period i.e. 2017-2024. Further, the global market of expanded perlite stood at revenue of USD 710.6 Million in 2015. Further, the global expanded perlite market is expected to reach at a valuation of about USD 1.3 Billion by the end of 2024. Rising construction activities all across the globe and growing application of expanded perlite in various industries including oil & gas and other industries are key factors which are anticipated to spur the growth of global market during the forecast period.

Expanded Perlite Market
