The Asia Pacific region accounted for the largest share of the perlite market 

The Asia Pacific contributes a major market share in the ****** perlite market. Due to the increasing industrialization as well as the large population in China, Japan, and India, these countries are experiencing high demand for building & construction. The rapid urbanization in these countries demands faster and cheaper construction of buildings and facilities without compromising on quality. Additionally, the increasing government investments in infrastructural constructions provide the potential for the growth of the perlite market in these countries.

Perlite is a type of naturally occurring siliceous volcanic rock with a pearly luster formed by the cooling of molten lava. When it is heated to a suitable temperature, it expands 4–20 times of its original volume. This expansion is due to the presence of water in perlite, which when heated, gets vaporized to form tiny bubbles, thereby providing excellent insulation, lightweight, and durability properties. Hence, perlite finds application in construction, horticulture & agriculture, industrial, pharmaceuticals, food products, personal care products, and water treatment, among others. MarketsandMarkets projects that the perlite market, in terms of value, will grow from USD 1.51 Billion in 2017 to USD 2.20 Billion by 2022, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.78%. The increase in demand for perlite from the construction and agriculture & horticulture sectors drives the growth of the perlite market.

Companies such as Keltech Energies (India) and Genper Group (Turkey) adopted this strategy to expand their geographic reach, along with strengthening their manufacturing capabilities, boost product & service portfolios, and enhance their growth prospects in the perlite market.

Keltech Energies focuses on maintaining a presence throughout the construction value chain through urban planning, property development, and financial engineering; and develops sustainable buildings that take into consideration the technical, environmental, and social issues related to the project. In 2016, Keltech Energies started a new manufacturing plant in Vishwasnagar, Karnataka, India, with all the advanced technologies from Showa Chemical Industry Co, Ltd. (Japan), a leading provider of filter aid solutions. This plant increased its capacity to produce an additional 10,000 tons of filter aids per annum.
