Increasing demand for ceramic tiles. 

The construction industry in the US, China, and India is growing tremendously with rapid industrialization. The high rate of construction activities creates an enormous demand for various construction materials. In North America, the construction industry is one of the significant contributors to the region's economy. According to the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC), the US construction industry creates $1.4 trillion worth of structures each year. Therefore, the demand for ceramic tiles is increasing with the growth in the construction sector. Ceramic tile is one of the most important materials consumed in the construction industry. Brazil and India are also the largest manufacturers of ceramic tiles. The feldspar market is expected to grow in these countries as well. Feldspar, kaolin, bentonite, and silica sand are the major raw materials used in manufacturing ceramic tiles. The increasing construction activities across the globe is driving the feldspar market.

Within the report, the market is segmented into type, end use, and geography. By type, the market is further segmented into plagioclase feldspar, and k-feldspar. Based on end use, the market is further segmented into glass, ceramics, fillers, and others. Geographically, the market is sub segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South & Central America, and Middle East & Africa.

Growing urbanization in developing economies.

Rapid urbanization in developing countries such as China, India, Brazil, and Vietnam is expected to bolster the feldspar market growth. These countries are witnessing a rise in the construction of residential and commercial buildings, which is expected to increase the demand for feldspar in developing economies. As per the report of CEIC, in 2020, Beijing recorded 237,142.000 square meter building construction work which is 5% greater than the previous building construction work. Further, feldspar is extensively used in the ceramic industry for its molding properties. It is also used in the manufacture of sanitary wares, tiles, and tableware and has been significantly utilized as a direct substitute against the traditional method of cement. This, in turn, is driving the feldspar market.

APAC is the largest feldspar market in the forecast period.

APAC comprises economies such as China, India, Japan, Australia, South Korea, and Rest of APAC. Many of the APAC countries, such as China and India, are among the world's fastest-growing populations. With a growing population, the construction industry is in high demand in APAC. In China, demographics are likely to continue to drive residential development expansion. Rising household incomes, as well as population migration from rural to urban regions, are predicted to fuel demand for residential buildings in the country. In addition to residential infrastructure, non-residential infrastructure is expected to grow considerably in the future years. The continuous growth in the construction sector drives the demand for feldspar in the region.
