Based on the end-use industry, the kaolin market has been segmented into paper, ceramic & sanitary wares, fiberglass, paints & coatings, rubber, plastics, and others.The paper segment is expected to lead the kaolin market. This is due to improvement in paper appearance, which is characterized by gloss, smoothness, brightness, and opacity. Kaolin also improves various other properties of paper such as ink absorption and ink pigment holdout, low linting tendency, and roughness, which, in turn, enhance the print ability of paper. Kaolin is combined with pigments such as calcium carbonate, talc, or titanium dioxide to produce the desired effect in the coated paper during the process involved to produce paper

Based on the process, the kaolin market has been segmented into include water-washed, air float, calcined, de laminated, and surface-modified & unprocessed. The growth of the water-washed segment can be attributed to increase in demand for ceramics from the building  & the construction industry is among the most significant factors projected to drive the water-washed kaolin market, as this kaolin is majorly used in the manufacture of ceramic products. Advantage of using the water-washed process in the production of hydrous kaolin as this process helps to retain water in the clay for about 12%-14%.
