Global Feldspar Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.19% to reach US$2.902 billion in 2028 from US$2.037 billion in 2021.

Feldspar is a group of minerals that are primarily composed of aluminum, potassium, and sodium silicates. They are the most abundant minerals on the earth's crust, and are widely used in various industries due to their unique properties such as hardness, chemical stability, and resistance to weathering. The global feldspar market is a large and growing market, with applications across several industries such as ceramics, glass, and construction. The demand for feldspar is driven by its properties, which make it an important raw material for the manufacturing of various products.

Feldspar is primarily used in the ceramics industry, where it is used as a flux in the production of ceramic tiles, sanitary ware, and tableware. It is also used in the glass industry as a flux, and as filler in the production of glass fibers. In addition, feldspar is used in the construction industry as a raw material for the production of cement, and as filler in the production of asphalt and concrete. The global feldspar market is highly competitive, with several large players operating in the market. These players are focused on expanding their product offerings, and are investing in research and development to develop new and innovative products.


Growing demand from the ceramics industry- The ceramics industry is one of the largest consumers of feldspar, with feldspar being used as a flux in the production of ceramic tiles, sanitary ware, and tableware. The increasing demand for ceramic products in emerging economies, coupled with the growth of the construction industry, is driving the demand for feldspar. This trend is expected to continue in the coming years, fueling the growth of the feldspar market.

Increasing demand from the glass industry- Feldspar is also used in the glass industry as a flux, and as filler in the production of glass fibers. The growing demand for glass products, especially in the automotive and construction industries, is driving the demand for feldspar. The trend towards lightweight and energy-efficient materials is also driving the demand for feldspar in the glass industry.

Technological advancements- Advances in technology are leading to the development of new and innovative products that use feldspar. For example, feldspar-based coatings are being developed for use in solar panels, which could significantly increase their efficiency. Similarly, feldspar-based products are being developed for use in batteries and other electronic devices. These advancements are expected to drive the demand for feldspar in the coming years. The U.S. Department of Energy has been investing in the development of advanced materials for use in solar panels and other electronic devices. In a recent report, the department highlighted the potential of feldspar-based coatings to significantly increase the efficiency of solar panels, which could drive the demand for feldspar in the future.

Key developments.

  • In December 2020, Canadian uranium exploration company, Skyharbour Resources Ltd., announced that it signed a definitive agreement with Pitchblende Energy LLC and Valor Resources Ltd. to acquire 80% of the North Falcon Point Uranium Property located in the Athabasca Basin in Saskatchewan, Canada. The North Falcon Point Uranium Property is located in close proximity to several high-grade uranium deposits and has potential for both shallow and deeper high-grade mineralization. The North Falcon Point Uranium Property is located in the Athabasca Basin, which is known to contain high levels of feldspar. Feldspar is an important component in the geological formation of the basin, and its presence can impact the uranium mineralization in the area. The optional agreement allows Skyharbour to focus on its core uranium and feldspar projects while still retaining a significant interest in the North Falcon Point Property.

Based on end-use industry, the global feldspar market is expected to witness positive growth in ceramics segment.

Feldspar is a widely used mineral in the ceramics industry due to its excellent properties such as low thermal expansion, high chemical resistance, and good mechanical strength. As a result, ceramics is one of the largest end-use industries for feldspar. The demand for feldspar in the ceramics industry is driven by the increasing use of ceramics in various applications, such as building materials, electronic components, and tableware.

North America accounted for a significant share of the global feldspar market.

Based on geography, the global feldspar market is segmented into North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa and Asia Pacific. North America is one of the largest markets for feldspar, driven by the strong demand from the glass and ceramics industries. The United States is the largest producer of feldspar in the region, with significant deposits found in states such as North Carolina, Virginia, and California. In addition, Canada is also a significant producer of feldspar, with deposits found in Ontario and Quebec. According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the United States was the leading producer of feldspar in North America in 2020, with an estimated production of 620,000 metric tons. Additionally, Canada produced an estimated 210,000 metric tons of feldspar in the same year.
