Kyanite, a rock mineral found in sedimentary and metamorphic rocks is used across various industries such as railway, jewelry, automotive, manufacturing, and other industries owing to its hardness and heat resistance. Kyanite is most commonly applied as a component for the manufacture of ceramics, glass products, cement, refractories, electricals, gemstones, jewelry ornaments, and electronic insulators. In addition to this, the kyanite market acts as a supplier to the mullite market since mullite is the calcified and decomposed form of kyanite. Due to the abundance of kyanite reserves, high production levels of kyanite, and its extensive application in a few industries, it can be said that the kyanite market will experience growth over the span of the next few years.

The use of kyanite in refractories and ceramics and the large quantity of kyanite reserves are the key factors driving demand for the global kyanite market.

Due to its high resistance, strength, and iron content, most of the kyanite and mullite manufactured are used in the manufacture of refractories. According to the mineral commodity survey conducted by the US Government in 2022, approximately 90% is utilized as a refractory manufacturing component. The expansion property of kyanite assists in the maintenance of the volume level of the end product in the refractory manufacturing process. In addition to this, kyanite is also used in the manufacture of cutting wheels, grinding wheels, other abrasive products, and ceramics such as bathroom equipment. Apart from this, the kyanite reserves are sufficient enough to meet the global demand of the kyanite market. These kyanite reserves are largely concentrated in the USA and India. Therefore, considering these factors it can be estimated that the global kyanite market will expand to attain a larger market size in the forecast period.

The impact of COVID-19 output has slowed down the expansion of the global kyanite market.

The consequences of the pandemic years ranging from 2019 to 2021 have taken a toll on the global kyanite market due to the drop in the production and mining activities related to kyanite. In addition to this, China is one of the greatest contributors to the kyanite production market and as the source of origin of the coronavirus, the economy of China has suffered significant losses. The amount of kyanite manufactured by China and other countries in the last two years was relatively lower compared to its past performance. For instance, the national output of kyanite production in the USA decreased from 91,300 tonnes in 2019 to 67,100 tonnes in 2022 as a result of the closure of mining operations due to the lockdown.

Key Developments

  • In December 2022, a new Kyanite mine in Nagpur city of India came into operation under the Government mining undertaking, Maharashtra State Mining Corporation Ltd., as per a report given by the Indian Ministry of Mines.
  • In March 2022, the Indian Government announced the opening of new Kyanite mines. The national demand for kyanite was higher than the supply of kyanite which led to the import of kyanite. Therefore, to reduce the import level, the Government took this measure.

Asia Pacific region is expected to continue having a prominent share and increase its market size in the global kyanite market.

The countries in the Asia Pacific geographic segment have a large share of the world’s kyanite reserves, especially India. The southern part of India is known for holding the majority of the world’s kyanite reserves. Due to this, the production and mining activities in India are high leading to a large contribution to the kyanite market. For instance, kyanite production in India amounted to 70,000 tonnes in India. According to the Indian Bureau of Mining, the remaining reserves of Kyanite in India amounts to approximately 104.29 million tonnes. Pavri Kyanite Mines, Maharashtra State Mining Corporation Ltd., and Mohammad Akram Rasheed are some of the leading Kyanite manufacturers in India. Apart from India, countries like China, Nepal and Vietnam have large kyanite reserves. Therefore, considering the abundance of kyanite reserves and heavy kyanite manufacturing activities in the Asia-Pacific region, it can be anticipated that the Asia-Pacific kyanite market shall continue to expand over the forecast period.
