Top 5 Vendors in the Global Bentonite Market from 2017 to 2021: Technavio

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global bentonite market report. This market research report also lists five other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Competitive vendor landscape

According to the research analysis, the global bentonite market is expected to grow at a steady pace during the forecast period. Companies are focusing on mergers and acquisition to increase their market share and stay competitive in the global bentonite market. For instance, in March 2015, Wyo-Ben announced the acquisition of Sharewell HDD’s Thunderstorm, a product line of mud mixing and cleaning systems.

The global bentonite market is expected to grow during the forecast period because of the growing use in applications like foundry sand. Foundry sand accounted for the largest share, of 34% of the market in 2016. Bentonite clay is used in the manufacture of molding sand and also as mold sealing material in paste form.

“In terms of geography, APAC is the major contributor to the market for bentonite. The demand for bentonite is coming from various end-user industries including iron ore, pet litter, and civil engineering,” says Mahitha Mallishetty, a lead metals and minerals analyst from Technavio.
