The global diatomite market size is expected to expand in the foreseeable future, according to the report, titled “Diatomite Market, 2022-2029” by Fortune Business Insights™. Diatomite is a siliceous sedimentary rock that is white and brittle. This rock is also known as Diatomaceous Earth and is a naturally occurring rock. The composition of this rock is 0.5 – 2% iron oxide, 2-4% Alumina diatoms, and 80 to 90% silica. They are formed as the remains of diatoms, which were hard-shelled protists. It is primarily used in mild abrasives, filtration aids, mechanical insecticides, metal polishes, porous packing for catalyst, filler, and other applications. This rock has a fine particle size and a low specific gravity which makes it ideal for use as a filter media.

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic led to a worldwide lockdown situation to control the spread of the virus. In this situation, activities such as mining or excavation were temporarily halted due to various regulations. Moreover, the supply of diatomite was erratic owing to difficulty in procuring the rock. As the use of this rock is primarily as a component in various household maintenance substances, its demand did not decline. Several end-user industries of this product experienced a shortage of the product due to hampered production activities. As lockdowns are lifted in various regions, it is expected that the production process shall resume to cater to the demand of the consumers.
