Pune, India, May 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global bleaching clay market is set to gain traction from its increasing usage in the production of fats and oils for food applications. As per Statista, the worldwide consumption of palm oil during the period of 2019 to 2020 was 71.9 million metric tons, while soybean oil stood at 56.68 million metric tons. This information is given by Fortune Business Insights™ in a new study, titled, “Bleaching Clay Market, 2021-2028.” As per the study, the market size was USD 280.86 million in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 474.59 million by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.9% during the forecast period.

Disruptions in Supply-Demand Networks to Impact Growth amid COVID-19 Pandemic

The Food and Agriculture Organization stated that from 2018-19, the global production of oil crops was 612.3 million tonnes. But, it reduced to 584.3 million tonnes during 2019-2020. This occurred because of adverse weather conditions in multiple regions, as well as reduced yields. Also, the COVID-19 pandemic has tightened the supply and demand for oilseeds and other derived products. These factors may obstruct the demand for this type of clay in the upcoming years. We are offering authentic research reports to help you overcome this situation.

Drivers & Restraints-

Rising Usage in Vegetable Oil Production to Accelerate Growth

Fats and oils must be refined for removing impurities in order to use them in various food items. Fuller’s earth plays a vital role in making them safe for use. Asia Pacific is in the dominant position in terms of global fats and oils production. India is the world’s number one importer of vegetable oil. The country is expected to showcase a per capita consumption of 3.1% per annum by 2028. This factor is likely to boost the bleaching clay market growth in the near future. However, the production process of vegetable oil generates a large number of by-products, contaminants, and of organic solid waste. It may hinder growth.

Regional Insights-

Asia Pacific to Remain at the Forefront Fueled by Rising Crop Yields in Malaysia & Indonesia

Geographically, Asia Pacific earned USD 145.37 million in terms of revenue in 2020. The surging consumption of vegetable oils is the major factor contributing to the regional growth. Besides, the increasing growing crop yields in Indonesia and Malaysia would also spur the demand for this type of clays. North America, on the other hand, is set to remain in the second position because of the presence of a well-established refined and industrial edible oils industry.
