The U.S. zeolite market size was worth USD 583.1 million in 2022 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.9% during the forecast period.

The U.S. has seen a compelling rise in product demand with lucrative opportunities for market players owing to the thriving use of the product in several markets. These include animal feed, odor control, and soil conditioner applications.

Zeolites are versatile materials used for various purposes, including gas absorption, desiccation, wastewater cleaning, and water purification. The formation of natural zeolite deposits in the U.S. are linked to the modification of volcanic tuffs in saline, alkaline, and open hydrologic systems. The deposits are found in states including Arizona, Idaho, California, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Oregon, Utah, and Wyoming. Moreover, the increasing investment in research & development for synthetic solutions in the detergents industry is accelerating the product offering in the consumer goods industry, which is expected to drive the market growth.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the market. The market has experienced a decline in demand due to reduced industrial activities. Zeolites are commonly used in various industries, including construction, agriculture, and healthcare. However, with the lockdowns and social distancing measures in place, many industries have been forced to shut down or operate at reduced capacity. Additionally, global supply chain disruptions have made it difficult for zeolite producers to acquire raw materials and transport their products to customers. Despite the challenges, the market is expected to recover gradually as the world adapts to the new normal.


Emerging Demand for Phosphate-free Detergents from End-use Industry to Generate Lucrative Opportunities

Zeolites have made a significant impact on the usage capability. Despite silicates, soda ash, and sodium sulfate challenges, they are gaining traction as the primary builder in laundry detergents. In response to environmental concerns, detergent manufacturers are focusing on eliminating phosphates from their products, which is expected to increase the product uptake.

Furthermore, the U.S. zeolite market share is also picking up speed in cleanser applications attributed to the product’s ecological, economic, and production benefits. The detergent manufacturers face competition that forces them to use less expensive raw materials and production methods. This is expected to propel the product demand over the forecast period.


Rising Demand from the Construction Segment to Propel Market Growth

Zeolite reinforces the hardness of cement in the long haul. It substitutes customary Portland concrete for making it sulfate-safe and preventing crack formation. Apart from sulfate and erosion opposition, the product diminishes the chromium level in concrete and cement. It also works on synthetic opposition in saltwater applications and opposes submerged consumption. High infrastructure spending, quick industrialization, and growing government interest in new projects are anticipated to drive the development in the U.S.

Threat of Substitution as a Catalyst may Limit the Product Adoption

The product is utilized in a number of applications. However, the availability of other substitutes might restrain the market expansion. The rising water treatment process for dealing with water refinement and wastewater is anticipated to surge the product demand. In certain cases, chemical mixtures such as metals & enzymes act as an option in contrast to molecular sieves catalysts, which may hamper the market growth. In addition, high transportation costs associated with the product owing to fluctuating fuel prices, may impede market expansion over the forecast period.


By Type Analysis

Based on type, the market is segmented into natural and synthetic.

Synthetic segment holds the major share of the U.S. market due to growing consumer awareness toward a clean environment. The products help in high-quality climate cordial detergent manufacturing, which helps to drive the product demand. The U.S. zeolite market growth can also be credited to detergent builders' ability to prevent foreign particle deposition and high dirt removal efficiency.

By Application Analysis

Based on application, the U.S. market from the natural segment is categorized into wastewater treatment, animal feed, soil remediation, construction & building materials, and others. The synthetic product application includes detergents, catalysts, and absorbents.

The U.S. market experienced a significant recovery from pandemic in 2022 owing to sustained demand from the animal feed segment coupled with favorable government policies. The market is expected to experience healthy growth over the next decade.

Due to its low abrasiveness and high dispersibility, the synthetic product is in high demand. The growing demand for builders in detergent owing to their enhanced cleaning properties is expected to spur the market share.
