Diatomaceous earth is a powder produced from diatomite, a sedimentary rock composed of the skeletal remains of single-cell aquatic plants called diatoms. As one diatom generation is replaced by another over millions of years, the skeletons began to collect on the sea bed and on the bottom of lakes to form diatomite deposits. Diatomite is dedicated to the purposes of filtration. The relatively inert silica structure with its numerous micropores gives remarkable properties when built into a filter cake for the filtration of liquids. Beer, wine, sugar syrups, fruit juices, antibiotics and industrial chemicals are examples of the number and variety of products that take advantage of the excellent filtering capability of Diatomite for both large and sub-micron particles.
The industry is concentration, the key brand include Imerys, EP Minerals, Showa Chemical, CECA Chemical (Arkema), Dicaperl, Diatomite CJSC, American Diatomite, Diatomite Direct, Jilin Yuan Tong Mineral, Chanye, Zhilan Diatom, Sanxing Diatomite, Shengzhou Xinglong Products of Diatomite, Shengzhou Huali Diatomite Products, Changbai Mountain filter aid and Qingdao Best diatomiteand so on. Among them, Imerys and EP Minerals are the leaders.
The leading companies own the advantages on better performance, more abundant product’s types, better technical and impeccable after-sales service. Consequently, they take the majority of the market share of high-end market. Looking to the future years, the slow upward price trend in recent years will maintain. As competition intensifies, prices gap between different brands will go narrowing. Similarly, there will be fluctuation in gross margin.
The industry is expected to remain innovation-led, with frequent acquisitions and strategic alliances adopted as the key strategies by the players to increase their industry presence. Market stays in mature period with a clear concentration. Meanwhile, optimize product mix and further develop value-added capabilities to maximize margins.
