Assessing the COVID-19 Effect: Zeolites Manufacturers Find Opportunities During Pandemic, Driven by Potential Drug Delivery Applications

Wednesday, 01 July 2020 09:00 AM


Zeolites producers are investing extensively in bolstering manufacturing capacities in untapped markets to sustain growth through and after the end of the coronavirus pandemic.

ROCKVILLE, MD / ACCESSWIRE / July 1, 2020 / The coronavirus outbreak has impacted the worldwide demand for zeolites products. Lockdown orders and the consequent disruptions to supply chains will result in a slump within the zeolite market. Impacted end user verticals such as petroleum, detergent, and construction industries will hamper market growth in the near future.

The zeolites market is expected to expand at an sluggish 3% CAGR through the forecast period (2020-2030). However, research into the antiviral properties of zeolites is generating opportunities for new revenue streams in coronavirus prevention and treatment procedures. The zeolites market will witness strong resurgence after the pandemic owing to extensive industrial applications.

"The growing use of zeolites in the role of adsorbents in refrigeration setups is on the rise owing to easy availability and non-hazardous nature. Such industrial applications are gaining popularity driven by low thermal power requirements. Further, these systems do not emit CFCs aiding sustainability initiatives. These trends will support the zeolite market once the outbreak is under control," says the Fact.MR report.
