Global Ulexite Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Ulexite is a rare, fibrous mineral found in evaporite deposits. It is often called TV rock because it can be used to make optical fibers for television and computer screens.


Ulexite is a mineral, which is also known as Ferroelectric Calcium Aluminum Silicate. It has a structure similar to that of tricalcium phosphate. Tricalcium phosphate can be converted into ulexite by heating it to about 400°C for about 30 minutes. Ulexite has the ability to store an electric charge and can be switched on and off with the help of voltage changes at very high frequencies (VHF).


Ulexite is a mineral, which is also called as yttriphonates. It has chemical formula CaAl2Si2O8(OH)2 and occurs in crystalline form with transparent crystals that are colorless, odorless, tasteless. They have a Mohs hardness of 5-1 and specific gravity of 2.69.

Application Insights:

The global ulexite market is segmented based on application into agriculture, glass and fiberglass, oilfield, ceramics, pulp and paper and others. The pulp and paper application segment accounted for the largest share in 2017. This can be attributed to growing demand for packaging materials from various end-use industries including food processing as well as medical sector. Moreover, growth of packaging industry across the globe is expected to augment demand over the forecast period.

Ulexite has wide applications in agriculture owing to its ability to enhance soil properties such as water retention capacity along with nitrogen fixation capability which aids plant growth by enhancing soil nutrition quality. It also helps improve fertility of land by increasing available nutrients such as sulfur (S) & nitrogen (N). These aforementioned factors are projected to increase product consumption in agricultural purposes over the forecast period thereby propelling its overall market growth during this time span.

Regional Analysis:

North America was the largest market for ulexite, accounting for a share of more than 30.0% in 2017 owing to the presence of major manufacturers such as Nippon Electric Glass Co., Ltd. and Corning Incorporated in this region. The demand is expected to increase further due to increasing oil & gas exploration activities in North America countries such as U.S.

In Asia Pacific, ulexite has been observed being used widely across industries including construction, automotive glass replacement, agriculture equipment manufacturing etc.

The ceramics sector is one of the significant sectors contributing towards economic growth.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the optical fiber industry for Ulexite as a core material for optical fibers is expected to be a key growth driver for the global Ulexite market over the forecast period.
  • Rising demand from the glass and ceramics industries is also anticipated to fuel market growth in the coming years.
  • Growing use of Ulexite in manufacturing television tubes, headlights, and other lighting applications is projected to boost market demand over the next few years.
  • Increasing awareness about benefits of using Ulexite as an alternative to traditional materials such as glass and plastic is likely to propel market growth in near future.
