Kyanite is a mineral that is used to make refractory goods such as mortars and bricks for use in high-temperature furnaces. It offers heat resistant qualities, making it an important material in the automobile and railroad industries.

The mineral is very difficult to facet due to its excellent cleavage and varying hardness, even within the same crystal. The hardness varies along its different axes. For example, it has a hardness of 4 to 4.5 when cut parallel to its long-axis and has a hardness of 6 to 7.5 when sliced perpendicular to its long-axis. Andalusite and sillimanite are polymorphous with Kyanite. These substances have the same chemical but distinct crystal systems.

Kyanite is widely used as an abrasive in semiconductors and insulators. During the projected period, rising demand for electronic and electrical items is likely to drive up demand for Kyanite.

Historic (2018 to 2022) Vs Forecast (2023 to 2033) Market Outlook for Global Kyanite

During the historical period from 2018 to 2022, the global Kyanite market has witnessed a CAGR of 1.6%. The reason behind this slow growth rate is attributed to the impact of COVID-19 pandemic on the global mining and mineral market, that shrunken the demand and extraction activities of related minerals.

As per the latest FMI analysis, the global market is anticipated to grow with a steady growth rate of 3.2% during the assessment period. The demand from electrical and electronics industry supported by its rising applications in jewellery, and automotive industries is set to drive the market.

According to FMI data, around 85 percent of Kyanite minerals consumption is for the production of refractories - materials capable of withstanding high temperatures, often in excess of 1,000 degrees Celsius. The iron and steel industry consumes 50 to 60 percent of all refractories globally. More examples include refractory forms, firebrick, and insulating brick.

Market Dynamics

Kyanite as an abrasive in electronics and electronics industries is elevating the market demand

The growing use of Kyanite as an abrasive in the electronic and electrical industries is propelling the market forward. Robotics and automation are rising trends in the electronics market, which has increased demand for insulating materials. The emergence of the digital economy and technological advancements have propelled the growth of the electrical and electronic industries, which is expected to fuel the worldwide Kyanite market.

Jewellery applications to create lucrative opportunities in market

Kyanite is increasingly being used in jewellery applications. Faceted Kyanite makes beautiful stone gemstones. These stones have variable hardness, and attractive colours. Their colours vary from greenish blue in daylight to purple under incandescent light. Today, many jewellery makers are marketing mineral stone made earning, pendants, and brooches.
