Based on the type, the anhydride can be natural or synthetic. The synthetic type of anhydrite is extensively used in buildings & construction materials. It is a raw material required for the production of cement, plasters, and flooring.
It is used as a binder in plaster and cement due to its extremely shrinkage and swelling values. Furthermore, it is also used as a filler in the production of plastics and paper products. The synthetic anhydrite is used as a source of sulfur in the production of sulphuric acid. The global anhydrite market is segmented into soil treatment, construction, fertilizers, industrial applications, drying agents, and others.
The soil treatment accounts for around 35% of the market share and is likely to remain dominant owing to the lack of agricultural land and increasing food consumption demand. The increasing use of anhydrite in various other applications is expected to fuel the market growth further over the assessment period.
