Increasing adoption of low expansion minerals in foundries and refractories will positively impact on the pyrophyllite ore business outlook. Given its ability to limit wear and tear on molds as well as machinery in order to handle wet and dry products without the need for calcining, pyrophyllite is ideally deployed in various types of refractories. Due to its low expansion attributes, the mineral expands less on heating in comparison to other refractory materials. It showcases a second expansion-lowering mechanism, hence pyrophyllite-refractory clay combinations potentially offer excellent volume resistance and stability to deformation at high temperatures.

Additionally, various derivatives of pyrophyllite are widely used to make foundry washes as they offer lowered bulk density, thermal conductivity, and reversible thermal expansion.  Rising adoption of refractory and foundry minerals in the production of fire bricks, mould structures, coatings of fired ceramic bricks, and castables will further augment the pyrophyllite ore industry.

Adverse impacts on human health to restrain pyrophyllite ore market demand

The long-term exposure to pyrophyllite-mixed dust has resulted in the rising burden of pneumoconiosis among miners, and other industrial workers and individuals engaged in artistic carving. The inhalation of high concentrations of pyrophyllite dust (P-dust) may also cause mechanical irritation and discomfort. These factors are likely to restrict the industry expansion.
