Large volumes of talc are consumed by the ceramics, paper, plastics and paint industries, while pyrophyllite is utilized mainly in the production of electric insulators, refractories, ceramic products and in glass.

China ranked the 1st country in the world in terms of pyrophyllite and talc output volume in 2013; the country’s market share totaled almost 30% in that year. India and Brazil were the world’s second and third largest manufacturers, respectively.

The demand for pyrophyllite and talc is higher across the emerging countries rather than in the developed ones.
