Traditionally, bentonite was used for oilwell and water-well drilling. Primarily bentonite was used to close borehole walls, to remove drill cuttings, and grease the cutting head. However, this clay is increasingly finding use in several other industries due to its bonding ability. Geography-wise, the global bentonite market is segmented into Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, and Rest of the World (World). At present, Asia Pacific is the largest consumer of bentonite, trailed by North America and Europe. Some of the top bentonite producing countries are China, India, Greece, and Turkey.
