According to the TDAP report, Japan is a potential market for

Pakistan. Pakistan’s export of talc to Japan in 2021 was $1.07 million

compared to Japan’s total import of $66 million from the world. The

average import price of talc in Japan is $541 per ton while Pakistan’s

export of talc powder to Japan is $356 per ton. The report said that

by capturing just 10 percent market share, Pakistan could increase

revenue by $2.26 million. The report pointed out that Germany is

the largest importer of talc and exports from Pakistan to the

European country are negligible. The average import price of talc in

Germany is $450 per ton. The report said that if Pakistan could gain

at least 5 percent market share, it could increase its export earnings

by about $3 million.

Thailand could be a potential export market for Pakistan

According to the report, Thailand could be a potential export market

for Pakistan as it imported 105,000 tonnes of talc in 2021 while

Pakistan exported only 3,000 tonnes. The local talc is yellow in color

and the demand for it is low, the report said. However, the

international market demands white talc which can only be obtained

by upgrading the talc industries through modern techniques.

Pakistan depends on the import of talc from Afghanistan and any

security problem in Afghanistan affects Pakistan’s talc exports.
