Calcium Carbonate Market To Grow Owing To Rising Demand From Pulp, Paper And Plastic Industries Till 2022 | Million Insights

Global Calcium Carbonate Market is classified on the basis of product type, applications, and geography. Calcium carbonate is a carbonic salt of calcium and chemical compound with the formula CaCO3. It is a white, odourless powder or colourless crystals. Practically insoluble in water. It occurs extensively in rocks world-wide.

Calcium carbonate is the most widely used mineral in the paper, plastics, paints and coatings industries both as a filler and a coating pigment owing to its special white colour. In the paper industry it is valued globally for its high brightness and light scattering characteristics, and is used as an inexpensive filler to make bright opaque paper. Calcium carbonate is critical to the construction industry, both as a building material and as an ingredient of cement.

In addition, it is used extensively as an effective dietary calcium supplement, antacid, phosphate binder, or base material for medicinal tablets. It also is found on many grocery products such as baking powder, toothpaste, dry-mix dessert mixes, dough, and wine. Calcium carbonate is the active ingredient in agricultural lime, and is used in animal feed.

The factors that propel the growth of the Calcium Carbonate Market include increasing demand and wide range of applications. In addition, substantial growth of the pulp and paper and plastic industries across the globe fuels the growth of the market. Moreover, the growing employment of calcium carbonate in the rubber and pharmaceutical industries owing to its remarkable chemical and physical properties also drive the market growth.

On the other hand, there are also factors that may hamper the growth of the market such as health hazards associated with calcium carbonate. Calcium Carbonate Market is classified on the basis of product type asGround Calcium Carbonate (GCC) and Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC).

Ground calcium carbonate (GCC) is a common sedimentary rock composed primarily of the calcium carbonate mineral, calcite (CaCO₃). It is formed either by direct crystallization from water or by the accumulation of sea animal shells and shell fragments. Itis used in various end-user industries such as adhesives and sealants, construction, environment, agriculture, pharmaceuticals, paints, inks and coatings, paper, plastic and rubber.

Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC) is synthetic calcium carbonate. It is white ultra-fine crystalline powder having consistent particle size distribution. It is produced by precipitating a calcium salt out of a solution under defined conditions. PCC is used in pharmaceuticals, paper, paints, inks, plastic and adhesives industry.

Calcium Carbonate Market is classified on the basis of applications as paper, plastic, building & construction and others (pharmaceutical, agriculture, etc.). Calcium Carbonate Market is classified on the basis ofgeography as North America, Latin America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific, Japan and Middle East and Africa.

The North American region consists of the U.S., and Canada. Latin America region consists of Mexico and Brazil. The Western European region consists of Germany, Italy, France, England and Spain. The Eastern European region consists of Poland and Russia. Asia Pacific region consists of China, India, ASEAN, Australia & New Zealand. The Middle East and Africa region consists of GCC, South Africa and North Africa.

In case of geographical region, Asia Pacific is projected to account a dominant share of the Calcium Carbonate Market. The key factor that attributes to the growth of this region is owed to the noteworthy rise in number of paper mills and growth of the plastic sector. In addition, Asia Pacific is estimated to be the fastest growing market, particularly in China and India, on account of rapid industrial expansion over the forecast period.

Some of the key players that fuel the growth of the Calcium Carbonate Industry include Huber Engineered Materials, Maruo Calcium Co. Ltd., Great Lakes Calcium Corp., Excalibar Minerals, Okutama Kogyo Co.Ltd., Mississippi Lime Co., Imerys, Solvay S.A., Omya Ag, Shiraishi Kogyo Kaisha Ltd., Schaefer Kalk GMBH & Co. KG, and Minerals Technologies Inc.
