Global Calcium Sulfate Market Projected to Exceed US$ 338.54 billion by 2033: Insights into Market Expansion and Key Drivers

Calcium Sulfate Market Calcium Sulfate Market

In 2023, the calcium sulfate industry is expected to be worth US$ 266.84 billion, and by 2033, it is anticipated to reach US$ 338.54 billion. Calcium sulfate sales are anticipated to increase at a CAGR of 4.1% over the forecast period.

With a melting point of 1,400°C, calcium sulfate is an odorless, white, crystalline powder. It exists in nature as a powder that is both hydrated and anhydrous. In addition to selenite, satin, light spar, terra alba, and satinite, calcium sulfate can also exist in other forms. Plaster of Paris is (POP) made when calcium sulfate loses a certain amount of water molecules when heated.

POP changes into a hard mass when water is added and this mass is used to make plaster casts, wall plasters, and other things. In addition, calcium sulfate is used as a drying agent in chemical labs, as a coating agent in the paper industry, as a color pigment in paints, and as a soil conditioner in the agriculture sector.

The key reason propelling the growth of the global calcium sulfate market is the rise in the usage of calcium sulfate in construction products, including rapid setting types of cement, plaster of Paris, and wall plasters. Also, it is frequently used in dental offices as a tool for creating casts or dental impressions, which supports market expansion.

The demand for calcium sulfate, which is used as a surface sizing agent and a pigment to create coated paper with high brightness and whiteness, is being driven by the expanding pulp and paper industry. Additionally, the market is anticipated to expand at a faster rate since there is an increasing need for calcium sulfate as a calcium supplement that is essential for cell and bone growth.

The market is also anticipated to rise as a result of an increase in the usage of calcium sulfate as a desiccant and an inactive component in medicinal medications. Potential development prospects for market expansion are anticipated to come from the rapidly expanding applications across several end-use sectors and the rising demands from emerging nations.

Given the increasing demand for calcium sulfate in emerging nations like China and India, the Asia-Pacific region represented the maximum market share for calcium sulfate in 2022 and is anticipated to keep that position going forward. Over the forecast period, China is anticipated to retain its supremacy in the calcium sulfate market. This is a result of the growing construction industry in the country. The demand for calcium sulfate as an additive, reducing, and drying agent is predicted to rise over the forecasted period and is proving to be a key driver for the calcium sulfate market growth in this region.
