The global calcium carbonate market size was valued at $xx Billion with a significant CAGR of xx% during the forecast period. Calcium carbonate is used in dietary supplement, plastic industries, construction, metalloids, paper, minerals and additive for PVC. Industries related to construction, building and paper are providing various opportunities to the global calcium carbonate market. Kaolin is replaced by calcium carbonate in the industry of paper. Increase in focus towards loading of mineral in paper, initiatives by government for the growth of paper industry in Middle East are the drivers that are projecting the development of calcium carbonate market. The factors that may hinder the growth of global calcium carbonate market are the concerns regarding the use of calcium carbonate as supplements for diet and threats for environment.
In the packaging industry, calcium carbonate is used for the rigid packing. Calcium carbonate is used in pharmaceuticals as a constituent for preparing the antacids. For preparing medicine, calcium carbonate acts as an effective neutralizer, which have capsule shells and inert filling. In paper industry, calcium carbonate is on demand and has experienced a substantial rise in paper production and is expected to increase the growth of global calcium carbonate market. For the production of paper, ground calcium carbonate and precipitate calcium carbonate is used. Ground calcium carbonate provides abrasion and stiffness to rubber products. Acrylic and silicon based sealants are produced from ground calcium carbonate. Usage of precipitated calcium carbonate in papers are useful for brighter papers and better printing surfaces. Opacity and enhanced gloss are the application of PCC. Global precipitated calcium carbonate market are experiencing the growth in the segment of uncoated papers.
The main factor that is driving the growth of calcium carbonate market is awareness for personal hygiene. Developing markets of China, India and Brazil are experiencing the growth in awareness for personal hygiene. Increasing literacy, standard of living, consumption of tissue and paper are the factors that plays a major role in the growth of calcium carbonate market. Increase in tissue papers use for beauty practices and personal hygiene is fueling demand for the calcium carbonate market.
Global calcium carbonate market is segmented into product, application and region. Based on product, calcium carbonate market is divided into ground calcium carbonate (GCC) and precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC). PCC is the rapidly growing type of calcium carbonate worldwide. On the basis of application, market is divided into plastic, paper, rubber, paint, construction & building, sealants & adhesives and much more.
