The global calcium carbonate market size is expected to be valued at USD 34.28 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., registering a 5.7% CAGR during the forecast period. Apart from being used in the construction, paper, and plastic industries, calcium carbonate also finds application as a dietary supplement, an additive for PVC, and in metalloids and minerals.
Demand for calcium carbonate from the paper industry has witnessed a significant rise in recent years, signifying an increase in paper production, and this trend is likely to continue over the upcoming years as well. While precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) and ground calcium carbonate are both used for the production of paper, the former remains the favored material owing to the operational flexibility it renders.
Asia Pacific is estimated to be the fastest and largest growing market for calcium carbonate on a global level, backed by rapid growth of the paper and plastics industries. Demand in the region is likely to be propelled by factors such as rise in paper production, establishment of new paper mills, and increase in mineral loadings of paper to cut down pulp usage.
Establishment of on-site production facilities, especially for supplying high-quality PCC to paper mills, is a key strategy adopted by leading market participants. Product development is also of prime importance in the industry. Notable players in the industry include Mineral Technologies Inc.; Omya; Parchem Specialty & Fine Chemicals; and Imerys Pigments.
