April 2023 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Calcium Carbonate Market Growth & Trends

The global calcium carbonate market size is expected to reach USD 74.64 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. It is expected to expand at a CAGR of 6.6% from 2023 to 2030. Calcium carbonate is a compound that is commonly found in rocks, such as limestone and dolomite. The product is extracted by quarrying or mining and is further processed to form precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) or ground calcium carbonate (GCC).

The product is extensively used in various applications including paper, paints and coatings, food, health-related products, and building and construction materials. The COVID-19 pandemic impacted both the production and consumption of calcium carbonate. However, the demand is high in the healthcare market and related industries, mainly in the paper industry due to rising concerns regarding personal hygiene, which is boosting the demand for tissue papers.

The global market is highly competitive owing to the presence of numerous established players in the industry that are integrated across the value chain. In January 2021, Audax Private Equity announced the completion of the sale of Gabriel Performance Products to Huntsman Corporation. The competitive scenario is intense for the market as major players have reported losses during the first half of 2020. For example, Mineral Technologies reported a loss of 14.44% and Imerys reported a loss of 15.3% in their revenue for Q2 2020.
