Calcium oxalate belongs to derivatives class of compounds and dicarboxylic acid. It is a organic compound which contains two carboxylic acid group. Calcium oxalate is a moderately acidic compound based on its pKa and is soluble in water. It is present in a number of food items such as sweet potato, caraway, ginkgo nuts, and taro, which makes calcium oxalate as one the potential biomarker for the consumption of the food products. Calcium oxalate (in archaic terminology, oxalate of lime) is a calcium salt of oxalate and its forms are white or colorless. It is one of the major constituents of human kidney stones and is found in beerstone, a scale that forms on containers used in breweries.

As per Growth Market Reports industry analyst Partha Paul, “The global calcium oxalate market is anticipated to witness significant growth during forecast period 2020-2027 as calcium oxalate is finding multiple applications in the production of oxalates and the separation of rare earth metals while the manufacturing of ceramics holds a significant portion of the whole application segment. With prominent manufacturers offering highly pure (99.99%) forms of calcium oxalate, the global market is anticipated to snowball maximum revenue during the forecast period”.

Key Takeaways from Study

  • The global calcium oxalate market is consolidated in structure with the presence of a few large-scale manufacturers and some small-scale players. Major manufacturers Hefei Asialon Chemical and Thermo Fisher Scientific accounted for over 33.1% and 8.5% market share in 2019.  
  • Asia Pacific accounts for a major market share of the global calcium oxalate market, with China being a key manufacturing hub for calcium oxalate. Asia Pacific accounts for a share of 64.2% within the global calcium oxalate market.
  • The market in Asia Pacific is estimated to expand at a substantial CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period owing to increasing investments for the expansion of the chemical industry and the presence of major chemical producing countries, such as China and India in the region.
  • In the purity segment, purity 99% & above sub-segment garnered the maximum share attributed to the fact that oxalic acid with high concentration is preferred in end use applications due to less presence of impurities. Moreover, high concentrations of calcium oxalate are slightly hygroscopic, which makes it useful in preparation of oxalates.
  • Based on applications, the ceramic glazes segment accounted for 78.9% share of the market in 2019 and is projected to expand at a substantial CAGR during the forecast period.
  • Calcium oxalate is naturally found in marbles and limestones and most of the low purity calcium oxalate is used in the production of ceramic glazes, which in turn, boosts the growth of the segment.
