The global active calcium silicate market size was valued at USD 311.6 million in 2021, is projected to reach USD 425.2 million by 2030, and is expected to expand at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 5.11% during the forecast period, 2021–2030. The growth of the calcium silicate market is attributed to the growing usage of the ceramic industry.

Active Calcium Silicate Market Outlook

Calcium silicate is a chemical compound that is composed of three raw materials including sodium silicate, limestone, and hydrochloric acid. Sodium silicate reacts with calcium sulfate under specified and controlled conditions to produce the required structure and surface of active calcium silicate. Calcium silicate is considered a safe alternative to asbestos in high-temperature insulation applications. Calcium silicate provides high weather resistance, acts as an anticaking agent thereby preventing the formation of lumps, and increases the calcium content in the body which makes it suitable for application in the pharmaceutical and food industries. Calcium silicate is naturally found in limestone. Industrial equipment and grade piping are fabricated from active calcium silicate. Calcium silicate exhibits excellent thermal shock resistance and low thermal conductivity, which makes it ideal for industrial high-temperature insulation. Moreover, it is sold in the form of blocks, boards, and powder which is utilized in technical applications in the oil & gas, construction, and automotive industries. Calcium silicate possesses several properties including lower particle size, bulk density, high surface area, and good moisture control.

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 outbreak has put a lot of strain on a few hospital institutions and pushed major market players to their limits. Healthcare professionals were responsible for almost 10% of global COVID-19 infections in July 2020, according to the World Health Organization. Every health resource is being used to reduce its effect and respond to this global public health disaster. Chemical and materials companies are expected to transition from recovering to flourishing, depending on the economic conditions. Moreover, the stringent regulations pertaining to the permissible exposure limit of the product and unfavorable conditions rising due to the COVID-19 pandemic are the major restraints, which are hampering the market expansion.

Market Dynamics

The report presents a complete market overview, and market dynamics by focusing on the current market trends, existing drivers, growth opportunities, and emerging challenges that shape the outcome or overall performance of the market during the forecast period, 2022 to 2030.

Active Calcium Silicate Market by Dynamics

Major Drivers:

Rising product demand from the construction industry

The research report finds that the rising demand from the construction industry is expected to drive market growth. The global construction industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 4% during the forecast period and is anticipated to surpass USD 10.6 trillion by 2023. The active calcium silicate market is expected to grow rapidly over the forecast period, due to the rising product demand in the construction of infrastructure and new buildings. However, high exposure of active calcium silicate to human beings can cause health risks including throat itching, skin eruptions, and eye redness.

Existing Restraints:

Stringent environmental regulations and the high cost of the product

The stringent environmental regulations are projected to hamper the market growth. The government applies stringent regulations to the construction of new buildings and the materials used in the construction. Regulatory standards laid down by several regulatory bodies including OSHA, NIOSH, and EAPFP are expected to hinder the market expansion. These safety laws on building construction have been followed at a rapid pace on the interior surface for protection against fire hazards. OSHA has led down standards for permissible exposure limits to avoid severe human health and safety issues. These regulations are projected to incur additional expenses which will add to the manufacturing costs, and thus it will act as a challenge.

Market Opportunities:

Increasing government spending for better safety standards and construction initiatives

The increasing government spending on better safety standards and construction initiatives is anticipated to create lucrative opportunities for key market players. The increasing R&D investments to enhance the fire resistance and non-combustibility characteristics to widen its application in the fire protection industry are anticipated to further drive the global market growth during the forecast period. Moreover, the rising concerns regarding inactive fire insurance and burns in chemical industries have further created opportunities for manufacturers of active calcium silicate.

According to the CEO of the World Cement Association, an industry trade organization, by utilizing advanced technology, cement manufacturers have consistently increased the energy efficiency of the kilns used to heat and process the raw materials. The increasing energy efficiency lowers CO2 emissions and cut down on fuel usage. As per the research, cement manufacturers are undertaking a variety of changes. Manufacturers combine cement powder with gravel and sand, then add water sparking a series of chemical processes that transform the pasty mass into rock-hard solid to manufacture concrete. The manufacturing of cement is an exothermic reaction that releases hydroxide and calcium ions and generates calcium silicate hydrate. The hydration of tricalcium silicates in cement is a reaction that gives the synthetic rock its strength. Calcium is similarly strengthened by a similar reaction with dicalcium silicate. Major companies in the market are emphasizing construction and manufacturing application products with fire protection and insulation as the key aspect.
