The global calcium carbonate market size was valued at USD 89.5 million in 2020 and is anticipated to expand at a substantial CAGR during the forecast period, 2021–2028. The growth of the market is attributed to increasing adoption of calcium carbonate to enhance the properties of polymeric materials.

Calcium Carbonate Market summary

 Calcium carbonate is a chemical compound that is white in color and non-toxic. It is found in rocks as calcium and calcite crystals, and in eggs, snail skins, mussels, and pearls. The active component in agricultural limestone is calcium carbonate, which is formed when calcium ions in saltwater combine with carbonate ions to form limescale. It is used in medicine as a calcium supplement or as an antacid, but excessive use can be harmful, causing metabolic alkalosis and digestive problems.

It is a major component of chalk, limestone, and marble. Digging or mining are used to obtain calcium carbonate for use in industrial operations. Precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) and ground calcium carbonate (GCC) are common types of the chemical compound. PCC contains small and regulated particle sizes, whereas GCC has a powdery-like texture with varying particle sizes. Calcium carbonate is widely utilised as a filler in the paper and paperboard industries due to its high brightness and light reflecting characteristics. It is also utilised in the acrylic and coatings industry as a coating material.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities

  • The emergence of innovative chemical, biomedical, and commercial applications is driving the market growth.
  • Growing use of calcium carbonate in construction industry as a raw material for the manufacturing of bonds, mortars, and concrete is anticipated to spur the growth of the market.
  • Environmental risks associated with mining limestone and calcium carbonate issues are expected to hamper the overall industry expansion.
  • Increasing production of calcium carbonates owing to expanding applications is expected to bring lucrative opportunities for industry players during the forecast period.
