Calcium Carbonate Market: Overview

Calcium carbonate is a crystalline carbonic salt of calcium that is tasteless, odorless, and colorless. It is obtained from limestone rocks by mining and quarrying, and it can be manufactured for use in the industry by converting limestone to carbon dioxide and then re-carbonizing it.

It is frequently offered in the grounded and precipitates forms, which are widely utilized as mineral fillers, whitening agents, and alkalizing agents as well as in the production of papers, plastics, paints, rubbers, and adhesives. Calcium carbonate is used in pharmaceutical products as an antacid to treat heartburn, acid reflux, and other digestive issues as well as a calcium supplement to strengthen bones.

Calcium Carbonate Market: Growth Drivers

Increasing preference for paper and paper-based packaging propel the market for calcium carbonate

Over the past few years, investment in the paper business has risen sharply. The filler used in biopolymer packaging materials is calcium carbonate. Currently, calcium carbonate predominates over other filler materials used in papermaking. The main driver of calcium carbonate's increased popularity is the demand for thicker, more vibrant paper. Paper packaging is frequently used by manufacturers because it gives consumers access to practical storage as well as aesthetically pleasing and portable packing. Moreover, this kind of packaging is also environmentally friendly.

It is produced utilizing recycled materials in a variety of sizes and shapes. Paper and paperboard, both of which are renewable resources, are used to make paper containers. Similar to wood, the raw material can be obtained from forests that are responsibly managed. It is naturally biodegradable and easily recyclable. As a result, it is projected that increased investment in the paper industry will fuel the global calcium carbonate market throughout the projection period.

Advantageous properties of calcium carbonate drive the market growth

Calcium carbonate has several beneficial properties, including a low electrolyte content, low abrasiveness, and a pH stabilizing effect, and it also aids in weather resistance, anticorrosion, and rheological properties. Calcium carbonate can be used as a filler in powder coating for high gloss coating products. In addition, the use of calcium carbonate lowered prices and created environmentally beneficial products, such as baby carriages and toys, which require low amounts of heavy metals. Furthermore, it improves the powder coating's properties by increasing the spray area and powder rate of the paint. Thus, the advantageous properties of calcium carbonate drive the market growth during the forecast period.

Calcium Carbonate Market: Restraints

Rising costs owing to the higher cost of transportation are expected to hamper market expansion

One of the most important elements influencing the calcium carbonate processor is the guaranteed availability of raw material in the needed quantity at any time. To ensure that the desired quantities are available, the manufacturing facility must be designed to the required scale, including a reserve capacity that may be used for production if technical issues arise.

To maintain supply reliability, a logistics system must be established that allows for the rapid transfer of supply from one production site to the others. Simultaneously, transportation expenses must be kept within economically reasonable ranges. The logistics expenses for calcium carbonate are approximately 25% of the selling price on average, however, they can vary greatly.

Various companies have recently raised the number of calcium carbonate goods available, as a rise in raw material transportation costs is one of the variables influencing pricing. The extra cost of carrying PCC from the manufacturing area to the paper mill, for example, raises the entire transportation cost. As a result, rising costs due to greater transportation costs function as a limiting factor for the global calcium carbonate market expansion.

Calcium Carbonate Market: Opportunities

The growing application of calcium carbonate from various end-use industries is expected to provide a lucrative opportunity for the market expansion

The growing application of calcium carbonate from various end-use industries is expected to provide a lucrative opportunity for market expansion. In recent, calcium carbonate has been majorly used in paper, plastic, paints & coatings, and adhesives & sealants industries. Moreover, the use of nanoscale calcium carbonate is possible in particular situations.

Researchers are interested in nano calcium carbonate, particularly for therapeutic uses. Materials made of calcium carbonate are biocompatible and biodegradable, making them perfect for use as a smart carrier for the delivery of medicines, enzymes, and genetic material. The use of these nanoparticles in therapeutic applications, such as antibacterial agents, gene delivery to specifically target cancer cells, and cancer medication delivery, is currently being studied. These prospective uses for calcium carbonate across a range of end markets are anticipated to open up attractive opportunities for market growth.

Calcium Carbonate Market: Segmentation

The global calcium carbonate market is segmented based on the type, application, and region

Based on type, the global market is bifurcated into Ground Calcium Carbonate (GCC) and Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC). The Ground Calcium Carbonate (GCC) segment is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period. An industrial mineral that is frequently utilized is ground calcium carbonate. It is utilized in paper and plastic fillers, as well as paints and coatings.

Additionally used in cement, GCC can be transformed into calcium hydroxide and calcium oxide (quick-lime) (slaked lime). It can be used to neutralize combustion fumes and raise the pH of soils or water. On the other hand, the Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC) segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The unique shape of PCCs enables them to function as functional additives in rubber, plastic, inks, paper, pharmaceutical, and nutraceutical applications, supporting the expansion of this market.

Based on application, the market is segmented into paper, plastic, paints & coatings, adhesives & sealants, and others. The paper segment is anticipated to hold the largest market share in 2021 and is expected to dominate over the forecast period. The paper pulp is filled with calcium carbonate, which is also used as a coating pigment. Its inclusion improves the paper's brightness and opacity.

The demand for paper in other sectors, such as packaging and tissue paper, was unaffected by the internet, although it did have an impact on the print media market. Manufacturers have been forced to increase production as a result of the current epidemic to meet the growing demand from consumers. For instance, Celulosa Argentina declared in August 2020 that it would be increasing its paper packaging production by 30%. Due to a boom in demand, the company concentrated on the food market. The e-commerce industry's expansion and rising tissue paper consumption are both expected to help the paper application category keep its dominance during the projected period.

Recent Developments:

  • In March 2021, Huber Engineered Materials and IMCD NV, a Dutch distributor of specialized chemicals and ingredients, agreed for Huber Engineered Materials to purchase the company and manufacturing facilities for IMCD NV's Nutri Granulations. For the nutraceuticals, food, over-the-counter, and pharmaceutical industries, Nutri Granulations develops food- and USP-grade calcium carbonate granulations.
  • In November 2020, to establish IMCD as the chosen distributor of IMERYS performance minerals products across the US and Canada, the mineral-based specialty solutions company IMERYS opted to expand its distribution relationship with IMCD.
