24 November 2:26 a.m., Silicon Valley, California - According to the new market research report, the global market for Calcium Carbonate is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% to reach US$32.2 billion by 2027 driven by improving construction activity and surging demand from various industries such as plastic, paper & pulp, packaging and automotive, post COVID-19. Calcium carbonate is extensively used as alkalizing agent, whitening agent and mineral filler in a broad spectrum of applications across several industries. The global calcium carbonate industry dynamics are closely linked to the trends in the paper, automotive, plastics, and construction industries, which are characterized by high degree of cyclicality. With the major end-use markets bearing the brunt of uncertainties on the global economic front amid the COVID-19, the impact is evident on the demand for calcium carbonate. Sharp drop in paper production, paints & coatings, plastics, adhesives & sealants, and other end-use verticals, is expected to negatively impact the prospects for Calcium Carbonate market during the current crisis period. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the paper industry took a severe beating with industry participants experiencing downtrend in paper consumption in educational, corporate and commercial end-use markets. Although new opportunities have emerged for the paper industry during the COVID-19 crisis in the form of food packaging products, personal hygiene paper products, corrugated packaging materials and medical specialty papers, the decline in traditional verticals continues to deter overall momentum.

Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3) is the principal inorganic mineral material primarily used as commercial and functional filler in paper, rubber, plastic, architectural materials, coatings and light chemicals among others. Demand for calcium carbonate in the paper industry is anticipated to be fueled by increasing production of bulkier and brighter paper for different applications. The market is anticipated to receive a major stimulus from expansion of these industries in key regions, primarily Asia-Pacific, coupled with strong growth of the e-retail and e-commerce industries, which depend heavily on packaging. Growing demand of plastics from different end-use industries such as electrical & electronics, packaging, and building and construction is likely to drive the consumption of calcium carbonate in the plastic industry.
Carbonate, when utilized in paints and coatings, can minimize the carbon footprint to significant levels, while maintaining the desired mechanical and optical properties. Biopolymers comprise an emerging area of interest for CaCO3 manufacturers. The use of biopolymers is gaining momentum across packaging and other sectors such as medical, consumer goods, textiles, and construction and building, as attention turns to reducing carbon emissions and minimizing impact on the environment. Calcium Carbonate provides a reliable material that can remineralize the desalinated water and make it suitable for drinking and agricultural purposes. Calcium Carbonate, when deployed in water treatment programs, act as pH buffer, helps improve taste and minimizes the need for chemical demand in municipal water networks.
