Calcium Carbonate is a chemical compound forms by three elements carbon, oxygen, and calcium. It is used as a active ingredient in agricultural lime, and is created when calcium ions in hard water react with carbonate ions creating lime scale. It is commonly used medicinally as a calcium supplement or as an antacid. It can be mainly found in geological, biological, and extraterrestrial sources. Calcium Carbonate is used in construction industry, blast furnace, oil industry, sugar industry, blackboard chalk, microporous films, paint industry, adhesives, sealants, and decorating fillers. It is also widely used in medical purpose as a key ingredient.
Growing paper industry, increasing volume of global paper consumption, rising global mineral loading levels of paper grades, steady demand from plastic industry, rise in the volume of global plastic production, growing building and construction industry are some of the major market drivers for the global calcium carbonate market.
Asia Pacific is the largest market, followed by North America. Emerging countries such as China and India are the leading nations in the Asia Pacific region. Ground Calcium Carbonate (GCC) is a growing segment due to its extensive use in non-traditional industries. Market forecast suggests that Calcium Carbonate (PCC) is expected to grow in the coming years as well. Europe is expected to show the moderate growth.
