Calcium carbonate (CaCO3) is a white-colored, odorless inorganic compound found naturally in limestone, chalk, and marbles. It is extracted by mining or quarrying and produced by the sedimentation of rocks. It is usually found in powder or crystalline form and is extensively used for manufacturing paper, plastics, paints, coatings, and building materials. Apart from this, it is also used in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries as a calcium supplement, phosphate binder, antacid, and base material for medicinal tablets that assist in relieving heartburn, acid indigestion, and upset stomach. As a result, calcium carbonate is widely used in automotive, construction, paper, plastics, paints, and coatings industries.
The global calcium carbonate market is primarily being driven by significant growth in the construction industry. Calcium carbonate is widely used as a building material and an ingredient in cement, which is supporting the market growth. In line with this, rapid urbanization and increasing demand for new commercial and residential spaces are favoring the market growth. Furthermore, the widespread product utilization in the paper industry as a filler material in alkaline papermaking processes, due to its brightness and light scattering properties, is providing an impetus to market growth. Additionally, the incorporation of biocompatible calcium carbonate in therapeutic applications, such as drug delivery in cancer treatment and ultrasound image enhancement, is creating a positive outlook for the market. Moreover, the introduction of nano calcium carbonate with high porosity and biodegradable and biocompatible properties is propelling the market growth. Apart from this, the widespread product utilization in the agrochemical sector for manufacturing agricultural lime that is used as a fertilizer is providing a considerable boost to market growth. Other factors, including rising product demand in the packaging industry, increasing investments by several governments for infrastructural development projects, extensive research and development (R&D) activities in mining and processing of calcium carbonate, and rising product utilization in water and waste treatments applications, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
