The global Calcium Carbonate market has reached around 8700 thousand tonnes in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.49% during the forecast period until 2035. Currently, Belgium is the highest exporter of Calcium Carbonate. Minerals Technologies Inc. holds the highest capacity and exclusively operates in more than 15 countries namely China, India, US, and others.
Calcium Carbonate generally exists in rocks as the mineral calcite and aragonite. For industrial purposes, calcium carbonate is obtained from mining or quarrying. It can also be synthesized by combining carbon dioxide with a calcium hydroxide solution. Calcium Carbonate is an odorless white powder which is non-toxic in nature. Calcium carbonate can be generally seen in the form of chalk in classrooms. Calcium carbonate is essential to the construction sector. It is employed as a component of cement and as a standalone building material. It helps to manufacture mortar that holds together tiles, rubber products, roofing tiles, concrete slabs, and stones. Calcium Carbonate is employed as a filler in paints and pigments. Furthermore, it provides paper that vivid and bright look while providing smoothness to paper sheets. Other applications of calcium carbonate include paints, pigments, baking powder, wine, dough, plastics, adhesives, sealants, and more.
Due to its paper-brightening, light scattering, and ink retaining properties, the demand of Calcium Carbonate is majorly consumed by the Paper and Pulp industry which is driving the Calcium Carbonate demand on a global level. The demand for paper in other sectors, such as packaging and tissue paper is driving the Calcium Carbonate market on a global level. Calcium carbonate is used in the construction industry as a filler in concrete to improve its toughness and texture and to refine metals for use in building applications which further swells up the Calcium Carbonate demand. In 2021, this industry consumed approximately 53% of the market. Calcium Carbonate consumption is expected to reach around 16150 thousand tonnes by 2035.
The region of Asia Pacific demands the most significant volume of Calcium Carbonate. in the coming years, the expenditure on infrastructure development calls for Calcium Carbonate as a raw material. Additionally, it is projected that demand for paints, coatings, and automobiles would rise, which will eventually result in higher calcium carbonate consumption. Although, the highest volume globally is exported by Belgium, a European Country.
Based on the end-user industry, the Calcium Carbonate market is segmented into sectors like Paper and Pulp, Paints & Coatings, Construction, Plastic, and others. However, the Paper and Pulp Industry is the biggest end-user market of Calcium Carbonate. The paper pulp employs calcium carbonate as a filler, which is also used as a coating pigment. Its addition improves the paper's brightness and opacity. It has been observed that there was an overall slide dip of around 4% in the year 2020 in the consumption of Calcium Carbonate due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The objective of the Study:
•To assess the demand-supply scenario of Calcium Carbonate, which covers the production, demand, and supply of Calcium Carbonate around the globe.
•To analyze and forecast the market size of Calcium Carbonate.
•To classify and forecast the Global Calcium Carbonate market based on end-use and regional distribution.
•To examine global competitive developments such as new capacity expansions, mergers & acquisitions, etc., for the Calcium Carbonate market.
To extract data for the Global Calcium Carbonate market, primary research surveys were conducted with Calcium Carbonate manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, wholesalers, and Traders. While interviewing, the respondents were also inquired about their competitors. Through this technique, ChemAnalyst could include manufacturers that could not be identified because of the limitations of secondary research. Moreover, ChemAnalyst analyzed various segments and projected a positive outlook for the Global Calcium Carbonate market over the coming years.
ChemAnalyst calculated Calcium Carbonate demand around the globe by analyzing the historical data and demand forecast, which was carried out considering the production of raw materials to produce Calcium Carbonate. ChemAnalyst sourced these values from industry experts and company representatives and externally validated them by analyzing the historical sales data of respective manufacturers to arrive at the overall market size. Various secondary sources, such as company websites, association reports, annual reports, etc., were also studied by ChemAnalyst.
