Calcium carbonate is a colorless, odorless, tasteless and crystalline carbonic salt of calcium. It is sourced from limestone rocks through mining and quarrying and can be commercially produced by the decomposition of limestone to carbon dioxide followed by re-carbonization. It is commonly available in grounded and precipitates variants, which are widely used in the manufacturing of papers, plastics, paints, rubbers and adhesives and as a mineral filler, whitening agent and alkalizing agent. In pharmaceutical products, calcium carbonate is used as a calcium supplement to improve bone health and as an antacid to relieve heartburn, acid indigestion and other digestive problems.
Significant growth in the paper industry across the globe is one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. Calcium carbonate is widely used in paper mills as a filler material in alkaline papermaking processes due to beneficial high brightness and light scattering properties. It is also used as a substitute for wood pulp, additives and minerals premium-quality paper and paperboard. Moreover, widespread product adoption for the manufacturing of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) packaging and light-weight automobile components, is providing a thrust to the market growth. In line with this, calcium carbonate is also used to produce hygiene-related products and as an extender and filler in paints. Additionally, various product innovations, such as the development of nano calcium carbonate with biodegradable and biocompatible properties, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. These nanoparticles are used as smart carriers to deliver genes, enzymes and therapeutic drugs. This, along with extensive infrastructural developments and the increasing product demand as a building material, is anticipated to drive the market further.
