Europe Calcium Chloride Market to Reach 844,580 Tons by 2032, Propelled by Considerable Growth in Processed Food Industry

April 11, 2023 | Chemical & Materials

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Europe Calcium Chloride Market Report by Application (De-Icing, Dust Control and Road Stabilization, Drilling Fluids, Construction, Industrial Processing, and Others), Product Type (Liquid, Hydrated Solid, Anhydrous Solid), Raw Material (Natural Brine, Solvay Process (By-Product), Limestone and HCL, and Others), Grade (Food Grade, Industrial Grade), and Country 2024-2032”, the Europe calcium chloride market size reached 729,100 Tons in 2023. Calcium chloride (CaCl2) is an inorganic salt that is commonly available in the form of granules, flakes and liquid. It can be synthesized from the chemical reaction between calcium carbonate (CaCO3) with hydrochloric acid (HCl) or can be mined directly from natural brine deposits, limestone, or seawater evaporation and crystallization. It is characterized by a white to off-white color, odorless and anhydrous nature, high water solubility, non-toxicity and non-flammability. As a result of its ability to absorb moisture from the air, it is often used as a desiccant. Calcium chloride is an effective de-icing agent that can melt snow and ice at lower temperatures, and is also relatively inexpensive compared to other de-icing agents and industrial chemicals. It is a versatile compound and thereby finds extensive applications in numerous end-use industries, such as food and beverage processing, oil and gas, and healthcare. 

Europe Calcium Chloride Market Trends:

The market in Europe is majorly driven by the escalating demand for de-icing agents due to the high volumes of snowfall across the region. In line with this, considerable growth in the processed food industry is resulting in the widespread usage of food additives and preservative ingredient in the production of numerous ready-to-eat (RTE) food products, which, in turn, is propelling the market. Moreover, the expanding number of construction and infrastructure development projects is leading to the rapid utilization of calcium chloride in concrete and cement production. Besides this, the rising product usage as a drilling fluid additive and completion fluid is leading to a higher product uptake across the oil and gas industry. The market is further driven by the augmenting product demand for the formulation of various drugs as well as intravenous solutions. Apart from this, the increasing use of pH balancers in swimming pools is creating lucrative market growth opportunities. Additionally, the increasing demand for safe drinking water is leading to rapid product utilization in wastewater treatment plants to reduce impurities and enhance mineral content, which is boosting the market. Some of the other factors contributing to the market include rapid urbanization and industrialization, continual technological advancements, rising demand for maintenance materials for haul roads in mining applications, and extensive research and development (R&D) activities. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach 844,580 Tons by 2032, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 1.65% during 2024-2032.
