The global calcium carbonate market to grow at a CAGR of 6.20% during the period 2016-2020.
Global Calcium Carbonate Market 2016-2020, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
One trend which will have a positive impact is the growing market for nano-calcium carbonate in plastics and rubber sectors. Innovative and advanced technology allows the synthesis of calcium carbonates as nanoparticles with a large surface area. Each particle is surface coated with a modifier such as organic coupling agents and fatty acid to improve dispersion and compatibility with the polymer matrix.
According to the report, a key growth driver is the growing use of calcium carbonate as an industrial filler. The most abundant sources of carbonate mineral fillers are the reserves of white marble. The most important attributes of carbonate fillers that decide their usefulness in industrial applications are particle size, brightness (whiteness), and chemical purity. Fillers were earlier used to substitute costlier materials in paint or polymers in rubbers or plastics. Currently, they are being used to add stiffness, color, opacity or other required qualities to a product.
Further, the report states that one challenge that could hamper market growth is the diminishing limestone reserves and stringent regulations enforced by governments.
