DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Calcium Carbonate Market- Segmented by Type, End-User Industries, Application and Geography - Trends and Forecasts (2016 - 2021)" report to their offering.
Calcium carbonate is most commonly used as a filler in a variety of applications, including paint, paper plastics, adhesives, etc. It is a major raw substance for construction materials and is also used for purification of iron. It is further used as a dietary supplement for calcium, and as an additive for thermoplastics, such as polyvinyl chlorides.
Calcium carbonate is a key component in additives and sealants, and a major raw material for cement production. It has a few environmental uses, as well, due to its basic nature. It is used for desulphurization of flue gas and also as a neutralizing agent in case of acid rains. In agriculture, it is used as a component of fertilizers, especially in the case of acidic soil.
Growth in the paper industry directly affects the consumption of calcium carbonate, which has replaced kaolin in the paper industry. This, along with the focus on alkaline-based processes instead of acid-based processes, has led to the growth of the calcium carbonate market. Calcium carbonate has excellent chemical and physical properties, which has led to it being used in various end-user industries.
