The global calcite market is projected to register a high CAGR during the forecast period owing to widespread applications of the product in construction industry :

Pune, India, January 2019/MRFR Press Release/- Market Research Future has published a half-cooked research report on the Global Calcite Market.

Market Overview

Calcite is a natural mineral, extracted from mining in a rock form and processed into powder, granules, and slurry for end-use applications. The abundant use of calcite in construction industry for cement, paints & coatings, adhesive and sealants, and others in form of marbles and limestone increases the demand for next five years. Pharmaceutical also found to have sustainable demand of calcite due to acid-neutralizing ability in preparation of medicines.

Market Segmentation

The global calcite market has been segmented on the basis of type, form, application, and region.

By Type, the global calcite market has been divided into Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC) and Ground Calcium Carbonate (GCC). The PCC segment is expected to be the leading type of the market owing to high–purity and cost–effective mineral used as a functional additive in end–use applications.

Based on Form, the global calcite market has been categorized as powder, granules, and slurry among others. Powder is the fastest growing form of calcite used as a calcium supplement for animal feeding application.

On the basis of application, the global calcite market has been categorized as animal feeds, adhesives and sealants, glass and ceramics, cement, plastics and rubber, paints & coatings, pulp and paper, pharmaceutical, agriculture, and others. Paper and pulp application accounted for the largest market demand due to cost-effective quality paper production and delivering high optical and printable properties. However, the use of calcite for cementing application has also a sustainable development and expected to increase the demand during a forecast period.
