The ground calcium carbonate segment is projected to account for the largest share during the forecast period.
The ground calcium carbonate segment is projected to account for the largest market share, in terms of value, during the forecast period. Ground calcium carbonate is widely used as fillers in the plastic, rubber, and paper industries because of its low cost. It also provides brightness to paints, coatings, and paper. Furthermore, it provides a high level of illumination and light scattering properties.
The plastics end-use industry is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
Based on end-use industry, plastic is projected to be the fastest-growing end-use industry of calcium carbonate during the forecast period. This is due to the increasing demand for calcium carbonate-reinforced polypropylene from the automotive industry and the ability of calcium carbonate to enhance the properties of plastics and help in improved heat dissipation
APAC calcium carbonate market is projected to account for the largest market share during the forecast period.
APAC is estimated to be the leading calcium carbonate market. The growth in the region can be attributed to the growing demand for calcium carbonate from various end-use industries such as paper, plastic, adhesives & sealants, and paints & coatings.
