Calcite is a carbonate mineral and it is the most stable polymorph of calcium carbonate (CaCO3). Calcite is a very common mineral, mainly it is the main component of limestone and marble. These calcite are very common and are available in enormous percentage in the Earth's crust. The calcite market is mainly divided into precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) and ground calcium carbonate (GCC) globally.
Calcite Market Dynamics
- Increased utilization of calcite in remodelling and construction activities
The demand of calcite is expected to drive the increasing demand of superior-quality and technically advanced products. The increase in the use of calcite in construction and remodeling activities due to their high strength and hardness has also contributed to the growth of calcite market.
- Increasing the use of calcite in agriculture sector
Calcite is the form of calcium carbonate which are mostly used in the field of agriculture. It is used for better growth of the plants and crops and also helps to absorb the water from the environment, it keeps the soil moist and soft.
- Growing demand of calcite in paper industry
Calcite has been witnessing the immense demand in paper industry. Ground calcium carbonate (GCC) and precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) are witnessing traction for the production of paper. PCC continues to be the favored material for the production of paper due to their operational flexibility it renders. The adoption of PCC in papers industry has enhanced the printing surfaces and brighter papers. The rising demand of PCC and GCC in paper industry are expected to drive the growth rate of the calcite market.
Moreover, the favorable chemical properties of calcite, cost-effectiveness of calcite and development in the polymer and plastics production are some major factors that are expected to increase the demand of the calcite in the market during forecast period of 2022-2029.
- Surging the growth of construction industry
In recent construction, calcite is used in the form of limestone and marbles to produce concrete and cement. Marbles are used for showcasing the beauty in several patterns and colors. The increase in demand for, kitchen tabletops, marble flooring, and bathroom countertops will create beneficial opportunities for the growth of the calcite market in the upcoming years. Moreover, in India, the construction industry has received a lot of investments through venture capital and private equity investments.
