The Global Calcium Carbonate Market size was valued at USD 45.06 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 53.25 billion with a growth at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.80%, in terms of revenue, from 2020 to 2027. Increasing demand for paper from packaging applications and hygiene-related products like tissue paper is a major growth driver for the market. However, the product demand witnessed a decline in 2020 owing to the outbreak of the coronavirus. The pandemic caused widespread shutdowns across the globe, which significantly impacted the economy worldwide in the first half of 2020. With the ease in restrictions in the second half of the year, companies are putting in extra efforts to resume their operations, which is a positive sign for the market growth.

The U.S. has been a prominent destination for the product considering high demand from industries including paints & coatings, adhesives & sealants, and paper manufacturing. Paper is the largest application segment of the market and the U.S. is amongst the world’s largest paper manufacturers. Despite the pandemic that majorly impacted the country’s economy, the demand for calcium carbonate continues to persist, especially in the paper production sector owing to a growing emphasis on cleanliness.

According to the American Forest & Paper Association, the U.S. paper and wood products industry recorded high levels of tissue production in February and March 2020. The U.S. mills produced around 700 kilotons of tissue in March. Factors like lockdown and extra hygiene concerns led to panic buying and stockpiling of tissues and other cleaning products, thereby, benefitting the market growth.
Despite the demand for calcium carbonate in the paper segment, the market witnessed a dip in 2020 owing to restricted transportation, a halt in manufacturing operations for non-essential industries, and the shutdown of mines across various regions. Several market players reported negative sales and profits for the first half of 2020.

For instance, LafargeHolcim, an integrated player of the market, reported a 14% profit fall in Q1 of 2020 as the pandemic caused building sites to shut down around the world. The company mines limestone, produces calcium carbonate, and uses it to manufacture cement, which is further catered to the construction industry. The company had to stop its mining activities in March 2020 in Meghalaya, India due to lockdown; however, the operations resumed after a couple of months as mining activities were allowed by the state government with the enforcement of social distancing norms and proper hygiene conditions.

Key players are: AGSCO Corp.; Carmeuse; Blue Mountain Minerals; Carmeuse Lime & Stone Company; GCCP Resources; GLC Minerals, LLC; Greer Limestone Company; Gulshan Polyols Ltd.; ILC Resources; Imerys; J.M. Huber Corp.; LafargeHolcim; Midwest Calcium Carbonates; Mineral Technologies; Mississippi Lime; Mountain Materials, Inc.; NALC, LLC; Omya; Parchem Fine & Specialty Chemicals; The National Lime & Stone Company; United States Lime & Minerals, Inc.

Analyst Commentary

Paper emerged as the largest application segment in 2020 and accounted for a revenue share of more than 47%. Calcium carbonate is added as a filler to the paper pulp or is applied as a coating pigment. Its addition enhances the brightness and opacity of the paper. Although the internet did impact the print media market, it did not restrict the demand for paper in other applications, such as packaging and tissue paper.

The current pandemic has compelled manufacturers to ramp up their production to cater to the rising consumer needs. For instance, in August 2020, Celulosa Argentina announced an increase in its production for paper packaging by 30%. The company’s focus was on the food industry as the demand surged in this sector. With a rise in the e-commerce sector and growing usage of tissue papers, the paper application segment is anticipated to continue its dominance over the forecast period.
Paints & coatings segment was the second-largest application segment. The product is used in several applications in the paints & coatings sector; it acts as an agent for reducing or enhancing gloss, as an extender, a rheology modifier, and as an additive for increasing density. Despite the many uses, the product demand was impacted in this application segment in 2020 owing to a halt in the manufacturing operations, which disrupted the entire production & supply chain of the paints & coatings industry.
Although the production has resumed with ease in restrictions, the rising cases of COVID-19 and operations at minimal capacity are still matters of concern for the market players. Certain companies have adopted strategies to cope with this scenario. For instance, Asian Paints a leading player in Asia, has launched a new range of products in the health and hygiene segment. The company is running a “Safe Painting Campaign” to boost their sales. In addition, the company has also begun a “San Assure” service for sanitizing homes, workplaces, and shops. Such initiatives are anticipated to increase the demand for paints & coatings, thereby leading to market growth.

Segmentation

The calcium carbonate market is segmented on the basis of application and region. By application the market is divided into Paper, Paints & Coatings, Plastics, Adhesives & Sealants, Others.

Regional Analysis

Asia Pacific dominated the global market and accounted for the largest revenue share of more than 43% in 2020. The region is anticipated to expand further at a steady CAGR from 2020 to 2027 due to rising investments in the infrastructure development and manufacturing sector. However, due to the pandemic, the manufacturing operations and supply chain have been immensely impacted. Apart from China, all other major Asian countries have reported negative GDP growth for the second quarter of 2020.

Economies are putting in extra efforts for the proper functioning of operations in different sectors by maintaining essential protocols required during the pandemic. As the operations resume, certain industries have reported positive news; for instance, automotive sales in India went up in the past two months. Also, the demand for paints & coatings and vehicles is anticipated to increase, which, in turn, will augment the demand for calcium carbonate.

North America was the second-largest regional market. Though the region has been severely impacted by the pandemic, the end-use industries of the market have begun their operations at minimal capacity considering the rise in consumer demand. Industries including medical, packaging, and DIY are boosting the demand for products such as adhesives and paper, which is a positive sign for the calcium carbonate market.

The U.S. held the largest share in the North America regional market and is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. Considering the product demand in the country, companies are engaged in boosting their production capacities and expanding their presence in the country.
For instance, in March 2020, Anglo Pacific Group PLC announced about entering into a financing agreement with Incoa Performance Minerals LLC for funding the construction of a calcium carbonate mine and infrastructure associated with it in the Dominican Republic. In addition, a processing facility will be constructed in Mobile, Alabama, the U.S. Incoa Performance Minerals LLC shall manufacture high-quality GCC for catering to the U.S. market for various end-use applications including adhesives & sealants, rubber, and food & pharmaceutical products.
