Global Calcium Carbonate Market: Snapshot

Calcium carbonate is one of the most common compound extracted from the crust of Earth and is used in in different industries, including paper, building and construction, cements, plastic, and sealants. On commercial front, calcium carbonate is available in two main types, to be specific ground calcium carbonate (GCC) and precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC). PCC is obtained because of reaction solutions of calcium hydroxide and carbon dioxide, while GCC is extracted by processing and crushing limestone into powder of calcium carbonate. The properties of GCC and PCC that incorporates particle size distribution, fineness, and color, helps in meeting the technical needs of the product for various applications.

On the basis of detailed analysis in the report the growth of every one of those ventures, and a few others, will keep on surging the demand in the global calcium carbonate market at a considerable CAGR of 5.0% during the forecast period from 2017 to 2025. As per the research, the global calcium carbonate market is foreseen to reach around worth of US$22,311.06 mn before 2025, considerably more the end of 2025, from the market's assessed valuation of US$15,158.33 mn back in 2017.
