Calcium formate is presently approved for use as a preservative in feed for all animal species. However, it is not authorized as a food additive in Europe. The ruminal and intestinal contents and manure use formate as a natural constituent. The study on the tolerance with chickens and cattle for fattening by feeding the species at concentrations greater than that proposed displays no adverse effects on the safety of the species. The same studies have been proven safe on the feed for pigs, poultry, fish, and ruminants. However, the addition of calcium formate to the calcium supply of animals should be examined when formulating diets. As the use of calcium formate as a feed additive in all animal species is considered safe for the consumer, the calcium formate market is expected to grow during the forecast period.

Calcium Formate to Witness Surge in Demand Post Pandemic

The COVID-19 crisis had a major impact on almost every industry, owing to stringent worldwide regulations to contain the spread of coronavirus. The long-term effects of such a crisis are predicted to dwindle the calcium formate market during the forecast period. The ongoing research amplifies the research framework to ensure the inclusion of underlying COVID-19 issues and potential paths forward. The advent of COVID-19 has confused the situation by depressing the steel agrochemical, animal feed, and others with disrupted existing supply chains. Measures introduced to deal with the crisis such as lockdowns, limited trade activities, and temporary closure of various factories and workplaces in several countries are expected to save lives. These measures proved to be a negative economic impact, influencing economic failures. Essential sections of manufacturing have been closed in various countries across the globe, in response to lockdown orders issued by authorities in such countries and the postponement of public transport services in many places across the globe.

The global industries have experienced a shortage in supply of raw materials such as formic acid, calcium hydroxide. This has resulted in a critical demand-supply gap. Producers are expected to be stranded on raw material quantities due to the limited functioning of logistics and trade. Furthermore, the growth in chemical, animal products, and utility businesses has been principally managed by efficiency profits and increased reliability. However, the disruptions caused by the pandemic have affected various end users limiting the demand for calcium formate presently, which can affect future growth. Post-COVID-19, it is expected to slowly overcome the demand gap as several end-use industries will desperately try to flatten the curve. Moreover, the increase in the demand for animal feed during the pandemic is boosting the calcium formate market during the forecast period.

Increase in Consumption of Raw Materials in End-use Industries Propels Market Demand in APAC

The vast variety of applications of calcium formate in numerous industries such as in the leather industry as a masking agent in the chrome-tanning process, is driving the calcium formate market. The addition of calcium formate to the tannage formulation develops faster, more effective penetration of the chrome in the leather. Moreover, as an additive to grouts and cement, calcium formate allows several features useful in the final product. The addition of calcium formate is useful at low temperatures and imposes restraint of corrosion of metal substrates. When used in gypsum board, calcium formate functions as a fire retardant. Furthermore, calcium formate is ordinarily used as a component of an ensiling agent for the silage treatment. The utility of calcium formate in the silage suppresses the formation of side reaction products such as propionic acid. The growing use in the applications of leather tanning, cement additive, and silage treatment is anticipating a surge in demand for the calcium formate market during the projected period.  

The calcium formate market is expected to witness heavy demand as feed additives for animals in the upcoming years. This can be attributed to the health-enhancing regulation for animal feed from various governments across the world. A healthy feed is beneficial for the animal digestive system, which has influenced the increasing demand for additives and preservatives to produce healthful growth of livestock. Additionally, the growing meat and dairy segment is increasing the demand for animals and animal feeds, generating new opportunities for the calcium formate market. In addition, the demand for meat products in the Asia Pacific has been increasing at a rapid pace with the rise in meat consuming population. The Asia Pacific is expected to be a highly lucrative region for the calcium formate market during the forecast period.

Capricious Market Behavior to Hinder Market Growth

Rising disposable income of people, reducing interest rates, and increasing migration are influencing the growth in the construction industry. This is most likely to fuel the demand for cement additives proving propitious for the global calcium formate market. However, the volatility in the prices of other raw materials in construction can possess major challenges in the calcium formate market. Furthermore, high-energy expenditure and low process performance result in increased production costs. Therefore, calcium formate manufacturers tend to look for effective options to cut down the production expense and increase profit margins. This is likely to hamper the market growth. Nevertheless, the global calcium formate market is expected to reach ~US$ 700 Mn by 2031, expanding at a CAGR of 4% during the forecast period.
