Manganese Carbonate Market: Snapshot

Manganese carbonate is a water-insoluble compound   of manganese that can be changed over into other manganese mixes, for example, manganese oxide by calcination. Manganese carbonate usually occur mineral rhodochrosite. It is accessible in various colors, for example, red, pink, yellow, gray, and brown. Also, manganese carbonate can be utilized in value-added applications, for example, glaze colorants. It can likewise be utilized as a substance middle of the road for union of other chemicals. Besides, manganese carbonate can be utilized as a hematinic as supplement a business.

According to Transparency Market Reassert TMR's, the global manganese carbonate market, which was evaluated in 2016 to be around US$322.2 mn, is anticipated to reach nearby worth of  US$464.1 mn before the finish of 2023. The market will display a CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period from 2015 and 2023.

By the by, the potential uses of manganese carbonate for the purpose of concrete staining is expected to support its deals in future. concrete staining is gradually developing as prominent strategy to make durable, decorate, and simple to keep up home surfaces. The rising utilization of manganese carbonate to recolor solid surfaces will reinforce its scope in the future years.


Increased Usage of Manganese Carbonate as Micronutrient to Help Global Demand

The rising utilization of manganese carbonate as an important farming micronutrient will extensively fuel their deals. This chemical is regularly added to plant composts as a treatment for crops with manganese-insufficiency. Farming part still holds strength over a few rising economies in Latin America and Asia Pacific. Thus, these regions are anticipated to give lucrative chances to manganese carbonate makers, as they project rising demand regarding micronutrient manures.

Since, manganese carbonate is utilized as a colorant in pottery and porcelain items, their expanding use in the homeware sector will fuel request from the manganese carbonate market. The homeware market observes lucrative open doors in the Middle East and Africa and Asia Pacific. Demand for porcelain and pottery is consequently high over these areas, which converts into expanded scope for manganese carbonate deals.

Advancement in Farming Techniques to Support Dominance of Asia Pacific

Geographically, in 2014, Asia Pacific represented the maximum demand for manganese carbonate. The region held more than 75.5% share of the global manganese carbonate market, as per volume. Demand for manganese carbonate remained at 264,677.6 tons in 2014. India and China were among the most elevated supporters of the Asia Pacific manganese carbonate market. The fast development in the area's farming sector is required to seal Asia Pacific's strength in the global manganese carbonate market.

Other than this, Latin America likewise offers growing scope for manganese carbonate makers. Even here, the development of the farming sector helps demand for manganese carbonate. In the Middle East surge for coat colorant in agrochemical applications will reinforce future scope for the manganese carbonate market. However, in developed regions, for example, Europe and North America the market is estimated to observe just small development.

Some of the key players leading in the global manganese carbonate market are All-Chemie, Ltd., Alfa Aesar, American Elements, Mil-Spec Industries Corporation, Airedale Chemical Company Limited, Zncus Chemical Co., Ltd., and Sunrise Enterprise.

Manganese carbonate is a water-insoluble source of manganese that can be converted into other manganese compounds such as manganese oxide by calcination. Manganese carbonate occurs naturally as mineral rhodochrosite. It is available in variety of colors such as pink, red, grey, yellow, and brown. In terms of demand, agrochemicals accounts for major share of the global manganese carbonate market. Additionally, manganese carbonate can be used in other value-added applications such as glaze colorants. It can also be employed as a chemical intermediate for synthesis of other chemical compounds. Furthermore, manganese carbonate can be used as a hematinic in the medical industry and as supplement in the food industry.


Manganese carbonate ore deposits are commonly found in South Africa, China, Gabon, Ghana, and Brazil. Obtained through underground excavation, these deposits are subjected to the beneficiation technology in order to remove undesirable impurities. The Xialei manganese mine at Daxin, Guangxi, China; and Nsuta manganese mine, Tarkwa, Western Region, Ghana are two of the largest deposits of manganese carbonate ore in the world. The Nsuta manganese mine is owned and operated by Ghana Manganese Company Ltd. (GMC). Majority of manganese carbonate ore from the Nsuta manganese mine is exported to Ukraine, China, and Norway. CITIC Dameng Holdings Limited, an investment holding company, owns and operates the Xialei manganese mine.
