With Over 80% Application Exposure to Industries Decimated by the COVID-19 Pandemic, Calcium Carbonate Demand Slumps by Over -5.3%

The global market for Calcium Carbonate is expected to decline by -5.3% in the year 2020 and thereafter recover and grow to reach US$32.2 billion by the year 2027, trailing a post COVID-19 CAGR of 5.8% over the analysis period 2020 through 2027. Demand dynamics for calcium carbonate is closely linked to trends in the paper, automotive, plastics, and construction industries, which are characterized by high degree of cyclicality. With the major end-use markets bearing the brunt of economic recession and business uncertainties amid the COVID-19 crisis, the impact on the market remains fairly evident. Consumption of calcium carbonate is likely to sustain significant losses in the year 2020. Sharp drop in paints & coatings, plastics, adhesives & sealants, and other end-use verticals, is negatively impacting the prospects for the market. The paper industry remains worst affected with paper consumption in educational, corporate and commercial end-use markets plummeting sharply on the back of office closures and fears of virus transmission via newspapers and other printed paper materials. Although new opportunities have emerged for the paper industry during the COVID-19 crisis in the form of food packaging products, personal hygiene paper products, corrugated packaging materials and medical specialty papers, the sharp decline in traditional verticals continues to deter overall momentum.

On the other hand, contraction in the paints & coatings industry, the second major end-use sector, is having a strong negative impact on the market. With steep decline in construction and automotive sectors, the primary consumers of paints and coatings, demand for calcium carbonate remains negative in the paints and coatings industry. Likewise, the crisis induced weakness in plastics and adhesives & sealants industries that is clearly visible across commercial and consumer markets are aggravating the decline in demand for calcium carbonate. Market participants such as Omya AG, Imerys, Minerals Technologies Inc., Huber Engineered Materials, Mississippi Lime Company face the challenge of with pandemic induced difficulties with relation to running their businesses, production operations, sales & distribution activities, and also customer support services. While the US, the most affected nation in the world, continues to register high number of daily cases, several Western European countries where the infection rates have subsided dramatically during May-July period are currently experiencing a second wave of the pandemic. Spain, France and the UK are among the countries that are witnessing sharp increase in number of daily cases since mid-August. India and several Latin American countries are also seeing considerable rise in infection rates, thus pointing towards a rather lackluster outlook for the market in 2020.

In the post COVID-19 period as market fundamentals return to normalcy, demand will come from calcium carbonate's extensive use as an alkalizing agent, whitening agent and mineral filler in a broad spectrum of applications across several industries. Nano calcium carbonate will gain significant attention from the research community, mainly for therapeutic applications. Materials based on calcium carbonate feature high degree of biocompatibility and biodegradability, making it an ideal carrier for delivering drugs, enzymes and genes. Researchers are investigating new methods to use nano calcium carbonate for therapeutic applications. Some of the potential uses of these nanoparticles include antibacterial agent and delivery of cancer drugs or genes for targeting cancer cells. These promising applications will offer new growth opportunities. The environmental benefits of calcium carbonate will make a comeback with redoubled vigor and importance. Calcium Carbonate holds immense relevance in curbing the emission footprint of pulp and paper industry, which is typically characterized by high energy consumption, air pollution, and carbon emissions. Precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) and ground calcium carbonate (GCC) are the two forms of calcium carbonate utilized as filler material in alkaline wood-free papermaking and other processes in the paper industry. Furthermore Calcium Carbonate, when deployed in high-performance concrete systems, improves the concrete's flow ability and other mechanical properties to ensure more effective handling and reduced transition time at the final construction site, which eventually curtail the carbon footprint across the entire process. Power stations are another major area where calcium carbonates can be deployed to minimize the carbon footprint and greenhouse gas emissions. Calcium Carbonates, when incorporated in the power plant scrubbers, can seamlessly remove and neutralize sulphur and other air pollutants to substantially reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from power stations. During the process, Carbonates combine with sulphur gas to produce by-products such as calcium sulphate and gypsum, which provide feedstock material to make gypsum board, a well-known building material.
